another interview of Ross Schnell from Bikeradar.com…
It’s just after 10am on a Tuesday in Laguna Beach, California and professional mountain bike rider ‘Rad’ Ross Schnell – the 29-year-old considers riding, not necessarily racing, his profession – just rolled into work.
His commute on this particular morning consisted of a six-block townie ride down the Pacific Coast Highway from the Casa Del Camino, the beachfront hotel he’s crashing at, to his sponsors CrankBrothers’ office.
The Grand Junction, Colorado native has been here for a week, shooting photos, giving his opinions on the brand’s components, riding and glad-handing media.
Yesterday, he was up before sunrise for a trip up north to shoot photos and test kit with Jason First, CrankBrothers’ sports marketing manager. Then it was back to Laguna for a ride with BikeRadar, but not before a stop at In-N-Out Burger for a double-double Animal Style and a large shake.
