Added a new video The Bensink Compound - former 4X World Champ and Aussie BMX'ers hit up the Netherlands' sickest backyard 7/22/2014 12:23 PM
C138x104

During beautiful summer evenings I ride a lot at Niels Bensink's backyard, but hardly ever film anything, so decided to bring my camera one time instead of my bike. Unfortunately Niels himself was out with a broken wrist, but a few other guys were more than happy to shred before my lens... Check former 4X World Champion Joost Wichman and Australian BMX pro's Corey Frieswyk, Matt Juster and Josh Callan ride the amazing Bensink Compound at golden hour. Enjoy!

I proudly present my 2013 action reel. Where 2012 was in a way an experiment for me and the first year I tried to make this filming thing work, 2013 was a lot more serious: I've worked for dozens of clients on all kinds of projects in no less than 8 different countries. It was in (almost) every way more amazing than I dared to hope. I've met lots of awesome people and been to the most amazing places thanks to my camera and I'm very grateful for that. Thanks so much to all my clients and everyone involved, it is because of you I get to do what I love on a daily basis. I'm now more eager than ever to learn and improve, and I can't wait to find out what the future will hold. Bring on 2014! Shot in the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Slovenia and Spain. Tech: mostly a Canon 60D with Canon / Sigma glass, Glidecam HD2000, GoPro Hero3 Black Edition. http://www.larsveenstra.com http://facebook.com/LVmedia

Awesome! Looks like a great film that also shows the lifestyle and people of the biking scene, instead of just non-stop action. Love the aerial shots too, decent work guys.

God, once undeveloped countries develop, we westerners won't ever be on a podium again. Look what they can do with basically nothing. Holy Sh*t

When on Vancouver Island with a few friends last month, I couldn't ride the downhill race because of a broken foot, so I decided to just film Bearclaw's Invitational instead. Since I was limping, I didn't get any glidecam shots or anything (actually, it's all handheld) but I still enjoyed watching the boys and making this short edit :)

I went to Crankworx Whistler with the main purpose of riding, but when I crashed and couldn't ride any more for the rest of the week, I had to fill my time with other things. Filming the Teva Best Trick contest for example. Enjoy!

Added a new video Leo Combee - Finding Lines 7/31/2013 2:04 AM
C138x104

Leo Combee is, apart from a good friend of mine, one of the Netherlands' most talented mountain bikers. With (junior) National titles in cross country, fourcross and downhill this guy knows a thing or two about riding a bike. And being Nico Vink's (Belgian downhill legend) teammate for the last few years doesn't hurt your skill set either. Leo's high speed, effortless style and ability to do skatepark-like tricks on a downhillbike, are but a few of the things that make it really entertaining to watch him ride. So as a filmmaker (and downhill mountain biker myself), I knew I had to do something with Leo's abilities. There was a video just waiting to be made. The time finally came at the end of June 2013, when we made the trip to Bikepark Winterberg in Germany to film for two days. The result of those two days, and a lot of editing, is the video you're about to watch. A collaboration between two friends that shows how much fun you can have on a downhill bike, on any kind of track, when you think outside the box and try to find new lines. Enjoy! Video created by Lars Veenstra, http://larsveenstra.nl & http://facebook.com/LVmedia Leo would like to thank his sponsors Hope and Scott for their support in the 2013 season.

Boom. It looks like the 661 Subgear, but with a back guard, so its better I guess. What I want to know is: is there a long sleeve version with elbow pads as well?

When running around Riva two weeks ago filming the enduro race (vimeo.com/65713065) I actually had a lot of time to film other stuff at the bike festival too. Didn't really have a plan, just shot everything that looked good and decided what to do with it a few days later. So here is the result. Enjoy!

Added a new video The Blast #1 2013, Belgian Ardennes 4/8/2013 5:10 AM
C138x104

An impression of the first Blast Epic Enduro Weekend of 2013 held on the 28th - 31st of March 2013. The Blast is a multi day, non serious Enduro Mountainbiking event for a small group of people. In 2,5 days the riders will do 8 timed stages and ride approximately 100km of sweet Enduro trails. The entire group stays in the same accommodation, with shared meals and good times by the campfire. For me personally, filming this event was quite a challenge because I didn't just had to film the riders, but also take photos and ride the same stuff they rode, only faster and with a heavy backpack full of gear. Quite a struggle at times and very exhausting... But I loved it, and will definitely do it again!
