Slopestyle MTB Injuries Won't Stop Antti Rissanen | Project SISU, Ep. 1
Project SISU gives you an inside look into the world of the young freestyle mountainbike rider Antti Rissanen. Sisu is a Finnish word which basically means strength, perseverance and resilience. These are really the qualities that Antti needs as he has been injured twice in two consecutive seasons which have ruined his contest seasons completely. Looking forward to the next season is something that keeps Antti pushing himself a bit further, whether on the bike or not. SISU will show you that the life of a competing freestyle athlete is not just an awesome ride but can also be extremely mentally, physically and emotionally challenging and one which requires sacrifices and compromises.
