Wade is the undisputed Godfather of freeride. Hands down. You’d be hard-pressed to find a freeride DVD or magazine that doesn’t feature or mention the man who essentially defined freeride and embodies the soul of the sport. He is the inaugural Red Bull Rampage Champion, and arguably the most stylish and fluid rider to ever hit the North Shore. In 2010 Wade was inducted to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame alongside original Froriders Brett Tippie and Richie Schley, the first freeriders ever inducted. If he wasn’t such a nice guy, you’d hate him for being so good.
