Vital's Bravest - Monthly Contest Presented by Five Ten 8
It's hard to think of a more worthy winner for the inaugural Vital's Bravest award. Jerad Fisher - or JRAD as he's known - has seen more bad luck than most people, yet he keeps bouncing back stronger and wilder than before. A respected member of the local riding community, when he's not shredding the jumps he's building them - this sounds like it could be almost anybody, right? Well Jerad has done all this and more even after loosing part of his left leg to multiple crashes and complicated recovery. Check out the trailer for the upcoming feature documentary on Jerad's story for an idea of just how hard he gets after it - even his very expensive artificial limb can't keep up with the man!
To reward Jerad and Scott Klumb (of SMK Media who's behind the film) for their bravery, Five Ten are offering both of them a pair of their latest masterpiece - the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoes.
Congrats Jerad - you are Vital's Bravest for April 2013!
Time to find out just how brave you are. Five Ten, the Brand of the Brave, and Vital have teamed up to bring you a monthly search for the most daring among us. Whether you finally stuck that big drop, completed your longest trail ride ever, or overcame adversity or injury, we want you to be rewarded for your courage.
The contest runs monthly, and the rules are simple - we'll pick one Vital member-submitted mountain biking photo or video that best exemplifies bravery each month and reward the winning member with rad prizes from Five Ten. Think you have what it takes? Then get out there and be brave!
At the end of each month, we'll announce the winner based on who inspired us the most.
