Video: Claire Buchar Shreds the Sea to Sky in 'The Chase'

by Claire Buchar  


As an early pioneer of Women’s Freeride and with a broad background in DH Racing, Claire has a solid set of skills on the bike. These days, what fuels her fire is supporting the next generation of riders through her various roles in the bike industry and heading out into the wild to explore big loops and new routes with her like-minded adventure pals or just on her own. As she’s moved away from any official competition, Claire considers herself more of a soul rider, really connecting with her surroundings in the moment and embracing the mental and physical challenges of a big day on the bike. These are the things that make her feel rewarded and alive.


Claire chases the last of the bike season aboard her Intense Tracer 279 prototype.

 I have had the pleasure of working with Claire on a big project in the past. All I can say she is the consummate professional, creative, funny and always down to do what it takes to make things happen. Glad to see some content featuring her! Also she has a mean rendition of Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue that she does! haha!

 Awesome piece. She’s always stood out as one of the more stylish female riders, which is saying something given how many womxn rippers there nowadays. So good for the sport and for encouraging more female identified people to get into it. I am also in love with Claire.

 Vid was good, for sure. Totally random though, when the rhythm drops at around :32 it triggered the Ghost Busters theme song in my head, lol.
