Whether you’re a newcomer or a seasoned rider, stepping outside your comfort zone is part of improving. It’s not about being number one, it’s not about being the best. It’s about finding your next – whether that’s a new goal to achieve, a new event to attend, or an epic adventure to chase. Even the top mountain bike pros began with trying a first race, and everyone has experienced those nervous butterflies at the drop in. Ride along with Transition Bikes/evo Race Team’s Matt Orlando as he prepares for a season of challenges ahead.
The freedom that mountain biking allows is one of the greatest feelings imaginable, flying down the trail leaving any stress you may have behind you. It’s easy to get bogged down in the details, maybe you ride an old bike, or your brakes are loud, or your dropper post doesn’t work quite right. It’s just as easy to forget all of that and remember why we ride bikes, because it’s fun.
