We first crossed paths with Justin Wyper in 2006. He was riding a beaten hardtail and he kept crashing hard, eventually putting himself out of the competition. He was back with new skills and a new attitude in 2008 – but a similarly ratbagged bicycle. He stole the show with his winning attitude and his big, smooth tricks and we were happy to snag him for team nsmb. Since then Justin has had some nice results and some bad luck – including broken bones at consecutive Cranworx Slopestyle events – but overall it’s been awesome having him along for the ride.
Wyper is ready to take it to the next level and nsmb.com are stoked that he’s found a sponsor combo that is going to allow him to pursue his goals as a rider.
Give ‘er Justin!
Here’s the press release from R.C.S. as well as a hectic video with a ground-breaking trick thrown by Justin.
November 1, 2010 (Ladysmith, BC) – Renegade Cycle Solutions (R.C.S.) the Canadian distributor for X-Fusion Shox, is proud to announce the signing of 22 year old Justin Wyper for the 2011 season.
