It's that time of year again in Whistler. Dust has given way to mud and the long, warm days of Summer have gone. Some have already put their bikes away and stare longingly at the mountain tops awaiting that first dusting of snow. Others are busy racking up vertical and laying down tracks through the mud.

Denis falls into the latter category. He's had a banger year placing 2nd overall in the ultra competitive Phat Wednesday DH series and made it through to the finals of the Official World Whip-Offs. On top of that, he was also a big part of our forthcoming film project documenting our massive road trip to Central America this past Spring.

Watch for much more from him in the future but for now, Join Denis on a few laps of the Whistler Bike Park as he sends this season out with a bang.

 I refuse to believe Whistler actually exists. It looks just too good to be true.

 Whistler's like a happy place where religion doesn't even exist. Everyone is happy, no wars, nobody dies for no apparent reason. But unfortunately when you leave you realise peace doesn't exist because religion does. lol off on a rant

 Don't wanna be a dick, but you need to work on shot framing dude, A LOT of the shots his head was cut off or he was going out of frame. Was quite annoying and couldn't really enjoy the video! Try not to film as tight maybe!

 I'm glad someone else said it in better words than I would've managed.

 It's not about the rider, rather the connection between bike and ground. It's the producer's style. Nice vid!
  • 2 0
 Yeah normally is annoying but I didn't mind it in this vid. Quite enjoyed the change of style. I really liked the effect @0:43 where i 'visualised' him hitting the launch.

  • 3 1
 I know right? I was but a lad when this came out, still a shred-worthy song. Love having music like this in the edits!
  • 8 1
 Old AFI definitely!
  • 6 1
 when AFI came on i went to itunes to pause it bc i thought it started playing randomly and i didnt want to listen to music but the bike instead. it was a confusing couple of seconds. then i realized he had AFI for the sound track and was stoked.
  • 6 2
 I do miss old times when bike edits had pumped music. ...I know that Dinosaurs must die, but this electro-funk-rap-step is sometimes.....wrong.

 ^^^ I use the same Slayer track for all videos. So i don't worry about what Ratboy speaking too.

 This edit could of meshed with the soundtrack better if it was cut up a bit more, but if I was to go with another track Afi - The Nephilim, would be it. Slow in the beginning, plus seasons changing pretty appropriate.

 Good stuff Denis! The backflip was a surprise. You always have a new trick up your sleeve.

 Those were some nice moves. I wonder how many emergency responses happen on an average summer day at Whistler?

 Winter is the clean season, not the off-season. No mud, just snow pack.
