No matter how awesome the riding in Whistler and Pemberton is, it's gone once the snow hits. Spending copious amounts of time with Steve this summer I really noticed a few weak spots in his training program, so Mikey and I headed to Vancouver Island to guide him to further World Cup wins. Checking out the forecast before we were headed out, it looked to be the rainiest 4 days in recent memory. So I grabbed a 15 pack of Lucky and headed to the Island to check out the Island life. Growing up in Whistler, I've been exposed to sick trails, rowdyism, bonfires, chainsaws, fireworks and numerous other exciting activities, but nothing would prepare me for the Island.

Waking up to the sound of pouring rain on the roof is not the greatest motivator to roll out of your warm, dry bed, but with Mikey at the helm there is no slacking on the 6 am start time. After a half an hour of hydroplaning down the Island Highway we arrived at Mount Provost. The term wet does not describe the next 4 days of shooting and the thought of building an ark crossed my mind more than once during our days out there on the mountain.

In the end it was a memorable trip to Vancouver Island; the trails were filled with hero dirt for miles and the locals showed us their amazing bowling skills. Dreams were crushed, cops were called, urinals were broken and I can't wait to get back there. I am sure Steve's neighbors are not looking forward to my return.

 one of the few videos ive seen where the super slow mo actually contributes rather then detracts. that shot at the end where you can see ian try and decide whether to take his foot off is so cool!!

 bar hump of the year at 1:52

 I love you steviieee! Razz #1fan

 super slow mo is only good if its actually shot with a 10,000 dollar camera, what erks ppl about it is that people do it in shitty quality
  • + 14
 what erks me about slow motion whether it's great quality or not is that the best thing about dh riding is the speed, putting everything in slow motion doesn't do justice to how fast the riders are. I agree with g-off though , this video did it right.

 STEEZE SMITTH!

 I'm i wrong or yan's ball was saying hello in the opening scene?

 Great riding, and yes the slomo is fine here. In most videos it is way overused to the point of being masturbatory. I want to see more real time footy.
  • - 22
 I like vids on Pinkbike for the awesome riding, not to see some dude's sack when he's riding an exercise bike. Just sayin'.
  • + 8
 g-off did you notice in the earlier shots where Stevie took his foot off but Ian didn't? That's some confidence in your bike handling skills, haha.
  • + 8
 That shot at 2:45... Smith jumps over the moving cameraman! Freakin awesome vid.

 Their tires are in the air more than on the ground!

 broken lever spotted at the end of the video on one of the bikes in the back of the truck!

 It wasn't Ian who take his foot out of pedals... it was Stevie!!! In the video Steve is wearing red and white and Ian is wearing black and white. Just for the record.

 awesome vid and awesome camera angles. 1:35 the camera guy though "f*ck, that's gonna hurt.."^^

 dude...he did that dead lift using nothing but his back...thats how you get injured before even getting on the bike....
  • + 3
 maybe he is doing straight leg deadlifts to train his hamstrings, nothing wrong with them as long as you keep you back straight during the lift!
  • + 0
 silly canadians
  • + 2
 how come Ian doesn't race world cups? he's so pinned!
  • + 2
 Yup straight leg dead lifts if done properly will destroy ur hamstrings! in a good way tho ! If u have proper strength in ur hips which i'm sure Steve dose it will not put any pressure on ur back and as joey says as long as u keep it straight its ur hips and hams that take all the load!

 That Huck at 1:52 is huge the video doesn't do the justice at all.

 great to see some damp tecchie action, not just smooth manicured tracks with huge dry jumps and moto whips. As cool as they are, they get a bit boring to watch. Deadly Vid!

 I would be crashing so hard trying to follow Steve down a trail like that. Respect to Ian for keeping Steve in sight.

 I love watching these guys ride. Awesome to see them having so much fun on their bikes and getting loose with it. Hoping for big things from Stevie this race season! Man these guys shred.

 Best frontpage video in a long time. Sick riding, dirt to drool over, sexy bikes, quirky humor, well-timed slow mo...what more could you ask for? (Hey Stevie--nice squat & deadlift! Glad to see off-season training is going well...kill it next season!)
[Reply]
  • + 4
 Go Ian! he's what makes that video! that work out scene at the beginning, haha, priceless! Forget the serious business, just get out there on your bike and enjoy riding! haha good flick!
[Reply]
  • + 3
 I love how even the pros still have fun riding theyre bikes! thats partly why stevie is my favorite rider cause he has such a good mindset! plus hes just a super sick rider and hes from canada! oh and VOD like tomorow id say!

 i have to do it... VOD

 I do not envy Ian for this shoot. "Hey Ian, follow this World Cup Downhiller down this gnarly wet trail at mach speed, and make sure you are right on his wheel so that we can get some good shots."

Wow, you can see how much more comfortable Smith is at speed than Ian. Awesome riding and sick footage

 sick tacoma drifting is a bonus....
[Reply]

 Face it. Stevie Smith is one of the few fastest on the planet. Just to stay in the same frame as him isn't easy. For anyone. Awesome video. Props to Mike Goldstein for a great VOD! Love it.

 That was one of the best videos I've seen hands down. Just something about the way its been shot makes it look so good.
[Reply]

 Stevie Smith could become the new Sam Hill if he keeps up being so cool Smile
  • + 1
 he's in the right way for that! the end of the video where he crashes dosen't remind you of sam's crash in 2008 at the Val di Sole worlds! Razz Steviieeee for the win!

 Using the word "Wholly" instead of "Holy" indicates the the video was wholly (i.e. entirely, in whole, totally) shit.

 Anyone notice steve had no black box forks?
  • - 1
 Also looks like he isn't on a carbon wilson, unless he personally chose that paint scheme. Although I've seen him riding his Team Canada bike several times...
  • + 1
 There was a picture of danny hart's bike at roostDh a few days ago and he didn't have the blackbox ones either.

Coincidence?
  • + 5
 That or he wanted to keep his team bike in good condition haha.
  • + 1
 Pretty sure they take blackbox stuff back in the off season to see how it stood up to the last seasons abuse and tinker with it. Then they give it back before the start of the next season.

 Steve is on a carbon bike. He is on a replica of his 2012 race bike. Black with yellow decals.

 No disrespect toward Ian. But this vid shows the difference between a world cup racer and park rat. Ian's got skills for sure but man Stevie's skills combined with his strength. Forget about it!
