Interview

Where is your favorite place to ride?
Whistler, Canada. There's so many tracks and always people stoked to ride.

If you weren't a Pro Rider, what would you be doing? 
I have no idea, probably a fireman. Definately not sitting in a office job!

Who are some of your favorite bands? 
Pennywise, Blink-182, Offspring, Hilltop Hoods and Illy, to name a few.

What do you like most about riding for Fox? 
The Fox kits and protection are the best out. So, if I wasn't sponsored I would be buying it anyway. Just being supported by Fox is awesome.

What motivates you to ride MTB? 
I just love riding my bike so much I don't really need motivation. But getting beaten by people at races keeps the fire burning.

As a Pro, what is your most proud MTB moment? 
When I finally got a podium at a World Cup this year. After being so close on a few occasions in the past I finally got 2nd place in Leogang this year.
