Pro riders may pass hundreds of hours waiting for the ideal weather in which to film their exploits. These hours can serve as a catalyst for pranks—and sometimes shit just goes a little further than expected.

Can we hang with this bunch?) Also, Zeb doesn’t look too bad in a TGR mask if we do say so ourselves! Let the good times roll and watch it
Living in a mountain town means the fun never really stops, especially during the overlap of seasons, when ripping on dirt and snow are possible on the same day (or even at the same time). For a few weeks in the spring, Snowshoe, West Virginia can be shared by riders looking for both dirt and snow. So of course, Carson Storch invited his buddy Jaxson Riddle, and snowboarders Sean Fitzsimons and Luke Winkelman to shred a custom-built snow and dirt track to celebrate the changing of the
