The brilliant Bas van Steenbergen makes it look easy in Silver Star Bike Park.

We are loving this video. It was awesome to have an incredible rider like Bas take on the early season trails with such amazing speed and skill. Not to mention how fantastic the trails are looking this year.

Watching the video got us talking about what makes the perfect trail. For sure, the foundation is the trail crew's hard work walking every trail and raking every berm. But moisture content matters, too, as Bike Park manager Cam Sorensen recently mused: "we've had just the right combination of moisture and heat to hold the trails together, keeping them nice and tacky, negating brake bumps and keeping the berms good and steep." It's definitely the perfect combination for the perfect run.

New for 2015

Other developments in the Bike Park include a new and improved pump track opening by July 1st. Through the summer, a series of small, medium and large dirt jumps will be added in along the sides of the pump track.

Also in the works and coming along nicely is the third and final stage of Jedi Mind Trick - a Silver Star favourite. The build is happening in sections, which will open as they are completed. The first series of jumps is nearing completion and is scheduled to open in early July, possibly by July 1st if the moisture content permits.

MENTIONS: @SilverStarBikePark / @Basvansteenbergen / @virtumedia

 Massive props for the camera work too! I know nothing about filming... but something about the way the frames were shot and linked gives viewers one of the most palpable, IN-the-RHYTHM experiences of any vid I've ever seen. Pure magic ...Keep up that ecstatic sorcery!!!!!

 Anybody know the song and artist? I need to add it to my playlist so I can copy his style and then go out to shred like him only to get pulled back into reality and realize I'm just a fat middle-aged man whose only similarity of riding style are the tasty tunes playing in the background of my bike trip GoPro footage and his pro edit.
But seriously, what's the song and band?

 Music was channeling 80s era Springsteen with a new twist. Riding was channeling some other planet! The speed and style - poetic!

 Good call on the Springsteen, it goes well with the Steenbergen study session.
Those trails look so moist, too bad its drier than a popcorn fart in B.C. now. #Global Warming Sucks!
