Marc O'Brien

I hail from:
Whitefish, Mt

But I am most at home:
In Montana

I pay my bills by:
Putting coversheets on TPS Reports

I never leave home without:
a baseball hat

My three favorite pieces of Kitsbow kit are:
Adjustable Short V4, Collard Henley, Origin Base Short

I love them because:
They are the perfect cycling kit. Ditch the base short and you can do anything in them. run, hike, climb a mountain, go to the pub, etc.

You see this scar? I got this when I:
Fell off my bike in one of those sandtraps on Slickrock trail back in the 80's

The closest I ever came to dying was:
"The Cold Ride" last June in Glacier Park.

The closest I’ve been to complete and profound enlightenment was:
High in the mountains, far away from the truck

My favorite place to ride (that I am willing to tell you about) is:
hmm.... Either Retallack Lodge in BC or Ainsa Spain

My favorite secret spot is:
Somewhere in the state of Montana, but you have to be jumped into a gang and learn how to crochet before I can say anymore. I'm going to tell you anyway because it is about to be closed to bikes and managed as Wilderness (even though it's just a Wilderness Study Area). 10 Lakes Wilderness Study Area outside of Eureka Montana.

If I ever won an Oscar, my 10-word speech would go like this:
Hi Mom!

Lastly, shout out to:
My 4 year old

Because:
All she wants to do is ski, ride bikes and draw fairies.

Marc is a photo-adverturer based out of Whitefish, Montana. He gravitates towards the more epic, wild backcountry rides, but also loves berms, jumps, bike and park laps. Racing BMX as a kid in SLC, he was quickly drawn to the freedom and thrill riding trails. His first mountain bike was a Bridgestone MB3 with biopace chainrings and suntour thumb shifters. On his first mountain bike road trip back in '87 with his older sister, he road what was then the "Slick Rock Motorcycle Trail" and saw just one other rider the entire day. A great memory and one forever etched as a chainring scar on his thigh from one of those lovely sand traps.
