Funniest race moment: Any situation I find myself yelling at, or being yelled at by name with my fellow competitors during the race. I love that. Most of the time it involves expletives. Remember that canyon at Jackrabbits in like '04, Big E? That was a funny moment. There are a lot of funny moments in racing for me.... I guess that is appealing.
What you like about the Rovers: The Rovers are a diverse and passionate group. We have everyone from famous world class moto gods to slow goofy hackers with lot's of personality. We have some characters and I like that the best.
