|Justin's favourite trick, the infamous hitchiker kickflip to backpacker.|
"I met Justin in 2002 at a CFB contest in Joliet, IL. I needed some air in my tire and asked to borrow his pump. At the time Justin was competing in the expert class. To be completely honest he was not a stand out rider at the time. He hung in the back of the lot riding alone, seemed pretty shy, and its safe to say no one thought in just 2 years he would make a mark so deep in the scene that his name would never be forgotten. Two years later I traveled to Japan with Justin for the KOG contest that he took a well deserved 1st place in the expert class. I can remember watching his run and thinking to myself, how will I ever beat this guy when he turns pro? Funny I thought that because he then turned pro and whooped my ass at just about every contest on the map. He took the win at the BMX Masters, Voodoo Jam, and even grabbed a NORA Cup in those years as well. It was obvious Justin was not at these contest for making friends. He was there for business, for blood, he was there to win!
