Pat Smage grew up riding on his grandparent’s farm. In between tractors and corn rows, he built the berms and trails that would help him become a 12x US National Trials Champion. In this video, he pays homage to his roots by highlighting the family farm on his Hakka MX.
“Growing up on this farm has made my life what it is today, and I am not even a farmer! Being able to ride bikes around the farm my whole life has led me all around the world to do just that. While most of that is for motorcycles, it all started on bicycles. After losing my Grandpa Harold in 2017 and Grandma Joy this year, I felt like it was time for a tour of the farm, by bike of course. While my Dad, brothers and I have done most of the trail, track, and trials area building, it was all thanks to my Grandparents who provided and let us turn their land into a playground for bikes. I am so thankful for that, and this video will always be a great reminder of how lucky I am to live here.”
