Riding background

I previously raced motocross at a state and national level from the age of 12 until the age of 23. I never quite got to the level I wanted and lost the enjoyment for riding in the last 2-3 years. As a kid I could be found building jumps on any piece of land I could find and spent the day tearing it up on the BMX. I switched to MTB at 16 as a form of cross training for

Since then I have decided to make the

Cory Wallace and Jason English lapping together at Weaverville. Doing the old "nah havent been doing any training" and "look how relaxed i am, this is so easy for me brah" body language trick.

It’s 6.15am on the second day of WEMBO Weaverville this past October and I’m focused on the task at hand: Don’t make any mistakes on the long winding descent back to transition after taking over
