This is a moment I will forever cherish. All my life it was a goal/dream (same thing) to be in a @nitrocircus movie. #ActionFiguresTheMovie #2 made that dream a reality. Yes, I was seriously injured filming for it and both myself and TP have gotten a lot of flack for it from the “haters”. They say how foolish I was for attempting the jump and no “fame” is worth the injury or how the crew measured calculations wrong (not the case). At the end of the day, none of this matters. I was chasing my dreams the best way I knew how and the facts are I could have very well broken my neck in a car crash on the way to the gas station and been in the same (or worse) situation.
To me, this photo reminds me that no matter how I end up coming out of this injury and how much I do or don’t get back from it, it was all worth it. To be standing (ok TP is actually holding me up...but at least it looks like I’m standing haha) next to someone who has inspired my riding nearly my entire life, on the red carpet of the movie premier of my new favorite movie... can’t top that!! So to @travispastrana and the @nitrocircus crew, thank you for welcoming me and my weird riding into the family.
To the supporters of the film, my riding, and my recovery, thank you for the constant motivation and support.
To the haters, thank you for a different kind of motivation. Now here’s some for you... spend less time on here tearing into other people’s dreams and spend that time finding out what your dreams are and chase them.
And finally, to my family, I’m sorry for all the pain I caused you all, but I hope hearing that my pain was/is all worth it helps a bit!
