Rider: Reed Stark

There is something about riding sketchy backyard ramps that never gets old; the tight, spongy transitions, rotting wood and patched holes only seem to add to the fun. If you are Reed Stark, none of these things even come close to slowing you down. With the Minnesota winter nipping at our heels, we have to savor every outdoor session–no matter how haphazard–we can get. Soon we’ll be stuck riding indoor parks while the elements slowly eat away at our backyard ramps until spring.
