2010 Rider of the Year

Favorite Riding Spot: Col de la Bonette (French Southern Alps) : It’s the highest path in Europe, drop in at 2700m. Amazing scenery, fast ride, lots of turns.

How did you get started? I heard about it, and after watching a couple of videos I knew I had to have one. Bought it online (first online order ever), and started riding on my own, on my local mountain paths!

How long have you been riding? 6 years.

Best Freebord memory: Summer '08 in the 2 Alps and the Italy trip with CHoE. Two great weeks with the crew, having fun, riding, and filming.
