2022 Traily Awards & Bloopers – Plus Trail Sage recap and future goals

What a year! Let’s give out some awards, reflect on the past, and talk about the future. Finally, we’ll close it all out with some of this year’s best outtakes and bloopers.

Looking back on 2022 we had an amazing year filled with new adventures. We tested several products along the way, and documented my journey back from a separated shoulder. From collaborations with other YouTubers, to eScooter reviews, we covered a lot of topics. I’m excited to see what 2023 will have in store for us.

Thank you to all my subscribers and supporters, and a special shout out to those of you who took the extra step to become a member! None of this happens without you and your support means everything to me.

Lastly, big props to my Dad, Dan @the_ride_abides, Anthony @anthony_vega1, and George for their help with filming and production throughout the year.

2022 Traily Awards

Traily Award for best mountain bike destination:

The Lemmon Drop in Tucson Arizona

Due to all the snow, we were unable to start at the very top, so instead we began our adventure in the beautiful lush forests of Green Mountain where the views and exposure were both scary and breathtaking. 

But the stunning overlooks and technical riding didn’t end there.  We finished our ride in the desert terrain Arizona is most known for, on the infamous LaMilagrosa trail. 

This was truly an epic ride not just because of the amount of time it took us to finish
but because of the variety ecosystems we passed through.  If you are ever in the Tucson area, I would highly recommend doing this ride.

Honorable Mention:
Michaux State Park in Pennsylvania


Traily Award for favorite product/gear:

Telesin Motorized Dolly Car

The Telesin Motorized Dolly Car.  Not only has this product changed the way I get those amazing shots you see in my reviews, but at just under $150 dollars it’s a piece of tech that won’t break the bank. 

From it’s sleek small format to the ease of use.  This product has performed remarkably well, it’s built to last, and can be used in a variety of situations.  I continue to use it in a lot of my videos and would have no problem recommending it to anyone.

Honorable Mention:
Shokz OpenRun Mini


Traily Award for my favorite video (not based on views or likes):

DIY YouTube Studio Setup

In this video I go over my studio setup, showing how I use a combination of household items and pro-summer levels of gear, to produce high quality content for under $200. We also discuss some helpful tips I’ve learned from being in the industry for over 20 years.

Working with my father and taking several days to compile it’s a video I am really proud of, and I hope will help content creators get started in the future.

Honorable Mention:
Athletic tank tops from New Balance.
