You learn a lot about people when you travel in an RV with them. This was the case this past spring on the Rad Times Tour; it was the first time I had hung around with Wink for any extended period of time. He's the kind of dude that you want on a trip like that, equally excited to get to the final destination as he is exploring the unknown on the way down.
Wink's definitely quiet, and it might be cliché to say this, but he lets his riding do the talking. He's quietly established himself as one of the most stylish riders in mountain biking. Contests seem to go a long way towards determining your reputation on the bike these days, but Wink's managed to do this without the exposure that a big slope-style result brings.
