Commencal bikes has just dropped a new video on their YouTube channel, and it's a must-watch for anyone who loves freeriding and trail shredding.
The video features none other than Brendan Howey, a Canadian rider who's been tearing up the trails for almost 15 years now. In celebration of his 30th birthday, Howey treated himself to some epic freeride lines and a fast and flowy trail, all captured on camera by the talented team of Rupert Walker, Clay Porter, and Calvin Huth.
The video is called "HWY 30," named after a piece of trail Howey built by hand for the coast segment of the video. It's wide like a highway and fittingly, he was 30 years old when he built it. The video showcases Howey's incredible talent and style on a bike, as he navigates through some breathtaking scenery in British Columbia.
In an interview, Howey said, "For me, this project was like a bucket list project. I feel super lucky to have worked on another video with Rupert, and then to get Calvin and Clay on it as well was the icing on the cake. I can't thank them enough for working on this little (big) project."
The cinematography is nothing short of stunning, with Walker, Porter, and Huth bringing their A-game to capture every jump, drop, and turn in all its glory. The video is a testament to the incredible talent of everyone involved, from the rider to the camera crew and everyone in between.
If you're a fan of freeriding, mountain biking, or just adrenaline-fueled adventures in general, you absolutely have to check out "HWY 30." It's a celebration of everything that makes the sport so exciting, and a showcase of some of the best talent in the business.
Thanks to Commencal bikes and Sun Peaks Bike Park for supporting this incredible project, and a huge shoutout to Brendan Howey, Rupert Walker, Clay Porter, and Calvin Huth for creating something truly special. We can't wait to see what they come up with next!
