that was by far the best 'This is Home' so far. Some really awesome and stylish riding from Carson- can't wait to see how he goes at rampage later this year!

Carson is a class act. Whenever he likes my insta posts I feel like a boss...

Didn't know Bruno Mars can ride that well.

This is a great series. I like the athletes of our sport. They all seem like real accessible and affable people. I really like Carson's garage. And I so do wish we could get trails like that around here to ride. How I'm god's name can you learn to jump without jump lines to ride? How can you get really good at DH if you need to drive over an hour to get to the closest bike park? Some DH and jump line runs on our local trails would be epic. Guys like Carson keep pushing the sport so this can happen someday.

an hour and change is still pretty close for a bike park..

Bend is more well-known for smooth cross-country loops. Also higher-elevation trails with a wilder, less well-developed feel, but still cross-country. There's a few trails with good-sized built-up doubles and gaps (like Tiddlywinks) or drops (like Funner) and a lot of trails will take you through lava and rock sections.
If it weren't for builders like Jim Karn and James Reigner putting their stamp on the Slalom and Lair starting back almost 15 years ago, there'd probably be nothing at all today like what Carson is riding. Now with Carson and Cam McCaul around things are noticeably different just in the past couple of years. Even a year ago, how many would have guessed that this area would host a Fest series event, for example? It's pretty awesome.
So, what I'm taking a long time to say is, it can be done, even if there's currently no trails like that around to ride in your area. If you have the passion and the ability, make it happen.

: Ya i get the risk. I would love if 4X and slalom were bigger in the US maybe there would be more of a market for them. Racing always seems to bring bigger money than freestyle

That Rocky Mountain slope bike looks sick
(Jul 26, 2017 at 2:00)
Rocky should definitely make it possible to buy

It looks a lot like a Thunderbolt frame
(Jul 26, 2017 at 10:31)
: I think it's a thunderbolt frame.
(Jul 27, 2017 at 9:36)
It's got a custom swingarm and modified front triangle, so it's not *exactly* an off-the-shelf Thunderbolt:

I'm liking these "This Is Home" vids. Nice work Shimano. Amazing riding Carson

Was that a flip x up while doing a flip whip?
(Jul 26, 2017 at 4:32)
Carson,did you really say"i hope I can bring it to the next level"?Im pretty sure that's what you have been doing and doing a hell of a good job at it.Keep shredding buddy.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 7:01)
I think he's such an underrated rider. So sick, all aspects of production were so good.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 8:07)
I wonder is that SS bike is in the works to be made public? The last slopebike from Rocky Mountain looked pretty cool but didn't stick around for long. I know the market for slope bikes isn't that big, but they are fun as hell to ride.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 15:41)
honestly the thing with SS bikes is every time a manufacturer puts a frame out there, nobody buys them. It's a lot of money to tie up into an interesting an niche segment of biking. I had a Ticket S and a P slope for some time, both were fun and I found the crossover between pedal'y rides on the Ticket S and dirt jumpy stuff pretty dang fun, they're fantastic bikes but it really is a pretty big risk for manufacturers to try and bring them to bigger production numbers.
Didn't transition have that one slope bike announced within the last year or two? What happened to that?

Awesome video!! Impressive precision style on the big bike!!! Really pleasant to riding to watch.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 23:24)
At sea otter a couple years back, he was out of contention and knew it so he did a backflip in his race run. The crowd roared. In moments like that I think, these are my people.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 6:29)
So good! By far one of my favourite riders to watch. Killing it!

Cool video, I assume.

Click the 4k link after all of the pics.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 8:48)
I was wondering the same thing
(Jul 26, 2017 at 0:19)
Man, the things these people do make everyone I ever knew look like a cycling geriatric when they're not.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 14:55)
Feel the need to give credit when it's due; I'm one to really appreciate a good photo epic and can say this article was sick for sure. Really well done
(Jul 26, 2017 at 9:53)
Nice spots to ride.
(Jul 26, 2017 at 22:28)
Very cool, making us local/native Oregonians proud!
(Jul 26, 2017 at 4:19)
Video, pics and rider all class, roll on Rampage!!
