Team / John Barnet
We had to write this bio without telling John because every time we get him on the phone it ends up costing fifty bucks in long distance charges. While you may have seen him just motoring along on his skate, his mouth can motor on triple that. John is actually probably the most talented on the Kebbek team, he’s been annihilating hills in Europe and North America and his bag of tricks is entertaining to watch. His stories are good and his massages are even better, every pro team should have at least one pro osteopath!
