Currently, Joey is working for IMBA's Trail Solutions, a program he helped develop in 2002. Since the program's inception, he has designed well over 300 miles of mountain bike trails, creating everything from family friendly singletrack to world-class downhill and freeride trails to build the sport all over the world.

Joey has made two previous trips to Australia to assess the country's mountain bike resources and potential, working with dozens of groups to build momentum for more and better mountain biking opportunities. This is his third trip to Australia and he will travel coast to coast during a 7-week road trip.
