How does FOX contribute to your success?
Well I haven't ridden FOX before so I'm all new to it but I'm looking forward to riding it and have always wanted to ride their shocks so I'm stoked to be working with them.

Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
Well I like the front end hard but not too hard, just enough not to bottom out, and the same for the back with a little rebound turned on.

What else is in your garage?
XC bike, jump bike, lawn mower, wheel set and tires.

What's your training regimen?
Basically road ride and gym for core strength and some intensity stuff.

Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
Just came off of a fractured ankle and was lucky to not have surgery but I couldn't really recover - I hate being inside but mainly just chilled out with mates.

What's your typical pre-race/event meal? Guilty pleasure?
Pasta with a big bowl of salad.

How do you determine which races or events to enter each year?
Well basically it's up to the team really so just whatever they decide really.

What motivated you to get started professionally?
I always dreamt of being at the top of the Juniors, that's what got me started.

What separates you from other professional athletes?
I think I am pretty determined compared to other riders but in saying that, I wouldn't know how determined the other riders are.

What would you be doing if you weren't a professional athlete?
A builder. I think I am doing that now and am enjoying it so most likely that.

What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
I get to travel the world and I'm lucky because I get two summers so that's a bonus too.

What other sports are you interested in?
Rugby. I think I would try to make a career out of that if I wasn't mountain biking.

Any advice to the readers dreaming to turn pro?
Make the most of it. You have only got one chance so give it all you have, really.

What are your favorite magazines and websites?
Bit of FHM, dirt and best website would be vital or dirt.

Favorite movie quote?
Haven't really taken much notice on the quotes really.

Who is your hero?
I'd have to say Ricky Carmicheal.

Are you a Mac or PC? Mac
