Drop back into winter with classic North Shore conditions on Cypress Mountain, and a friendly bet between riders.

When a downhill rider throws down the challenge, Steve Storey and Daniel Shaw respond. The wager is set, and it’s off to the races.

Can the two riders, and the Knolly Fugitive LT, keep up on Cypress’ steep, gnarly DH trails? How much is too much for the 135 mm travel trail bike?

The competition is all in good fun, but the Cypress Mountain are never easy, no matter what bike you’re riding. How will Story and Shaw fare on the trail bikes?
