The Downhill Nomad Series

July 2017 | Ryan Brusca

For every one of us in the outdoor community, there are several moments in life when the call to explore presents itself. Our ancestors were nomadic out of necessity, but that sense of discovery has lived on into the modern age of man, despite our culture of building roots and structure. Today, when the call to explore strikes, some of us are lucky enough to be at a point in our lives to acknowledge the opportunity and follow our instincts into the unknown.


For Scott Connors, that call has manifested at a critical time and he is prepared to answer. We at Mountain Bike Tales had a chance to sit down with Scott as he prepared to launch his journey and assume the role of the Downhill Nomad.
