The small valley town Fernie, B.C. has produced one of the biggest up and coming stars in the Freeride mountain bike scene. Paul Genovese is on his way to continuously compete for top podium finishes at events around the world. Participating in his first Redbull Joyride experience, he threw out a ridiculous Superman Seat Grab to get the crowd raving. Praised by Redbull Joyride Champion, Brandon Semenuk, Paul showed signs that he is right where he needs to be. From rookie to one of the favorites for the Joyride, Paul will amaze in future contests.
