Nelson, BC at it’s finest! The unbelievable town with miles of expert trails in pristine wilderness. This video is representing what dedication to a sport, the health of a body, the health of an environment and the strength of will can manifest and thrive in. An athlete’s success is always riding on continuous power, mental clarity and recovery time after injury.

Supporting long-term health should be the focus, over short term gains. These 2 amazing downhill riders Sky Dunn-Sarvice and Kendall McLean with the help and of Sierra Willow and Claire Buchar and many others are creating an avenue for professional athletes to be supported and sponsored by health/wellbeing companies and educators. Check it out! These guys are freaking fast and focused! We are so honored to help support this movement! Feel free to share the magic of this video!

 Yes.
Edit: The trails and riding were absolutely amazing! The hypocritical malarkey on the other hand didn't add any value to the video imho.

 it had me wondering if i'm the only one who rides cuz it's fun, and not some deeper spiritual thingus. but it appears to be a commercial for something, so i assume that's connected. however, i liked the vid and it made me wanna go ride.

 So painful! Hey young, world travelling, racers, just ride. don't talk. At least they spared us a hypocritical lesson on environmentalism while riding the latest tech around the world, or did I luck out and mute it early enough?

 Cheesy, too long intro. check.

Images of food or coffee. check.

Make mountain biking look like an easy, silky smooth jaunt in the forest when it's actually rough as f*ck and physically exhausting. check.

Oh, and lock up your tires and just tear the trail apart for shots of flicking dirt while you talk about love for the trails. double check.

Why don't bike companies make videos that make riding look like it actually is? It's not like cutting butter with a hot knife, it's like cutting frozen butter that's full of bolts and headset spacers with a triangle.
