Brendan Howey: Blood, Sweat and Beers

http://www.facebook.com/aaronlarock We disappeared off the radar for 8 days into a clearcut with a van full of tools and camera gear. This is what we created. Special thanks to Scott Secco, Piers Zdan and Pelle Gustavs.

 This is what mountain biking is all about, and is what got me into mountain bike videography in the first place. Personally one of my favourite edits of all time. Nice work Larock!!

 Now that's a Mtb video!!

 Yeah it's amazing! Has cinematic quality and we are lucky to be watching something like this for free on the internet.
You have come a long way from the day's of What's Next? and even that is still a great little movie to watch so what does that make this? tup Salute

 absolutly amazing video, VOD

 That was an incredible movie. The whole production was so well put together, excellent music, great edits. I love the way you covered the build process thoughts in the introduction then the credits roll, music starts and we're in it. I always look forward to your vids but this one is epic. Movie quality... Good work... Especially love all the mixed shooting, and the accelerated time lapse WITH slow tracking at 0:55 was incredibly well executed. Two thumbs up, can't wait for the next one...... Smile

Kudos, once again Smile

  • + 1
 Awesome classic. p.s. watch those power lines! Jesus
  • + 1

  • + 1
 Jimi Hendrix- All along the watchtower
  • + 26
 holy shit YES! old school tune and new school riding = RAD
  • + 11
 That was literally the most epic video I have ever seen. I have an eargasm every time I listen to Hendrix.

 yeah! Looks like the REAL music is coming back to bike movies Wink
  • + 3
 when i thought nobody listned to good music anymore, bam vod with jimi omfg..... the best vod iv ever seen
  • + 2
 Man I totally can appriciate more than just the riding and the filming. We are going through a seriouse logging spell on more than one of our local hills. Try 3, so the fact that you put in that much work in clear cut hillside! Hats off to the whole team. We're not just talking about moving dirt here, logs, stick, stumps and rocks. It all comes out after the devestation of the machines. Great job!
  • + 3
 I was pulled in as soon as I heard the first few notes of the song. Just shows you the endless pursuit of that rare new song no one's ever heard can be avoided by looking back. Great shooting and song choice. You nailed it.
  • + 2
 The building of that trail is excellent.So much effort goes into building by so few but enjoyed by so many.I get just as much out of building a berm than i do trying to destroy it......If you ever want to feel more complete about MTB just join a building crew. This film makes me wonder why i ever head up the mountain with my bike and camera.Just when you feel you are getting some skill you see this and it takes it all to a new level. Thanks to all involved with the making of this video.I feel most honoured that the MTB Gods have chosen me to enjoy this wonderful lifestyle and that there are so many dedicated folk pushing there limits to remind us all why we are so lucky to do what we love.......choice of song was beautiful.If Jimi could see this he would be stoked......
  • + 5
 you guys are 100% comitted to riding, spending eight days constant building, FAIR PLAY Smile
  • + 3
 this video was simply amazing. getting back to the basics and roots of riding. Jimi helped add to the simplicity of the video. pure excellence.

 ok i live on vancouver island does anyone have a clue on its location
  • + 2
 wondering the same thing
  • + 3
 Yeah location would be real cool, I think it would be hard giving up a location like that though.. lots of time and effort where put into these trails and to have someone destroy them would forsure suck.

  • + 2
 Such a fantastic video Mr. Larock. I really enjoy the videos that you put out. Do you have any feature length work out there? Something on BluRay so I can watch on my TV? Big Grin
