You spent a week in Bethlehem recently.

I like this spot; the different lines, and different style jumps. I love the Chicken line at Catty.

Why would you hit that enormous line second run of the day? 

The jumps are similar to Caracas Trails, my spot.

How is Bethlehem trail scene compare to Brazil?

It’s different. In Brazil most of the trail sections are straight, maybe one hip. Here it all hips, left, right.

What are you plans for your Brazil summer?

Riding and Digging at Caracas, and my other local spot, Hero Trails.
