Rooted is a three-part video series that will explore the past and the journey Keegan Wright, Greg Callaghan and Georgia Astle have taken to become the established mountain biking professionals they are today.
If you just look at the racing, Keegan Wright’s path to the Enduro World Series doesn’t seem surprising. Like many mountain bike greats, his trademark power and bike skills come from years of snapping gates and flowing rhythm sections on a bmx track as a kid. Naturally, he stepped up to downhill racing as a teenager and then enduro and pumptrack, which became his two specialties.
Today his resume has highlights from almost every discipline and, at 24, the young man’s future in racing looks bright. But it hasn’t always been this way. Rooted In New Zealand tells the unlikely story of Keegan Wright’s path to a life as a pro racer.
