Green River is one of the few locations in Utah that has been a proving ground for Mountain Biking. Over the past decade, hundreds of riders visited Utah to tackle the terrain and show their style. It's been unfortunate in the past couple of years, Green River has been viewed as "played" or "overdone". Bas has always wanted to give it a shot, and so this fall we drove south to Utah to give it our best

While it may have been the shoulder season for mountain biking, Utah was a great escape from snowy Canada. We spent 10 days waking up at sunrise, filming, going back to the Super 8 for breakfast, digging, then filming at sunset. Our trip had the unfortunate ending of Bas separating his shoulder on the last hit we built, luckily we still had plenty of footage to create "Shoulder Season", we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the trip.

 Congratulations to Mindspark for winning the internet....again!

 So if I had a video that I thought could be video of the month I shouldn't bother uploading it on pb now?

 I was sceptical considering they've done an edit at Green River before but I absolutely was not disappointed. This had such a different feel to it. Literally cannot complain about Mind Spark edits unless, like me, you wish they lasted longer

 Steenbergen's and Doerfling's styles are on point! 2 of my favorite riders right after Zink's and Strait's of course...=)...Merica!

 Bas is hands down the most stylish rider on a DH bike.
  • + 19
 Don't forget Fairclough,Semenuk and Aggy!They also have a style level above!(in my opinion!)
  • + 24
 Is it me? or my computer? Every edit with a bit of commentary is a volume battle, turn it up to hear what the rider has to say then scramble to turn in back down when the music fades back in..

 same goes for every movie out there

 How much did you pay for this video?
  • + 3
 Not your computer, it's your speakers or lack of decent headphones. Perfectly fine through my Bose.
  • + 2
 @captyvatemedia because the brand matters, right? It sounded perfectly fine through my shitty Skullcandy's too.
  • - 1
 Well yes, it does actually. I know for a fact I didn't pay a good sum of cash to have the same poor quality that Apple iPhone earbuds deliver. Not to mention my Bose have a noise cancelling function used by commercial airlines.

 Always loved Vanderham. Bas feels like he's cut from the same cloth. Style for miles!

 Wrong dutch family name there

 My question is, is Brendan Fairclough still the best Free-racer or has Bas taken his spot as free-racer king?
  • + 8
 When you see the name Bas van Steenbergen you automatically know that the video will be amazing, but this video is just the best! The music is good and the riding is sensational. This video is so inspiring to me and this is definitely one of my all time favourites, good job Mind Spark Cinema Smile

 SOOOOO smooth, even my sister who doesn't ride saw it over my shoulder and said it was smooth

 Even his crashes would be smooth and steezy

 It was videos like this that got me into downhill. Pure freedom to build whatever you can imagine

 Someone is trying to get a spot beside his brother on Rampage 2015. I would give it to him without a doubt. Great style, I know he has some steezy one-handed whips.

 Honestly didn't do it for me. Bas goes fast and big. This vid was way too slow for Bas' style, imho.

 What bike is that?
  • + 2
 Its a Transition I think.
  • + 1
 Yup, Transition TR500, adjustable geometry from 180mm to 200mm and 26 or 27.5 wheel compatible. www.transitionbikes.com

 Incredible! That's how to fly your bike

 Awesome vid, beaaautiful riding and scenery! unfortunately, i think the song killed the adrenaline. too mellow.

 Heal up quick. Big Grin

 You might be thinking of his younger brother, Thomas Van Steenbergen (the one who crashed at Rampage). Talented family apparently!

 I was referring to this sentence from the article:

"Our trip had the unfortunate ending of Bas separating his shoulder on the last hit we built, luckily we still had plenty of footage to create "Shoulder Season", we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the trip."

Depending on severity, this might actually need surgery, if I understand Wikipedia correctly...
So my wish, that he might have a fast recovery and that it's not too serious. Smile
