Raw Video: Lightspeed Trail Annihilation with Kasper Woolley in Squamish

Aug 12, 2020
by OneUp Components  


Unless you've been living under a rock for the last two weeks, you've heard of 21 year old, Kasper Woolley. Here's a minute and a half of him riding ridiculously fast in Squamish. The video features Kasper's not-so-secret training track, which he hand built.

We're stoked to be supporting Kasper for his 3rd season on OneUp. For 2020 Kasper is teammates with Jared Graves on the Yeti OneUp Team. Fingers crossed, we'll see them both racing some EWS's later in the year.

 @PeterWojnar: Cheers dude. Whoa! Just watched this for the first time in a ferry line up w Steph. My heart rate clearly went up, I forgot to breathe and she simply said ‘that’s too fast’

 Think he'd make a great PB hot lap candidate for the next episode.

 Seriously, why do we not have more hot lap action right now given the holds on racing.

 @azogas413: Well, access to Cakewalk has been restricted for the past 3 months with the COVID Garibaldi Park closure. Probably the biggest reason for no Hot Laps.

 A masterclass in how to gain speed by pumping natural features.

 That middle section he pumped like crazy was my favorite part

 If you're talking "master class", probably not a stretch either to throw in there: cornering, charging, carrying speed, and body position to name a few more. He's even impressive going slow. His "Paul the punter" episode where he's demonstrating how to go through pylons was a real eye-opener for me too. This dude is a purpose-built ripper, no question. Jaw-dropping to watch, one to try to emulate for sure.

 The way he pumps in that white jersey in the dark filter looks like a seagull grabbing airspeed! Loved Kasper in Paul's cornering video from a while back, helped me think about cornering differently! Hope he keeps getting publicity and his dry commentary gets more airtime. The way he joked with Paul on cornering was fantastic!

 @labiker9: got it right: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJf4bQ1y1f0 His discussion with Paul is exactly the issue I had(have), I hadn't heard people talking about unlocking the hips that way before! cc @mleelman maybe you'll enjoy it too.

 Nice work Woj and Kasper! Rode Kasper’s few days ago and that half fallen over tree by the triple I assumed had come down recently but apparently it’s a trail feature haha. Makes it that much gnarlier!

 Is that what people are calling the Old Midget entrance now?

 This might be the best mob video I´we seen. Ever.

 Remi Gauvin's OneUp edit is probably my all-time favourite edit, but this is pretty sick.

 Treating that gnarly trail like it's a pump track. Kasper must have a BMX racing background.

 My brain doesn't understand the physics behind how he changes direction like that.

 Great riding but equally as good filming. I really appreciate how you can see all the terrain and get a better sense of the track he is riding.
  • 2 0
 He's strong. You can't throw the bike around like that on just skill, there's some muscle behind him. Makes for an awesome edit, nice work guys.
