Must Watch: Reece Wallace Goes HUGE in Utah for 'Flight Path'

Jul 4, 2019
by Giant Bicycles  


Reece Wallace travelled south this winter to build and film a free ride video at the crossroads of free ride mountain biking in Virgin, Utah with hopes of getting into Rampage.

After going huge on the North Shore last summer and not receiving an invite, Reece felt he had something to prove. With his crew, Reece spent almost a month in the Utah desert building in preparation for this video then an additional two weeks filming. The result, 'Flight Path'.

 That 360 no hander was nasty, If Reece isn’t at rampage this year Redbull is corrupt.

 Agreed! Boss riding.

 Good showing from Reece. In the world of 360's, I'm partial to the one at the end.

Pretty short list of humans who send that size drop while spinning sideways.

Here's to hoping more disciples emerge from the @HouseOfZink

 I mean the fact that it's a 30 rider invite makes it a little exclusive. I get not opening it up to some random guy that says he can clear 80' gaps but as long as you qualify for a FMB (and a you're a little crazy) why not.

 @reecewallace: and how come no response to what you did? Not a sorry? You could've seriously hurt someone. Stay outta town with that shit.

 @Dhfreeride345: Why don't you message Reece instead of trying to start a cat fight in public? I don't know you (or Reece), personally, but it just seems like the wrong forum....ya know...more of a one-on-one conversation.
  • + 7
 Heck yeah! I made a comment a few weeks ago about how excited I was for Reece Wallace to be at proving grounds to do his thing. Dhfreerider responded to me how he wasn’t talented enough. Reece has some crazy style, sure can’t wait to watch him ride.

 Hot damn, he's been putting in work. Most banger Utah part to come out in a minute. No weeks/months of hype for a edit that's half intro/ landscape bullshit, like most other edits and parts we see these days.

 Freeriders are not part of the Giant DH team, so Reece gets his own sponsors outside of the Giant frames they supply.
