SERIES DESCRIPTION: Renowned BMX rider and Canyon CLLCTV rider Brad Simms headed to Crankworx – Whistler with his mountain bike this summer and had a blast. Simms was so stoked on the trails that he wanted to ride the wave and keep shredding. Therefore, he brought together four friends, two bikes, and an airplane for a whirlwind trip of 3,001 miles featuring four unique locations and riders. With Canyon’s Stitched CFR Trials and Torque 27.5 CFR stowed away, Brad and his crew hit the open skies to meet up with teammates, including Enduro World Champion Jesse Melamed (Squamish), young CLLCTV shredder Canyon Jones (Boise), trials legend Aaron Lutze a.k.a. SUPER RIDER (San Francisco) and pro freeride mountain biker Samantha Soriano (Winter Park). Follow Simms in “Take Flight” as he takes the slow airways home from B.C. to Texas, stopping along the way to ride everything from alpine trails to city streets.”
