Another awesome year is coming to an end, safe to say 2015 was one hell of a ride! A lot of things happened, both good and bad, but in the end, everyone can turn this page with a smile on his face. It's crazy to think we are all a year older than the last time I wrote this, but the fun times and insane sessions don't show any sign of slowing down! I feel blessed to have such a great group of talented people making The Rise what it is, and I can't thank y'all enough for supporting what we do! So let's get started with a little recap of 2015! Back in May, we recieved a text message from Jeremy Menduni's girlfried saying that he fell on his head and was rushed to the hospital. Doctors couldn't tell how bad it was because his face was too swollen. With such lack of details, it was without a doubt the worst moment of the year for us. The next day, we learned that his crash left him with 8 face fractures and a broken nose. But, since he's a fuckin' Boss, Jeremy handled his recovery like a champion and even managed to drop a video couple months ago! Words can't describe how stoked we are to have him back in shape and riding again! You can read about his accident and watch his video below: The Story Behind Jeremy's Face Injury Jeremy Menduni's 2015 Video After a year off the bike due to knee surgery, it was good to see Michel Plonka get back on 2 wheels! He quickly got his bike control back and appeared in a bunch of videos which you can check out below. Good to have you back homie! And since we're talking about injuries, Aidan Horn recently broke his wrist pretty bad.
