Hey hey it’s Wednesday! Let’s get some movie time slotted into this busy week of slacking off…
First off let’s send healing vibes to Nico!
Nicolas Vouilloz – The Relentless Pursuit of Balance – Enduro
MTB legend and 10 times Downhill World Champion Nicolas Vouilloz takes on a new challenge for the 2013 season, taking part in the inaugural edition of the Enduro World Series. After a tough start at the first round in Punta Ala, Italy, where a flat tire puts him out of contention, Nico goes on to wind round two in Val d’Allos, France. His season keeps progressing on a high note with a 2nd place at round three in Les 2 Alpes. Follow Nico as he explains how he adapted his riding and training to enduro racing, and how he perfected his bike setup over the beginning of the season to reach his goals.

Biking in Logan Lake, B.C.
Flash back to the fall when I was still riding my XC bike. I went out to collect some super mellow riding shots a few evenings in September and finally sat down to piece these clips together. Nothing too exciting, but the light in the interior is so rad compared to the coast. No colour correction in any of these shots

Yak Ru extreme mountain biking race in Nepal
Yak Ru – Back to the Roots is an extreme mountain biking race dedicated to the village of Ghyaru in Manang of Nepal. The race hopes to revive the forgotten trails in the Annapurna region. Jeep road has reached Manang and Muktinath from both sides of the Round Annapurna trekking route. Which has reduced the number of trekking days in this region. Dawn Till Dusk has embarked on a mission to reintroduce the old walking trails in this region so that the old hiking charm can be restored.
The Line – the movie
So good we’re putting it in again…
Enjoy the full movie, from episode 1 to 5, in one edit!
Make you comfortable, have a beer and turn up the volume.

90 Minutes until Work
Sometimes it’s tough to get your daily dose of epicness, especially when you have a regular daytime job to do. On this sunny Tuesday morning I got up and on my mountainbike to fill up on endorphin before I go to work.

A great night at the Bike Festival in Rotorua at Yeah Boi Sick race #2.
A fundraiser for the James Dodds Foundation with some of the best riders in New Zealand including Gabby Molloy, Rob Metz, Justin Leov, Sam Blenkinsop, Jamie Nicoll, Matt Walker, Rotorua’s Hamilton Brothers, Carl Jones, Mark ‘Cabin’ Leishman, rocking the CX bike, Empire of Dirt’s Adam King and Chris Martin and Sam Shaw debuting the bike he’ll ride to defend his 2W Gravity Enduro title on Saturday (yet another wheel size…bit on the small size) – and Superman.
They celebrated a good man and a mate, gone too young…

Open Door to Solitude
Every couple of months, 68-year-old Ed Zevely rides into the Colorado high country to camp for weeks at a time—and he does it completely alone. Through thunderstorms, open meadows and treacherous passes, he finds his own patch of serenity. Far from the modern world, it’s a place where the only goal is to move and breathe, and where you can truly understand the difference between loneliness and solitude.

Several people showed me the brilliant floppy drive rendition of Tainted Love by Gigawipf here on YouTube so I thought it might be fun to add the vocal!
