when did you get in to mtb biking and why:
......late 80's me and my bro sold our little boat we had, he got a old MK1 escort and i got a mtb.
when did you start racing :
89, no sweat races at muddy ford?
why do you race dh?
i ride all things mtb these days, dh just a small part of what i do.
you race dh, have you raced any other mtb events? (xc,4x,etc)?
yes like most riders from the 80/90's era, i raced xc as my main form of racing as this was the main event back then, dh was fire roads, xc was more tech, but i have raced xc,dh,4x,enduro and marathon events as well as on the road.
whats your ride(s) and why did you pick them?
MC Battery, MC rumble, MC 2011 rigs in the coming months. I ride for mtn cycle because they make Quality products.
why do the rider run co team?
I run Rider Run Co and we wanted to get our products out and support some local riders, No BS about supporting up and coming riders and all the standard BS marketing, We sponsor riders that dont fit in to the BS section of youth and junior teams, We sponsor guys that are fast seniors and over looked along with old guys in the masters that are still getting faster and the odd balls that race hardtails. Its a fun team that puts out a great image for us and we are glad we can help them through rider run compnay and our teams title sponsor http://www.freestylextreme.com/ .
how has 2010 gone for you? give us a run down?
This years been a very solid year of media and riding/racing events, Im lucky to have built an image and have a flowing style that has helped me have this role of going to events and being apart of a wide range of mtb events and supporting my sponsors and spreading the word on mtbing as much as i can as its a cool sport that all cyclists can do at some level and have fun on a bike. As for the team it was started at the end of the summer ready for our first full year in 2011 and so far so good.
plans for 2011?
Keeping it short, more of the same.
what riders do you look up to?
in the early days it was tomac, herbold and tinker.
any thanks ?
Yes, As rider run company i would like to thank anyone that has support us, be that buying product or putting the word out about us on other websites etc, thanks guys and girls with more of this we can keep growing and support more people, events and grow as a importer /distro.As a rider i would like to say a big thanks thanks to my sponsors and all the people that hep me or have helped in the past.
