110-foot Backflip? Cam Zink and Clay Porter Make A Recipe for Massive Jumps in Sandbox

 

Cameron Zink has evolved with the sport since he started racing XC and DH at the age of 9. The evolution is perpetuated by key mentors, advancements in equipment, and deriving influences from other sports and experiences. Following your predecessors can only get you so far, but when the time comes to help shape what the next generation strives for, it is an honor and a privilege.

“I never thought I would be 34 still riding a bike for a living, let alone still getting better. Better is a key word for my every day life, just as in my career; every time I was hurt and people said I should quit or take up something else, it just kept getting better. Persevering through loss of blood and contracts has not only made me appreciate what I have, it’s given me the drive to work relentlessly to create my own destiny. This is what I have worked for since I was a kid. Including breaking my own backflip world record, which now stands at 110 feet, as seen in the last clip!”
