Started riding very easy downhill on my hardtail about 5 and a half years ago. Had that hard trail until last year when I got my first fully, and a second 6 months later (2009 Trek Remedy then 2010 Trek Session 8.) Just starting my racing career but I ride once a week and am hoping to place well in the upcoming CCCX races. I've ridden Northstar twice, as well as Demo Forest 3-4 times a week. Hopefully, I get to go to COC this summer and shred it at Whistler.
