“Everything has to start somewhere and for me, my love of riding started a long time ago. Back in 2000, I was riding a hardtail on sketchy ladder bridges made out of pallets, and looked up to legends like Wade Simmons, Tyler Klassen, Dan Cowan, and many others. Riding styles, trails, and bikes have sure changed a lot since then. 15 years have passed since those early days, but every time I get back on my bike I still get that stoke like I’m riding my bike for the first time again.” – Dean Tennant
