Vital RAW - Lee Jackson Whacks Whistler + Norco Aurum Bike Check 21

Lee Jackson gaps and slaps the trails of Whistler's lower mountain.

Here's what AJ Barlas noted about making the video with Lee.

"We attempted to get a good mix of burly gap lines and fast sections, with the one move that Lee was most worried, and psyched about being the gap on the slab of Schleyer (ender); a move that apparently only Nick Geddes has successfully hit. It's serious, and we were stoked to get it smooth. Lee was jittery the rest of the night. He did it the original day filming, but cased and wasn't happy with the clip, so he stewed over it for 3 days between the original shoot and the redo.

"A couple of interesting stats: Lee destroyed one wheel, blew a tire off the rim, flatted front and rear on separate occasions, blew pieces of his chain guide apart, taking bed rock with it all in 2 days time shooting."

    Slick riding, lee looks so controlled these days! That Schleyer gap, while burly as hell, is still an old line. A lot of riders used to take the gap riders right but those rocks haven't exactly changed much in the last decade..

    Amazing edit indeed, that last jump/bunny hop had minimal margin of error!!! :-O
    But looking at the first bike photo, this new Norco Aurum DH, reminds very much of this bike (albeit updated for 2015, a.k.a 650b wheels):

    Still, what's up with that? Lack of inspiration or if it ain't broken why fix it? Just change name and colors?

    I put it to you: Sea to Sky locs (Sunshine Coast,Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton) are better than locs from any where else!

    Remember the days of Shawn Marsh and his DH bike bunny hop to manual on a picnic table? I'm old, I do.

    Check out Chris Acrig's latest video. He should definitely be on the list of competitors.
