Dan is known for making the nearly impossible look easy and has made a name as one of the best young riders around. This Midwestern rider mixes technical with burly to create well balanced runs. He mixes tricks like the bottom-side toothpick grind with nearly every variation of the tail whip imaginable. Dan began riding in 1996 and has done well in events since then; including a 2nd place finish at the Vans Triple Crown in 2003.
Dan doesn’t have many interests other than riding, but he does love playing Nintendo, four wheeling, and snowmobiling. Sorry ladies, according to him, girls are too much work, he would just rather stick to bikes.
