I'm Caleb and I'm a "freerider," but let's be honest here, I'm just a guy that loves to ride his mountain bikes. No matter what bike it is, I'll be hollerin' down the trail with a huge smile on my face. There's nothing like riding with your friends and that's what I'm all about, really. I love to dig jumps, build trails and stack dirt. Gotta earn your laps.

FAVORITE MOMENT OF 2019
Watching my friend, Emil, ride down the Rampage course safely after an insane build week. The feeling of relief was indescribable.
Would you rather spend money or save money?
Spend, why else would we try to get it our whole lives if we only saved it?
Would you rather drive a car or a pick-up?
Pick-up, because four-wheeling, camping and shuttling in a car just doesn’t cut it for me.
Would you rather watch a comedy or a horror movie?
Comedy for sure. I’ve never been into horror movies.
Would you rather be unable to use search engines or unable to use social media?
I’m going to go with social media. It’s just not necessary. Having the world at your fingertips through a search engine is way too convenient.
Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or always be 20 minutes early?
20 minutes early, there’s more time for coffee that way.
