Carter Kransy and I teamed up to film some prime spring conditions on Vancouver Island. After multiple days of clearing the trail from the winter debris with the DAWG House crew, and squeezing in shooting days between classes at UVIC, the Green Room was born. Carter used this opportunity to prepare for his upcoming season in the Enduro World Series.

 That dirt looks like you could pull it back like a soft blanket and sleep under it

 Visiting Victoria area. Where should I ride? Closest I've ridden in the past is Cumberland, which was fun. Eying Harbourview on Trailforks, is it solid?

 All the riding areas are good, you just need to find the right trails. Best bet is to go into the LBS and chat them up.

 Its good black tech/flow. You may or may not feel the flow your first time down.

 Areas close to Victoria, Hartland about 20 mins from Downtown, some solid trails in Sooke, about 30 40 mins up the west coast. Maple Mountain for XC Enduro about an hour from Vic, and Prevost for DH that you can shuttle, this is where Steve Smith trained also about an hour away. Nanaimo for some great technical downhill and xc, plus The Steve Smith Bike Park, about and hour and a half from Vic.

 Oh yes and of course Mt Tzouhalem in Duncan, which I think is where this was filmed, maybe?

 Don't get me wrong, the edit was good.... But, the credit for clearing this trail and the hard work that was put into the task should be given to a few others.
