"Piper Allman | Dream Chaser" video by Noah Allman

Piper would like to thank Sooke Mountain Cycle for the support throughout the season. She also thanks everyone else who has supported her while doing something that most people don't get the opportunity to do. The opportunity to chase her dream.

Piper Allman

Piper is only 12 years old and is progressing very fast as a rider she is going to keep chasing her dream and encourages you to chase yours.

 It's never too late. Riding skills do progress with saddle time, but your desire and focus can make up for it.

 Ya I hear you, I gave up when 11 year olds started flip wipping box jumps… www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tktoth7xMw4

 Ha, yes it's nice to know that after 20 years of serious riding I have attained roughly the same skill level as a 12 year old girl.

 My 9 year old daughter wants to make a video now. Excellent motivation. Thanks for the post.

 Time to get out there and make a video before she decides she wants to be like all the ridiculously over sexualiszed icons that young girls are allowed to "aspire" to these days.
Happy filming Smile

 Wow, she can do a clinic to teach adults how to ride.

 I hope some company steps up and gives her true support; coaching, getting her to the races, and dialing in her bike. Let's get her to her dream, and let's get a Canadian gal crowned a world cup champion in a few years.

Good luck Piper! Keep smiling, shredding and focusing on that dream.

 Only if that's what she wants. In my opinion riding bikes should always be about fun, and never about achievements. Never take the fun out of what you enjoy doing.

Rather have no one know you in the scene and to have the best times ever on your bike, than being famous for your riding but not enjoying it (so much) anymore.
  • 4 0
 I agree too! Pursue your dream as long as your enjoying it. It's obvious that at this point she enjoys it and it's something she wants to work towards. I don't believe in ramming stuff down children's throat to follow some dream that the parents want their child to have.

 Fantastic! Glory awaits!

 She looks solid and relaxed on the bike and she is already squashing stuff....going to be a force racing if she keeps it up.

 Thanks Pinkbike - so great to see vid's like this. Its so important to inspire all types and all ages of riders! Amazing work Piper - way to go for chasing your dream. Remember to just alway 'have fun' out there! I am guessing you are chasing the more DH scene but if you ever want to give any of the BC Enduro's races a try then contact me megan@ridingbc.com as would love to support you! Keep riding hard and having fun, you have some amazing years of adventures and exploring ahead of you!

 Nice riding and great suicide no hand. but sadly the bike is to big for her. But she's young and good opportunities to make her dream become real. I wish I could do so.
  • 11 0
 Yeah, she got the bike when she was growing really fast and everyone in my family is tall but then she stopped growing
  • 5 0
 Eh, she's still only 12, give it a season or two. She seems to be getting on quite well with it, regardless
  • 4 1
 yeah I was just saying. She'll grow anyway.

 When I was 12 years old, my parents didn't have money to buy me a bike!

 When I was 12 years old, my dad prefer to get drunk with his friends rather than buy me a bike.

 Awesome! I must have watched Piper's Little Sister vid 100x with my three year old daughter, she'll be stoked to see this new one and Piper taking it to another level! Keep shredding and having fun Piper, you're lucky to have found a thrilling sport you can enjoy your whole life, regardless of how far you choose to pursue the competitive aspect.

 Yeah great song......and great vid but you gotta wonder about the song and the lyric content when watching a shredding 12 yo girl. Best not to hear rest of the song! Given the dreams and potential trip she is going to take it would have been kinda cooler to have something like "the trip" by strange corners. Anyways just saying.....
  • 2 0
 To be perfectly honest 90% of the time when I choose a song for an edit I dont pay attention to the lyrics, I'm to focused on the beat
