Happy New Year's eve

I really don't care about watching this dude ride. I know he's fast and rides technical things, I just don't care to watch. But this edit is pretty decent cinematography and the scenery is nice so thats it.

Imba visit 2013

Dale, John, X, and Jordan from SORCE bike club

Hey we never posted on this really cool thing tht happened in 2013: Big thanks to Imba Canada and AJ and Rachael

This past weekend, we had the pleasure to visit Surrey, BC, where the Surrey Off-Road Cycling Enthusiasts (SORCE), call home. Before arriving, we wondered what this large, but relatively flat city situated south-east of Vancouver would have to offer. Most input we received from others (upon mentioning our next visit) was that Surrey had lots of farmland, but had little to offer in the way of riding.
Boy, were they wrong. What Surrey has is a group of hard working club members and progressive city officials that understands the benefits of cycling and urban bike parks. Get these two things together and you have the recipe for bike park awesomeness!
Surrey, population 468,000, has four progressive bike parks around the city with many options for dirt jumps, pump tracks, and urban singletrack. We had the pleasure of visiting two of the four parks during our time in the city, Invergarry and South Surrey, which were both filled with riders young and old.
Our afternoon field session took place on South Surrey's trail network, working with a group of SORCE volunteers to rejuvenate existing singletrack into a new, progressive flow trail. It was incredible to see such a great urban cycling facility alongside other city infrastructure like tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and soccer pitches.
A huge thanks to SORCE for planning such a great visit, to Norco for supplying swag and prizes to volunteers, and also to Beast & Brine (@beastandbrine) for providing great lunches to feed our hungry workers!

Merry Christmas

I'm getting ready to stuff my face with turkey and stuffing and cranberries but I couldn't resist checking out some new riding vids. Boy am I glad I did. because holy shit, Adam Brayton rides those tight corners like a madman. Read the p.s. at the bottom of the quote>>
Alex Rankin is regarded by many as the godfather of all godfather's when it comes to MTB films. Rankin's ability to capture some of the wildest racing footage in the Earthed and Sprung films set the benchmark for all MTB films that followed. 
Two of Hope Technology's riders were luckily chosen by Alex back in the day to feature in the Earthed films. Hope Factory team rider, Adam Brayton aka Gas2Flat aka Keswick Kestrel aka Eskiboy, got wild and loose in Earthed 5 - The Law of Fives. 
Hope's Belgium DH/freerider, Nico Vink had an earlier Earthed début in Earthed 3 riding flat out on the Sprint Avalanche track in Oz en Oisans.
Both riders are fast loose and love a good huck, but have two of the most contrasting riding styles around. Brayton - flat out, on-the-edge racer and Vink with his flowy and super smooth style. Who better to bring them both together than the guy they both credit with kick-starting their media careers, the godfather himself, Alex Rankin. 
After putting in a few weeks of day and night shifts digging tracks around the Lake District, Adam invited Nico and Alex to spend a few days filming and hucking. Alex hasn't failed to deliver, capturing the guys riding on the edge and pulling off some pretty big jumps along the way. 
This "...Ultimate Hucker Sender" edit by Alex has a distinctively "Earthed" and raw edge to it - no fancy gadgets or slo-mo's - just flat out loose riding.
"It was really good to catch up with Nico and Adam for this project, we laughed a lot and got lucky with the UK winter weather, but the speed of Adam on his local tracks was insane and had us all with jaws dropped." - Alex Rankin
P.S. Nico rides all the tracks blind - not bad ey?!

The Jungle exists somewheres in the forests of Washington state. It looks like a dope spot and its cool to see when edits pop up showing the building there. I also like how mountain bikes and bmxs get along there. Check out this old edit of the spot...

Jordan and Jon stopped by Invergarry yesterday and un-buried the snowed in pump track to get some laps in before spring. Ha who am I kidding, snow melts in 3 days here. Remember the last time we dug out a pump track just to ride mid winter?

Boner Island

I went to Bowen Island this year, sadly it poured rain the entire time I was there. I also didnt see any of these trails at all...

With winter conditions like this, who would ever miss summer? Jay Boysen shreds up the trails of Bowen Island, BC.An "Arctic Outflow Warning" was recently issued for coastal British Columbia. Which coincidentally left sunny skies over Howe Sound for a few days, giving ample opportunity to catch the ferry to Bowen Island and shoot some dry and dusty trails.
This is not the first time I've met Jay at the ferry and proceeded to spend a day in the woods, but I had not experienced Bowen in such frigid conditions. Jay took us to some new zones he had spent time building over the last year. The hard work he puts into the trails he builds shows, and being an avid cyclist myself it was hard standing on the sidelines of the action. At least I had long time friend and photographer Keegan Pearson along for the chilly day ahead.

Remy Metailler

Jordan beamed this one over. The crazyness at 0:58-1:03 was the reason to send it over. Personally I don't see what the big deal is... I do that every time I'm at Whistler. Bout time we have a little more hip hop in edits.
Remy tears the Whistler bike park apart. A big thanks goes out to Garbanzo Bike and Bean for their support throughout the season.

Between the Trees

Squamish offers a varied array of trails. From manicured groomer-esque Half and Full Nelson trails, to old school rooty, rocky, primarily fall line trails such as Powersmart. This is what makes the town such a renowned area for mountain biking. As with most trails in BC, the logging industry has created roads through the pristine forests to facilitate the cutting and removal of trees. This in turn created access for mountain bikers to explore the terrain and create trails through tireless hours of hard work. The down side to the access created by the original logging is, with the roads and infrastructure already in place, the area is also a perfect place to re-harvest. Throughout the past two seasons Powersmart and the lower Section Skookum are sprouting colorful patches of flagging tape marking cut boundaries, future skidder roads, and log landing areas. In time, this area will be re-forested and the trails will be, at least temporarily, lost. In recent years, local logging has done an amazing job working with SORCA (the Squamish Off-Road Cycling Association) and trail users to minimize the impact on trails and to fund the re-construction of trails. This trail evolution cycle has become quite common throughout BC, it can cause anger, frustration, controversy, and is a great topic for debate. Logging helped create the original trail, reforestation will alter the original trail forever.
For our edit this fall we really wanted to capture the look and feel of the Powersmart and Skookum trails in their current state: fast, rooty, rocky, technical. This trail has not received any significant maintenance in the past few years as logging has been expected for some time. The current state of this trail is far from how it began its life, and farther from what it may become once the surrounding trees are removed.
This season we also spent many rainy evenings working on a small playground of fresh take offs and landings between patches of lush West Coast foliage. Big jumps though the ferns was the goal while keeping impact on the living forest to a minimum. This new playground, although not physically linked to Powersmart/Skookum, was the final stop for our edit.

Martyn Ashton

Martyn Ashton blew everybody's mind (and a few fuses in the Youtube servers) with his Road Bike Party edit. Since then, he has suffered asignificant spinal cord injury while performing on his "Animal WD40 Action Sports Tour", but with a lot of the footage already in the box and a little help from his friends Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill, he has been able to complete Road Bike Party 2.
Martyn, you are a true inspiration and we wish you the very best as you continue down the road of rehab.

Kristjan Vreček

This video has to be one of my years' favorites. Cool helicopter shots too! Slovenia Full clip of Kristjan Vrecek's "Vrǝckolandia" trail. Looks like a whole lot of fun - rock on brother! Filmed and edited: msix.si

The corporate beast that is Specialized bicycles may be filled with complete A-holes; but Matt Hunter is not one of them. He rides a new Enduro in Chile and is not a dink. The same cannot be said for the legal team/owners. That said, they do make good bikes bikes.

Latimer Lake Strava

Jordan, Bryson(taking the photo) and I rode at Latimer Lake Park on Saturday.  The weather was about as rainy as it gets here on the coast of BC. We did a little Srava-ing while we were there on the SORCE club ride. Just goes to show you how much riding there is still to be had at a former Surrey mountain bike destination. We look forward to riding there more. We also intend to advocate for this spot to be reinvigorated. More on that as it develops. http://app.strava.com/activities/97981241


Episode 11 is pretty good. Oh dry trails.....

Racing is over now, you may think Jérôme wish to do something else. No way, fall is probably the best time of the year to enjoy some fun ride with his mate on trails in perfect conditions.
La saison des courses est finie, on pourrait croire que Jérôme aurait envie de faire autre chose. Hors de question, L'automne est probablement la meilleure période pour rouler aves ses amis sur des sentiers en parfaite conditions.
