- Bike Checks
Mountain biking is about more than just riding. It's about getting out there. It's about cutting new trail, about seeing how fast you can go, about seeing how far you can jump. It's about appreciating what we have around us and exploring new frontiers, even those that are really close to home. It's about an open mind and about not being afraid of a few sticks and stones. And sometimes, it's about jumping off your shed into your pumptrack. Why? Because it's there. Pat McCarter takes full advantage of all the fun 2 wheels can bring him, and he gives back by building trails and by sharing his stoke in edits like this one. Pat, you are clearly an ideal match for the Brand of the Brave!
To reward Pat for his feats of bravery and his shredtastic shenanigans, Five Ten is sending him a pair of their latest masterpiece, the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoe. Apparently, he needs 'em!
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 inspire us!
At the end of each month, we'll announce the winner based on who stoked us out the most.
