How Long have you been a mountain bike racer? 25 years
What got you interested in mtb racing? John Tomac’s inability to
defend the world championships in Bromont 92.
Beside the Butte 100, what are some of the other events you compete
in? Lots, check them all out here.
What positive effects has competing had on other aspects of your
life? If it were not for mountain biking and racing I would of been a
drug running metal head in upstate NY.
How many hours a week do you train? How do you fit it all in? I
don’t, maybe 6 hours if I am lucky, back in the day no less then 30.
What advice would you give to this year’s Butte 100 racers? Don’t
assume the course markings will stay put.
Any other comments you’d like to make? Sorry to miss out this year (2014)
