JRA: Mitch Ropelato 10

Take a shuttle to the top with Mitch Ropelato. He talks about everything from doing flairs to riding for the Steve Peat Syndicate. If you get car sick, just sit back and listen to a budding, frothing young rider. The end is awesome!

    Box Hill? Didn't think there was much to ride in Surrey. Unless a mountain bursted up, lol. Great interview, hope Mitch goes a long way, seems like a quality dude! Only good things can happen when you've got Peaty around...boom, BOOM!

    Yea, I like his attitude. He joined the SPSNA so he could ride and have fun instead of heaping on tons of pressure racing on a factory team. I do wonder though, is he sponsored by the SPS or did he pay in like the rest of the team?

    No roots or rain in America!!?? I know the UK has great riding but... Washington and Oregon have amazing rooty, wet, steep, and fast terrain.
