Bas Van Steenbergen seems to be a local rider the world over. When he travels to races and events across the globe he always makes time to get to know the local spots, the people and with his natural style, he's instantly at home on the trails.
This was exactly the case both before and after this year's Crankworx in Rotorura, New Zealand. Bas spent a few weeks in Queenstown hanging out with friends, training, riding, tindering, and making the most of the second summer before heading to Crankworx. Then, after the event in Rotorua riding some of the trails that suit him best, reveling in the loose berms and big jumps while mixing it up on the technical sections with his unique and unmistakable style.
