HOWIE ZINK - The Inside Line Podcast

We are pleased as punch to sit down with a man who's own personal history is so interwoven with the history of our sport. Howie Zink has a deep and rich relationship with mountain biking. Beyond being the older brother to freeride icon, Cameron Zink, Howie has his own stories of globe-trotting exploits, brushes with greatness and heartbreak. Listen in as Howie walks us through his journey from riding his dad's mountain bikes to heading the US division of Pyga Mountain Bikes. Along the way, he recalls a junior Sam Hill, how he was beaten by Wade Simmons at Crankworx and defeated Brandon Semenuk in a video contest. Howie is a proud father, a businessman and a mountain biker and we hope you appreciate his story as much as we did.

Santa Cruz Bicycles is encouraging you to support local businesses and bike shops as much as possible in these challenging times. I went to santacruzbicycles.com/dealers, typed in my zip code and up popped Joyride Cycles in Boise with a solid fleet of Santa Cruz demo bikes. Do it safely and according to local government stay-at-home orders, but if you can, support the local shops that support your mountain bike scene. The more people we get on bikes now, the more we’ll have on bikes in the future.
