That time when a childhood dream came true.

That time when a childhood dream came true, and I joined the Rocky Mountain freeride team. Growing up in British Columbia, Rocky Mountain was a staple brand, and joining forces was a standout memory for sure!!

Next 40th Anniversary Vaea Verbeeck's 2018 Altitude For its first trip, I took it to New Zealand which was my first time in this dreamy country that I now call my home away from home. That added to how special it made this bike for me. It was also part of a shift in my career; veering off of world cup downhill racing and starting to lean towards Crankworx events.
