TAR 29: Matt Ladley
« on: March 15, 2017, 06:42:59 AM »
Biography


 
Age: 25
Hometown: Steamboat Springs, Colo.
Current occupation: Professional Snowboarder

Describe what you do: Compete in snowboard contests.   

3 words to describe you: Ambitious, versatile and determined.   

Favorite hobbies: Adventuring Colorado, backpacking, climbing and biking.     

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? That I followed my dreams and didnít give up when people told me I was unrealistic.   

What scares you most about traveling? Getting sucked into the toilet on the airplane.   

What excites you most about traveling? Exploring new places and realizing how small our little worlds back home can be when you see what the world is really like.   

What qualities do you hope your partner has? All I want is somebody who wonít give up, that is most important to me. You don't have to be the fastest, strongest, or smartest to win. Itís the personality that can stay positive and continue that will go the furthest.   

What qualities will be hard for you to put up with in a partner? Complaining, somebody who is easily frustrated or ever says the words ďI can't.Ē   

What do you think will be the biggest challenge you and your teammate face? Probably navigating foreign countries in a language I donít understand.   

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Iíve always wanted to go Indonesia. It looks beautiful, I love boats, and I have never been to that part of the world.   

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Getting to see a little more of the world than I have before. Iím used to mountain towns and ski resorts so I look forward to a variety of other things. And hopefully I get an awesome partner and make an awesome new friend!

Redmond gives off that 1st impression very well. Now the choice makes more sense.

I like the optimism he has even though he and Redmond were fighting for last place. :torche He still gave the best effort he can on the last task.

I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined

Interesting to hear his thoughts, this one was kind of a social media recluse all throughout the season. One tweet, and his Facebook fan page has been long idle.

Andy & Tommy shoutout :lol:

Well, we've had 3 Pro Snowboarders, one a team (Andy & Tommy, S.19) and Matt, both finished the Race in 4th place. Bring (Matt & Redmond) back for All-Stars, they were one of the better M/M teams to Race IMO.
