Eric from Deity and I have been talking about doing a film project for a while, but things never lined up with racing and travel schedules. Now that I’ve stepped back from racing to focus on other things in life, Eric and I began talking about finally making this film project happen! Coming from the fast-paced culture of the San Francisco Bay Area, Drew and I wanted to do something different. So when we got down to talking and we told Eric this wasn’t going to be a typical bike edit and some people might not see the point, he immediately said that he trusted our vision, giving us creative control of the project, thank you for that!

We decided to spend ten days in one of the seemingly forgotten regions of the US; Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. With limited knowledge of the region from what we had been told by friends or read online, which was very scarce, we set out with a goal of finding proper descents and capturing the ethos of each stop along the road. The weather played games, we drove lots, rode with friends, went to a rodeo, drank coffee, slept in some questionable places, woke up early, got to witness an extreme enduro, destroyed my stomach (and bathrooms) with pizza, and left with the feeling that we need to go back.

 Montana's tourism motto is "Get Lost..."

Was lucky enough to call it home for for 10 years. Definitely some phenomenal places to ride and great people to do it with.

 "Come and take it" T-shirt guy is eyeing "TRAIL BEER". I think it'd be a good choice. The beer, that is.

 Depends on your definition of "near". Have you ever heard of Teton Pass?

 There is some cool stuff in the Big Holes, up by Kelly Canyon Ski Hill! Not very well marked but there is some rad stuff in there. I'd recommend getting a local to show you around.

 @Taylor623:

Some rideable stuff, wish we had more of a presence to help beat back the brush in areas. Seems to be a lot of bovine traffic and their piles late summer.

Driggs area is great, and some real good stuff down by Pocatello.
