Wesley Box and Keenan Lewis started filming for a new video project at the beginning of 2020. Unfortunately COVID-19 cut our filming missions short and the footage ended up sitting around for a little bit. When I heard that both Wes and Keenan were moving to California this month, I decided that I should dust off these clips and put something together to celebrate the move. These guys worked really hard for these clips and I’m really hyped to finally put them online. The video also features a few SPoT Team riders and friends plus a few clips filmed by Carlos Andres. Hope you enjoy it! – Josh
