I am very excited for this season. Just signing with Goodyear Bike Tires, to help develop and drive the iconic automotive brand in the mountain bike industry.
It's only going to get better!
Winter hit hard here in Vancouver. Some people may get discouraged by the stormy weather and others take advantage of the snowy hills. I chose the ladder this year and enjoyed the cross training in insane conditions that we received.
I think it's healthy to take a little bit of time off the bike and do something else. Strengthens unnatural muscle groups you wouldn't always be using. Forces you to see the terrain differently and learn new reactions.
However, I am ready for warmer weather and sunny conditions at Crankworx, NZ. Trails have been snowy here and difficult to find the motivation in the freezing temperatures.
This was a rad day with good friend, Margus Riga, captured on my GoPro HERO6
These trails are stunning, close to death but stunning. You may not be able to enjoy the scenery while you ride but you will be thoroughly engaged by the trail.
If you haven't been night riding before, the idea can be terrifying. However, the experience is excellent and it will broaden your riding hours throughout the short days of the winter.
Just returned from an eventful media camp, hosted by Rocky Mountain Bicycles. The terrain was extremely fun and the perfect zone to have the media test the new "Pipeline" and "Instinct."
I took it upon myself to capture some of the most fun sections of trail in the "North Fruita" cycling area, with my GoPro HERO 6. Very excited to be using the new GoPro. The new settings and overall quality make any footage "post ready" and easy for consumer use.
I travel all over the world but the best riding to me will always be at home, in North Vancouver.
A solid example right here.
I haven't been sharing as much as I should be and will make a better effort of keeping up to date.
Had a blast coaching at Highland Bike Park. This place is a breeding ground for talent. Flawless terrain and large features right at your fingertips.
Make sure to check it out when you plan your next mountain bike adventure!
We ended up riding a nasty piece of singletrack on the edge of a very exposed cliff. Being in Peru, we should have been more cautious of such a hazard. When you get sucked into that zone of focus, there's no looking back, only forward.
The battles on this track were second to none. Corners where you can break loose and potentially end up in the bushes were a real thing. The goal wasn't to win, it was only to not get completely wrecked.
Very Excited for my first trip to New Zealand this Suday, to judge Slope Style and check out the local riding!
