bigquotesA couple hours on the trail yielded the results that we wanted - enough to piece together a short edit. More than that though, it was a reminder of why Fall on the Island is so awesome.- Larock

This Fall has been one of the nicest in recent memory. It's been chillier than is standard for Southern Vancouver Island, but each morning when I get up, it's sunshine pouring down rather than rain. Dean Tennant and I decided it best to take advantage of the weather while we could and get out to the South Island's favourite shuttle zone, Mt. Prevost, to clock some footage. Dean was itching for some time on the bike after a broken collarbone at Worlds in Champery sidelined him.

Prevost's road construction meant a long "bottom to top" early morning hike. An hour of hiking had us at the top of the trail - an exhausting way to start an already difficult day of shooting, yet the perfect way to warm up on a brisk mid-November morning. One of the biggest challenges of a shoot this time of year is actual daylight hours. With only about six hours per day of workable light in the forest, depending on cloud cover, you quickly end up battling the fading sun. Sundown was sneaking up on us and we were still around mid mountain. The shoot would have to be cut short today. "Let's call it." A post-shoot stop at Wendy's would make for the perfect spot to refuel and look over the days spoils.

Another half-day was necessary to satisfy us. A casual shoot on familiar trails meant encounters with friends smashing downhill laps. High overcast and sprinkling rain combined with the previous week's sunshine made for perfect shooting conditions. We shot our way down the trail, picking out pieces that we liked. Fall colours in full effect were only made richer by the sprinkling of rain.

 Hot rider, talented filming, awe inspiring trails - really impressive production. The best portrayal of Prevost yet. DT was cleaving Cleavage, burning berms, and crushing the DH trail. Thanks and keep 'em coming.

 Nice video! The beat of the song works great with the video, but the actual song itself was personally distracting. I ended up trying to listen to what they were saying over watching the riding. Which is a shame because the riding was great!

 How do you go about getting the rights to use songs like these?
  • + 1
 It's for the internet/non profit
  • + 2
 they put the name of an online shop, so it's a sort of commercial i'm interested to know how they get the rights

 It's a horrible song. No talent, cant rap, cant mc ..they don't produce there own music. Like really you want hip hop go look at something like the living legends crew. The music in this song might have actually lowered your IQ.
