The Learning Curve Episode 2 is now live! This week, Drew gets a new toy as he unwraps his all new Trek Ticket S and test drives it at his home park Joyride 150 in Toronto. But he’s quick to realize that there is plenty different about the new setup beyond just the wheel size…

“A BMX bike is rigid, it’s pretty straight forward. But with a mountain bike, there’s so much more that goes into it. The biggest part was like how much PSI do you put in your front and back suspension?” – Drew Bezanson

A trip to New Zealand for Crankworx Rotorua gives Drew his first taste of the contest scene as he gets some tips from the big dogs on tour including Sam Pilgrim, Thomas Genon and Nicholi Rogatkin.

“I want to do this the legit way and qualify, so at the end of the day no-one can be like ‘Oh, he was just able to ride these contests because he rides for Red Bull’… I want them to respect the path I took to riding with these guys” – Drew Bezanson

The Learning Curve is a six-part series released every Monday that captures the high-fives, tumbling lows and humbling experience of Drew Bezanson’s first season on the FMB World Tour of slopestyle mountain biking as he attempts to earn a spot at Red Bull Joyride on Sunday, August 21st.
