- What are your goals for 2017/Future? I’m semi-retired from professional competition after my injury in 2016 but I love the sport and want to continue to race various events as long as my health permits. My main goal is to help promote and grow the sport for the future riders that will carry this sport into the next generation.
- What was your most memorable sporting moment? Winning my three championships in 2012 would be my standout moment. Up until then no one had won three out of the four class championships and being able to do that and tie for the fourth was the greatest accomplishment I have had in the sport.
- What is your favorite NAHA venue and why? The Northwest Nitro Nationals is my favorite venue. Not only do they have an amazing venue to put on a race, they also invite me down every year to help them build their hill. We have not only completely transformed the mountain there, but have implemented obstacles into racing that have never been ridden before in professional competition. It’s really the “Supercross’ of Hill-climbing in my eyes.
