Last weekend I attended spring training at Highland Mountain. I'm going to go ahead and say it was one of the best times I've had on my bike in years. Friday night I got to be a part of a late night HTC session that got out of control. Carson Storch, Brayden Barrett-hay, Dustin Gilding, Brett Rheeder, Nick Clarke and myself had full access to a building built for learning bike tricks. Riding with these dudes was off the hook! The way they pushed each other and the confidence they road with was unreal, I took advantage and got in on the action. I had no intentions to film till about 12:30 when there was talk of a front flip drop to resi. I got a few quick clips while I waited to catch the banger trick of the night.
Saturday morning, after a super motivating night in the HTC, It was time to accomplish the trick that I've been trying to understand for years, the front flip. I started the mission using the all new Ayr bag setup at the bottom of the claymore course, the most realistic, forgiving training tool before the real deal. I wanted to capture the process on film so I setup my camera and hit record. After a few hikes up and down from the Ayr bag to the new step up jump I was ready to give it a go.
