In the second episode of Mountain Bike In My Head, I interviewed JT Linville, an amateur rider living and training in Brevard, NC. He is 18 years old and is one of the coaches of Team FEAR (Future Elite American Riders). He has been riding for 4 years and competing for 2 years. JT enjoys mountain biking and is active in the local competitions. Here he shares how mountain biking provides a distraction from everyday life. JT is a well rounded rider that may seem laid back in person, but attacks the trails with a cool confidence. He is an up and coming talent I look forward to filming again.
In the next episode we go back to Brazil to film with Thiago Velardi, a Pro DH rider. Just like Luciano "KDra" said "Brazil lacks of infrastructure for the sport...", that said Thiago built his own trail starting off of his backyard. I could not believe how steep the trail was, very close to World Cup level!
