VIDEO: KURT SORGE’S FREERIDE PARADISE CAPTURED IN “THIS IS HOME”
Kurt shows us where he grew up in his new video "This is Home"
Three-time Redbull Rampage champion Kurt Sorge lives the definition of the freeride lifestyle in the mountains and hills of Nelson, BC, Canada.
“The line used to be like half as long so double the walk back up but, ah, so worth it.
I’m addicted to the air-time, if I gotta walk for it, I’ll do it.” – Kurt Sorge
In this video presented by Shimano, “This is Home,” Kurt shows us the appreciation he has for where he grew up and the opportunity it provided him to be the pro he has become.
The passion of his youth has carried over into his career as a professional mountain biker. In the video his mom talks about him being out riding at all times of the day, only coming home when the sun had set. She goes on to say that that passion has never faded and that he still tells her he’s going riding whenever he stops by.
Kurt has influenced the riders in his community by proving you don’t have to be from the big city to make it.
Recently he’s been driven by a passion of exploring and spending time in the mountains on his bike. In the video he shows some of the lines he’s been building and riding in a breath-taking mountain range near his house.
Kurt is obviously comfortable going big throwing crazy tricks and pushing the level of freeride wherever he goes.
“This is home. Mountains as far as the eye can see.” – Kurt Sorge
