Carson Storch is one of the most talented freeriders in the world, but it is his intense passion for mountain biking that might actually be the most notable thing about him. I recently caught up with Carson about how his recovery is going from a recent injury — and how he approaches rehab in general; his background and his ascendance in slopestyle and freeride mountain biking; his plans for 2021; and more.
