Entrance -- Fifteen-year-old downhill racer, Leighton Pillipow discovers new ways to ride his bike, exploring some big lines, pushing limits and facing some freeride demons in his first freeride edit.


bigquotes "I started riding mountain bikes at the age of 5 and have always loved the adrenaline and the intense focus that riding on the edge brings - the faster the better! My journey has introduced me to downhill mountain bike racing, and new opportunities to freeride with some of the most talented riders in Northern British Columbia. The evolution of my riding is only made possible with the good friends across Northern BC that share similar passions, and the support of our great Northern communities" Thanks to Glenn, Jacob, and Arthur I got to experience a most incredible weekend, incredible riding, wicked descents and luckily, walk away with only a bit of pride left on the on the hill!" -- Leighton Pillipow

 This is Sick! Not in a good way... Yes, kid is talented and experienced. No doubt about it. Does he have to prove anything? No. Not enough bike parks in BC? Save you brain, kid! It doesn’t heal as your bones do.
