Day 64 – Easter Sunday. It’s been a tough 9 weeks so far with huge uncertainty and massive challenges for Kai, he has been fighting all the way and is making good progress. We’re eternally grateful for the support Kai has been receiving from friends and people who know him either personally or via social media, it’s a great boost for us in these difficult times.
As a family, we have been focussed on Kai but we have realised that there are many people who feel as we do and are genuinely concerned.

You had a signature frame at Haro which had a long rear end. What's the benefit of the long back-end? Nic Long: Idk if I’d say benefit, more so plagued haha. I almost can’t ride anything else now. It started cause I had a gate at my old house (that most had been to and tried) and It was super flat...

How did you end up on Clayborn bikes? James Palmer: At the end of 2017 I was looking for a new brand to build a relationship with as I had no sponsor at the time. Tory had been riding for Ssquared/Answer for a few years and spoke good things about John Sawyer and crew. And I knew John owned the Clayborn brand as well but had no Pro representing them, so I contacted John about the possibility of coming on board and thankfully we were able to work out a deal!
