As a 12x U.S. National Trials Champion, Pat Smage can ride just about everything. But his latest video is more than just mind-bending moves on a bike. It has that too, but more importantly, “Le Tour de Farm” is a tribute to his grandparents and their farm which was instrumental in developing his success on two wheels.

From Pat Smage:

Growing up on this farm has made my life what it is today, and I am not even a farmer! Being able to ride bikes around the farm my whole life has led me all around the world to do just that.

While most of that is for motorcycles, it all started on bicycles. After losing my Grandpa Harold in 2017 and Grandma Joy this year, I felt like it was time for a tour of the farm, by bike of course.

While my Dad, brothers and I have done most of the trail, track, and trials area building, it was all thanks to my Grandparents who provided and let us turn their land into a playground for bikes. I am so thankful for that, and this video will always be a great reminder of how lucky I am to live here.

Huge thanks to my wife Hannah for doing so much filming for this! She put in a lot of time behind the camera and had plenty of patience for some of those tricky moves that took more than a few tries…

Thanks for watching! Also thanks to Ibis for providing the bike, PNW components for the parts to make it a little easier to ride, and POC Sports for the protection.

    Hey Pat, you are my all time Favorite American MTB Trials Rider. Funny your Love of Riding all started on a Farm. My Dream is to turn a Farm, Abandined Gravel Pit or Sandwash in to a MTB Park, AKA a Bike Farm here in the Mid-Atlantic (East Coast, Maryland, Delaware, Southern NJ). Thanks for all the inspiration, be Blessed.
