I’m the kind of guy who loves to be spontaneous and when Lance Canfield gave me a call one morning and asked if I wanted to ride his Canfield Brothers’ Balance prototype in the Bootleg Canyon Banzai Enduro Race, you can imagine I was pretty stoked. The call came the day before the race, and I don't yet have a driver's license, so I talked my mom into a quick road trip to Boulder City to take advantage of this rad opportunity.
