Fun fact: The more air you are catching, the more fun you are having.
How does WTB contribute to your success? You spend a lot of time sitting on your seat and having a place to plant my butt that comforts me for all those hours. I’d call that a success.
How you started out competing? My dad took me to the BMX track in 1975 for my first race and that’s where it all began.
First experience with a bike: Well I’m sure I rode around the streets before that first trip to the BMX track, but when I was 4 years young the biking started.
Who do you look up to? I look up to a lot of people. I try to surround myself with good people and most of them all have some qualities that I admire.
Other activities(off the bike): Moto.
Beverage of choice: Lemonade.
Place you have always wanted to ride: Bolivia… my wife is from there and the mountains are huge. There have been many riders who have done shoots there and it looks like a cool place to adventure.
