What year did you start BMX racing?

I started racing in 1996 in Louisville, KY at Derby City BMX.

What is your favorite track you have raced on?

The London Supercross track we raced on last year was pretty good. It was a little different with 8 people on the track because of the narrow first straight was. But overall I really liked riding the track. I know they are making some changes soon, so we will see how it turns out.

Who is your most feared competitor?

My own mind.

What is training regimen like on a daily basis?

I recently got a new coach and we seem to be clicking pretty well. We are addressing a lot more of the whole body and not just my legs like I used to. I am working a lot on power and my dig all the way to the first turn.

Do you do other types of riding?

I used to ride so much park and trails about 5 years ago. When I moved to college it was pretty much track only. But recently we have been working on our little set of trails. We have a pretty good 6 pack going to keep the skills and handling up to par. I miss the flow quite a bit. So my goal this summer is to build some pretty good stuff.
