Bend homegrown Carson Storch as been hanging around our shop for as long as we can remember. It all started over a decade ago when this little kid (Carson Storch) came in the shop to buy his very first mountain bike... a 24" wheel Kona. From that point on we watched and helped as Carson worked his ass off to make a career for himself. Carson has been an inspiration to us and many others who have seen this shy little kid build his own path to the top. He made his dreams come true and continues to push forward.

 

Carson's Interview on Pinkbike

Oct 4 2015. Carson Storch has had a pretty hectic season. Coming off of a stellar 2014, which saw him finish in the top 10 at Red Bull Joyride and a solid appearance at Red Bull Rampage, he entered 2015 fitter than ever, with a quiver of custom-made Diamondback bikes, and all the motivation one could ever need. He secured his first ever slopestyle contest win with a huge run at the Colorado Freeride Festival. Heading into Joyride at Crankworx Carson was in a total groove until he crashed on a routine trick in practice and broke his collarbone. With Rampage looming a mere eight weeks out, Carson has focused on recovery, strength, and learning the intricacies of his newest bike. Here’s what Carson has to say about the biggest contest of the year, which kicks off in the southern Utah desert next week.  Read the full interview on Pinkbike.
