Vital's Bravest - Monthly Contest Presented by Five Ten - August Winner
Joe Perrizo pulls some crazy stunts on a bike, generally making do with what he has available, in the true spirit of a street/park/general huckster. If you've never seen Joe ride before, we have a few links for you to explore below....
We thought Joe would be the perfect recipient of Vital's Bravest for August, simply because beyond skill, it takes some serious brass hardware to even consider cranking full tilt into some old tree and busting out a flair from there. Most people would never look twice at that tree, seeing how it's actually just some old tree and not a jump of any kind...but you can't argue with the results:
To reward Joe for his feats of bravery and general awesomeness, Five Ten is sending him a pair of their latest masterpiece, the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoe. By the looks of things, they'll have their work cut out for them as we predict the odd flat landing or two in their imminent future.
Congrats Joe Perrizo - you are Vital's Bravest for August 2013!
