We all have our reasons why we ride, but it is the riding that brings us together and creates a real bond. Our very good friend and fellow rider Nick Moore has been diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease that is causing him to go blind. Nick has insurance, but because this procedure is not yet approved by the FDA, Nick’s insurance will not cover it. As we are all part of the same MTB community we want to help Nick raise the money to get this surgury done. RaceFace , along with a bunch of other concerned MTB companies have donated products for an Ebay auction, that is going on right now. The money raised will go to help Nick pay for this costly procedure. They are also selling some special t-shirts to help the cause as well. Any money raised over the amount needed for the surgury will go to start a foundation to help others facing the struggle that Nick is facing now. I challange all my fellow riders to support one of our own. Support Nick and lets show him that he is not alone in his fight.

Technology has done some amazing things for biking, and one of the coolest is the ability for us to now film and watch what the rider sees with his/her own eyes.
This is an edit dedicated to all the fun that we have with our friends out on the trails!
It’s unmistakable that the best thing about mountain biking is shredding with friends, and the best thing about having these mini HD cameras is being able to record it with no effort, watch it later with a few beers, and share it with the rest of the world. Here’s an edit that Tamas Forde and I put together from footage of myself out shredding with my friends through out this past summer.

Here’s a bunch of links to the Whistler Bike Park trails that I filmed for Ken over at Camp of Champions. It was a big day of riding, lots of laps! In fact, Tippie and I set a record for the most trails shot in one day! Check out a few or all of the GoPro movies here…

Inspired by whip videos from The Coastal Crew and Ian Morrison, I really wanted to make one of my own. Whips are a neat move. Every rider has their individual style and no two whips look alike. I wanted to make mine fast paced and fast cut. Matty Miles was the man for the job. We spent two evenings filming whips on the same two jumps and then compressed it all into one 40 second edit. Usually my interest would fade filming the same thing for two days but whips just never get old…

Scott is a young filmmaker and we recently got together for a quick shoot while the light was pleasant in Victoria.

Sometimes I think it’s killing me. But more often I like to think I’m killing it. Plans change as fast as the weather. One minute its raining and the next its shining. In either case its all good. It’s hard to keep a balance between working, riding, and riding to promote myself. And it keeps getting harder. Especially since there are no definitive lines between the three. Working means not riding, but still promoting. Riding means riding, working and promoting. Promoting means working and riding. Working in a bike store, as a bike coach and being a rider certainly keeps me busy. It seems that I never have a full day off without some sort of project I need to work on. But then again I don’t have an office or a suit, so perhaps I have a lot of days off? I’m not complaining by any means. I’m extremely grateful to have a life filled with passion and aim. I’m also grateful for the opportunity to work on media projects with Sun Peaks Resort and Lone Wolf Productions. The kind of projects that help me fill in those definitive lines and remember how much I love doing what I do. Killing it.

The Camp of Champions with help from GoPro has spent the last month filming every trail in The Whistler Bike Park in HD from two angles. The footage was then synced and tagged with a GPS point. Set up in a split screen format, you can ride with / follow COC coaches Alan Hepburn, Xavier Raventos, Brett Tippie and friends Andrew Baker, Kyle McDonald and others through the Whistler Bike Park. See the lines the pros take. Be safer by knowing what to expect. Learn new lines and get a better idea of what a trail looks like, use it to get rid of your intimidation of a certain trail, or just wish you were riding Whistler with us. (continue reading…)

I was just sifting through Garett Buehler’s footage when I decided to take a break and check out pinkbike.com, and guess what I saw. VOD for Lone Wolf Production…not bad for our first section. Stay tuned for more to come very soon.

Alan is over on the island right now and we went out to do some shooting. Mike Zinger always gets something that gets me stoked.
Here is a photo from the shoot.
