It was a good run…
After many years of riding, filming and fun times with SCOTT Sports the Coastal Crew will move on. We at Scott are sad to say that it is over but, it was a good run.
Kyle Norbraten from the Coastal Crew reflects on his time at SCOTT Sports, “I have had a great time aboard SCOTT bikes. The first time I visited Switzerland to ride, I created a new friendship with Ben Walker, and from there I began growing a relationship with SCOTT without even knowing it. As I progressed with them, the Coastal Crew became more defined as well, with first Dylan and then Curtis getting on board the bikes too. We (The Coastal Crew) were able to accomplish many of our goals with the backing of SCOTT, but like most great things, this too has come to an end. We have many great memories to look back on and are happy to continue friendships that extend beyond the boundaries of business. We thank SCOTT Sports for all the support they have provided us, and wish them all the best. It’s been a great run!!”
Ben Walker fondly remembers the beginnings, “From the first year meeting Kyle in Champéry before he was part of the Crew, to watching their segments in the Kranked movies, and now with the release of their first feature film, I am truly proud of everything they have accomplished. Watching them grow from a dream to a fully respected reality has been better than I could ever have imagined. My hat is off to the Coastal Crew! You guys have made it, and what you express through your films really touches me as a rider. We wish you the best!”
Adrian Montgomery added, “Very early on we recognized the talent and uniqueness of The Coastal Crew. There were very few groups of Freeriders that displayed the sense of comaraderie among Freeriders and the group participation elements while capturing it all on video. We’re satisfied with the time we spent with them, and we look forward to scouting new talent that can step up and be a part of our Team.”
The Crew’s next move is still under wraps but it will be announced very soon.
We leave you with this last edit from the Coastal Crew on SCOTT bikes.
And with that SCOTT is proud to announce that we will be looking for a new SCOTT Freeride Crew. In the coming months, we plan to unveil a competition that will result in the next SCOTT Freeride Crew. The competition will entail all of the elements we liked in our previous Crew; a tight knit group who can film, edit, ride and document it all for submission in the contest. So, if you and your Crew are ready to take the next step, orgainize your content, and stay tuned for the instructions to submit your multi-media resume to be the next SCOTT sponsored Crew.
Where will the crew end up? Can Scott find another Crew?
