 There was a lot of comments yesterday around the NZs Secondary Schools DH competition and the lack of a similar program in the States. Did you guys ride in Secondary School comps and how beneficial was it?

 How awesome is it to be sponsored by DEWALT? Do you get all the wireless tools you want? Rather than give out stickers, do you give our drill bits?

 Eddie, being the better looking brother and up until recently having more success than Wyn, how does it feel knowing you have a far superior social life? I hear that National Lampoon has reached out to you and the Vanzaks to make a film about you all... I hear it is to be produced by Brazzers.

 Can you describe how your personalities are different? The same? How has that changed since you two were wee lads?


Wyn, you seemed so relaxed at ALL times. How do you interact with the many other top WC DH'ers who seem so serious and so competitive much of the time.
  • 2 0
 I probably take things a little more seriously sometimes but i got 2 years on Eddie so it makes sense. I guess hasnt changed much. Yeah I enjoy trying to get a little more than the average sponsor plug race interview from these guys a lot them put their serious face on at the races but really they are good characters themselves
