Blake Samson is just one of those riders who oozes style, but 2014 was a tough year for him after breaking his leg. Being off the bike for over 6 months, he was able to give some serious thought to future projects.

Stay tuned for a lot more from Blake in 2015.

 One of the best edits! The voice-over story was a great addition-- I could feel his frustrations when off the bike, and the storyline had me cheering for him to get back to it. Nice work!
