The Brett Rheeder Story: Fighting Back and Looking Forward – Video

Feb 7, 2018
by Official Crankworx  

We started at the beginning, covered his rise to the top, the move west, and his triumph on the sport’s biggest stage. What comes next? When you’ve won nearly everything there is to win, it’s actually pretty simple: you fight to win them again.

We’re stoked to share the final instalment of The Brett Rheeder Story, covering the battles that made 2017 one of the most epic in the history of Slopestyle, and Rheeder's continuing journey to the top.

Catch up with Part 1 HERE and Part 2 HERE.

 Nyquist is this weird combination of super-experienced competitor and a dude riding a mountain bike for the first time... It's pretty funny to watch someone consistently pull 720's then have adjusting the compression knob on a fork blow their mind. no judgement - that's the sort of thing that likely keeps him young and competitive.

 I’m an older guy. Got into Mtb later in life. I’m in awe of the slopestyle discipline. I know there’s no way I’ll ever be able to learn this discipline. DH yes I do that. Technical trail riding? Sure. Always working on our skills. But slopestyle??? Wouldn’t even know where to begin. Any of these athletes are simply on a preternatural level as far as I’m concerned. Rheeder is definitely one of the best. I like these more in-depth stories as well. Keep em coming.

 First a new Semenuk video. Shortly after a Rheeder post.
Coincidence? I think not.
