Video: Wade Simmons & Keegan Wright Get PINNED on the Shore

Oct 12, 2018
by Race Face  


Legendary Race Face rider Wade Simmons loves being a North Shore tour guide – this time picking up Devinci Factory ripper Keegan Wright for a true Shore introduction. Both riders drop in to the gnarl on RF Atlas wheels, the Shore providing the perfect backdrop to show off the burliness of the DH rated Atlas hoops. The Godfather of Freeride happily shows Keegan the ropes... until he doesn't - ATLAS: Shore Tough, just like Wade.



Dogs will hunt! Keegan Wright on the tail of Wade Simmons.



Lofty Goals. Timeless style.


Presented: by Race Face
Featuring: Atlas Wheels and the new Atlas 820 Bar!

 Seeing Wade on a Marzocchi again makes me warm and fuzzy inside.

 @cunning-linguist: ep1.pinkbike.org/p5pb13835369/p5pb13835369.jpg I remember it so well. I couldn't afford his version working in a small bike shop in Alaska so I had to get the Blue/Grey/black version with the Super T pro. First DH/Freeride rig for me

 @krashDH85: had a flame paintjob rm9 with a '99 monster t for a while.... still probably the sickest looking bike ive ever owned, rear end slop and oil spewing fox shock be damned, she was a beauty!
  • + 3
 for some reason seeing wade on a bike with triple clamp forks gets me hyped
  • + 2
 @lyleo: yup that was the dream bike. My buddy who worked at the same shop as me got the RM9 with that paint job and the Monsters. So sick. Unfortunately it was all huck to flat where I lived (no trails, urban assault) so he broke that damn dog bone link every week...

 I am pretty much guaranteed to watch anything that says Wade Simmons on it. I met this guy at Interbike around 06 and my buddy yelled the line from Ride to Hills, "Hey, you're Wade Simmons, you suck! My older brother says you're totally washed!" He shook his head and replied in kind with "Listen you little shit!" Then he brought is into the Rocky Mountain booth and we had a beer with him and the other Rocky guys at the time. I will forrver have a positive opinion of him, just the nicest guy ever. Also, he gave me a beer.

 Wade is the nicest pro I've ever met in real life. Little tidbit about that ride to the hills scene, the kid who tells Wade he sucks is Thomas Vanderham's little brother.
  • + 7
 I ridden with him, when he used to do the shore tour thang with gully and co. A class act and a great rider. It was a day I will never forget!
  • + 2
 @damo: I have heard that before! Thomas Vanderham was there too and he looked like he was going to kill us! Super funny moment. They were all super nice. That is still by far my favorite bike movie and Simmons video part!
  • + 1
 @damo: sick dude! didnt know that! love that vid.
  • + 1
 @kieran: I did the Shore Play thing with Wade once too, it was definitely one of the best days riding I've ever had. Super nice and chill dude, really helped a lot of us up our riding game that day no doubt.

 Love the visor book drop, awesome riding guys & thank you Connor.

Meats Sweats was named after my dog Oscar who was getting fed too much raw chicken.. Good times with Shorty & Oscar in the woods, stoked people still enjoy it so much ????

 Thank you for the build! Super fun trail to go fast on.

 Crazy how they just bumped into each other
  • + 8
 Usually I think of DH bikes as big smashing machines that are more about speed than fun.... but this video really shows that with the right terrain (and rider) a DH Bike is super nimble!

That trail looks absolutely amazing... and definitely DH bike worthy.
  • + 2
 Oh believe me, it's scary without a full on DH rig. Too steep and fast
  • + 11
 Rocky, Zocch and Simmons...go together like a bong and a blitz.

 or a smoke and a pancake..

 "Seems kinda out of date"

Laughed out loud.

 Awesome!!! How can someone be so constantly awesome? Wade rules. The terrible punk song even made me feel like it was the 90s again. This video totally made my weekend!! Thanks Raceface and Pinkbike!

 The best part was the "staged whipout" at the end by Wade. Classic wade.

 True story: My wife was pregnant, but it is tradition to do an annual trip to Whistler. She is a pro-level DH racer, so she was happy to come even if all she could do was relax in the condo and drive the shuttle. We ended up getting linked up with Wade! After a couple days around him, and being around his chill attitude, stoke level, community love, skills, history, humbleness, and flat-out sincerity.... we had such a positive name recognition for "Wade".... Well, my first born; Wade McCoy, is turning 4 on 11/21. Surprise! Wade, you have children named after you.

 very cool story!
  • + 5
 OH Yeah! This just made my day Smile Love the riding and the tunes, bring back the New World Disorder Big D!!
Has there ever been a clip of Stevie Smith riding with Wade on the Shore somewhere back in time?
  • + 3
 So let me get this story board straight. Keegan doesn't have a car and they both have DH bikes. Walking back to truck?

I think they need to add an epilog where they ride into a Mario Kart style cannon that shoots them to the top of the hill.

 More like the scene where the pizza delivery man and pool boy meet Nina Hartley.
  • + 2
 Wade can go up as well on a DH bike man, i've seen it with my own eyes...

 @rkstar: Nina Hartley? LOL! You're obviously old (like me). LOL!

 Awesome old school vibes meets new school steeze.

 @BRRN ... can't pick out the actual tune by the jam as they are going off, but mid to late 1970s Grateful Dead..that sounds like classic Jerry ripping in his prime.

 @tiredsoul: not quite sure if that is The Other one jam or not...more digging through my old bootlegs...

 ^Fuel for the fire. I personally come to pinkbike in hopes of another article about sweetlines jr racing or some fast non-male riders, and usually don't find much. Maybe we should form a website called: The-male-gender-will-fall, the-non-binary-will-rise bike. I'd take that over pinkbike any day. Pinkbike has some work to do, and so do I.

 @laxguy: yeah its fun to shit all over you bros,brah all while being a better rider to boot so S my D while I SMH, betch.

 Yep, lets politicize a video supplied for free on a free website that is an effort by Raceface to promote one of their products. I get your point, IMO this is not the platform for this though. I also don't really care how fast you are, it's not about that for most of us.
  • + 0
 @Blackers: I understand where you're coming from, I think we all want to jam on bikes in peace. I just want clarify though, no one has said anything about politics yet, and @POWsLAYER's banter about pinkbike being male dominated doesn't really stop anyone from jamming bikes in peace. Also, if fueling male dominance is not political, I don't see how talking against the patriarchy is political.

 @Blackers: says the bro from the most misogynist continent on the whole f*cking planet.

 @POWsLAYER: says the aggrieved feminist from Portland... didn't see that coming.

 @cdel: you mean DID see that coming, right? Wink
