As soon as they could, Garret Mechem and Derek McCuiston left home in Santa Cruz, California and drove straight to the Canadian border. In the midst of competing in the Crankworx B.C. Summer Series, Garret and Derek found time to stack clips and throw some style in two of British Columbia’s most iconic freeride spots: Whistler Bike Park and Kamloops Bike Ranch.

“Being a month long, this trip really changed our perspective on a lot of things. Bouncing from place to place week after week really showed us that no matter the situation or conditions, there is not much else we would rather be doing. It also showed us that whether freeriding or racing, if your mission is to have a sick time, then really, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?”

 @maybenotaprofile: you really prefer the Jackson 5 to Travis Scott?

 @mariomtblt: the Jackson 5 could at least handle a safe concert, unlike the other one.

 @ldhbaker: Totally agree! Classic R&B, Way better than the crap rap at the start. I feel like Dr. Dre's The Chronic was the pinnacle of rap, and that the majority of rap after the early 2000's sucks!

 @BlindMan77: trippin dude, there is so much good music since then, never mind that so many top 40 hits in that time frame were produced by dr dre himself

 @mariomtblt: I was referring to rap music specifically. Most if it sucks after the early 2000's. It's subjective, I get it.
