Sweet Home Alabama! From Coldwater Mountain in Anniston to the awesome trails in Chewacla State Park and then finally finishing it off with a solid crew at Oak Mountain, this state definitely surprised me. Big thanks to the whole Alabama mountain bike crew for showing me a great time!


Although Mississippi doesn’t have the biggest mountains to descend or even the gnarliest jumps to hit, it was definitely one of my favorites! From the awesome people I met to the fun and quirky trails we rode, it will leave a solid impression on me for many years to come. Big thanks to the Bicycle Revolution crew and Derek Hobden for showing me a great time in Mississippi!


Despite there being no mountain biking in New Orleans, it was my first stop in Louisiana to cruise the streets and check it out. From there, I made my way up to Shreveport where I met up with Jordan Miller. After a quick rip at the Lake Shore Trails we headed up to Lincoln Parish Park to finish it off with Ethan Gremillion on his local trails.


The OZ trails in Northwest Arkansas have been high on my list of spots to ride for awhile now and it definitely didn’t disappoint. Huge thanks to all the awesome locals who showed me a solid time while in the area.!
