...riding, and you were riding, would you ride up to his side and say hi? Maybe stick on his wheel for a bit or start sprinting and then raise your hands when you passed a marker, like a tree or a mail box. Given you could stay close. He seems like the type that might sock you in the mouth or say something cocky or rude.
He lives in Aspen now because "nobody bugs" him there. But if I see him, or Levi, or another pro rider I don't know if I could help myself.
