Watch uber-stoked 13-year-old CJ Hauptman send the massive Brutus Road Gap.
Hauptman may be too young to drive, but he’s at the prime age for ridiculous bike jumps. Luckily, he has a mountain bike mentor like Yoann Barelli to drive him to outrageous spots like West Vancouver’s Brutus Road.
The video above is the first entry to Barelli’s “Into the Gnar Progression Team (ITGPT)” documentary series. Hauptman cuts his sending teeth on the infamous 15-foot mega-drop deep in the British Columbia backwoods.
“The idea for these first videos is for me to be with the riders, see how they ride and adapt to the new bike, and give guidance when needed,” Barelli explained.
“CJ’s process is awesome, and I’m really pumped to see that he approaches everything cautiously and takes time to look at things.”
