Either this huge rock drop-in isn’t as steep as it looks, or Kyle Mears has some incredible bike control, not to mention trustworthy tires and brakes. Mears mentioned in his Instagram post that he found the will to drop in on the face–which was originally ridden by Kenny Smith–from the memory of friends who have passed away. “I was scared shitless here. I actually had to harness the will to do it from good friends who are now deceased. Johnny Hymas, Anna Cabral, Mary Hoyle and others,” said Mears.
