RidersWest ran its Hotshot photo contest again for the month of October, and the lucky winner was Doug Dillon of Surrey, B.C. We were pleased to send Dillon a WASPcam action helmet camera. Thank you to Dillon for sharing his photo and to WASPcam for sponsoring our contest! If you’re interested in the company’s products, which are made in Canada by the way, you can go to the WASPcam website.

To see all the photos that were sent in, visit our Hotshot photo gallery. But first, here is what Dillon had to say about his passion for ATVing:

How long have you been an ATVer? Since 2000.

How did you get into the sport? My body wasn’t responding well to dirt biking anymore. Getting old! So I switched to ATVs and regretted not doing it years ago. (It’s) way more fun!

What’s your favourite kind of riding? Technical, the harder the better. I like to push the limits of my machine and myself.

Where do you usually ride? Tamihi and Chipmunk creeks in Chilliwack, B.C.

Are you part of an ATV club? Yes, the Right Nuts ATV Club—great group of folks who also love to ride technical trails.

Best riding in Western Canada? The Jungle at Chipmunk Creek, Chilliwack. The Right Nuts ATV Club built those trails, and they are the bomb!

What does the sport mean to you? Everything! I don’t smoke, drink or do drugs, so this is my nasty little habit, if you will.

What other hobbies do you enjoy? Spending time with my wife and two daughters, making ATV videos, and NFL football.
