Mark recently started a 501c3 with some friends called Friends of Stafford Lake Bike Park. Their mission is to ensure that the bike park makes it to fruition, which is quite the feat with local county officials and residents. Overall, he's truly grateful for the life he has been able to build around his passion for the sport. "If you don't remember the hands that lifted you to where you are today, this place you are at will not live long. You are only as good as the people that surround you. I feel I'm surrounded by the best."
