I have always had this secret dream of mine - a nerve-racking, terrifying and absolutely exhilarating dream that I haven’t told anyone. Until now.
Like most, I’ve sat and watched endless amounts of bike videos online, day dreaming about one day having a little shredder edit of my own. I’ve secretly planned with whom I want to ride with and to what kind of song we’d be shredding. Never thinking it would actually happen, I’ve kept it hidden, but well treasured, in the back of my mind for years. That is, until the unexpected happened this summer, when a friend and I got invited to participate in a MTB video contest. Suddenly, my little box of ideas, dreams and shreddit songs popped wide open and started filling my head with rad riding ideas - scenarios which in real life were pretty damn impossible. Thing is, when dreams turn reality, your ideas have to follow. Realising that neither of us could throw rad tricks nor send massive hucks, we had to accept our limitations and instead create an edit based on our own abilities, on our own uniqueness.
So here a little insight to how it all happened and why we chose the idea that we did. And although there are no backflips or no-handers insight, hopefully we managed to create something just as cool. A story we all share. Simply that of two friends riding bikes, having fun and making life way more exhilarating that just your average 9-5 routine.
