Video: Andrew Neethling & Sam Reynolds Ride Coronet Peak & Dream Track in 'Mission to Ride' Ep.1

bigquotesBefore the Corona virus confined us all to our homes or, at least the local trails, Andrew Neethling had the chance to catch up with Sam Reynolds in New Zealand.

"Mission to Ride" is hosted by Andrew Neethling, and sees him sit down with other Kenda riders to chat about their dreams, their struggles and their goals. In episode 1, he meets Sam to find out what drives him to build insane jumps (Darkfest, anyone?) and then ride them, too. At the end of each episode, there's a little challenge waiting for Andrew. You might have guessed it: With Sam, it involves some air time.

 Nice to see needles still running with the young guys. Maybe that’s why I can’t get my bike serviced at the hanger! NZ tracks are always awesome, coronet and cardrona so damn good. Board all winter, ride all summer. Sick.

 Met Needles about a month ago and am happy to report that the whole "Nice guy" vibe is not an act at all. He had loads of time to talk to me, answer (and ask) questions about riding, etc. Great guy and I wish him luck with his career.

 Really impressive how Dream track has stood the test of time! 16 years old and it's still a track that impresses even the top end riders.

 It’s so unbelievably impressive. Never been to NZ but from I see from pics and vids, crabapple bits is as overrated as it gets. Dream Track seems to be the world’s ultimate big line
