    Rotoburners Age

    26 now. Riding MTB since 12, racing (DH) since 16, but only now racing XC since 25. The best decision i've made. Now that i have got my partner an XC bike, we ride together rather then her just driving Shuttles (Prior dh life). Also some BMX racing thrown in there as well.

    What shoes do you wear

    I have been using a pair of Puma urban swade 'sp' street kicks with the must have Phat laces. nice and flat, but not to soft. But have been looking into some of the new Shim DX flatties as the next 'foot to pedal' interface.
