Gnarly Push Up
Checking the lines

Long and short of it, Olly dislocated and fractured his arm a week later,
"worst dislocation the doctor had ever seen"
get well soon

Red Bull

Working for red bull reporter is hard but really fun

I went to the Weston Beach Race to cover what went on and make a short film for Red Bull. On the main event on sunday the weather was terrible, the vision and bad organisation led to a huge pile up on the first straight, Seven riders injured, multiple ambulances and a air ambulance. Ty Kellit (16) is still in hospital, but making a steady recovery. Get well soon

So i was left having to make a video with only footage from saturday, As this wasnt first planned i shot all saturday in mind that not much of the footage would need to be used. So i didnt have much footage, and not much of this was good.

Anyway, heres what i threw together:


Whilst i was there, i took a few photos:

Youth Riders
Kids 95cc

2 riders and a Gull

I got bored. went out one everning and rode my the local single track around my house.
I decided to make a short self filmed thing. I filmed it through a film camera to give it a sharper dof focus and a strange film look.

4a Jam

Went to 4A Jam after i got back from Whistler.

It was all pretty relaxed, pretty fun. I got out my camera for a few shots

Toby with a nice twist

Tito and Ferg borrowed my camera for a bit, so expect another Tito and Ferg Productions video in the long term

But in the short term, expect a whistler special video!

This weekend is the Summer Ride Festivle Held by Huckmonkey/MBUK/DMR whatever!

I should be going to that so hopefully will get some shots and a nice video!

Whistler Days

Although i haven't taken any photos on the mountain, i have taken some others

We had a knew arrival, call Max, it turned out we know all the same people and have probably met before, he rides junior 4X for Fly racing.

Last night/evening, we all headed down to a pump track, just 500 meters from our chalet!

Its absolutely crazy loads of pumps, some nice berms and lots of speed!

I got out the camera and get a few shots!

Whistler Arrival

A 9 hour flight of bad food and 20 annoying Spanish girls who couldent get enough of rory's beautiful face...

Simon on the plane

We eventually arrived in sunny Vancouver, a completely different city to anything in the UK, Busy Bustling and loomed over by tall snow capped mountains.

We began Our journey in a 2.5 litre V8 beast of a Truck/Van with Pete from Bear Back Biking throught the conjested grid roads of vancover.

Eventually we arrive on the shore road leading from Vancover straight up to Whistler through squirmish.


The Road was amazing, Tall Mountains on the right and the Sea/Lakes on the other, filled with huge islands that grew out of the sea. I was so tired, but had to keep my eyes open to try and see the amazing views.


Eventually, after about 2 hours, we arrive at our Challet, a tall 3 story building with various balconys, a hot tub, a huge garage and just 50m from whistlers largest lake!

We quickly unloaded our bikes, and started to build them up, before falling into bed, after a very long and very jetlaged day.

We woke at 6 in the morning, the jetlag messing with our minds, 2 hours of stoak up music ensued ready for the trails ahead. We Ran up to breakfast at 8 and stuffed bacon and cheese down our throats before heading to the trails.

The Trails where amazing, super smooth, not many breaking bumps and lots of features, jumps, gaps berms drops.

Hopefully some riding photos/videos to come...
