Video: Darker Days

Typically during this time of the year in Kelowna, I’m up at the ski hill pretending to ride Rampage lines and roost corners as if I was on my bike. Injecting myself with a sort of self-medicating mental distraction, by straight lining groomers trying to top 125km/hr and sending massive spread eagles over jumps under the chair. But luckily this year we’ve been able to ride all the way into December. Even though the trails here aren’t completely snowed in yet, the evening hours have been dwindling down to a minimum... which sparked an idea for a quick edit. Matt and I wanted to shoot an edit in a day, starting in the dark and ending in the dark. Which gave us roughly 8 hours of light. These are the darker days of the Canadian off season.

 Nice riding! BUT, as much as I love real music in a video, the song did not flow at all w/ the riding imo. Maybe I just don't like stp.

 Song is alright , but NOT for a bike video . Zero flow with this music - good music , but simply does not match well with riding . (as is the case with rock or metal for mtb videos). Very nice video otherwise.

 You sir are wrong. I came for the rock, and only for the rock, and was NOT dissappointed.
