This month’s YT Mob Log is a bit different from the rest. We let the Mob’s rookie racer play media hack and interview the man himself, Aaron Gwin. Read along as Angel grills Aaron.
AS: What’s your favorite coffee at Starbucks?
AG: Oh, favorite coffee….for sure it’s just black iced coffee. I always order it black and drink it down just a little bit, then I add half n’ half. But I have to have the mixture right so I don’t let them put the half n’ half in for me, I have to do it myself. I don’t like black coffee so I only drink a little bit and it kind of like, I don’t know, charges me up. Then I add the half n’ half and I just, enjoy it. I never drink it for energy, only enjoyment. My coffee time is usually in the afternoons.
AS: What do you think about there being not many races in the U.S.? Do you think it’s strange, because many of the sponsors are there?
AG: Yeah, for sure, I would love to see more races in the US. I mean I’m from the U.S., but I think for the sport, and in general, it would be good to have races there, so yeah, that would be sweet. It would be nice to have more races there. I think it would be fun to just have more races internationally, just to move them around a little bit more, no matter where we’re going. Just to hit different fan groups and stuff, but I understand there’s additional expense to go over there and race and to do different things. It kind of is what it is, but it sounds like they’re moving in a positive direction and there’s plans to get some more races outside of Europe in the next couple of years, so that’ll be fun, just to change it up. I just like changing the tracks up a little bit– it keeps it fun.
