Put your feet up, enjoy the next 15 minutes of some of the wildest scenery and perfect trails/parks on the planet, then go plan your own adventure.

Name: Trent Jones Number in Rio: 279 Country: New Zealand Result: 13th
What kind of preparation did you do with the National Olympic team before you took off to Brasil? Trent Jones: Not a lot, seeing I employ a private coach, Sean Dwight. In which we had a plan to train in Chula Vista prior to the games. In which Connor Fields came back on board with training under Sean so we spent 8 solid weeks together knocking out the work that needed to be done to prepare.
