Michael Austin


HOMETOWN: Beautiful Walla Walla, for 53 of my 58 years

FAVORITE RIDE: North Touchet/Luckenbill, but make sure you ride clockwise (seems to be an on going argument regarding direction on this one)

HOW MANY BIKES DO YOU OWN? 12 or so.  Functioning units that I could jump on ride...that's a different story. 7?

FAVORITE BIKE: This all depends on the day, Mother Nature, and how much coffee has been consumed.

FAVORITE BEER: This is easy, the newest one on my list is Counterbalance Tabletop Supernova IPA

BEST RIDE FOOD: Whole wheat fig bars from Andy's Market/Hammer Perpetuem.

BEST/WORST RACE ACHIEVEMENT: Gosh, the list of my two best race achievements (my only race achievements!) is so long...Probably winning the 2011 WA. State CX championships. Let's just say the list at the other end of the spectrum is much longer.

FAVORITE NEW BIKE IN THE SHOP: Rather enamored with the 2016 Jamis Dragonslayer. The ideal plus size Mountain Bike / Bikepacking machine.
