 Chris is awesome but he must be a pain to go for a group ride with. Everybody is ready and then all of a sudden it's like "where's Chris?" "Oh, he is only scaling a bloody cliff again"

 Move over Santa Cruz. That was the coolest big brand shreddit since Loris (Bullit) and Ratboy’s swan songs (Bronson).
