Until Sunset - Vaea Verbeeck

Queen of Crankworx and 3 times DH national champ Vaea Verbeeck talks about how she reconsidered her career after a broken femur. For us she defines the word of progression in the sport and we got to film with here for a Shimano "Make Your Mark" video. She gets into how working on power moves is what opened up her riding possibilities and gives some great tips on how to approach features that you feel might be beyond your current level.

Listen to the episode below

Interview from the Shimano Make You Mark episode with Vaea Verbeeck. Filmed at The Coast Gravity Park at the Sunshine Coast in BC, Canada.
