It’s funny what you remember about certain people in your life. I’ve known Julian for over 20 years now, and I knew who he was long before we’d actually met. He was a big shot bike racer and I was a lowly slowpoke. To this day, I clearly remember the first conversation we ever had: we were at Silver Star resort for a Canada Cup race.

One night there was some sort of dirt jump contest and we sat in folding chairs at the end of the course and chatted for most of the evening about all kinds of different things. I was so intimidated by the idea of him but he turned out to be such a genuinely nice, open and friendly guy.
