Directly after winning his 12th National Trials Championship Mike Steidley came back to his home town, New Haven Connecticut, and went into total beast mode. New Haven is a playground for trials riders, the only problem with it is the police and security guards who keep a close watch over a lot of the best spots.
'We had the police called more times than I can count on this shoot,' says Mike. 'Sometimes they will even make you wipe your memory card and that is horrid.'
In order to ride like this Mike usually rides for two hours a day, five days a week, and spends another two days in the gym. After his title though he was taking it easy and just looking for some sick street riding. We'd say he scored on all accounts with this one. Mike and his crew, including DP Alex Winter, captured the action on a Canon 5D, a custom DJI Phantom drone from AMP, an AEE action POV cam, a Kessler slider, and a 25-foot jib with a remote head. Don't miss that Kali helmet either - Mike doesn't step near a bike without it.
