I saw Zane Schwenk like Friday. He was driving the 04 Xstar at the Junior Tri-X comp at TSR. He rode the Showdown Thrusday I think

I got to talk to him at a tour stop and he has got to be one of the nicest pros out there. He is from ohio too so we talked for about 1/2 hour about cedar point and riding on lake erie. super nice guy.

I met zane at the local stop on a friday, I didn't get to go to the prelims on Saturday, but when sunday rolled around he still remembered my name and we talked some more. Mad props to him man, I couldn't have done that and I'm sure he meet so many people. He's super nice too.

Zane came out and filmed with us a couple weeks ago in Atlanta before the Ambush/Buywake comp and then came to the comp and partied with us in the evenings. Real nice guy.

Rob is an awesome guy. I had the privelage of hosting him and his wife at our boat show this year in February. I know he's been nursing some injuries from the past. He did well at the first stop but has dropped a little since. He's still my favorite rider out there though.

Rob was at the frist pro tour event and was one of the only riders who really slayed that new inovative slider they put out there. He did well at the contest just missing a placing. He is still kickin it

Rob and his wife are really good people, we rode with him out at his private lake last year. They were super cool hosts, made us feel totally comfortable and his lake is sweet, has a pavillion out there, a few crazy sliders, that crazy ass land gap that is free4all i think. Rob was totally patient and helped out with some of my riding.

I would have to agree that Rob is one of the most stand up pros out there, nothing has gone to his head at all.

Man, I can't even tell you how awesome Zane is. He's my favorite pro.

When I broke my leg a few years ago, I contacted him as a shot in the dark via an insider-type pal of mine, and he actually called my house and we talked for about a half hour about riding, rehab, getting back on the water, all that stuff.

It was one of the coolest things he could have done. AWESOME guy. He's like Sean Murray in that they are amazing ambassadors to the sport. Zane rulz.
