Eliot Jackson - King of the Scrub, American World Cup shredder, and an internationally acclaimed Mac model - tackles the Fast Five.

What was the worst part about racing in Europe?
Language barrier. If we don't speak the same language we both end up getting pissed at each other, or playing some weird type of charades.

Rumor on the street is that you're going to school...what are you studying?
Yep. I'm studying computer science.

What is your favorite US venue for DH racing/why?
Port Angeles, by far. It's my favorite track here and it's a lot different than the typical ski resort races. It's just a really relaxing atmosphere.

If you had one do-over in life, what would it be?
Definitely wish I would have started racing a year earlier so I could have ridden Schladming.

On a scale of 1 to 1000, how important is winning the 2012 Whip Off Worlds contest?
1000. You know, we just missed it this year and we've definitely gone back to the drawing board a bit this off-season in preparation. So yeah, you know, the goal is just to try to get some bigger whips and we're going to tweak a few things to hopefully come out with the W next year. Thanks Erin. I mean Vital.

Watch as Eliot nearly whips the grin off Parkin's face:
