Jerome Clementz and all those guys have been crushing it. So now I get to go chase those guys — or they can chase me. We’ll see what happens!
In this video, the Godfather himself, Wade Simmons, gives Rocky Mountain’s long-travel 29er a going over and drops his verdict on the bike. We’ve said it before–this rig is sort of floating under the radar right now, but it deserves its share of the limelight.
In this episode, Danny jumps on the back of a motorcycle and pins it around the track with on of his heroes, Guy Martin. A 140-mile per hour joy ride whilst recovering from back surgery? It made sense at the time. Danny’s plans for the new video project also start to take shape.
You’d be forgiven for thinking Scott Sports was being a bit cocky when, just a few days before the start of this year’s Whiskey 50, the company sent out a press release touting last year’s victory at the Whiskey 50 and promising some stellar events this time around….
