Tell us about your self, Who you are and what makes you so rad? Most people just call me Haz, I have been riding for pretty much my whole life, starting with BMX racing. Over the last 3 years I’ve made the transition to full time Mountain Biking. I also work part time building trails for iconic trails.
Contests or just riding? Why. Mainly competing in Crankworx events, but more over the past year Freeride content and DH. I just do what makes me happy, if i want to do an event I will, regardless of the style.
What’s your all time favourite mountain biking trip? Basic answer, but Whistler.
What do you love about riding? The creativity and freedom to do what you want, be unique with it and do what makes you happy.
What you’re most proud of achieving through riding? My latest MTB video, “Something to Talk About” as well as my BMX World Titles in Jr classes.
One tip you would give to a grom wanting to become a pro rider like yourself. Don’t try to follow one specific path, stay true to yourself and your passions. Everyone gets there in different ways, and everyone has a different definition of success in our sport - make sure your'e working towards yours. Never expect anything, always deliver more.
