All Hail Colt
As I already stated, I became a huge fan of Colt by the end of the week. He holds down a daily job, he owns a house, he takes care of his kid, and he handles business on the bike. The way he carries himself with a sort of blissful smirk on his face is infectious. At some point I began to wonder if Colt has it all figured out or just doesn’t care if he ever does. It’s possible that they’re the exact same thing. Either way, Colt is a flat out fucking awesome human being, but I’ll let Trey explain further: “Colt has a full time job and a kid, so he doesn’t really have time to go out and really focus on riding. This project really let him fully focus on getting something that was bad ass, even though a lot of it was just spur of the moment. We’d have one idea but end up being like, ‘Oh hey, we could do this’ and it ended up being even crazier. Any content you see of Colt was put out by him…or by one of us. His sponsor isn’t flying him out to California to film a promo for a frame. He’s literally doing it all on his own 100%. He finally got the opportunity to work with someone, like professionals, and he completely blew me out of the water as far getting clips. People just don’t understand his level of riding because he’s never had the opportunity to ever fully showcase how good he is. People always experience him in small doses, like my run at Texas Toast. He really wanted to ride, but it was all filled up so I was like, ‘dude, just go in my run.’ The fact that he just winged it and did three things that he wanted to do… He killed it and made that impression on people where they’re like, ‘Oh my god, this dude is crazy.’ But, I feel like he’s gone his whole life like that—it’s been that one video or that one clip and then it goes it away. Hopefully this project shows how high of a level he rides at on a normal basis, because he wasn’t like ‘Alright, I’m gonna go in.’ That’s just the way he operates. His normal level of riding is so crazy that he doesn’t think anything of it. When in reality it’s, ‘No dude, you’re out of your mind.’ That’s what makes it so great…it’s so natural. It’s not forced. And he always pushes it to the next level. Like when he did the grind on that rail into the pallets! I was like, “Alright, you’re gonna double peg it?” And he said, “Anyone could double peg it...I’m going to feeble it.” And he did it in the rain…why would you do that [laughs]?
