#101 Tyler Villopoto

Tyler Villopoto might have one of the most unique stories in all of two wheeled sports. You may already recognise Tyler's last name? After all, he is the younger brother to multi time motocross/supercross champion Ryan Villopoto and has himself been in and out of professional racing for many years. However, like many other motocross riders before him he has recently discovered mountain biking and has made the switch to racing downhill.

During this episode Tyler talks about growing up racing motocross with older brother Ryan, being home schooled in order to pursue a professional career, injuries, witnessing huge family sacrifices and the negative side effects of professional sports. We also discuss the differences between both industries and why the skills picked up from motocross racing often transfer to a downhill bike so well.
