Reader: Stoked to see Kevin Pearce get back on board
Two years after a traumatic brain injury knocked him out of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Kevin Pearce is back on board -- and will be riding one in Breckenridge today, before he moves behind the mike for this week's Winter Dew Tour's Nike Open.
Pearce emceed the U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain over the weekend and will be back on duty for the Dew, which gets under way with qualifiers Thursday.
But first he's going to take a few rides himself, and that prospect thrills fans like Dave in Denver:
So stoked for KP. Unfortunately can't be up there due to work, but heading up Friday and looking forward to seeing him this weekend at the bottom of the pipe. Pretty please, whatever you do, don't run into him and knock him down!
Want to join Pearce for his first ride? Get up to the top of Breck's Peak 8 by 1 p.m. today.
