If you’re a serious mountain biker, you’ve probably wondered what it would be like to become a pro, travel the world, ride incredible trails, then have yourself appear in magazines and
videos all over the planet.
We know plenty of pro riders who get to do precisely that,
but is that all they do? Do they ever work? How can they get to
do all that fun stuff and then, on top of it, actually get paid for
having fun? Is it like a vacation, or do they actually earn their
money? What is one of their days like?
On the Road With
Bearclaw and Schley
A day in the life of two legends of freeriding
“The Claw”: Darren Berrecloth lofts a classic tabletop in the
green hills near San Bernardino before heading into the desert
an hour away.
Still flying: Richie Schley helped pioneer the riding in Whistler
with fellow Hall of Famers Wade Simmons and Brett Tippie. One
of Whistler Mountain’s top trails, Schleyer, is named after him.
