What's up! I left a set of spiked snow tires in the bike room that year! I left in an ambulance and wasn't able to pack my own stuff so I figured hopefully someone is putting them to good use. Yeah, I think its important to bob and weave and make changes when necessary. Basically doing what feels right is probably the best way to roll and sometimes that means making changes. I'll be honest, it was a gamble to stop competing, but I'm happy how its been working out. Busier than ever these days. Thanks so much for the support man, I really appreciate it.

Its actually kind of good for whipping, you can use it to bring your whip back like the bump stops on a dual crown. You're right, no barispins or tailwhips with the knock block. That can be frustrating. The good folks at Trek are working on a custom one for me that will be barspin and tailwhip-able.. Thank goodness. bearskin when i type bearskin it auto corrects to bearskin. come on! Barspin! there we go.

My wife is originally from Bend and we were visiting up here a lot. I really started to like it, plus I already had friends living here, Jamie Goldman, Kirt Voreis, Carson Storch, etc. Its a really good place to raise a family, plus more affordable than Santa Cruz, so all those pieces came together and we decided to make the move. I'm gone a ton so a lot of the time when I'm home, I'm hanging the with wife and kiddos / getting caught up on stuff. I've definitely done some jump building here since I moved but no trail work. That'll be something I'd like to be involved with in the future when I'm not gone so much.

First of all, thanks, I appreciate that a lot. As for slopestyle features being more standardized, I think its something that needed to happen, but I also think the courses need to continue to evolve to match not only the level of riding, but the level of entertainment. There was a time when you showed up to a slopestyle course and you never knew what to expect. As a result, you couldn't do the tricks you had been practicing, so the level of the competition didn't reflect the level the riders were on at the time. First you had to adapt to the course, then you figured out which tricks you'd be able to do. Now, riders have more of an idea what they can expect to see on the course, and they can train appropriately. We fought real hard for a long time to get some degree of standardization from course to course and now it exists and the riding level is off the charts. Now... With all that said, will there come a time when either the tricks plateau, or every run starts to look the same to the average viewer? I think so... At that point it will be important to re-introduce transfer options or peculiar features to the courses. Stuff that gets the fans excited when they look at the course, and even more excited when they see a rider not only ride the feature but trick it. That was one major contributort to the entertainment value of slopestyle when it started in 2003 and I think it will be something thats important to bring back at some point. Whatta you think? Are we there yet?
