Jacob is back home for a couple of weeks after being across the globe for the first two rounds of the EWS. He and I set out to a classic Vernon trail to catch up with each other. No fancy editing, no music... there's a unique beauty to simplicity.

Hero dirt and a cool temperature. Perfect spring conditions in Vernon!

 @clear-glass-media:

This is Noble Canyon. It is maintained by a small group of friends. I'm just mentioning this so credit is given where credit is do.

Shredb4dead myself built SOS (with help from our PB dirtbag friends)
NOCS did pay for some signage.

XB and Pureadrenilin : Baconator

We are happy with out to much organised bike club out there as that way as we have little to no red tape.

PS. More trail's in Noble coming soon to the PB app.

 @vernonjeff: @shredb4dead @xb @Pureadrenilin thanks for all the work. The trails are immaculate. Didn't want to mention Noble Canyon due to the quasi down-low nature of that network but glad to see the excellence of those trails shown

 Great riding and sweet looking trail. Most importantly it was a awesome edit. No slow mo and no replays of the same trick or corner ten times in a row. Oh yea no shitty dub step tech music.

 The acoustics are the best. Sometimes it is better with no music.

 @tacklingdummy Nothing better sounding than a dialed bike on yummy loam!

 But seriously, what bike was that? Carbon, Ali? Wheelsize? Flats or Clips? Fit4 or Grip2? Or, was it a Lyrik RC2? Eagle? Tyres?

So many questions wanting answers... I can't be the only one.

Oh BTW, fantastic riding on sweet looking trails!

 Its a Norco Range C.1 with some changes!
I use 27.5 Spank Oozy 350 wheels
Crankbrothers Mallet E's Clipped in (although I switch to flats to change things up sometimes)
RockShox Lyrik RC2 with 180 mm travel with an RS Super deluxe coil in the rear
my current drivetrain is a Sram Eagle XO1
I use Schwalbe Magic Mary's front and rear with their downhill casing and extra soft compound. about 17psi front and 20 rear.

Feel free to message me for more information if you're curious!

 Best guess is Kal Park. But, like shaunnyz says, look up the Vernon area on Trailforks. The okanagan valley has so much epic good riding on offer, you'll only just scratch the surface. But, you'll have a blast doing it.
  • + 3
 @kkse: Not Kal park. Hint. The trail name is in the video description.

 It’s ‘the baconator’ over at Noble Canyon.
  • + 3
 @modjoe2 It's actually two trails linked together. Everything to the 31 second mark is Sauce ON Side then Baconator. Find both and do the full pull for maximum shred.
