Josh Carlson is a true Frother (with a capital F). [private]
Josh made a name for himself in the mountain bike world as a cross country racer of immense skill, bringing his previous experience as a motocross rider to the trails. He soon gained a reputation as the fastest descender on the Nationals XC circuit, and possible the most enthusiastic person on the planet.
More recently, Josh has packed up and moved across the Pacific. Basing himself out of Vancouver, Carlso has been tearing it up on the booming Super-D and Enduro downhill scene across North America.
It’s the perfect discipline for him – a mix of balls out descending and horrendously fast-paced climbs. “I’ve actually popped blood vessels in my eyes,” Josh told us when we questioned him about the climbs. “It’s pretty crazy,” he froths, “you’re racing downhill flat stick, pretty much in your underpants, on bikes that most people just trail ride.”
Liam Renault caught up with Josh when he was in Whistler recently. Watch what happens when Carlso is unleashed on a techy, root-infested trail on his Giant Reign.
