How does FOX contribute to your success?
Winning races is about having the best possible equipment, the best team and being smart. Using FOX is smart - it's just the best equipment you can put on a Trophy Truck.
Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
Geiser Brothers Trophy Truck #1 is a 800 hp Race truck with 25 of front travel, 33 of rear travel, FOX 4.4 Piggyback, and BFGoodrich Tires. The second Geiser Trick Truck #76 we run for BITD series has the same specs.
What else is in your garage?
Ford F150, Porsche Cayenne, full suspension mountain bike, beach cruiser, Cirrus SR22 G3Turbo, Cessna Centurion 210, and Pilatus PC-12.
What's your training regimen?
Running with my dogs, and playing basketball with my son.
Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
I hurt my knee pretty bad when we backflipped the Robby Gordon Trophy Truck at Laughlin in 2010. It's as healed as it's going to get, but hurts after a few hundred miles in the truck.
What's your typical pre-race/event meal? Guilty pleasure?
I try not to eat a lot before the race, it could be a pretty long day out there in the desert. I always stay really hydrated before the race. Guilty pleasure is definitely pizza and chocolate covered macadamia nuts.
How do you determine which races or events to enter each year?
We are racing the full SCORE series and full BITD series this year. We won the Trophy Truck Points Championship last year, and are going for two this year!
What motivated you to get started professionally?
I don't play golf.
What separates you from other professional athletes?
I don't really consider myself a professional athlete. My business keeps me super busy and while it's what allows me to race, it's what keeps me away from racing sometimes too.
What would you be doing if you weren't a professional athlete?
What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
Getting up in the morning and doing what you love.
What other sports are you interested in?
I don't participate in any other sports, but I go to a lot of my son's sports games. I like flying and snowboarding.
Any advice to the readers dreaming to turn pro?
Stay focused. Take good care of your health and surround yourself with the best equipment and people!
