R-Dog Tears the Trail a New One: C3 Project Summer Series - Video

Every trail starts with a shovel. For the sixth and final installment of the C3 Project Summer Series, cinematographer Nic Genovese of Mind Spark Media takes us back to the roots, reminding us to acknowledge the magic created by mountain biking’s unsung heroes: trail builders. Watch as Ryan “R-Dog” Howard carves his way down the lush Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, throwing down big whips and endless style on an old favorite, and doing his part to shape the trail for riders to follow.

 I'm convinced there was small hidden sticks of dynamite in those berms which were timed perfectly to go off just as he rode by.
