by Cannondale Bikes  

A behind-the-scenes look at Mitch Ropelato’s wild world returns for a second year. Kicking things off with a quick pre-season brainstorm at Cannondale HQ, Mitch travels over to Anaheim for the opening Supercross round and meets Justin Barcia to give him some helmet-style pointers. Keep those peaks up!

I think like Dean Wilson kind of struggle and Barcia is alright but then Roczen and Tomac absolutely shred!!

 Be cool to see a couple of the SX guys get more into MTB maybe when they retire see how quick they pick it up, they simply just don't have time to do more than XC and road training during their careers. Most people into cycling probably arent aware how much of a machine these guys are on road bikes, usually 3-4 big rides a week depending on if in season or off season.

 This was one of the best videos I have seen in a while. Great riding and even better atmosphere. Lots of good laughs and gave me that boopin-around-with-ma-friends feel all over again. Please make many more of these.
