Brett is a long time resident of the Simcoe County region (Ontario) and has been competitively riding for nearly 7 years now. Growing up in Ontario, mountain biking is not the biggest or most sought out sport. Brett knew early he would have to create his own training grounds. Living on a sizeable piece of land and with the resources to build, he has created a slopestyle riders dream in his backyard. Consisting of 20+ ft. high platforms and massive kickers Brett has put blood sweat and tears into his compound and it shows.

Featured on 6 hours with Brett Rheeder you can have a good look at what Brett has done with the space provided. Brett’s ever-growing compound stands tall in his yard and is the perfect training grounds for his riding style.

Mechanical Eye Media followed Brett for three days through his off-season routine. Living within an hour of Joyride 150 indoor bike park Brett always has a warm dry place to ride. Currently working at a bike shop in Newmarket Ontario, Brett spends nearly all his free time throughout the winter at Joyride 150, learning new tricks and staying fluent on his bike all throughout the winter. With plans to ride in many FMB tour stops Brett’s looking to make his way up the ranks, with the long term goal to reach the podium.

The-GC-Crew had a great 2011 season and would like to thank everyone who made it possible. Being starving students trying to make our way through the photography program was the first step, but we are ecstatic about graduating this year and shooting even more. Coming out of school we are going to be starting fresh, The-GC-Crew was just the beginning and now we are going to be making the leap into the media world. We will cease operation as “The GC Crew” and begin our new chapter as “Mechanical Eye Media”. We contacted a close friend named Matt Boadway, currently going though a graphic design program. He is a passionate rider himself and is great at what he does. We were lucky to work with him on making a logo that fit perfectly for what we had imagined. Feel free to contact Matt at the address below, if you are looking for a new logo or a change in style. mboadw0330@students.pcci.edu

 @Danno I actually like MacDuff's and Besanzon's Joyride clips better, Drew's latest one was out of this planet (bmx tho). Still enjoyed this one too Smile

 @kanioni, we wanted to give the viewers a different vibe for this joyride edit, taking a freeride type filming style with lots of dolly shots, tight crops and plenty of panning to get out of the handheld/steadicam look everyone does in joyride. Nothing against the MacDuff or Besanzon edits, they're amazing, we just wanted to have a different look. Glad you enjoyed this edit tho! cheers

 I definitely see you're point and the effort you have put into this clearly paid off, but I guess I'm just a fan of very tech riding. All I can say is keep up the good work!

 we can appreciate your love for tech riding, its exciting watch. Brett is a slope rider, he's been spending tons of time in the park to master this type of riding. Keep an eye out for edits of him this summer!
