For this video I wanted to shoot a few of my favourite local trails and showcase how amazing the Sea to Sky riding really is." - Matt Bolton

Girls Gotta Eat Dirt: The story of three best friends, roommates, and riding partners with a taste for the finer things.




Looks Like A Session: It looks like a Session because it is a Session.




Children Of The Dust - #1: The terrain around Kamloops, BC, including the Bike Ranch, has lent itself to shaping the riders that live and visit here. Graham Agassiz, Lane Bodor, Jesse Munden, Marcus Cant, and Soren Farenholtz embrace the area and thrive within it.




Are You Riding The Right Size Bike? Getting the right size fit on your bike can be challenging, there are a lot of trends out there right now, some are awesome and some might not be. I think a hardtail needs to be sized quite differently than a suspension bike and in this video I'll show you why!




Erik Elstran - Awesome Biking Dude: Awesome biking is an understatement, Erik Elstran serves up seven minutes of utterly amazing BMX trickery. Prepare to have your mind blown.




Speed Dial: Riders Anthony Perrin, Bruno Hoffmann, and Dan Lacey escaped winter with a week in the Island of Tenerife. The excursion capped a very unexpected 2020 and the much-needed escape and reconnection of the team after such a long period apart inspired some heavy, creative riding. Not even the announcement that the UK was about to return to lockdown, forcing the trip to be cut short could put a damper on the brief moment of collective good vibes. The shared time together reminded everyone that our family and friends are only a “Speed Dial” away.




Ryota Miyaji - CultCrew: Ryota Miyaji, doing his thing in the streets of Japan.




John Dilo's "561" Part: Dilo heads straight to the streets after returning home to FL, breaking new ground at The Triangle and laying waste to every pad and bar in his path.




Pizza Skateboards "Ethereum" Full Length Video: Ducky sets his most destructive path to date while Rahim, Vincent, and crew emerge as some of the heaviest hitters in the game. No fake crypto hype here.




Steeped In Tradition Episode 8 - The Farmer: Meet The Farmer - Dave Van Dame, a staple of Alta for the past 48 years and its most famous snow farmer.




Third Person: Sam Kuch visualizes every line and every air before he drops in. Each turn, each transition plays out in his mind's eye before he makes it a reality. Third Person explores Sam's unique approach to freeskiing, bringing the viewer into his mind and along for the ride. Skier: Sam Kuch. Director: Blair Richmond.




Rotpunkt - Alex Megos And The Advent, The Agony And The Art Of The Redpoint: Through failure and success, Alex Megos strives to be the best climber in the world.




Shooting Moving Masters Zemeckis Style: With shooting for my next film quickly approaching I've been thinking about coverage a lot lately. One inspiration for me is Robert Zemeckis and the classic moving master type shooting that you'll often find in his films.




The Seawolf: The Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia is a naturally rich and diverse land home to many indigenous People. Like other areas in the country rich in natural resources, the land and its people have been and continue to be threatened by government regulation, restriction, and resource extraction. This documentary explores the perspectives of Mike Willie and K̕odi Nelson, two Indigenous men looking to conserve their land, protect their culture and heritage, bring prosperity and respect to their people, and find harmony and reconciliation between Indigenous People and the Canadian government once and for all.

 The most utterly amazing thing about that Erik Elstran edit is not the great trickery but that fact that he wears a helmet!

 Alta, blower pow, wildcat, the farmer.....I have goosebumps from those images and memories from the 90's...... The winter of '92/3 changed my entire life.

 The first film is nice , although a bit cheesy for my taste but it does dig up some fond memories when i lived on Bainbridge island in an old chicken coop turned into a funky cottage in the woods . i dont miss the rain but i do miss the nature and the people .

 That first video kinda touched a sore spot in my mtb past. I'd say the loss of those those trails and well-built features mirror my experience in Socal open space. I watched those guys vigorously swinging those axes and hammers, I can't help thinking, "attaboy, keep swinging' like that,...won't be long until yer spine pays for it".
......and I can't really feel bad for thinking that.

 I was a little confused...a new film about a closure 9 years ago? I thought at the end it was going to be about the community rallying to get it opened again recently or something like that.

Also, I was surprised a significant bike company like Transition only has 9 employees. Would've guess it takes a lot more.

 @stalkinghorse: We had 9 people back then, but we have grown a lot since that video was made.

 When I was growing up in Ballard, Bainbridge was a quick drive and a ferry ride away to get to a whole different world for me. We built a bunch of bike trails in the woods by my friends property, and I still have a big scar in my hand to remind me of it. I'm in that cheesy video, along with a whole lot of people I still see weekly. It's good to see that it was about a decade ago and the sentiment is the same. That video was made to try and persuade people in charge that their plans were misdirected, so it's a bit cheesy intentionally. This user group isn't going away and if we don't get a legitimate place to recreate, we will make it happen anyway. This is a prime example.

 Alex Megos hasn’t gotten the memo: The best climber is the one having the most fun.

 The best climber is the one in a yellow t-shirt, except Ondra, he doesn't even need one

 He used to have a max three attempts rule. When that goes out the window, so does the fun it seems.

 Frame bag on a street BMX. Take that Fanny-packers.

 Not sure what's your point? That BMX frame bag is smaller than the average fanny pack

 @mi-bike: In the world of BMX, where life saving equipment like helmets are frowned upon for fashion and cool factor, I would think a frame bag would be about as blasphemous as many MTB'ers still think of fanny packs (despite the practicality of each).

 What a shame about Whatcom. The web address doesn't work anymore so I guess the matter never resolved itself.
