GRAHAM AGASSIZ, CASEY BROWN, CARSON STORCH AND THOMAS VANDERHAM ARE IN A DESERT VACATION AT SOUTHWEST UTAH!
This is another squad goals as Dakine riders Graham Agassiz, Casey Brown, Carson Storch, and Thomas Vanderham went to Southwest Utah for a Desert Vacation. In a natural surroundings, the team rides down the descents, kicking off the trails and hitting the road gaps!
“The desert of Southwest Utah has a strong effect on all who lay eyes on its twisted terrain. From the early Native American tribes who lived in harmony with this land, to the European settlers who carved out a living along the banks of the Virgin River, this magical area at the foot of Zion National Park now sees millions of visitors every year.” (Pinkbike)
First thing is Casey Brown steps it up with a step down.
Growing up watching Rampage and being a huge fan, I was so fired up to be able to ride those lines along side the guys I’ve looked up to forever, so much respect for this side of the sport.
Thomas Vanderham follows and hops in.
We don’t get too many opportunities to gather as a group so it was a blast hanging and riding with the rest of the Dakine team. Aggy and Carson have both stood on the Rampage podium, their level of comfort in that landscape is very evident and fun to watch. It was also seriously impressive to see Casey build on her own experience in Utah and charge some heavy lines without hesitation.—Thomas Vanderham
Carson Storch then loose with a flatspin 360 at 01:23.
It was a peaceful experience heading to the Utah Desert with close friends on the Dakine team. Normally the trip down there feels like we are preparing for war in some ways, Red Bull Rampage is such an intense experience and event to ride in. Getting to explore and ride different terrain around Virgin, Utah was definitely a treat, and a nice change of pace after a pinned year of traveling. Some good decompression sessions with an all time crew!—Carson Storch
All of them went on a road gap and this is the part 02:06 where Aggy was the last one to jump!
It was a great time hanging with the Dakine crew on this trip, it’s not very often that we get together like this to just have fun and ride some bikes! Everyone’s schedules are so different, Casey is traveling the globe doing film projects, racing enduros, and taking Snuff the dog on alpine heli drops! Carson is also traveling lots, slowly stepping away from competing and focusing on different projects which is rad to see! Thomas is probably one of the busiest out of the group, along with having a baby girl to take care of, he’s always on the road. It is always a pleasure to watch him ride with his timeless style on a bike. All in all the trip was all time, so stoked we all got to meet up in the desert and ride some bikes. It felt really good being there as a team, sharing laughs, and enjoying the time together. I can’t wait for our next vacation!—Graham Agassiz
