The Syndicate's Jackson Goldstone progression has been documented online since he was sending it on his run bike when he was just six years old to double backflips to winning a downhill World Championship. Matt Beer and I sat down with the Squamish local to talk about all that, as well as how to win Red Bull Hardline and why it's so different to a World Cup, what it's like to hit 100-foot jumps, and why being smooth and having fun is priority number one.

 I have a question for the next pod!
The desktop background on my laptop has been the same for 2 years - set the last time PB did a Photo of the Year! What happened to that feature, is it ever coming back? I need more roost pictures in my life.

 When Jackson said “Me and my buddy” a couple of times I was really hoping he was going to say Wade just to troll Levy.

 Can we get a podcast with @mikelevy and "my buddy wade"?

 I just wanted to say how good it was to have Matt Beer on this. No disrespect to Levy, but having a racer of Matts level able to ask the quality of questions he did to Jackson really took this interview to another level. Well thought out and very well-asked questions. More of Matt !

 I think there is a typo on the front page:

"From run bike videos to double backflips and winning World Cups with Trek's Jackson Goldstone"

 @mikelevy Realy like what you do with the podcast but one thing to improve (imho): if you get realy excited you start to ask realy suggestive. "You must be realy stoked to ....". More open questions = more interesting answers

 When they describe an average mountain biker as hitting 20-30 foot gaps, makes me believe that I am below average when it comes to jumping

 How do you people make enough money to live in Squamish? Are they always just rich from someplace else? Can a normal person live there?

 Squamish is cheap compared to living in a mountain town in the US

 Been hearing a lot of rumors on twitter that Hardline is going to have tandem entries next year. Was bummed that the podcast didn't cover that at all.
