Deep Woods Slalom with Bas van Steenbergen - Video

Jul 28, 2016
by Red Bull Bike  


Bas van Steenbergen is one of the world's best bike handlers, a Red Bull Rampage alumnus, and uses "slalom" riding to sharpen his ability to change direction — both vertically over jumps and horizontally between creative berms — with his newly-created "Dream Slalom" track in British Columbia's interior.


MENTIONS: @RedBullCanada / @Basvansteenbergen / @hmendel / @liammullany

 I mean he's still looks pretty rad in my books, just hard to take him seriously.

 Wish Hyper would actually release a real mountain bike. They seem to have pros riding for them off and on but no bikes ever make it to public availability. Hard to consider them a mountain bike brand when they don't sell any real bikes.. That said the bike shown looks pretty awesome and the video was amazing.

 huh? not. even. close.

 @stacykohut: not even close? They both have such a clean and precise handling, both so stylish even when riding straight lol. I would say they are on the same level of technique, but Semenuk has bigger bag of tricks.
  • + 3
 @raidenCZE: come on man, truth time here bro.................

semenuk has a way higher degree of difficulty in his tricks, and his style is again, another level higher than bas.

 The best cablecam work I have ever seen by quite a margin. Stitching so many cable shots together in that first sequence was genius.

 The nose manual always looks so stylish. No if I could figure out how to make mine look like his without a dropper post and a 400mm seat post on my rigid single speed in spandex Smile

 I wanna shake the trail builders hands. That is one rad trail!

 Damn, you'd really want to have that figured out, wouldn't want to launch where he was scrubbing/manualing, or vise versa. Really technical riding.
  • + 2
 Bas is steely as hell, but I really really want to see Semenuk ride this. Would suit him super well.

 What doesn't make this slalom?

 @adanac14: there is only 1 line instead of 2, no gates
  • + 6
 @probikegeek: Maybe you're thinking of dual slalom
  • + 0
 @adanac14: didn't know there was a difference?
  • + 4
 @probikegeek: Slalom is another way of saying a fairly smooth downhill mtb trail which snakes from left to right. Dual slalom is just two of those put together for racing.

 I too did a double take on the word "slolam". Maybe it's a regional useage?? In BMX this is simply "riding trails". In MTB I'd describe this line as a unique flow trail with some jumps. Ah well. Looks like so much fun!!
