What parts do you go through the most?
“Chains and seat clamps.”

What is the oldest part on your bike?
“My wheels are about a year old.”

How much does your bike weigh?
“My guess would be 20.5lbs.”

Favorite track?
“Dacono BMX, Dacono Colorado.”

Do you have the altitude training advantage, being from CO?
“If our laps were longer I think it would be an advantage. I always do well at Salt Lake though which is a bit lower then Denver, so possibly.”

Anything about your bike set up that has to be perfect before you ride?
“I’ve found a set up I like and I don’t like messing with things. As far as bike set up, I’m good about putting my bike together after a flight and not touching it until I put it back in the bag. If the bars are a bit crooked I get use to it. If something rattles I zip tie it. The only thing that bugs me is I’m always checking my air pressure in my tires. All in all I’m really liking my bike set up this year.”
