Self-filmed edit on Skeet Chute just outside of Portland, Oregon.
Just outside of Seattle, Washington is an amazing little oasis for mountain bikers called Duthie Hill. Here you will find an amazing network of trails that has something for everyone. From big jump lines to XC loops to stuff for the little ones. I can't wait to go back! Here is a quick edit I shot on a really fun jump trail called Double Trouble. Shout out to the trail builders for doing such amazing work.
So where do I start? I don't ride at Sandy Ridge much, and it's not that the riding is bad, it's just that it represents everything I dislike about Mountain Biking. Pull up to the parking lot on the weekend, and you will see what I mean.
Being that Sandy holds up in the wet, it is one of my go-to spots for Winter riding around Portland. So last year rumors started spreading that a new black diamond trail was going in. So on one Fall day, I headed over to Sandy to check out the progress. Immediately I was blown away, and I as inched my way down the start of the trail, I ran into the builders who encouraged me to come to walk the rest of the track.
The Trophy Cup is back every Tuesday at the Portland International Raceway aka PIR. It's that time of the year that Portlander's dust off their Cyclocross bikes and prepare for a long season of riding bikes in the circles.
Last year I raced every Trophy Cup Race but this time around I've decided to opt out, shoot photos, and hang with friends. I had a long season of racing Mountain Bikes (more on that later) with one race to go. I am all raced out but always stoked to check out the action, shoot photos, and hang with friends.
Below are a video and some photos I shot of the first race of the year. Enjoy!
Semenuk and Rupert Walker are now officially five years deep into our Raw 100 series. For their latest chapter, they took their efforts to Utah. Though the landscape in this Raw 100 may be reminiscent of Red Bull Rampage, their inventive and manicured lines transformed the iconic freeride area into a brilliant slopestyle playground. For the uninitiated, Raw 100 videos feature one hundred seconds of all-thriller, no filler action: no slow-mo, no soundtrack. It’s a showcase for the best riders and filmmakers in the world.
