Jean-Pierre van den Akker // This is Freeride

Jean-Pierre van den Akker asked me to create a short video of him riding his downhillbike, freeride style. Jean-Pierre, or "JP" as we often call him, is a great guy and has some serious skills and style on a bike. We hope this short video will give him the credit he deserves and hopefully some new sponsors to support him.
