How does FOX contribute to your success?
FOX has been able to provide equipment that gives me confidence to hit things hard.
Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
My race day setup is a 250 two stroke. I still feel that is the most versitile motorcycle that can give me the best chance of winning.
What else is in your garage?
The other toys in my garage are a 24 inch bicycle and a trials bike.
What's your training regimen?
My training regimen consists of time on the bike, running, soccer, and light weights. I try to do something active every day.
Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
The major injuries I have sustained are a broken elbow, wrist, and leg. Time is the only thing that heals. You can't beat the clock.
What's your typical pre-race/event meal? Guilty pleasure?
I don't have a typical pre-race meal. I try and eat healthy but my guilty pleasure would be too much meat and potatoes.
How do you determine which races or events to enter each year?
Other than following the D 36 cross-country series I try and hit other quality events on the west coast such as the Idaho Qualifier and the Funky Chicken Hare Scramble.
What motivated you to get started professionally?
Winning! I tried a lot of different sports but nothing else is as fun as riding a motorcycle.
What separates you from other professional athletes?
In other sports they have a chance to make some money.
What would you be doing if you weren't a professional athlete?
I am also a sales manager for KTM.
What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
The best thing about being a professional athlete is doing what you love to do everyday. Not that many people have that opportunity.
What other sports are you interested in?
I like soccer and other forms of racing - Moto GP, Formula 1, and rally cars.
Any advice to the readers dreaming to turn pro?
Keep if fun and the motivation to win has to come form within yourself.
What are your favorite magazines and websites?
I like the moto related websites such as Cycle News and Racer X.
Favorite movie quote?
In "Caddyshack" when Rodney Dangerfield arrives, everything he says is funny from that point on.
