Rob Welsh didn’t start his two-wheeled career on a downhill bike. In fact, it was quite the opposite. BMX bikes and dirt jumpers were the name of the game, and concrete jungles were the venue. However, due to a lingering knee injury, Welsh started to ride bikes with more suspension in an effort to take the strain off his knee. A full-on downhill rig ended up being the steed of choice, and Welsh has slowly progressed his riding on the dirt back at the level he wants it to be—needless to say he isn’t holding back.
