Getting fast and loose at Silver Star with that rad Slovenian guy who used to live in a truck at the Bike Ranch and has recently migrated to Vernon. We ended up having time constraints and managed to get something rad out of it, owing to Jakob's supernatural ability to thrown down for five hours straight without water or rest.

Jakob would like to thank Norco, Skyride, Live to Play, 5.10, Spank and IXS for their support in the 2019 season.

 Silver star has to be one of my most favourite places to ride. If it’s got silver star in the title I have to watch just to remember how fun it is there and daydream about when I can get back to ride there again.

 @madocreg2 Here too; preferred it to Whistler.

And how about the drive from Whistler, through Lillioet, to get there. Wowzers; 4 climactic zones in one day. Excellent memories.

 I liked the video's progression from blue run to double-black skills. I'm thinking, "I can do that, I can do that, I'm close to doing that, hmm, I might get that on my best day, ok, this is getting serious, uh, no way, ok, wtf?"

 Thoroughly enjoyed the ‘lumberjacky, full-face, just ride ya bike’ style of this.

 @tomasinbc: who mentioned the bike park? he's wearing a lumberjack shirt..
  • 10 4
 @tobiusmaximum: no that's just a plaid shirt bud

 @tomasinbc: okay kiddo, well before you were born that’s what men wore to chop down trees. But we’ll called it ‘plaid, full-face, just ride ya bike’ for your benefit.

 @tobiusmaximum: Don't mind him... You see, all is folks from BC wear plaid. So to us, this is just everyday normal riding apparel.

 @gnarnaimo: exactly! Everyone in BC is a lumberjack aren't they?!

 @tobiusmaximum: I get the feeling someone chopped down their own xmas tree last year and has identified as a lumberjerk ever since.

 Awesome video. I think I liked the first superman shot the most, when I saw the jump and the angle I thought for sure It was going to be a superman, I wasn't disappointed! The last shot was impressive too! I don't like seeing braiding, not on trails or in videos.

 Sick riding. The filming is a bit awkward at times. Max should work on his pans and zooms to be more fluid and keep the rider in the frame. Fun video!

 Hey man. We shot this thing in about four hours while racing a chairlift and the sun. I don't disagree on a few shots, we didn't have the luxury of multiple takes on plenty of them, so that is how it ends up. Not ideal for me either. Though I don't recall putting a single zoom in the vid here. Cheers!

 @mmmmm: nice work even under a time crunch. Copy that on zoom, maybe just the distance to subject was off sometimes. I'm no expert on steady cam operations with a runner. I'm a stationary shooter.
