Fav tire
Maxxis Ignitor, I run 2.1's most of the year, switch to 2.3's when it gets slick.
 
Fav drink
choc milk
 
Style of riding
Tech cross country, the more tech the better. Other stuff is fun, but I prefer the challenges without it being too sketchy. My idea of sketchy may differ from yours though.
 
travel
Current bike is 130mm, I think it is perfect for me.
 
Race
I've only done 1, to see what it was like. May do another in the future on a team.
 
Clean bike?
I clean it when it looks really trashed. I do clean the drivetrain after most rides though.
 
3 day weekend.
Not sure, I loved riding up in NC and N Georgia when I got the chance.
 
Last beer was a Yeungling, on draft. ;)

    It depends on my mood. I haven't done any Freeriding or "total adrenaline" (yet).

5 inches of travel or 3 to 4?
    Depends on the trail. I loved my HT at Boyette, the 4.3/4.3 Rush at Alafia, I'm building a 6/6 Super-V for Santos and out-of-state, and I'm picking up a BMX soon for jumps / pump track / urban

    Santos, Alafia & Boyette combined (neither are big enough for a three-day weekend by themselves), and Rocktown, GA

Last beer you had?
   I was 15 and it tasted like piss, so I'm a liquor drinker

What's your favorite rainy season tire?
Since I haven't had the opportunity to ride my new Nevegals in the wet, I'll have to say my old Panaracer Fire XC's..because in the 08' Squiggy mudbog, I never slipped one time.
 
What's your favorite recovery/exercise drink?
Plain old water
 
What's your favorite style of riding - Mild free ride, anything with speed, high berms and nice flow. But like NI, if it's off road, I can dig it.

Race for fun and competition, or win at all cost?
Fun and comp, although if I could go fast enough to place, my motivation would increase accordingly.

Clean bike after every ride, or wait a few if not too bad?
Rarely wash my bike ever...I brush out the drive train, and clean pivots, but water is the world finest solvent, and I avoid using it on my bike at all costs

Three day weekend - what's your favorite trail? (pick 3) Carter, Santos, Boyette

Last beer you had?
Bud Light (it should have been a Yuengling..OUTSTANDING beer. :D )

When you ride so far out that you hear no traffic, no people...nothing..
