- Bike Checks
Pavel Schwarz is one of the freeride pioneers in the Czech Republic. Not content with pushing his own limits, he also invests himself in pushing the sport. From building secret tracks to getting involved with a bike park project, Pavel gets his hands dirty so more people get to enjoy riding. Naturally, when Mad Moss films wanted to shoot a full-length feature covering the riding scene in South Bohemia, Pavel stepped up and stomped the biggest segment of the movie - including the big step down in the woods pictured above. The full movie is available below, fast-forward to about 34 minutes to enjoy Pavel's shredalicious seggy!
We think both Pavel and Mad Moss deserve to be rewarded for their bravery and their commitment to the riding scene - and Five Ten agrees, so they are offering both of them a pair of their latest masterpiece, the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoes. We're pretty sure Pavel will put them to good use!
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.
