Además de ser uno de los nombres más sobresalientes del circuito mundial de carreras, Will Royce es reconocido en la escena DH por dos cosas principalmente: dedicarse a recorrer el mundo en busca de spots y bajadas dementes para practicar DownHill, (en gran medida, esta es la razón por la que terminó en Colombia participando en La Doble Colombiana: El Festival de la Bajada y Lomalinda DH 2015); y segundo, por mantener un estilo único y bastante característico a la hora de romperla en cualquier tipo de terreno sobre su longboard.

Aprovechamos y nos tomamos un descanso durante el Lomalinda DH para hablar con este grande sobre su trayectoria, sus “secretos” y algunas de las cosas que se le pasan por la cabeza a la hora de competir. Esto fue lo que nos contó.
