How does FOX contribute to your success?
Running their shocks has given me confidence in my equipment to hit things hard.

Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
My setup is two 2011 Yamaha 450s.

What else is in your garage?
A dual sport bike along with a couple bicycles for training.

What's your training regimen?
I try to workout every day. Most of the time I am training other kids, so I have to keep it fun. We usually do unique things like push a wheelbarrow up my driveway. Or to multi-task, stack big rocks for a retaining wall!

Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
I broke my leg pretty bad. It was not fun and I took the time to recover fully because I didn't want to go through that again.

What's your typical pre-race/event meal? Guilty pleasure?
I don't really have a pre-race meal. The one thing I always eat is a banana, other than that, it fluctuates.

How do you determine which races or events to enter each year?
I really enjoy endurance racing like GNCCs. I live in the bay area so I ride the AMA District 36 Series, National West Hare Scrambles and whatever GNCCs I can get to.

What motivated you to get started professionally?
When I was little, my big brother Patrick had a dirt bike and he used to ride it around the yard. It wasn't long before I was begging him for a turn. I was hooked ever since. My love for riding has allowed me to continue pushing, also I do like winning!

What separates you from other professional athletes?
I teach riding schools. I enjoy racing/riding and think it's a great environment. I want everyone to have the chance to ride like a pro and be involved with this industry.

What would you be doing if you weren't a professional athlete?
I would probably have a "real job!"

What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
Getting to travel around and meet so many awesome people.

What other sports are you interested in?
I play on a soccer league. I enjoy watching motocross and supercross.

Any advice to the readers dreaming to turn pro?
Come take one of my classes and I will teach you how to!

What are your favorite magazines and websites?
Cycle news, Racer X, and my website.

Favorite movie quote?
Just about everything from "The Hangover."

Who is your hero?
Dad

Are you a Mac or PC? Mac
