Favorite Trail? So many favorite trails throughout the U.S, but for my area: Marquette's '225 Resurrection' is a Black Diamond that offers the perfect balance between gnarly tech & some flow - and also 'Jawbone' at Marquette Mtn Bike Park for super fast flowy jumpline bliss.
Favorite Post ride food? Steak Tacos or Buffalo Wings
Post ride beverage? A nice cold, crisp Pilsner 
Post ride spot? Anywhere there are good vibes. 
How I connect to the sport? On the serious side I compete as an Enduro racer in the Lake Superior Gravity Series, a 6-event season that spans from Spring to Fall, with occasional entries in enduro events in the Southeastern US as well. From a recreational standpoint, I like to travel all over the country to ride epic trails and bike parks as a MTB tourist. Europe is next... 
Climb of shuttle? BOTH, period. Depends on the location and what you plan to get out of the day.
Biggest Crash? Luckily nothing too terrible, but I did knock my teeth through my lower lip with my handlebars this past season at Skypark Bike Park in California after sliding off a wet wood feature. See kids... never ride gravity without a full face! lol 
Never leave home without? Helmet, Water, Multi-tool, Shock/Tire Pump... and a smile.
