This past June while I was filming for Virtu Media's upcoming movie “Shifted,” I crashed on a double back flip and fell pretty hard on my shoulder. I figured it would get better with time, but it never did. After seeing a specialist, I was told I had torn my rotator cuff. I needed to get a specific MRI called an Arthogram which is on a six month waiting list on the government system. I opted to get a private Arthogram that cost $1,200. Afterwards the sports medicine doctor viewed the MRI and referred me to a surgeon. The surgeon was not convinced that the tear was complete, and he recommended waiting three months to see if it improved. I have an appointment in the new year to ascertain whether or not I will require surgery. Luckily, my injury has not totally stopped my ability to bike. Over the past four months I have been recovering little by little. Each ride seems to get a bit longer, and I've been shortening the length between days of riding, up to where I can almost ride every day. Shortly before my injury, I got sponsored by Deity. Since then I have formed a great relationship with them. Eric and Sadie have been awesome, they have been really supportive after my injury and I'm really stoked to have them behind me. I am proud to be a part of such a sick crew of riders and I couldn't be any happier with the Cryptkeeper frame. Injuries are just part of the sport, and they can happen to anyone. This injury has really focused me and I think I am a smarter and stronger rider because of it. I just can’t wait to be back!

Typically during this time of the year in Kelowna, I’m up at the ski hill pretending to ride Rampage lines and roost corners as if I was on my bike. Injecting myself with a sort of self-medicating mental distraction, by straight lining groomers trying to top 125km/hr and sending massive spread eagles over jumps under the chair. But luckily this year we’ve been able to ride all the way into December. Even though the trails here aren’t completely snowed in yet, the evening hours have been dwindling down to a minimum... which sparked an idea for a quick edit. Matt and I wanted to shoot an edit in a day, starting in the dark and ending in the dark. Which gave us roughly 8 hours of light. These are the darker days of the Canadian off season.
