I set out on assignment to film James Doerfling for Lizard Skins to promote their newly developed website. James resides in Williams Lake, and this year Williams Lake was the hot spot for fires! One area alone was 52000 hectares, and there was up to 6 areas. There was so many fires they had to classify them to areas. The fires were so big it was smokey in Edmonton and the air quality was affected all the way to Manitoba. Manitoba is 3500 kilometers away! With our window short due to Interbike and Red Bull Rampage, we had a short meeting. At the end of the discussion James wanted to ride and I wanted to shoot. Bad air quality or not, it is all about doing what you love!
I love this video because these are the trails that helped shape James' riding style! So if anyone wants to have as much fun as James and I have, you better get up to Williams Lake and stop by Red Shreds Bike and Board Shed. They will point you to one of the 140 trails in town! Hope to see you there.
