Matt Whitaker from Wide Open Distributors has been supporting Gravity for a quite a while. Matt has a very keen eye for finding up and coming riders and supporting them through their way to the top. A prime example of this is Gravity’s Heavy Hitter Kelly McGarry. Kelly came to Gravity over 5 years ago now, and has definitely left his mark both on the World of Freeride and on us as a whole.
Kelly, Conor, Matt Scoles, and Wyn Masters teamed up for a Road Trip through out NZ and the final product is below.
A new face you might recognize on the Gravity Team brought to us by Wide Open is Conor Macfarlane. Conor took 2nd place at the Farm Jam 2 years in a row, as well as competing in Multiple events throughout Europe last summer. Conor is eager to show the world his skills on all different types of bikes, and we are super stoked to officially announce his involvement with Gravity’s Pro Team.
You might remember this video from Conor last year…
If you live in NZ, Wide Open Distributers is the place to can refer your shop to when you’re looking to ride the same gear these boys are on. A big shout out goes to Matt Whitaker from Wide Open for organizing this trip for your viewing pleasure! By the way you can find some sweet pics from the trip here.
The Farm Jam also went down earlier this month and making an appearance was Gravity’s Conor Macfarlane, Kelly McGarry, and Mike Hopkins. Kelly and Conor shredded the Dirt Jumps and Conor ended up taking home 2nd again this year. Once again Gravity was one of the premier sponsors of the Farm Jam, and it really went off this year. Check out a few of these photos from the event, and be sure to watch the video.
