10 Questions - Jon "tha Duke" Dowker

Man I don't even know were to start this one.  I met Jon around 2001 at the first CFB, he had a flyer he was passing out about a party at the Easy St. house in Athens Ga.  A year later I went out on my first BMX tour...solo, my goal was to hit every contest that year, and man that was a lot back then, anyway the last stop of my tour was York Pa.  This also happens to be the second time I ran into Jon.  Jon had drove a van full of trifling m'fer's to this event from Athens.  He told me there was a place to stay, and I should check it out.  The rest is history.
