Every summer thereafter he would take a trip with the company The Biking Expedition and rode trails in Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Vermont and New Hampshire. At 15, he managed to break his Collar Bone and both his Wrists on a Gary Fisher Level Betty; Deer Valley Utah had gotten the better of him that trip. Though the crash left him feeling bitter, he had nothing else to read in his hospital bed besides Cycling magazines. This kept his hunger and knowledge for the sport strong. That same summer Miles’ favorite rider Myles Rockwell had a horrific knee injury during a downhill race. The following year Rockwell won the Tissot World Cup in Men’s DH. This gave Miles even more inspiration to keep swinging his leg over the bike. Eventually he was old enough to lead the “The Biking Expedition” tours and share his knowledge with young riders.
