Gary: I have been to three in Toronto and three in Vancouver.
What are you expecting of the trip?
Gary: A good time.
Being in a different part of the world together with fellow riders does that automatically mean good times?
Gary: It doesn’t matter where you are, when you have good friends around, the good times always seem to follow.
What do you think of the drawings of the street course?
Gary: It looks like it is going to be a lot of fun to ride.
Did you work on some new tricks over the winter that you want to do at the Metro Jam?
Gary: No not really, I have spent the winter filming and having fun, plus I am just not the training guy.
Your pick for the win?
Gary: Ooh that is a tough call, but I am guessing Morgan Wade, but Josh Harrington probably wants the title back so we will just have to wait and see.

Modifications: I put a small screw in between my axle and frame that acts as a chain tensioner. I cut my bars and seat post down a bit. I take a bit of the paint off of my dropout so my wheel doesn’t slip. Lastly, I run a larger gear ratio than normal (30 - 10).
