I recently got the chance to film this project called ''Go all the way''. It's a video about an upcoming pro downhill rider named Tristan Botteram. He lives in the flattest country in Europe (The Netherlands), which is of course extremely hard if you try to make a career as a downhill racer. While still being in school he travels most of his weekends to different countries to train. He literally has to ''Go all the way'' for his goal.

 @daanschel : Hum... excuse my humble yet expert eyes, but between 0`52 and 0`56, for exemple, things seem to suddenly accelerate.
Not to say that Tristan is not fast, but there is obviously something wrong during these few seconds... Both the move of the camera and the rider`s speed look quicker.
That`s simply my impression, or not...
Good job anyway.
Proost!

 Haha you know I edited this video right? Believe it or not but none of the riding shots are sped up.

 Nice riding but I thought the voice over was pretty corny, over pretentious. And even though the rider is a gazillion times better than I'll ever be, EWS trails aren't flow trails. Maybe do a follow-up film with a more EWS-like trail?

 Cool vid, trying to work out where this is. Is this the gully 'close' to Didam, at the 'neighbours'? Don't live in NL anymore, but that would be my best guess Wink

 Haha I guess that's a compliment to Tristan, because actually nothing is sped up.
