Kelly McGarry’s Legacy Lives On With This Young Kiwi Rider

Freeride mountain biker Kelly McGarry was the kind of person whose influence reached far past just the mountain bike world, thanks to his infectious stoke, down-to-earth personality and outright generosity, not to mention his legendary riding. Contests like Red Bull Rampage would not be the same without his pioneering riding style and absolute massive hucks, like his backflip over the infamous canyon gap in 2015.

McGarry tragically passed away in 2016, near his home around Wakefield, NZ. His legacy has lived on through the Kelly McGarry Foundation, set up by friends and family to support mountain biking in his home country.

Sam Gale, a 16-year-old rider from McGarry’s hometown, embodies the legend’s spirit in his riding. Shred Optics teamed up with the McGarry Foundation to support the young rider. His riding, even at such a young age, already speaks for itself.

Vincent Tupin’s New Trick: Snow Handers

Vincent Tupin really does not want to hang up his bike this year. After an epic year including a spot at Rampage and some insane video parts, he decided to get even more creative on his DH bike. A ton of early season snow in the Alps made some of his favorite trails a little tough to ride, but that did not stop him from absolutely sending it on the big bike. Coming from the snow and bike world, this is exactly what we like to see!
