Weston Peick isn't afraid of putting in an effort. For a while the California native did everything on his own, chasing Supercross success as an independent racer against the well-equipped factory stars. The years of hard work and determination paid off in 2015, when he was welcomed to top tier AutoTrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha team and rose to the next level.
Getting to this point left little time for leisure, but Peick knows how make the most of his free time. In this episode we join Weston and two of his close friends, Trevor Dean and Chris See, as they pack a rig full of gear and head for the Eastern Sierras to answer the "Can You Play" rally cry. The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is the perfect vehicle for the adventure, as it traversed every obstacle and makes for experience one wouldn't have along the main road. From track to trail, lush woods to barren desert, they see it all along the way.
The journey begins at the base of the hills, as the guys take the Tacoma to the head of the mountain bike trail and shred every inch of single track in sight. From there, it's off to the sand for moto freeride session in the dunes and camping under the clear skies.
Later the crew runs into fellow Toyota Athlete Drew Bezanson at the motocross track. What breaks out is far from the norm, as they dice in the dirt and turn the Tacoma into another obstacle. The day caps off with the most unusual start to a moto we can remember: Weston, Drew, and the crew challenge each other who's fastest off the line with a pit row team challenge.
