Kurt Shimada - Ride Giant, Ride Whistler - Ride Life Gravity edition

My name is Kurt Shimada and this is why I ride and push myself. Filmed by my friend Tyler Hatton.   From Tyler: Kurt linked me to the contest even though I hadn't filmed anything in 5 years. Seeing his passion for the sport inspired me to rediscover my passion. It's my first time shooting MTB and I have a lot of respect for you all. Thanks to Kurt, Giant & Pinkbike.

 I gonna take the last words of this video to describe this video **that was awesome**
  • + 7
 Nice dude! Looks fun. How do you guys get to have that stuff right next to a residential neighborhood?
  • + 7
 Housing Development gone wrong due to erosion, there was an old fire road up it but some of that eroded too, so really the city has no use for it and they don't care if bikers use the land because bikers clean up the trash and keep druggies and high school kids from burning the mother fucker down.

 That's awesome! If only Portland felt the same way. We've offered to build some trails in dirty parks with junkies hanging out there, but Portland always has some stupid excuse like the zoning isn't right or they need to do ecological studies or some other bullshit.
  • + 1
 I've only spent a little time in Portland and there were in fact junkies bathing in a fountain in a park. From an outsiders point of view it doesn't make Portland a desirable place to be and the city council should really do something to apprehend such problems like I dunno maybe listen to the riders and build you a bike park

 Sweet Vid!!! Can really relate to this, I to gave up sports bikes cos I thought I'd rather hit a tree at double figures rather than triple figures!! Just like you I've never had so many injuries, but still love every minute!! Smile Good luck!! Hope you win!!
  • + 5

 Why is somebody voting this shit down?
  • + 3
 Great video Kurt! You deserve my vote. Always someone to look up to and learn from. I completely understand the injury bit. Broke my left toes on Sunday, gonna miss opening weekend. So pissed! GoodLuck! See you at the *
  • + 2
 thanks man.. ahh that sucks... i almost broke my big toe filming at carlmont for this edit.. had a crazy bail and i went off my bike running and sprained it so bad. it's still messed up but not bad enough to stop me from riding. it's just a toe Smile it would be different if it was broken though.. heal up man! try to use heatpack as soon as you can to get blood flowing to it so it can heal faster.. fingers, toes, joints, etc take a long time to heal because they dont get a lot of blood circulating through.

 Love it. Kurt you sound like a nurse, haha.
  • + 1
 Nice edit! I agree with it all being worth it, even the hospital visits. I spent all season last year out due to punctured lung, broken ribs and jaw. Opening day this year I went all out and made the edit for this contest and got in the finals. It's all worth it, every second of it!

 which is better, tld gp or se gloves?
  • + 1
 the GP will protect better and has better grip on the palm. the SE has a ligther, tighter, thinner feel to the glove.
