Here’s a quick video I did for Banshee Bikes showing their VF4B (virtual floating four bar) suspension system in action. It’s meant to demonstrate the suspension performance in a variety of conditions, hence the climbing, descending, jumping, and just plain romping the rough stuff! Shot with a GoPro Hero HD and Manfrotto magic arm. Legend MKII footage thanks to Lorien at Sooke Mtn Cycle.
And a few screengrabs:

These photos have been languishing on my hard drive since early January, so I thought I’d post them up. I rarely use a remote flash these days, and more rarely shoot dirt jumps, and even more rarely bring a ladder out, but here are a few shots that I liked.

Living and playing outdoors on Vancouver Island during the winter months means dealing with one thing more than anything else, rain. The winter’s grip transforms the terrain into something familiar, yet unpredictable. Rock faces glisten and dare you to descend them as green growth slowly erases the tracks of former tires. Corners you would carve in dry conditions appear solid, but yield unexpectedly as rubber knobs slice though muddy layers. You navigate off camber sections knowing there’s an even chance you’ll cruise through, or be tossed recklessly into the undergrowth. Wet feet, soaked gloves, squealing brakes, and mud encrusted eyes becomes strangely…tolerable. It’s never bothered me. I always think about how, soon enough, the seemingly endless overcast and damp days give way to renewed growth, sunshine, and dusty trails. Then paradoxically we’re left wishing for a good rain ride.

We’ve been having spring-like weather all over B.C. for the past few weeks and it feels like the season is getting an early start. So there is no real need to look back on last summer and dream of sunny rides gone by. Most of the photos your going to see in this post were shot in a rain storm anyway. But do you ever see photos of yourself that take you back to a moment with so much intensity that you can almost feel the raindrops hitting your skin, hear the puddles splashing under your tires and smell the sage brush soaking in the rain?

As a loaded up my gear that morning, mind and body still blurry from the night before, the last thing I read was the forecast: Periods of rain with a chance of fog patches. Could it be? Aaron LaRocque and I refer to fog, the dense kind that rolls in from the coast, penetrates the forest canopy, floods onto singletrack, and fills your lens with a bright diffused sky, as the Unicorn. This apparition of the wilderness lures you to seek it out, checking web cams, plotting scenarios where you might capture it, but it seemingly appears when you least expect it. I hastily jammed a camera body, fisheye, and tripod into my bag – just in case. (continue reading…)

Yeah!!! Got a chance to time being in Kamloops the weekend Sunpeaks opened to snowboard some dry powder with my girl Sarah! It was shin deep all over the mountain and there were no liftlines. Awesome slashalicious fun! Did a buncha Sunburst quad blasts and a few upper mtn Crystal chairs. Ran into some old speed skiing buddies and hammered some Sacred Line runs…1000 feet of medium steep, blown in open huge face. Milked turns with highspeed straightlines out the bottom like a 1000 foot wave. Went in for lunch and got photographed carving a turn up to the lodge and found myself on the front page of the Kamloops Daily News! ha ha I love the camera, and the camera loves me! ha ha
Had a great time, ran into the funky locals, and felt the leg burn of ripping a big mountain. The conditions are perfect already this season. Can’t wait to go back…oh wait, I’m going this weekend! More powder please, cause I’ve got Mad Pow Disease!
