To get you amped for the weekend, here are Flow’s favourite Insta-edits that we thought you’d better not miss.
Ladies first, Danielle Beecroft has been familiarising herself with the Whistler trails, ahead of competing at Crankworx next week. Here’s a teaser of an edit she’s been working on.
Josh Carlson was the 3rd fastest Aussie at the sixth round of the Enduro World Series, in Aspen, USA. Here’s a clip from a high-speed section of the final stage where he placed 7th. Finishing 25th, the father of two is looking fast and we’re keen to see how he goes this weekend in Whistler. We’ll have a bike check of his new Giant Reign up soon.
Australian Junior World Champs team downhiller Josh Clark put together an edit of on and off the bike action from his year so far including a lot of clips from his European summer.
Also in Europe, one of Dirt Art’s trail builders, Jack O’Hare, knows how to build berms and razz them apart!
Back home, Mittagong’s Harry Parsons won the RedAss Downhill NSW State round during the Illawarra MTB festival at Greenvalleys Bike Park last weekend, on his birthday! He’s looking fast leading up to the Cairns World Champs.
Matt Staggs is a young shredder from Sydney’s North who is very handy with a camera. He’s living the dream in Whistler right now, but here’s a teaser of an edit he did with James ‘Cannonball’ Hall before he left Sydney. You can watch the full edit along with photo story and interview here. James is racing EWS Whistler this weekend and we’ll have another Matt Staggs Visuals edit up soon!
Jordy Prochyra is also in Canada, placing a respectable 38th at the Mont Sainte Anne World Cup and now in Whistler (with half of Australia). Before MSA, he put together this edit from Cypress Mountain on Vancouver’s North Shore.
Graeme Mudd had a great qualifier at Mont Sainte Anne, making him the 13th last man down the hill. This meant he raced in the midst of the storm and had one of the loosest runs on course, finishing in 40th. He’s riding with the Athertons for Trek Factory Racing; stay tuned for the next Atherton Diaries episode from MSA.
It wasn’t just the downhillers who faced the brutal rocks of Mont Sainte Anne. We love this slow-mo of Nino Schurter and team mates hitting the Béatrice Rockgarden in the XCO World Cup. Of course, Nino won again, his 5th World Cup in a row, and has now wrapped up the series overall with one more round to go. Can he make it a ‘perfect season’?
An update from last week’s report about Remy Morton’s crash at Loosefest. Nice to hear from the big man himself.
And a flashback Friday to something we’re hanging out to see more of from RemDawg – #fakiefriday
