After a long week of school and rain, I was craving to get out and ride! It was an overcast morning, so I got ready, opened the garage, grabbed my bike, and BAM! It started pouring! I almost just went back inside, but really wanted to ride, so I set off into the storm! Riding down the street towards the trail, I thought to myself “Man, this is the worst idea ever, I’m already soaked.” It improved in the woods though, and once I got going it got better and better. There were some corners that I stopped and sessioned because they were so fun drifting around, hoping the tires wouldn’t slide out. It was also my first ride on my new Straitline pedals! I am impressed to say the least with them; that ride was in some of the worst possible conditions for pedals, yet my feet didn’t slip once! All in all it was a great time bombing some fun trails in the rain!
At another point in the week, I met up with Justin Brantley to do a photoshoot in some dryer conditions. We spent some time on this particular corner, where he was seeing how close he could get with his new wide angle lens! I set up the camera just to see, and switched the angles around a few times after that. Of course, Justin nailed some bangers!
