VIDEO: MIXTAPE #1-BRITISH COLUMBIA

Abus athletes going big

 

In British Columbia, riding lines that were once reserved for ender shots in feature riding segments is just an average everyday occurrence. The scene is constantly pushing its level, and what was once considered exceptional is now just the norm. But what drives these riders in BC is not just about conquering challenging terrains but also about showcasing their unique style.

For many BC riders, the currency is style, and it’s what sets them apart from the rest. In this pursuit, riders like Caleb Holonko, Yoann Barelli, Kirsten Van Horne, and Jesse Munden inject their creativity into both familiar and unfamiliar terrains in Pemberton, Kamloops, and Vancouver’s North Shore. They have lost touch with what “normal” is, in the best possible way, as they continue to push the boundaries of what is possible on a mountain bike.

The energy and vitality of the BC riding scene reveal a lot about the culture of the sport. ABUS Mixtape series offers a modern snapshot of what’s really happening in some of the world’s most influential riding scenes by taking an artful look at the places where the action occurs.

In conclusion, BC riders have elevated the art of mountain biking to a whole new level by constantly pushing their limits and showcasing their unique style. ABUS Mixtape series provides a glimpse into the culture and energy of the BC riding scene and proves that riding lines that were once considered exceptional are now just the norm.
