30 seconds is all Panagiotis Manaras was given to answer some quick - and random - questions from us
Who is your sporting hero and why?
There's more than one - I call them "Fantastic 4" and they are Joe Rich, Ruben Alcandara, Mike Aitken and Matt Hofmann.
How do you unwind after an exhilarating bike session?
I unwind by talking with my friends about the session, our future plans and various stuff from our everyday life. I also meet with my girlfriend - you know, some massage therapy and relaxation...!!!
Where is your favourite place to ride in the world and why?
My dirt park Bogiatiland, because it's my home and I learned to ride there. Then there's Austin Texas at Terrible One's backyard, and Hush trails because I have amazing sessions there.
What is your biggest gripe in life?
When I run into traffic control police and they stop me to check my papers.
