Living north of Lake Ontario, Mike Varga's riding season might be shorter than his competition season, but his backyard wooden ramp park is a skills-honing paradise. And Varga has perfected his approach to competitions as well. "For me, the biggest challenge in a contest situation is keeping my focus. Before I drop in, I really have to actively slow my heart rate down, quiet my mind, and get myself under control, because I'm always thinking of stuff I want to do and I can spazz out a little but because of it. When I was younger I'd sometimes get so nervous I couldn't even drop in, but now I'd say it's a strength of mine that I've been able to control myself in those moments."
