Video: Squamish's Kasper Woolley Finds the Limit in 'Hectic'

Jan 21, 2020
by OneUp Components  


Kasper Woolley is a 20 year old enduro racer from Squamish, BC. Last season he finished on the podium in 3 of the 8 rounds of the Enduro World Series in U21, with a 2nd in Zermatt, 3rd in Tasmania and 3rd in Northstar. OneUp is excited to continue supporting Kasper for the 2020 EWS season as he moves up to race in Open men.

[ hek-tik ] adjective characterized by intense agitation, excitement, confused and rapid movement.
Every ride we search to find a few of these hectic moments and try to control the chaos for a turn or two.

 A recent Paul the Punter "how to corner" video to Kasper was entertaining - www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJf4bQ1y1f0

 Edits like this and Semenuk's Lightspeed are hard to follow... all the quick cuts either between angles or to completely different clips make it really difficult to appreciate the riding and the trails. I get that it's a stylistic choice, but I hope this is a limited trend. I think there was some really good riding here... but I just can't tell if half these jumps were landed onto trail or into the bushes, or speed was maintained though more than a corner or two.

 Bring back more shoots like Semenuk in UnReal... I could actually see what was happening when clips are longer than 2 seconds.

 Met his father and him at Northstar year before last. Nice kid (now young man) and Dad. I hope to keep seeing him progress all the the way to the top.

 Why is it that every video posted with a pro, someone has to chime in with their little story of meeting said pro, how awesome/down-to-earth/rad they are, and ending with some encouraging words for the upcoming race season?! It's like you guys are using some template...

 @CycloGoss: Reminds me of when I met CycloGoss in the PinkBike comments section this year. Nice commenter, he was super down to earth. I'm happy that he was able to sell his Enduro and hope he has a great season.

 How come when I wear long pants when I ride my trail bike I don't look cool like him? Is it because I wear joggers from Old Navy?

 Thanks man! We wanted this one to feel as intense to watch in terms of cinematography and edit style, as it is to watch Kasper in real life
