Vision is more than Sight

Posted on by in Video with 4 Comments

This is Matt Gilman’s latest video, Vision is more than Sight. You may remember Matt from our feature story in issue #17, Riding Blind, profiling him, his loss of vision and his rather humbling fight to get back on the trials bike no matter what.

I rode observed trials for a few years in the late 90′s and Matt is far more skilled than I ever was, and can’t even see where he is landing. Amazing every time I watch.
