Athlete Interview

Tell us about yourself? I started racing mountain bikes when i was 16. I rode and raced moto since i was 3 and raced BMX until i was 12. I got into riding bikes from my older brother Ryan who also use to race downhill. I have lived in Amarillo, Texas my whole life. It has been hard to become a professional downhill racer living here because it is so flat, but i make the best of it and work with what i got. I love traveling, i kinda have to if i want to ride good downhill courses. Haha. I just want to keep riding my bikes, train hard, and have as much fun as possible while doing it.

How was the off-season?
 It went very good. I have been training hard and getting ready for this up coming season. I have never trained for racing, so it is a huge difference than just riding my bike to get ready for races. And now racing at the pro level, being in shape plays a huge role in racing. I can already tell a huge difference in my riding now that i am getting more into shape. The new Devinci Wilson is riding awesome and i feel really comfortable on the bike. I believe that if i keep training hard, build my endurace, get more skills on and off the bike, and find the right people to help me out, i can be on the podium in no time.

Now that you have upgraded to pro what have you been doing to prepare for the upcoming 2011 season? 
Lots of hours in the gym and on the spin bike. I don't have an XC or road bike, so i ride alot on my dirt jumper and downhill bike. I am starting to ride XC on my downhill bike, just stiffen up the suspension and go. Haha Gotta make the best of what i got to work with.

Where can we see you rocking the D26 gear this up coming season?
 All of the Mountain States Cups, Tahoe GRT, Creste Butte GRT, Solvista Tripple Dhip, Crankworx Whistler and Crankworx Colorado, Camp of Champions, and lots of other races in between that I will keep posted.
