Dustination is a project that was on our minds for quite some time now. The idea was to bring together the best freeriders from the Czech Republic and Slovakia and film a pure shred video on the biggest jumps in our countries, which are located in Freeride Bikepark Kálnica in Slovakia.
Kálnica Bikepark is a unique place located on a small hill in the western part of Slovakia near the city of Nové mesto nad Váhom. The park is, unlike others, aimed purely on freeriders and dowhillers and features bunch of challenging trails with difficult obstacles to overcome.
The one, we have decided to film on, is freshly finished trail called ‘’Big Air Line’’. It features couple of berm jumps, sharkfin, left and right transfers and the main feature - a 17 metres (55 feet) long double, which is most likely the biggest double in a publicly accessible bikepark.
The riding conditions were challenging, due to the lack of rain in the previous weeks, hence the name - Dustination. But the more difficult for riders, the more insteresting it was for cameras, creating opportunities to play with the clouds of dust and sun rays coming through them.
