Jim Montgomery - Fifty

Fifty. Can't believe I've been on this earth for 50 years but pumped a big chunk of those have been on two wheels. Forgive my music choice....I'm old...... #Whistler #DeerValley #SantaCruzBicycles

 Proof that people need to stop thinking of 50 as that old.

 Yeah I'm 54 and enjoying Downhill ! I feel great doing it after losing 2 1/2 stone and getting my boding well toned up !

 Nice work Jim!!! Proof that you don't get old if you don't quit! I'm 47 & still riding strong! Technology rules these days so I hope to keep going as long as possible! Ride To Live, Live To Ride!!! Cheers

 Hitting 49 this year and just learning to leave terra firma in prep for a trip to Whistler this year! Can't believe how many of us old fogeys are here on Pinkbike - it's inspiring. Let's keep it going gents!!

 Sooo, proud of my young son-in-law. He is one amazing biking dude, father, and wonderful friend. My daughter is a very fortunate young lady to have found this biking hero, photographer, and video producer. Very proud of you young man.

 Not bad for 50. In fact, you go bigger than me and I'm not even 30 yet haha! Sweet video man, and nice job editing.

 @Twoplanker110: hey, awesome video. Don't take this the wrong way, but it's refreshing to see a video of guys only 2 or 3 times better than me instead of the usual stuff I could only dream about. I'm 41 now, maybe by 50 I'll be at your level.

 Very sick video and I liked the music choice! It's great to see our sport is still keeping people young. There's hope for me at 34 to have a rad life ahead. Keep riding!

 Great dude! I’m 48 and ride downhill with my 9 and 11 year old kids since years. We have such a good time in parks that hopefully never ends. Ok, not yet Wink

 I feel bad for taking so long to watch this video you included, but I just did tonight. Your manuals are awesome! I tried to learn those damn things and nearly crippled myself in the process last year :-). After watching your vid, I just may try 'er again. Nice work and keep it up!

 @Twoplanker110: It took me three years in the making and still trying to perfect the manual but the pay off is so awesome. most of riding buddies are lot younger than me and so far Im the only one that was able to do it..
Never give up, keep trying and practicing as long as you can and think safety at the same time.
Good luck Buddy and Big Thanks for liking my video.

 Hope to make it to Whistler by 50. I have 3 years to do it. And if I ride half as badass I’d be so stoked! Roding and smiling, smiling and riding. Thanks for the reminder, there are no old guys in helmets on two wheels!

 Most excellent edit, Johnny Utah. You make 50 look good. Street Youths got nothin on you, bro...

 Super inspiring Jim! I'm turning the big 5-0 this year myself; fun to do the math and figure out exactly how many years we've had wheels underneath us. Keep shredding - age is but a number!

P.S. - nice Dylan track.Smile

 Absolutely ripping in cargo shorts....I love it
  • + 2
 Thanks for the kind words! Too funny on the shorts......they are actually 11 year old Spectrum Techwear MTB shorts that I didn't buy enough of and will wear until they rot off my body. Spectrum Techwear was a great gear company started by a super dude named Brad Walton. Thanks again and ride hard!

 there is something with the people of park city, somehow they never get old!!
  • + 1
 I wish I could say I didn't feel old, but I'm at least tryin' to fight it. I actually live in Boise, Idaho but you are correct in identifying a few of those ride places as being in Park City.....super rad place for sure! Thanks much!
