“I grew up on a bike. Doing everything from delivering newspapers, to going to friends houses, to building jumps and trails in the woods to play on. It was how I got to work in my high school years. I remember challenging myself all the time trying to get to a previous destination quicker than the time before. After college I discovered mountain biking through some motocross friends. At that point I quickly realized this was something I wanted to do a lot of, and I did. I found a real hobby, passion, that I still get the same feelings from I got on day one.” – Jay Petervary
