A Little Help from Some Friends 20

A Vital MTB MUST WATCH from Ray's Milwaukee. What started out as a a fun, grom interrogation session with Kirt Voreis, turned into a life-changing experience for a young rider named Alex. After 20 minutes and 2 million run-ups, a crowd gathered and Alex conquered his fears. Long live Voreis!

    Awesome! Reminds me of teaching kids how to jump off a diving board for the first time. Sometimes it takes a lot of hesitating before you take that plunge, but it's so worth it. Voreis is great.

    Every park needs a man like Kirt. That kid Alex will remember that for a long time and his confidence will be through the roof. That's a big deal at that age. Not only Kirt but everyone else getting behind him to do it as well. Good vibe, good times. Hope my boys get the same treatment from the older ones when they hit up our local park.

    Solid hustle is right, I saw Voreis and that kid pulling the same con at Rays in Cleveland last year, they split over $100 that day. hahaha

    Was awesome, I was there waving cash in the crowd at him from the beginning, figured a buck each from a few hundred people has made riders do crazier things ! Once a few others waved some cash it totally snowballed, think he ended up with $73. Great time at Rays MKE !
