Matt Macduff - Open Loop

Jul 27, 2012
by MacDuff Matt  
bigquotesIt's always been a dream of mine to build and ride an open loop, but I'd never thought it would actually happen. I have no space at my place and a general lack of carpentry skills. Then I was approached by Drew Bezanson and his good friend Jason Leil, to help them start up some jumps in Nova Scotia. Needless to say I grabbed the opportunity and got straight to work. Everyday as I walked into the trails I just couldn't help but notice these 4 perfectly placed trees, it was like the mountain bike gods themselves had left them for me. Eventually I just couldn't take it anymore and I had to step up to the challenge. With a little help from some good friends we made it happen. - Matt Macduff
