If you haven’t watched my last video from @highland_mtn, you are missing out. Meet @max_da_sender, a 13 year old sender with some of the biggest whips I’ve ever seen! You’ll be hearing about him more in the future.

@haileysarausky Stopped by @sentiersdumoulin on our way to MSA to watch the world championships. We ran into @ben_cathro and @bkxc and got some laps in. From the little time I spent here, I can say these are some of the most fun trails I’ve ridden and are well worth a visit.

Throwback Thursday: October 2015, the Collegiate Nat. Champs downhill track at Snowshoe WV included this rock huck that you'll see on the World Cup course this weekend. I saw @ben_cathro and @wynmasters mention it in their track walk videos.

While she didn't huck over the rock, this rock drop is the same feature where  @haileysarausky broke her ankle the previous year's spring (before I even met her). She's come a long way since, but the consequences of that crash still affect her to some degree to this day.

They call this feature Manny Ramirez if you manual the deck, and Big Poppy if you send it! #bigpapi @davidortiz. The new Fort Hill  trail at @thundermountainbikepark is the first Proline on the east coast and is well deserving of that rating! 😶

Also @haileysarausky's giggles are cute ❤️ My sponsors

After borrowing many bike bags from my generous friends all these years, I now have a bike bag of my own thanks to @evocusa who sent me this pretty blue. It's probably the only time my bike feels safe when flying through the air 😂. The question is, where am I off to this time?🤔✈️.
.
Disclosure: I got the bag for free so consider this a #sponsored post but I've used their bags before and can say from personal experience they make traveling with a bike 20x easier.
.
Also big thanks to @sethsbikehacks @morse.ah @dcw535 @haileysarausky @matthewarmstrong1023 @steve_kahn for lending me a bike bag/box at some point.
Derailling the @foxmtb Party train at the @foxusopenmtb 🙈🚂💨, thanks  @kirtvoreis_allride for sparing my life 😂

The kids on the sideline asked if I'd flip the @foxusopenmtb whip off jump for them, so I obliged. Not the prettiest flip but  it's the biggest flip I've done and I  rode out of it to stoked fans so that's all that matters.😁 📹 @paulthepunter

What a weekend! Downhill, enduro and whip off all on the same bike. Felt good to get between the tape again, and meet all the awesome fans who came out for the @foxusopenmtb

Big thanks to my sponsor @foxmtb for bringing me out here, @gtbicycles for making a sick ass bike and @noblwheels for some bomb proof wheels.

Nobl (@noblwheels) just released the Whistler Raw video i filmed with them while out in whistler. It's on the front page of pinkbike right now! 
Fun fact, the filmer 📹@max_mcculloch was hobbling up the hill the whole time on crutches, what a baddass! He also shreds and you should follow him (and Nobl)

Trails are looking quite dusty at @boltonvalley these days, Let’s hope we get some rain soon😂

Side note; I took @bcpov and @vangirlyuka for a Vermont trails tour in some of the most miserable conditions I’ve ridden in, I hope they come back it’s usually really nice here I swear! Anyway This was my first chance to really put the  @foxmtb  attack line up of gear through the paces. It kept me nice and warm while riding, almost made me forget about the rivers on the trails and literally freezing cold conditions (It was literally snowing at one point 🥶) #Gtforce @gtbicycles

Some good old sloppy wet fun at the @boltonvalley grassroots Enduro race. 
Glad I wore my @foxmtb RPC helmet today. Took a pretty big slam on stage 2 (GoPro died right before start). I slipped off a wooden bridge and couldn’t save it. My helmet may be KO, but 🙂

It was over 4 years ago  that @haileysarausky hit this drop at @highland_mtn (on a downhill bike). This year she’s made really huge gains, but mainly in her own self confidence, though I think her getting a new bike has certainly helped. The thing that impressed me most is just how in control she is. She’s, certainly capable of bigger, but I’d rather see her play it smart and hit things when she’s ready. Okay, I’m done being a proud boyfriend.

Fall riding conditions in New England are some of the best. Here’s a quick clip from happy hour at @highland_mtn this past weekend. Full video will be up Sunday.
