http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com http://tractionerag.com The film makers behind the great Fifty Years of Kicks have been hard at work on a new project – Checkpoints. This feature-length motorcycle doco was filmed in Ontario, Canada, and it sets out to look at living a life devoted to off-road riding. They check in with five riders including Graham Jarvis, Colton Haaker, Paul Rodden and Larry Murray to discuss living an off-road lifestyle. Colton Haaker is the reigning 2016 FIM SuperEnduro World Champion and 2016 AMA EnduroCross National Champion. Colton comes into the X Games debut of Snow BikeCross riding a lot of hype, but says he's downplaying his expectations: riding with a snow bike conversion kit on his bike hasn't come as naturally as he'd imagined. Still, Colton Haaker a fierce competitor with a background in endurocross, motocross, trials and freeriding. Haaker is extremely adaptable, and Colton is not the only snow bike newbie in the field.
