Bas van Steenbergen, Breathtaking Style

Words by Mind Spark Cinema | Images by Mind Spark Cinema

Green River is one of the few locations in Utah that has been a proving ground for Mountain Biking. Over the past decade, hundreds of riders visited Utah to tackle the terrain and show there style. Its been unfortunate in the past couple of years, Green River has been viewed as “played” or “overdone”. Bas has always wanted to give it a shot, and so this fall we drove south to Utah to give it our best.

While it may have been the shoulder season for mountain biking, Utah was a great escape from snowy Canada. We spent 10 days waking up at sunrise, filming, going back to the Super 8 for breakfast, digging, then filming at sunset. Our trip had the unfortunate ending of Bas separating his shoulder on the last hit we built, luckily we still had plenty of footage to create “Shoulder Season”
