Video: Brage Vestavik Builds and Shreds a Crazy Freeride Line in Norway

Sep 6, 2020
by Ed Spratt  


bigquotesTrysil Bike Arena gave me the opportunity this year to build my own trail at the bike park. At our disposal, we had a good group of guys and some heavy machinery. We had only one month in total to build and film the whole project. 3 heavy weeks with 12 hour days on the tools and we got the building done. It was strange for me to build stuff that fast. Suddenly it was 3 jumps in a row without testing one of them. Usually, when I'm digging at home I can spend 1 month on 1 jump, so I feel like I have learnt a lot. Super fun. The bros from Blur Media came to shoot for a total of 9 days. Filming sessions started early in the morning and we kept going until the sun went down. Hyped we got it done. The B-RAGE Trail will open spring 2021! But we will have some sessions going on this autumn! Brage Vestavik

bigquotesBack together with Brage Vestavik stacking clips in one of the sickest bike park trails out there. Set out to build a challenging trail for the experienced rider, and for the next generation to aspire to, Brage has really created something special at Trysil Bike Park. A huge skinny drop in to a gnarly wall ride, heavy hitters and large sends, this trail has it all.

This trail probably has some of the biggest sends we have ever shot. On our first walkthrough, we weren’t sure if Brage would be able to hit all the features, the course is crazy technical of course, but mainly because Brage was so worn out from all the digging. He was a broken man. There was also a concern if we would be able to finish shooting because he hadn’t really made any test runs and some of the final adjustments on the trail weren’t done until the very last day.

A serious amount of effort was put down in front of and behind the lens - pushing the limits of both crew and rider

 Brage has gotta be one of the most 'sponsorable' riders out there right now, fast, stylish, long viking hair, big trick bag, sick edits, builds ridiculous trails and built like a brick sh!thouse... I hope a few other people at least have the skill to ride that trail though!

 Is Brage a downhiller, a freerider, a slopestyler, and/or a trailbuilder? He is all of those things...and more!! He is a Super Viking!! He is Brage!! One of my favourite shredders to watch!!

 The fact that Brage is only 20, looks like a fully grown man, and shreds harder than I can imagine makes my 21 year old self feel 12.

 Brage is an incredible rider. Heaps of raw talent and always awesome to watch. Feel like he slips under the radar a bit perhaps because of where he lives. Either way, hope he has big things ahead. Would be awesome to see him ride something like Rampage.

 This dude is so sick, love his style and power on the bike. I mean no disrespect by this at all, but its really rad to see a slightly heavier set rider with this kind of agility. Reminds me of Jamie Foy in skateboarding.
