My favourite track to race on is … Papendal, just one first straight makes for good racing … although they should build a decent second half of the track, it is missing a nice rhythm and that last straight is no fun at all.

The best track to just shred and have fun on is … other than my home track in Winterthur, I did like the Rio track to have some fun. That track was so flowy at 80% and no first turn 😉

The scariest track to rack up in a race is … first year Papendal was pretty scary, London Test event time-trials were scary… but mostly because of the wind and the first straight berm jump. The track itself must be Manchester with the step-up and Madrid Outdoor (did not make it to the race in Spain).

The single best straight on the planet is … Rio second straight for big jumps … Zolder last straight for passing.

Traditional or Supercross, my choice would have to be … Supercross, make them tracks big!

The track I’m most looking forward to racing on in 2018 is … Paris, looks like a fun French version of an SX. There is a couple of events I’m looking forward to …Worlds in a place like Baku will be sick. Euros for elites only will be an interesting one as well and a new track too! I miss the times where everyone showed up for first practice and no one has ridden the track before.

My favourite track to race on is … anything flat and wide open. EG Sweden Suoercross, Argentina Supercross, Rockhill.

The best track to just shred and have fun on is … Beijing Chula Vista, downhill flow …

The scariest track to rack up in a race is … the dreaded Indoor SX round, which is the Manchester pinball arena!

The single best straight on the planet is … Girls 3rd straight rhythm on Rio Replica (Chula Vista). So many lines!

Traditional or Supercross, my choice would have to be … a hybrid … SX 2nd,  3rd  4th. straights with a traditional front straight.

The track I’m most looking forward to racing on in 2018 is … Paris. Never been but looks fun on the videos. Especially seeing they opened up the front straight into a drag strip.

My favourite track to race on is … Medellin, Colombia.

The best track to just shred and have fun on is … can’t come up with just one track, I think any track in the sun with a good group of friends is fun to ride!

The scariest track to rack up in a race is … I haven’t ridden it yet, but probably the new Chula Vista London/Rio track.

The single best straight on the planet is … Papendal’s first straight.

Traditional or Supercross, my choice would have to be … I like wide open Supercross tracks but I feel like to many tracks have a big hill, but the track is a bit too tight for the speed we get from it. I rather race a good ‘traditional’ track than a SX track that’s too tight.  

The track I’m most looking forward to racing on in 2018 is … Baku, I always like going to tracks I’ve never ridden before.

My favourite track to race on is … Papendal, wide open, fast and great for racing.  It’s challenging and you have to have a complete package to do well. 

The best track to just shred and have fun on is … the old Chula London track, so much fun. 

The scariest track to rack up in a race is … Manchester SX.  It’s way too tight, steep and dangerous to race on in my opinion. I think there’s No way we should race world cups there.  

The single best straight on the planet is … the old Chula London rhythm section, fast tech and has a sick triple out at the end.  My all-time favourite.

Traditional or Supercross, my choice would have to be … Supercross, I love it. Much more fun and challenging than traditional BMX. 

The track I’m most looking forward to racing on in 2018 is … Papendal!

My favourite track to race on is … not sure, none of the tracks I’ve raced yet have been perfect … without it’s side wind, Papendal could be one.

The best track to just shred and have fun on is … Valmiera, Latvia, love coming back to that track once in a while. The two start hills are good for interesting training sessions.

The scariest track to rack up in a race is … Manchester is tight, fast and steep! Perfection is needed to ride there but it’s not easy with eight people side by side.

The single best straight on the planet is … Dessel BMX in Belgium, it has a really interesting third straight.

Traditional or Supercross, my choice would have to be … traditional because it has more opportunities for fun … it can be tight but it’s safer racing, there are still crashes but the height and speed reduction reduces the force of the fall.

The track I’m most looking forward to racing on in 2018 is … the Glasgow European championships, most of UK tracks have good rhythm and flow, hope to see the same in this track.
