We’re happy to present another episode of The Tim O’Connor Show, and for this episode Tim locked down Tyshawn Jones while he was out in Colorado for The Zumiez 100K. Tyshawn was able to take some time off from fucking with a passed out Jake Donnely and “beating Nak’s ass at pool” to talk to Tim about his recent successes on and off the board.
