Bruce Won the X Games Once*
*Actually more than once if you count the Latin X Games
Bruce Crisman is probably the most mild-mannered past X Games gold medalist. He seems more like a high school guidance counselor than a guy that beat Dave Mirra, Ryan Nyquist, and other big names to take a park gold in Philly years back. These days he remains one of the most skilled bike riders on the planet, and he’s pushed a style of fakie (rollback) riding in ways most never thought possible.
Bruce lives in Portland, and passed through the studio the other day with his new Shola line of products to be shot. I’m not sure what products I can let out of the bag at this point, but since an older photo of the grips is on the Shola site, I figure those are safe along with a portrait of Bruce. Check out the Shola site for more, and for info on the August 15th Shola video premier in Portland.
