Once you’ve been at the top of your game, it’s a hard thing to reconcile with yourself when things start to slide. What do you do when you can’t seem to get back on top? How do you deal with others beating you at your own game?

That’s the topic of conversation with Adam Brayton (FB // TW // IG), a pro downhill racer who’s had some very impressive World Cup finishes. But the last couple years have been tough, so we talk about how he deals with that mentally and emotionally. And how he’s prepared himself to come back faster, stronger and better than ever for 2019! We also dig into his sponsors a bit, and how he helps them with development and testing.
