Introducing the MTBVT team:
Vince Hempsall – Owner/Editor
Position: Editor, writer, publisher, mixologist, barista
Fame: Owner of Wonow Media, a publishing company
Spray: Vince is originally from Canada. He wears red coats, eats maple leaves and fantasizes about beavers. He can ride a bike. Barely.
If you’re a pedaler from North of Lake Memphremagog, contact our Canadian Customer Service team at email@example.com
Ryan Thibault – Owner/Editor
Position: Graphic artist, writer, photographer
Fame: Owner of Bohaus, a design firm that boasts such clients as Louis Garneau, Highland Mountain Bike Park, blah blah blah.
Spray: Ryan lives, breathes and eats bikes. He also eats dirt and crow. If he’s not flying down mountains on his bike he’s either changing yet another flat tire or rustling alpacas.
Send Ryan your cool photos and ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jon Severinghaus – Content Director
Position: Web geek, economics geek, mountain bike missionary
Fame: When not slaving in the MTBVT basement writing code for the promise of poutine, Jon is in his own basement probably messing something up on his bike
Spray: Jon has a big chainsaw. He fondles it. Inappropriately.
Got a question about the website or published content? Chat Jon up at email@example.com
Matthew Montross – Assistant Editor
Position: Gear Reviewer 2.0
Fame: Hardcore MTB x-country racer and gear geek.
Spray: Matt is our resident racer. He still rocks bibbed spandex shorts, just like our favorite wrestler Bam Bam Bigelow.
Knight Ide – Contributor
Position: Freeride Ambassador
Fame: Stone mason, sponsored rider and owner of Ideride, purveyor of all things mountain biking from guided trips to terrain park construction.
Spray: We all want to be Knight. And not just because he has a cool name. He’s also a master on a bike, in an excavator, and controlling his computer’s mouse with his left hand while using his right to… do other things.
Skye Nacel – Contributor
Position: Photographer, Writer, Fitness Guru
Fame: Maker of Mocean Maté and owner of Mocean 365, an outdoor company that deals with film and photo production, fitness coaching and adventure guiding.
Spray: Skye is one of the busiest people we know. He doesn’t even have enough time to hook us up with some free samples of his delicious maté concoctions. Which is why we’re forced to steal them.
Brooke Scatchard – Contributor
Position: Cartographer extraordinaire and trail building genius
Fame: Ever played on the Fellowship of the Wheel trails? Then you’ve ridden Brooke… his work that is.
Spray: Brooke has no problem operating heavy machinery on meds that would make anyone else drowsy.
Mark Tucker – Contributor
Position: Singlespeeder, blogger, New England bike race scene participating documentarian
Fame: Master of obscurity.
Spray: Mark is the reason why nobody dares offer all-you-can-eat meals at bike events.
Amber Thibault – Den Mother
Position: Writer, den mother, whip cracker, quiche maker, & impromptu medic
Fame: Amber keeps us moving…our feet off the couch.
Spray: You think this crew could function without a woman at the helm? Plus she looks good in bike shorts!
