For those of you who know anything about sledding, Brett Turcotte will not be a foreign name. Brett has been a figure head in the sport for many years, and has some impressive titles to show for it such as multiple movie segments, being a 5 time X Games competitor, an X Games silver medalist, and winning the Canadian snow cross championship. On top of all this Brett is also a multi sport athlete, and is a very capable motocross rider, as well as mountain biker.

Whether it s in the forest or on the track Brett sure does like his dirt.

With so many sports and responsibilities it can be hard to attend to all of them. When Lone Wolf Productions first contacted Brett about shooting he had not been on a mountain bike in over a year. However, we knew that his athletic ability would shine through and with a considerable amount of freedom and faith given to us by Giro we decided to make a section that would take us through his 2013 comeback season.

Shooting wide this time with the same styled out result.

Brett had always ridden a hard tail and was primarily a dirt jump rider. I suppose it should have been no surprise that when I lent out my downhill bike to Brett he would obviously be very comfortable on it. His experience on big machines with lots of travel made throwing a downhill bike around very easy, and within one day he was drifting corners and charging steep lines like he had been riding downhill bikes for years. It was clear that Brett's season was about to take an unexpected turn.

Brett quickly sought out a full suspension bike and in the mean time borrowed any bike he could get his hands on. His focus on dirt jumps quickly faded as he began to hone his skills on a downhill bike. By the end of the season it was clear that Brett's style had evolved to create a more well rounded rider. For Brett and us at Lone Wolf Productions it was an amazing season and a great adventure. We left Brett at the end of his mountain bike season and the beginning of his sled season, but we hope to see more of Brett in 2014, keep it pinned!

Getting loosened up for his interview.

 This guy is so rad! His segments in the sledding movies are nuts. It must be relaxing to jump a mtb three or four dozen feet after launching a sled for two hundred feet plus...tricked out. ha ha Go Brett Turcotte!!!

 Where is he riding around 2:54? Those trails look like a ton of fun
  • + 4
 Must be some thing in the name Razz

 Revelstoke trails
  • + 1
 Including the wood drop with the yvr sign beside it? That seemed like a pretty wide jump trail, looked like resort riding?

 Thanks Matt for lending out your DH bike!

 @VPS13 I think it the split between Pro Star and Rock Star at Silver Star
  • - 2
 It's a trail in Revelstoke built by the whistler trail crew. I think its called hotdog hallway. Very fun.
  • + 9
 Hot dog hallway in Revelstoke but it was actually built by the local RCA with help from volunteers in the community and massive help from Rick in Nelson
  • + 1
 That is revelstoke sir
  • + 2
 @ VPS13 - The section from 2:30-ish to 2:50-ish is indeed Silver Star. Come and git it!
  • + 1
 Wicked film, shame the shit tune reminds me more of the local goons walking around with it playing on loudspeaker while getting smashed on their dads 1664
  • + 1
 YEAH TURKEY!!! Getin it!. Would of liked to have seen more snowmobiling because I to am a snowmobiler but great video @Lone Wolf Productions.
  • + 1
 Yeah from the little sledding footage I've watched this guy is pretty nuts

 From the captions and his talking at the start I was expecting a pony vid of another 'x-treme' athlete wobbling down some trails dressed head to foot in Monster clobber doing nothing of any note. Then he busts out a flip and a 360 and...well yeah...clearly that's not him.
  • + 7
 I am the only one wondering how many freeride bikes the guy owns ? Big Grin

Shredder video though !
  • + 3
 yea I think I counted at least 3 big bikes
  • + 8
 You both clearly did not read the writeup, he borrowed those bikes as he did not have one
  • + 2
 oops my bad ! The fact that he borrowed the bikes make him an even harder shedder !!
  • + 2
 @ jtm maybe you didn't listen to him talking in the intro. He said he had a hardtail (his dirtjump bike) and he borrowed a big bike (as in one bike) at the start of the season, then got his own.
  • + 2
 Great vid, awesome riding. It's nice to see all those supermans and no foot can cans on big bike again. I think you don't see them nowadays as often on dh bikes as it used to be in the old movies, like new world disorder and other older stuff.
  • + 2
 everyone has a friend thats better than them at everything! once you finally find something your good at you never tell "that" friend about it. Brett u suck, stop making your friends look bad :>Wink

 Sick talent, smooth but powerful style, and a big bag of tricks..... Clearly the next Rampage Wildcard invite.
  • + 1
 So he started with supermens on a hardtail and ended the season doing supermens on a full suspension bike...thats progress....well....just jealousy talking...damn...this Brett can shred
  • + 3
 Guy reminds me of Shaun Palmer, but with less attitude. Capable of any extreme sport probably. Ba%&*rd!
  • + 3
 Well..... If he gets tired of sleds, I guess he has a career in the freeride world.... Jesus
  • + 3
 in spring he was damn good, then he progressed and got even gnarlier. you can see that moto background!
  • + 4
 Way too short Frown . He kills it so hard on everything!
  • + 1
 If you think this riding was rad...do yourself a favour and check out some of his segments in sled necks. This guy is an animal on a sled! (pretty rad on two wheels too!)
  • + 2
 Fantastic video! I like the music too. Does anybody have an idea what is this song, please?
  • + 2
 (B)Rick Schneider and the Revvy cycling club built that trail. Not a Whistler crew.
  • + 2
 if it's possible to have liftstyle envy...then I have it...
  • + 1
 Damn he shreds. He didn't exactly start out terrible and he definitely got better.
  • + 1

  • + 1

 From a hardtail at the beginning of the season.... To that? f*ck me.

  • + 3
 Unpossible! Chuck Norris hasn't aged a day in his life.
  • + 2
 At this rate he should do rampage next year.
