Social Bytes: Coronado Teen, Eddie Reynolds, “Whips” for the Gold and Finishes Fourth in Dual Slalom

A few months ago, The Coronado Times reported that Coronado’s Eddie “Shreddie” Reynolds was turning pro – he’s only 17. Turns out, he just did a “hard launch” in Canada at the Crankworx Whistler event where he took first place (gold medal) in the “Whip Off” competition and finished in fourth place in the dual slalom.

Here is a video of his best “whip” – a bike big air where you turn (whip) the back of your bike sideways and then bring it back before landing.

In the Crankworx Dual Slalom event, Eddie made his way to the top four beating out many seasoned pros. Not a bad way to introduce yourself to the big boys of mountain biking!
