When Richie Schley asked if we wanted to join him at Retallack, it was a no brainer. With an epic crew and massive terrain, how could this not be a trip of a lifetime? After having all expectations blown away upon arrival, it sure was hard not to lose ourselves in the riding. Luckily, capturing nugs came easy with studs like Blake Jorgenson and Jake VanHeel behind the lenses. Not to mention they had Richie 'the most photogenic man alive' Schley riding for them. After a weekend of teasing the old dog, it was clear that this was shaping up to be a roast. He took the abuse with a smile on his face, never without a witty comeback. It’s easy to see why he’s been so successful beyond just being really, really ridiculously good looking.
We can’t thank Retallack enough for showing us an amazing time. If it’s not on your dream destination list, it definitely will be after this video! Words by Ray Syron
