Russell lives in the Tri-Canyon area of San Diego. He loves to ride out his front door on the local trails littered with baby head sized rocks, rutted out DH tracks, and fast and flowy singletrack. He enjoys all the riding areas that the greater San Diego has to offer. Skypark Bike Park and Greer Ranch are also at the top of his list.

Favorite Riding Partner
My daughter, Bera. Even at her young age, she is making big strides and on her way to doing anything she wants to do on a bike. It’s inspiring to watch her learn, get scared, and push through a good challenge.
How did you get into Mountain Biking?
I started riding mountains on a BMX bike before I was a teenager. My brother first graduated BMX with a GT Talera in the late 90s. Needless to say, I borrowed that bike every chance I could and starting getting further out on trails around our house in Northern California.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
Right here in San Diego, or somewhere in the desert where you can ride all year long.
