How does FOX contribute to your success?
Having control on the trail and the ability to stick landings is paramount. That's how FOX helps me every day.

What else is in your garage?
More mountain bikes! Also a Honda CRF 450x and a Ski Doo Rev 800. And lots and lots of tools.

I'm on the extremely strict All-Sorts Training Regimen that includes riding my bike, strength training in the gym, and fishing for mental balance.
Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
Broken legs and arms, and random other skeletal fractures. Fishing helps recovery. Surfing too.

I think I would still be a confused college student.
What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
I get to ride my bike every day.
