Now that Crankworx is over, we are back to a normal level of work here at Chromag...if you could ever call Whistler life ‘normal’. Jinya wanted to put together a new edit that focused on some of the riding we do throughout the valley outside of the bike park, so naturally, the hardtail is the perfect tool to get there.
Jinya’s been with us each summer for 4 years now. You’ve seen some of his self-filmed, self-edited footage, but for this shoot, it's very much ‘new recruit and old guard’ as he hooks up with Dan Skogland and Kevin Phelps.
Skogland lives in Pemberton and after several years of paying dues on the BC cup downhill circuit he’s settled down to a quiet life of trail building, backyard ripping, and building audio systems, you want some bass, he’s a boss.
Footage of Kevin Phelps is rare indeed. He’s not known in the commercial world of mountain bike media but it’s safe to say he is highly respected by all who have spent time with him on the trail. If you’ve ever wondered what is possible on a hardtail, Phelps is the guy who proves the answer is ‘a lot’.www.chromagbikes.comwww.virtumedia.ca
