Search and Rescue Reece Wallace

"Like many action sports, there's a certain level of risk with mountain biking. But most of us don’t have a consequences and contingency plan as part of our pre-ride checklist. That’s pilot lingo for being prepared. As a pilot myself, I’m trained to think about the unforeseen circumstances that can occur while flying (or riding)."

Reece Wallace loves combining two of his greatest passions in life: freeriding and flying. This is his nod to the fine people who are dedicated to finding and rescuing hikers, mountain bikers and other explorers when things go wrong in the backcountry.
