/ Cross Country, Enduro, or else? Why?

If I had to categorize myself as a rider, I’d have to say, “That’s so enduro bro!” I love discovering new trails. That’s the way that I have always ridden my bike. I look at Enduro as a big adventure. Endure the climb to kill the decent. Its weird that I don't mind the climb. Normally, I am swearing at my self the entire climb even though I enjoy the pain, but once I get to the top, typically, the view captivates me for a few minutes, then its all hoot’s and hollering down the trail. I don’t really race any more, maybe one here and there, but I look at it any ride as a race against myself, continuously improving my skill, speed and confidence while having fun. One of the thoughts that constantly race in the back of my mind is, “Slow the heck down dude, you've got a little girl and woman to take care of at the end of the day…. So just make it home in one piece!”

/ Lloyd or Harry? (Hint- “That John Denver’s full of sh*t man.”)Why?

Lloyd or Harry? Definitely Lloyd, I’d have to say that I am the one typically with the bad idea and wont give up. Its always that end result that I am after! Once I have something that I know that’s worth chasing, I chase it and chase it hard. Also I definitely pride my self on my ability to make awful and goofy faces. On that note…. “G’day, mate! Let’s put another shrimp on the barbie!”

/ What bikes do you own?

My  weapon of choice is a Transition Smuggler with a twist of course.

/ Carne asada or pork carnitas?

Pork Carnitas for sure! The thought is making my mouth water….
