It was 3 degrees out, pouring rain and dark-What did you do last night? It was 3 degrees out, pouring rain and dark-What did you do last night?
So I'm sitting here trying to warm up, but I can't help but be so stoked that I was riding a few hours ago in what most would consider 100% crappy riding conditions. Yes they were less then ideal, but we were still out riding and not sitting on the couch talking about the idea of a dry day to ride. So tonight is January 31st and the Vancouver/Fraser Valley areas can officially say that they have experienced accumulative precipitation (also known as a lot of rain) for 29 of 31 days this month. Well me and our local tech, Mike decided to hell with this we need to hit the trails.

So, what do playing hockey, chopping trees and riding a bike have in common? They are all in the quiver of talents of one Wayne Goss. As lifelong resident of Smithers British Columbia, it’s not surprising that Goss would posses the qualities of his country brethren. However, it’s what he does on a bike that has captivated the lenses of the freeride world and the attention of Cannondale.
