"I always liked Kert's riding a lot before we were even on the same team. I just thought it was gnarly that he was doing all these gnarly pegless grinds like toothpicks and icepicks. I didn't have a good idea of what to expect until I met him on the Killed By Bone Deth Tour this last summer. He is very quiet, and only speaks when something needs to be said. He eats really healthy. Definitely not the average fellow. I think he saves up all the vocal energy and uses it in his explosive riding style! Kert is just a very calm and collected guy with incredible bike control. He's one of my favorites for sure." -Dirt Ron Pitcher
