Video: Adam Williams - Escaping Summer
Sep 1, 2012
'Escaping Summer' might seem like an odd title for a video filmed in August, but the 'Summer' in the UK has been a washout, with sun and dry trails being a rarity.
The solution to this for Adam Williams was a short flight over to Barcelona, Spain where the temperature would rarely go below 30 degrees celcius. We arrived with the intention of shooting for the majority of the time we were there, but the reality was that it was way too hot to ride in the day so we were left with the evenings to film. We'd seen videos from La Poma bikepark so we got in contact with Joan Rueda, a local Rose Bikes' rider who acted as our guide, showing us the way to the jumps and even when to get the train without needing to pay which was helpful.Photos by Jonny Ashelford, video edit by Sam Davies
