The Inside Line Podcast - Sean Griz McClendon

Sean McClendon, better known as Griz, is a one of mountain biking's greatest community members. He grew up racing downhill, eventually making his way into the pro ranks as a national level contender in the U.S. Throughout his race journey, he set out to keep mountain biking fun and spirited with the Low Budget Rollers, the 2Six Stallions and eventually put on the first MTB whip contest, the Sideflight Champs. In 2010, Griz suffered a major injury at the National Champs where he over-jumped a massive gap jump. The crash impact pushed both femur bones through his hip sockets almost taking away his mobility. His road to recovery was long and challenging, but he persevered and continues to ride hard. Today he's part of the crew at Deity components as National Sales manager and Fresh Blood talent scout. Enjoy the episode with a passionate mountain bike family member who is a true inspiration.
