Soon after he began to race and loved it ever since.

Other notable highlights consist of three 4th place finishes on the NorAm tour - 4th in PSL in Steamboat Springs, 4th in PGS in Holiday Valley and a a 4th in PSL at Copper Mountain in USASA Nationals. Athletic endeavors aside Riley will be working towards a software engineering degree with Concordia University in Montreal when he is not snowboarding.
