The Inside Line Podcast - Jeff Lenosky, Trials and Freeride MTB Legend

Jeff Lenosky is a household name for any long-time mountain biker. The diversely talented rider started skating and riding BMX as a youngster and pointed those skills at a mountain bike in high school. At 6'4", the BMX bikes were always small for him, so mountain bikes were a perfect fit. Finding his way into a cross country race, he realized that trials existed and was a progression of street riding he was doing at home. While working at a machine shop, he built his own triple clamp trials fork, created his own pre-V-brakes and chased his passion to become a professional mountain biker using every opportunity he could. Once he had 75 sponsors on his jersey because he thought the more the better, but Jeff, who has plenty of natural business sense, quickly learned the best strategies and angles for being a long-time professional mountain biker. Enjoy the stories and experiences of one of mountain biking's finest.
