Ryan Leech has ridden mountain bikes professionally for over sixteen years now; over that time he has been responsible for creating a whole new style of trials mountain biking, performing live in front of tens of thousands of fans and pushing the boundaries of what was considered possible on a bike.
The second in the “Why?” series exploring questions within the bike industry, this short documentary was created as a companion piece to Leech’s article, “The Cons Of Being Pro”, in which he discusses the pressures involved in performing at such a high level, how they can affect an athlete’s perception of themselves and how they could change.
