When Sombrio's Marketing Manager, Ashley Turk asked Spawn Cycles team rider, Dane Jewett about his favourite riders during a photoshoot early in the spring, Dane was quick to blurt out the nickname of GT Factory Racing's Brook Macdonald - the Bulldog. It got Ashley's wheels turning and later this summer she was able to arrange a little surprise for Dane and some of the other Spawn team riders during a trip to Coast Gravity Park in Sechelt, BC.

The Bulldog and The Pups

The groms were a couple laps deep when a slightly bigger guy showed up on the shuttle in the same kit. Despite flying halfway around the world and only getting a couple hours of sleep the night before, the Bulldog was ready to shred!

Even with a crew ranging from 8 years old up to a World Cup DH racer, picking trails at Coast Gravity didn’t seem like too much trouble.

Spawn had already planned on having Scott Secco show up to shoot some footage at Coast Gravity, but having Brook there definitely amped up the excitement for the groms to get after it - who needs goggles on a dry, dusty August day?

Between shots, there was a constant huddle around the camera to check out footage and see what needed adjusting on lines or tricks. It also gave Brook a chance to catch his breath since he was pushing all the kids' bikes up the trails on steep terrain between shots.

One of best things of the day was watching the groms pick up on Brook's riding style - foot out corners blowing dust through the berms quickly became a favourite!

Boosting jumps with the Pinkbike Long Jump World Champion didn't hurt anyone's confidence in the air either.

This was definitely one of the most fun days of the year for us! Huge thanks to Brook for taking the time to come shred! Shout out to the groms (left to right), Danny Zureski, Mateo Quist, Dane Jewett and Anthony Shelly as well as Scott Secco, Ashley and Travers from Sombrio and everyone at Coast Gravity Park for pulling together such an incredible experience!

MENTIONS: @SombrioCartel / @scottsecco / @GTBicycles / @spawncycles

 Good for you if there is still hope in your case.

All I have left is hope that someday, my 6 y.o. will hit trails like that as hard as those 8 years old lads.

 It's good to see a pro rider hand delivering the stoke to the kids

 It is also very good to see dogs being used in videos. The industry has widely ignored our needs and it is very refreshing to see them take a step forward. I have watched the video several times and cannot figure out where they go when they move out of frame and it stresses me out but I am still happy.

 Like I need another reason to like Brook. If I could pick one rider to go out on a ride with it'd be Steve Smith, but Brook would be my number 2 and number 3 guy.

 Completely inadequate, I do not deserve my multi thousand dollar bike, I am a poser. Groms just making me wonder what the hell I've been doing out there.

 Im glad a company like spawn stepped up for kids but how about some more color selection for the kids I mean I would hate showing up to a park and seeing every other kid riding the exact same bike as mine, and how the heck does Brook tell them apart when they are all geared up the exact same lol

 I love that those kids are out killin' trails. Also, love the Spawn brand. Wish I was a kid again just so I could get one. Maybe Spawn could look into making bikes for big kids, too.

 At first I was like -I can do that no big deal, then I seen the kids doing no handers, whips and no footers. I just walked away hands in the air and said I give up... Nice shredding kiddos!

 Kind of like Foxhunt but you release a Bulldog and set a bunch of Terriers after it.

 Rad! Simply freaking RAD! Props to the parents for stepping back and letting those kids get to that level. That alone takes huge balls.

 Stepping back?
I think it’s pretty likely that there’s some hockey dad stuff going on.
