“I’m someone who loves to laugh and have a good time with my people, so a good time on the bike for me is just riding a great spot, with great people and no pressure. Growing up we would have a camera out almost every sesh, no matter if it was to make something serious or a goon video. I don’t race or compete because that isn’t my vision of what MTB is to me. I like having my own vision and trying to create it and show people what I think is cool, rather than just trying to be better than someone else on a certain day.
I live between Duncan and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, so I’m central to a lot of amazing riding. We shot this video mostly in Duncan. I love any trail that’s pinned with rad corners, jumps, and some steeps. Either super tacky or super loose. The CAPRA Shred is a fast, capable, dialed, and solid beast. I find a coil will almost always feel nicer than an air shock. I think coil feels more natural and can make a bike feel more capable. On my downhill bike, I run a little stiffer coil since I’m mostly riding bike parks or jump lines, so the stiffer coil is better in those places. Whereas, on my trail bike I go a little lighter to sit in the bike a bit more, and have it respond to the roots and more tech style trails.”
