Paul Genovese – 2nd Home
This guy got past a broken femur and titanium hardware installations to ride professionally for Mongoose Bikes, and now he’s sending it like some kind of killer mountain biking cyborg from the future! Watch Paul Genovese’s loam busting art of flight on the trails of Coast Gravity Park, BC.
“In the spring of 2014 I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to move west from the East Kootenays to the Sunshine Coast of BC after living in Fernie for my entire life. I was looking to migrate to a place which allowed me to ride my bike all year, so I packed my car and loaded my bikes.
“After a season of non-stop riding in 2015 I had a bit of a mis-step, I came up short on the the first double during Logan Peats Backwoods Jam and broke my Femur.
“I was about 2 1/2 months into rehab when I received a call from Leigh Ramsdell asking me to ride for Mongoose Bikes, which I appreciated heavily because it was some light at the end of the tunnel considering I could barely walk at that point!
“I worked hard at rehab and was able to make a full recovery, so after a season with a new sponsor and some titanium leg hardware this is my first video back.”
A big thanks to Mongoose, SRAM/Rockshox, Fox head, Chromag and Fernie Physio for the support! Also a shoutout to Coast Gravity Park, The Coastal Crew, Logan Peat, Nick Tingren, the Ride or Die crew and Mindspark Cinema who made this video happen. – Paul Genovese
