Matt Hunter’s Hometown is a Perfect Place for MTB

by 1

Shimano’s latest ‘This is Home’ video gives us a glimpse into Matt Hunter’s hometown of Kamloops. we get to see his family, the places he rides and just why he loves it so much. It looks like an incredible spot to live and ride.

For many people, mountain biking is a migratory sport. Once you get a taste for the trails, moving closer to ride every day is a no brainer for those who choose the lifestyle. For Matt Hunter, migration was never necessary. He grew up in Kamloops, where the surrounding landscape was an ever-present inspiration for his own riding. A child of the BC outdoors, Matt’s idea of a good day is any day he gets to ride his bikes.

It’s never been about being the best, but rather standing shoulder to shoulder with his peers, never apart and never above. Matt has always just wanted the sport to look as good as it feels when he stomps his butter-smooth lines and gargantuan airs. In his hometown of Kamloops, Matt never needed to journey far to escape the distractions of everyday life. Now with kids of his own, however, those precious moments are all the more enriched by the people around him. Chill rides with the fam or power trains on The Farm, This is Home.

Not too good about writing about myself, but not so bad at writing about other things. There was a time that I hated bikes, but then they became my life. Wouldn't be the person I am if I hadn't been on this journey. Here's to bikes, drinking tea and everything that comes with life on two wheels. I'm Lauren, I like bikes and writing about them. Always trying my best and up for adventures.

    That’s a great film, I remember the specialised ad’s where the rider was cornering and cranked over so much that he was scraping his bars on the ground, I thought it was photo-shopped, clearly it was this guy and doing it for real!
