Rabaconda Rider Daniel McCanney [Q&A]
Daniel McCanney loves riding around on the Isle of Man. His advice to new riders: watch a few races first and then try entering something local. Check out our Q&A with Danny: How did you get started in riding? I started riding when I was three years old. My whole family has always been involved with motocross. What do you do when you aren't riding? What are your hobbies? When I'm not riding, I'm either cleaning and preparing my bike or relaxing at home with my girlfriend. What do you do in the off-season? In the off-season I take it a bit easier for a few months and relax, and then before the start of the season I start training again. Do you have any pre-race rituals? I always have to touch wood. This is a Manx ritual. I know it sounds weird but that's what I do. Where's your favorite place to ride? Your favorite track? My favorite place to ride is anywhere on the Isle of Man, but especially Jurby. What was your best moment as a pro rider? My best moment was definitely winning the 2014 Enduro Junior World Championship. What are your riding goals? My riding goals are to be the fastest and win the most races. What is your advice for those just starting out? My advice to those starting out is to watch some races to learn and then enter some local club races. Why did you choose Rabaconda 3-Minute Mousse Changer? I chose Rabaconda because of the simplicity of carrying around the tire changer and how much easier, faster and less effort it takes for changing tires after a long day of riding.
