Aaron Gwin is the reigning UCI World Cup title winner. When the cameras are rolling and the crowds are roaring, he's the rider to watch. The quietly-spoken Californian lets his riding do the talking and as a result, he's a man in demand.
The UCI World Cup season is relatively short however and outside of the white heat of the summertime battles, Aaron retreats to his native Cali. In our new series, Off-season, we hang out with the man they call 'The Gwinner' and find out what really makes him tick.
In this, the first episode, he shows us where he grew up riding, the jumps he built for the Tipping Point video and go for a ride on the motos with a close personal friend (and super-fast racer, of course!) Mark Samuels.
