Video: Dane Scott Makes the Natural Shift from Moto to MTB

Apr 10, 2021
by Corbin Selfe  

Dane's shift from riding and racing motocross to mountain bikes came naturally after making the move to Canada 2 years ago. Not only is Dane an incredible rider but also a trained Helicopter Mechanic by trade, and with those skills comes a fine sense of precision and skill that also shows in his riding. We set out together in between work schedules and the change of seasons to capture some riding making those sessions extra memorable.

 the immigration process would be pretty easy for a brit id imagine and then if you can sell some organs and all your belongings for enough to scrape a million dollars together you could probably be able to buy a garden shed in squamish.

 I’d definitely take organ donation into account for a life in Canada

 @endurogan: I looked at vancouver about 15 years ago and was floored how expensive it was, I thought sanfran was bad but holy crap vancouver had it beat. I can only imagine how expensive it is now.

 @endurogan: Good news- this vid was filmed in Revelstoke... so not super cheap but definitely not Vancouver or Squamish and there are many rad places to live in the Kootenays that are even more affordable. Canada is a massive country- even BC is relatively huge and the housing prices in Vancouver aren’t really a great measure for the affordability of the rest of the province.

 Lets hope they open the heli lodges soon. My German buddy is in the middle of immigrating and trying to make it happen in Revy, but with most of the ski operations closed down, times are tough. Without the tourist trade places like Revelstoke will suffer. Good luck Dane.
