Writing on Pinkbike, the crew said: “BC’s coastal rainforests are known to be some of the most lush and beautiful forests in the world, but this summer things changed.
“After months without rain, BC began to go up in flames. It’s not uncommon to see forest fires in the summer time in BC, but it’s usually in the arid, dry interior areas. Things were different this year. Everything was up in flames, even the coastal area and for the first time in our lifetimes we had a forest fire here in Sechelt – on the Sunshine Coast.
“Fire crews from all over were brought in to help reduce the spread of the fire and keep it away from Sechelt. After weeks of battling the blaze the burn was contained, resulting in 423 hectares of torched forest. This presented an opportunity we couldn’t pass up, it was time to take out the tools and load up the camera gear.”
Safe to say this edit will make you want to get out riding immediately – it’s one of those types – but spare a couple of minutes for the outtakes first. A whole load of these shots are A-graders that easily could’ve made the final edit as well.
