Volante is announcing a new version of Liam Morgan’s pro model wheel today in 82a, so we decided to drop Mr. Greasy a line and see what his thoughts were.
What’s the deal with your new wheel?
Nothing too crazy, same shape. Similar feel in the urethane just in 82a so it breaks loose a bit easier and doesn’t wear as fast. (more…)

With Danger Bay [Scoot's hometown event] being only a few days away, I thought it was timely to hook up with my man Scoot Smith for a little Q & A. I’ll always remember Scott as the guy with green hair that was, and still is, fast as hell. With the plethora of skilled riders that come out of BC, some come and go like a whisper in the wind. Some hop on the band wagon, race for few years and then you never see them again. I’ve never really known why riders usually drop off but it’s racers, true speed freaks like Scoot, that helped really put downhill on the map. Soon to be iconic, if not already, this Pender Harbour local started racing years back …and as far as I can remember, he’s always in the top 10, if not standing on the podium along side the greats.
Dan Pape: Scott or Scoot, which do you prefer?
Scoot Smith: It really depends who it’s coming from. When I’m working my day job as a drywaller I don’t introduce my self as Scoot. If I’m at a downhill event I don’t introduce myself as Scott. I’m fine with Scoot or Scott…. I’ll respond to both. (more…)
