Canucks and Bike Logging

Published on September 18, 2012,

Well here’s to gearing up for Interbike and Rampage which I leave for in just under 2 hours.  But before I go, I’ll shed some insider knowledge on my last couple days.  Things started rolling when I had a chance to link up with Margus Riga for another one of our single day shot scrambles.  And not to sound surprised but being good Canadian boys that know how to put their heads to the grindstone (not too sure how that saying goes).  We managed to pull together one of the coolest images I’ve had all year.  For the past few seasons I have been looking for the proper set-up  to air into a stump, breaking it in half, and in an ideal world,  land safely on the other side.  Some how the stars (and stumps) alined on Friday we made it happen.  The day bore a handful of quality images but nothing came close that first timber topple. 35 foot long and not so low, back tire cruising right through the center of termites Bob’s Birch Brothel… Nothing quite like it.  Oh and best of all I avoided becoming a Dirt Squirrel, landing rubber side down, Bonus!  It’s been a while since I have looked at an image that got me proper excited. Making the most of one day indeed.

And that bring us to Yesterday… where I had the interesting and rare opportunity to saddle up with me buddy Derek Frankowski to work on a marketing concept piece for the Vancouver Canucks.  There are big plans for the work we put in, but until I see them lit up, pre-game, on the JumboTron I’m not saying anything.  It was the first time since wrapping up Life Cycles that Derek and I have shot biking, so it was awesome.  We spent the day working small pockets on the trail “Power Slave” in Nelson.  First things first, the forest above Nelson are insane.  I spent the day mingling with Giants.  The trees are enormous!  I could dabble more on the shoot but I gotta get on the road to Vegas.  Interbike and Rampage is on the doorstep so it’s go time!
