From Giant Bicycles: The 90s and early 2000s were the glory days of freeride. Skinnies, ladder bridges, and teeter totters paved the way for riders like Reece Wallace to carve his own path. Extrapolating from old-school freeride, Wallace drew inspiration to build new features which paid homage to this past in ‘Glory Daze’.
“I was inspired to build classic North Shore style stunts with a new school approach. Riding gives me an outlet to push and better myself like nothing else, but in order to do so you gotta build the stunts to support this. Each one of these features I had a specific move in mind, and catered each board or shovel full to make it happen” – Reece Wallace
“Almost every stunt in this video had to be built, tested, then rebuilt to make it ride the way I wanted. Moving lips, adjusting boards, changing gaps—all part of the process. With the help of my team, I put about 50 days of building into this video. As things rarely go as planned, I had to learn to surrender the outcome and embrace the process.” – Reece
