That's Bobby McMullen (I think). He rides for Santa Cruz, and really shreds. He's really an inspiration to keep on riding, no matter what life throws in your face

I know him pretty well, wouldn't call him a friend, but I've worked on his bikes and ridden with him. He's an amazing guy on a personal level. I don't know how the dude keeps a smile on his face and stays living like he isn't blind.

Oh and the blindness was a side effect of another health issue, this guy has been in the hospital for more weird issues than you will ever knoiw
