How does FOX contribute to your success?
They are always pushing the edge in race shock development. That's what it takes to win.
Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
All of our setups are TOP SECRET! The key to being the best we can be is constant testing and hardwork that creates wins and championships.
What else is in your garage?
Honda motorcycles, AlumiCraft 3-Seat Grande Car for the Sand Dunes, ATV's for the Utah cabin and lots of parts and tools.
What's your training regimen?
I usually run on the trendmill for 45 minutes each day at 5:30 a.m. before the work day starts. During race weekends I'm bouncing all around the race track and the desert so I'm busy all day long.
Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
I'm lucky, I've never had any major injuries.
What's your typical pre-race/event meal? Guilty pleasure?
Carne asada tacos and maybe the garlic shrimp plate from Rice N Beans in the beachside town of San Felipe.
How do you determine which races or events to enter each year?
We schedule the premier series to race in along with the television packages involved in each series to provide the biggest marketing return for our sponsors such as FOX.
What motivated you to get started professionally?
My dad was a racer in the Las Vegas, NV area in the early 1980s.
What separates you from other professional athletes?
