Video: 71-Year-Old Shreds the Whistler Bike Park

For Dr. John Rideout age doesn’t mean a thing. At 71, he still shreds the Whistler bike park like a day hasn’t gone by. If you’re around the trails you just might see him sending it into Freight train, Dirt Merchant, Lower A-line, and then into Hornet—that’s his favorite line to take in the park. When he drops into Dirt Merchant he has to remind himself that he's not 26 anymore, even though he’s a 3-time World Masters DH champion. He’s not stopping there. Still competing, he’s hoping to race at the Mt St. Anne World Championships in 2019. 

Wow! Stronger than I am. It makes me feel happy knowing that 74 years old is still able to do things like this. Just amazed! greenville sc concrete contractors

This is amazing. I aspire to be this fit when I’m in my 70’s. Sadly, I can’t even now do what he’s doing at age 71. But cheers to him.

Awesome is an understatement! This takes so much hard work and dedication, other people would probably not even know. Keep it up!!! epoxy garage floors
