He was born to race, everything from dirt bikes to custom Baja buggies. Today he manages more than a 100 Freestyle MX (FMX) shows domestically and internationally. Some days he plays entrepreneur, some days it's weatherman, but on the day he plays mechanic, Marc is a solid fan of Chicago Pneumatic tools.

"On tour, we ride hard, break things, and have no time to mess with tools that can't keep up. I like CP tools 'cause they take the worst beating we can give them and still work perfectly."
