Gideon Bender - Riding From the Heart

This season was supposed to be a team effort with my riding friend, Declan Ervin. We were planning training and race schedules to reach our dream of racing World Cups, but our whole community was devastated when Declan tragically died in a snowshoeing accident February 25. I struggled to find the will to continue after Declan was gone but I know he is with me every time I race. - Gideon Bender

 That is so sad to hear man! I lost a friend of mine I raced motocross with in 2001 and it was really hard to keep riding for a while. Ultimately my friends and I decided it was what he’d want us to do and we continued to do it, but there wasn’t a day that went by that didn’t remind us of him. Awesome video though man, keep doin what you do and chase that dream!

 Grief is a painful. It’s so important to not get lost through the process of it all. Thanks for being that great example that others might need to see right now in their own lives.
