There must be something in the air of the Pacific Northwest, because every year the trails fill with ever-younger riders going bigger and faster. When Matilda "Tilly" Melton (15) and Emmy Lan (17) joined the 7mesh roster for 2022, we knew we had to get them together to ride. There was some battling over whose hometown we should visit... so we went to both.

After an incredible debut year on the EWS circuit Emmy took the U21 overall title in Loudenville last weekend despite still recovering from a separated shoulder. Tilly finished her season off by taking the top step at the Canadian Open DH and Fox US Open. These are two riders you're sure to hear a lot from in the future.

 Sick footy, but should've used The Offsprings "The Kids Aren't Alright" soundtrack.

 Played this fully expecting that great Offspring intro. When it wasn't there, I reminded myself this video was created by kids half my age. Then the familiar sting of realizing my youth is long gone set in

 Can you imagine how thrilling it must have been to be the first person to title their video "the kids are alright"?
