We love watching videos of pros as some of us aspire to their tricks or live their lifestyle. But what about the normal rider. Is he/she less passionate about riding? Here, Quentin Chaumy captures the essence of a rider named Jonathan.

The gear is not as dialed and the tricks are not as big, but the fire in the rider’s eyes is the same. The rider is in the moment and he is lost in the experience that he longs for. Jonathan’s passion runs deep so he knows that bikes will always be a part of his existence.

“Last summer, I spent a couple of days with my friend Jonathan, he’s the kind of guy who likes to ‘enjoy the ride’, he doesn’t care about how big is it, or the kind of tricks he can do… He just wants to stay on his bike for the rest of his life… Today he’s sharing his vision of the sports with you,” says Chaumy.
