AL: What made you choose to participate in the KZN and National Series?
Dusty: The more I ride the more fun i get to have, with the added benefit of sharpening my skills. KZN also has some big tracks, the bigger the better.
AL: What were your goals for the National Downhill series?
Dusty: I wanted an injury free season first of all. I had initially set the goal to compete in all 4 national races this season and hoping to finish in the top 5.
AL: Are you happy with your overall National series placing?
Dusty: I am indeed happy with my overall placing this season even though I had some bad luck in two of my races. It's an improvement to my previous seasons.( placed 9th overall).
AL: Favourite jump at Cascades?
Dusty: Favourite jump is always a tricky question. ..I have many but there are two that stand out the most and they are Dr Evil and Jugs big one on the world cup track in Pietermaritzburg.

AL: Plans for the off season?
Dusty: My plans for the off season are to spend as much time as possible on both my trail bike and downhill bike. I intend to spend most of this time down in Natal. Awesome riding there!! I also have a personal project in the pipeline. Stay tuned!
