He's been showcased in Anthill Films' "Return to Earth," and is currently finishing up a phenomenal race season here in BC. So far, Anthony has had six top-3 races this summer, including three 1st place finishes. We shot this video this past August between his race events.

Vaea Verbeeck - Pushing Her Limits In Utah: Vaea Verbeeck has solidified herself as one of the top female gravity riders in the world. Running the gamut of disciplines, she has made her mark in World Cup DH, holds current back-to-back Queen of Crankworx titles, pushes the limits of Women's freeride, and is involved in Red Bull Formation. Finding the time for your own personal growth and development with such a busy schedule can be extremely challenging, let alone making the time for a film project highlighting her level of progression. When Vaea said she wanted to do a project together with Calvin, we saw the stars align and jumped at the opportunity! Rider: Vaea Verbeeck. Video: Calvin Huth.




Peter Jamison - Sessions Ep.3: To conclude the ‘Sessions’ series for the season, the team and I headed off to Highland Mountain Bike Park, where I grew up riding. I first rode at Highland in 2011, which was my first ever downhill MTB experience, and I rode there on a regular basis until 2019, when I moved away. In that time, I was super fortunate to be able to develop my skills on the bike and meet so many amazing friends. For this trip to the park, many of those friends who I met growing up at the park came together to rebuild the ‘Dirt Pipe.’ Originally, the ‘Dirt Pipe’ was built for the New World Disorder films, and my most memorable moment from the original build was Adam Hauck’s double whip in NWD 10. Those films are what inspired me to want to be a professional athlete, and to now be in the position to help with this build was super special. To begin the build process, over the winter, the Highland team and I had a few preliminary design meetings to go through what we thought the pipe needed and then many months later, we got to construction. At the end of the day, I really believe that this trail is going to have a very positive impact on the next generation of riders from the East Coast, and I am excited to see what the future holds!




The All New Aluminum Process X: Kona Super Grassroots rider Noah Hofmann is no stranger to getting rowdy. The EDR Jr and World Cup racer calls bike park Leogang home – where no berm-to-berm gaps or sniper lines are safe from his tires. We figured his creative and burly style, combined with Leogang's high-speed trails, were the perfect way to illustrate just what the all-new aluminum Process X is capable of. There is the small possibility that, in our brief to Noah, he got surly and burly a little mixed up – no one should keep a shuttle mom waiting!

 The first clip Compulsion was amazing. The terrain in costal BC is unbelievable. If a divine creator exists, this is surely evidence of that entity being a fan of mountain biking.

 The riding and building was so good, to be totally torpedoed by editing that tried to pack as many cuts into a 2 minute piece as possible. You must of have spent so much time building this; let us actually see you hit it with a single shot.

 Sorry guys - I'm going to say it, BMX is so much more interesting than 95% of the MTB stuff out there, it just is. Seeing rampage is fun and some of the bigger stuff but it gets sterile while the creativity with BMX is always eye opening and the urban riding always keeps things unique.

No to mention the risks those guys take on a day in/day out basis

 @RadBartTaylor: I don't have to; I just won't watch them. Nothing lamer than going onto a website of another sport and saying how much better your preferred one is.

 @deco1: nothing lamer? Stealing bikes, kicking puppies, eating marmite instead of vegamite, rooting for the All Blacks over the Wallabies, saying Sam Hill sucks....all outranked by me posting that a BMX vid is cool...got it.

 I’m a sucker for watching rock climbing documentaries even though I know nothing about it and have no desire to do it. That was way gnarlier than I expected.

 I am so bad with heights that I was feeling super anxious just watching that video. But it was still fun to watch.
