Laurie Greenland in Bristol Days 7

There’s more to Laurie than meets the eye. You might know him as a driven downhill World Cup-winning racer or a rider with as much style and swagger as a 70s motocrosser. But he’s also a chill dude who loves being at home, skating and surfing with his mates. Laurie's hometown of Bristol is also a bit of an enigma. It’s a cultural contrarian, you could say. For a long time, it’s been an anti-establishment holdout for folks who have a healthy disregard for the status quo. If you're not familiar with the output of Bristol or some of its lore and biggest cultural exports, do yourself a favor and look it up. In this short film, we get to hear in Laurie’s own words what his life is about and see him cut some nice shapes aboard his bike and surfboard.
