The Learning Curve - Episode 4

Drew Bezanson's quest to reach Red Bull Joyride continues with a hard first contest at 26 Trix.

It's often said that 10,000 hours of practice are required to become a master in any field. In this latest episode of The Learning Curve with Drew Bezanson, we find him trying to compete with just two hours of practice before his first official contest run at 26TRIX in Austria, and following a shoulder injury that knocked him out of the Swatch Rocket Air event before even getting started.
With a hectic schedule split between BMX contests and his slopestyle endeavors, Bezanson's frustrations begin to boil over as he battles with the extremes of going from a fourth place finish at X Games on his BMX, to a less-than-stellar finish in his first recognised slopestyle contest.
I knew it was going to be a ton of work to make it to Red Bull Joyride, and it’s still going to be a ton of work, but do I still think it’s possible? Yes, I still think it’s very possible. Did I underestimate it? Sure, yes I did!
