HOMETOWN: Squamish BC
BIRTHDAY: April 8 1974
RIDING DISCIPLINE: Bikes
BIGGEST INFLUENCE(S) ON YOUR RIDING: Chimonez and Cody Begon. Now we look to Steve Peat and Greg Minnar a lot for coaching influence. Have to shout out to Lopes because he is always on the gas and I love that!
SPECIAL TALENT: Making people fast
FAVORITE RIDING LOCATION: Squamish
WHAT GOT YOU IN TO RIDING?: 2-wheeled monsters have always haunted my dreams. MTB came thru a love for snowboarding and trying to find something to do after blowing my knees racing MX. MTB provided a new freedom and a fresh new world to explore.
FIRST ‘REAL’ MOUNTAIN BIKE: Norco Nitro.
PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE: Those that mind don’t matter, and those that matter don’t mind.
PERSONAL CATCH PHRASE: “When the gate drops the bullshit stops!”
FAVORITE MUSIC: Social D, Johnny Cash, Lamb of God, and then lots of chicky stuff. I am sucker for a songbird.
IF I WASN’T A ‘PRO’ RIDER I WOULD BE: Helicopter Pilot. It’s never too late is it?
