Carl Decker on Downieville

VIDEO: Last year Carl Decker earned the right to be dubbed the all-mountain world champion. How about 2011?

WATCH DECKER RALLYING HIS SUBARU

Carl Decker is a man of many hats, or better yet, many helmets.

The Giant Factory Off-Road Team member has won national championship jerseys, a tattoo at singlespeed worlds and, last year, earned the right to be dubbed the all-mountain world champion at the Downieville Classic in California.

With all that going on, Decker then switches hats to something a little more substantial than a bike helmet. He puts on a crash helmet and gets into a rally car, more often than not with his Giant teammate Adam Craig as navigator.

We caught up with Decker to talk about a couple of his favorite things: Racing Downieville and racing his tricked out Subaru.
