GENEARAL MANAGER DUALSPORT PLUS
Clint MacBride’s passion for motorcycles began when he first started learning how to ride at age seven. Growing up, Clint competed in Canadian wide trials events with the Canadian Motorcycle Association and the Amateur Trials Association. In 2000, Clint’s many years of trials riding won him the Canadian Intermediate Trials Championship title.
Clint’s love for riding has never changed and he continues to participate in adventure bike rallies and events throughout Canada, USA, and Europe. Clint is currently focusing on improving his riding skills to compete on the Canadian team for the 2018 World BMW Challenge – a prestigious honour for all riders around the world.
Clint loves to share his passion for riding with others. On alternating Wednesday nights during the summer, he leads other riders on an off-road/on-road adventure through gravel routes that explore the beautiful Southwestern Ontario. Riders leave the Dualsport Plus shop in Brantford, Ontario, at 6 pm and return just after 8 pm. For more information on Clint’s Ride Nights, please watch our website and Facebook group.
Clint’s current favorite adventure bike is his 2016 KTM 1190 ADV R. The KTM is a great choice for extreme off-road as well as a very competent on road machine, making it perfect for all adventures.
When Clint isn’t out riding, he enjoys a good round of golf, and spending time with his wife and two children.
Being the General Manager at Dualsport Plus lets Clint share his passion and riding adventure stories with existing and new customers. Clint and his team at Dualsport Plus strive for perfection in service, sales and customer satisfaction by going the extra mile.

Rick can only describe himself as one thing - hopelessly obsessed with dirt bikes.
Rick has been part of the Dualsport Plus team since 2009 as the Lead Technician. Rick’s extensive work experience and education in the Mechanical Engineering, Fluid Power/Automation program from Mohawk College and later studying Motorcycle Technician Apprenticeship program at Centennial College, give him a well-round knowledge base for all your service needs and solutions.
Rick started riding at the age of five, and was instantly hooked by the thrill it gave him. By the age of 10, he began working on his own bikes, and knew that the mechanical path was his calling as he grew up.
In 2004, Rick started racing dirt bikes, competing in Hare Scrambles/Cross Country, Enduro, Motocross, and Trials events. Rick is also an active member with Steel City Riders, a private track for riders. Rick can often be seen at Steel City off road racing, wearing his race number 266.
Rick’s life moto is that a person can never have too many bikes, and that is exactly what he lives by! From a 2015 Beta XTRAINER, to a vintage 1978 Yamaha DT250, he enjoys his many bikes for their own riding experiences and features. Rick also owns a 2009 Yamaha YZ250 and a 1999 Kawasaki KDX220R.
When Rick’s not racing one of his bikes or working in the Dualsport Plus shop, he enjoys trial/goon riding with family and friends (especially with his fiancé and nephew), playing guitar, shooting/hunting and fishing. Given the right winter weather conditions, Rick also enjoys ice racing, where he can show off his flawless riding skills.
Matt’s passion for riding began at the age of six, and he was instantly hooked on anything that had two wheels. His very first bike was a Yamaha YZinger quad, and soon after, he got a DS 80 mini bike. Growing up, Matt spent a majority of his free time riding bikes in fields and bush lots close to his family’s property in Burford, Ontario. As Matt entered into his teen years and early twenties, he spent time working on many motorcycle and snowmobile race teams, where he travelled across Quebec and Ontario during the winter.
Matt started working at Dualsport Plus after it was purchased by Carrier Centers in July of 2014 as their know-it-all sales guy. With his knowledge and passion for riding, this makes Matt the go-to person at Dualsport Plus for parts, clothing, and all things bikes.
When Matt isn’t working at Dualsport Plus, he’s working with the award winning Waznie/Szoke Superbike Racing team as their Chassis Mechanic. Matt has worked closely with Jordan Szoke on this team for over six years and has shared a few Canadian Championships with the team.
Matt’s current ride is a 2014 GasGas 300, along with a collection of vintage trials bikes. During the winter months on Sundays, Matt enjoys shredding and showing off his ice racing skills on his Gasser. When Matt isn’t working or riding, he enjoys spending time his wife and two French Bulldogs.
Tylor recently joined the Dualsport Plus team in May 2016 as a Technician completing his apprenticeship.
Like his other team members at Dualsport Plus, Tylor also shares a passion for riding. His passion began 11 years ago, when he got his first Street bike, a 1982 Honda Nighthawk CB450. Although Tylor’s love for street riding has always been near and dear to his heart, he is starting to get into adventure riding with the Dualsport Plus team and loving every minute of it!
Tylor’s love for bikes just doesn’t stop there. Tylor also enjoys working on small engines. Having completed his Yamaha bronze level training and small engine training courses, combined with his work experience prior to coming to Dualsport Plus, makes him a perfect fit for the team!
Tylor currently rides a 2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 custom; a perfect machine for cruising all of Ontario’s beautiful roads. If Tylor isn’t out riding or working away at Dualsport Plus, he is an avid hunter, enjoys fishing, and hanging out with friends. Tylor is also spending his spare time rebuilding a 1974 Honda CB750.
