bigquotesDuring the summer of 2018 I tore my ACL while putting a foot down on a trick I've done countless times. After 9 months of heavy rehab post surgery I felt I was finally ready to film a new video that I could be proud of. With that being said I was very worried about pushing myself too far during filming and re-injuring my knee. It was definitely a mental battle going back to the same jump that took me out just a year earlier, but so worth it for that feeling of ultimate redemption.

During recovery I spent a bunch of time on my trail bike so I thought it was only fitting to film the entire edit on that bike. Overall I'm super stoked on how the video turned out and I couldn't be more hyped to be back in the business of shredding bikes.

 Looks like something people used to do a long time ago, not racing or going a long way or caring about any of that. Just getting out there, riding jumps, new lines & finding your limits for the heck of it. The bikes were no lightweights but you could still get them up the hill. Now just to think of the name of it ...

 Love the oil slick treatment on the stem and seatpost collar! Bet it feels great coming back from injury and just crushing it on the bike.

 Cheers dude!! It's the bike I pedal up to ride down so I've always called it my trail bike haha. I suppose enduro bike would be the proper term.
