This is a special, two-part episode featuring some of the greatest racers in Jet Skiing.  The first half of the episode will be with the legend, Victor Sheldon.  The second half will be a conversation with another legend, Tera Laho, and newcomer Stevie Bascom.  They all share how they got started riding and racing, why they love the sport, and what they do to stay active in the offseason.  Between the three of them, they have collected 17 World Championships!

I started riding when I was 9 and fell in love with the sport right away.  I grew up idolizing people like Victor and Tera, watching their racing and getting their autographs.  It's been decades since then and the sport has changed and evolved in many ways, but riders like Stevie are showing us a renewed interest in the sport that I hope continues to grow.
