The Goat Cave Podcast (Ep:87-Dave Thomas, Joyride 150's General Manager)

Today's guest is a Southern Ontario rider who has been shredding and racing for close to 20 years. Not only is Dave Thomas an unreal rider who has sent some gnarly moves, like front flipping the biggest box jump at joyride, but he also plays a huge role for our community as he is the General Manager of Joyride 150. Over the last year Dave has been putting in a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure we all can continue to ride Joyride after the Covid-19 pandemic. To top it off, Dave has also built himself a pretty rad truck, and is the man behind StanceIsEverything.com.
