Vital's Bravest - Monthly Contest Presented by Five Ten
Sometimes, it's about the moment - a single act that some call foolish, others brave. When you're on the clock, a single such moment can take seconds off your race time - if you can stick it. Vital member Sebas de Santiago gambled on a big step down, and rode it out - barely. We don't know where he placed, but have a look at the original image, and the look on the kids' faces says it all - he won the jump, that day.
To reward Sebas for his bravery, Five Ten is offering him a pair of their latest masterpiece - the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoes. With more landings like this one, he's gonna need 'em!
Congrats Sebas - you are Vital's Bravest for May 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.
