Mountains Thought Never to be Conquered. Well Jon DeVore just did so.
For some reason I have the bad habit of placing myself in the shoes (in this case ski boots) of the athletes in the videos I watch. This tends to leave me sitting in my comfortable, ergonomic office chair staring at a 15” monitor with my adrenaline pumping like I just ran the streets of Pamplona. Then it just gets weird when a coworker walks by and I’m out of breath. This video was no exception.
So today’s insane video for you- Speedriding, conquering Alaska’s unrideable mountains. I like this video for two reasons. One, I watch and get sent a ton of AK videos after spending my childhood up there. This is one of the better ones. Two, one of these Red Bull athletes in named Jon DeVore, just like the father of founder Christopher DeVore. So watching Papa DeVore’s alter ego fly through the mountains of Alaska never ceases to entertain.
Watch for yourself, and try to keep your jaw from dropping.
