TA: I would say they are going to "freak out" I know that I would if I was in the crowd.
Does anyone in this rider group have a chance to win or do you have a favorite for the victory?
TA: I think that anyone can. The ones that have a chance at winning are the ones that believe that they can win the contest. A favorite for me would be anyone invited. Every rider that was chosen to ride is truly a great person/rider.
How stoked are you to be chosen to ride at the COB?
TA: "Stoked" would be an understatement . I am sure I will remember this contest when I am an old man. It means everything in the world to me to be apart of an event for flatlanders that truly gives us the respect that we deserve.
