Goals for 2022:
Goal #1 is always to win Rampage.  I’m also focusing on the Proving Grounds Tour and defending my title there. Filming numerous projects is on top of the list too! But most of all, I’m overjoyed to be riding PROPAIN Bicycles around the world and having fun.

Carson Storch got his first mountain bike at the age of ten. But even before then, he spent a lot of his early years on a BMX or racing motocross and then snowboarding in winter. The growing mountain bike scene in his hometown of Bend, Oregon has been an immense influence and allowed him to spend a lot of time on the bike and with friends progresing, until he competend in his first dirt Jump and slopestyle contest at the age of 17. In the following years he then rode in the FMB World Tour until 2014, when he was then invited to premier events like RedBull Joyride, Crankworx an RedBull District Ride.

“If you’re not having fun, don’t do it” words from his childhood mentor, Kirt Voreis. That’s why even in the most stressful situations, Carson tries not to lose his fun side and is happy to have a laugh.

Away from competitions, he’s busy shovelling new trails, doing charity work, planning his own events, and is always working on his next new video project. In movies such as North of Nightfall and Return to Earth you can see and admire him with his unique style.

Come and meet Carson at our next PROPAIN Bicycles USA Demo Tour Stop, at the Sea Otter Classic from April 07 – 10, 2022. There will be a signing session on Friday and Saturday.

But let Carson himself say a few words about his new bike:

I spent most of my time on the Spindrift, set up 27.5" wheels front and rear. I have it set up basically for Rampage and big jumps, with stiff/progressive/slow rebound. It will most likely be the main bike I will ride and compete on. It's light, nimble, and the suspension platform is amazing. Can't wait to spend more time on the whole range of PROPAIN bikes as well.
