Episode #1 - STUND in Nelson, B.C.
The crew spends some time shredding around on the local trails in Nelson, then we head over to Garett's backyard for some serious big jump lines, and finish off with an old trail from the Drop In times that has been re-vamped by Kinrade. It's a way of life in Nelson - have fun, ride bikes with friends, and do it again the next day. Nelson is home to Kinrade, Buehler, and Sorge, and they all wanted to show off their little piece of heaven to the rest of the world. It's impossible to showcase just how rad the place is in just one episode, but it will have to do for now. Enjoy!
Episode #2 - STUND in Williams Lake
From Nelson, the STUND crew packs up and heads North to Williams Lake (aka The Puddle
) for some of the most bad ass riding you may ever see. The hometown of James Doerfling, and notorious for big mountain ski style lines, this was the perfect place to set out on our mission. We rented a heli, flew it into the back country and pointed our bikes down some serious terrain. No shovels, no scoping and no clue on how it was going to go. This was a first for us, possibly for anyone, our journey into the unknown. As per usual, some of us got a little greedy. We also found some really fun singletrack through the mossy forests of the Cariboo Interior. We slung up some cable cams and had a lot of fun playing in the dirt. It was some the greenest and "loamiest" dirt that we've ever had the pleasure of sinking our tires into. This one is all about discovery, greed, loss, and payback. Glad you're with us Romo, that was one crazy ride, buddy!
Episode #3 - STUND in Sechelt
From Williams Lake we traveled over to beautiful Sechelt for Doerfling, Buehler and Romaniuk to trade in the dry, sandy slopes of their Interior BC home for some tacky, loamy and moss covered singletrack of the coast. Local filmmaker Bjorn Enga, from the legendary Kranked series, steps in with his RedCam cable system for some ultra crispy shots, Linden and Holly Feniuk guide us around and show us what's up in their backyard, and Romo embarks on a personal quest to find some famous pacific coast fish to throw on the BBQ. You'd think it wouldn't be that hard!
Episode #4 - Big Bikes in Big Mountains
takes us from the Sunshine Coast to the alpine ridges and slopes of the Purcell Mountains for some true freeriding! Panorama Mountain Resort hooked us up for a few days while we shredded the mountain and found some super fast alpine single track. Once we had our fill we went on a search for some serious big mountain lines deep into valleys of the Purcell range. Local legend and Drop In season 1 star Byron Grey joined us for a day of shredding in his back yard and kept us laughing the whole time. It's a big mountain playground out there, just the way we like it - spending some quality time on big bikes and doing some real freeriding. No trails, limitless options, ride how you want to ride.
Episode #5 - Sending it the 'Loops!
The riders in the STUND crew are considered to be some of the best freeriders in the world and very few people can saddle up and send it like they can. Watch as they push the sport further and higher! We set out to take our mountain bikes to their full potential. To utilize all the technology and design. Years of progression from riders and the companies that have supported them have pushed the sport to this. These bikes truly are mountain warriors. We are the gladiators laying stake to what is ours! Freeride. In giving back to the place that has given us so much, we would like to thanks Kamloops and its riders by giving them a new trail! LP trail is for you, Enjoy!
