Hey everyone,

After returning from Kamloops, Brendan Fairclough and Thomas Vanderham joined us for some late season shooting in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. Recently, fellow Anthill filmmaker Jonathan Schramm wrote-up a blog on trying to find new ways to shoot one of the most filmed bike parks in the world. Enjoy the read: http://www.anthillfilms.com/content/2009/11/whistler-q-a/

Sterling Lorence was also on hand to get some stills, so make sure to check them out as well: http://www.anthillfilms.com/zenphoto/whistler/

Thanks!

Line poacher!

I heard Brendan overshot the landing and popped off huge on the following step-up. 12' up according to the Bike Patrol guys.

Im sure 100's of riders did it before me. The set up was trickier back then you had to really go fast and it was hard to pop (where you see the dust behind me to the right) and make the left turn into the drop. But landing is much more consequential now....more of an eroded drop now vs a slope back then.
Riding with Brendan in whistler this past summer was an eyeopener, he always looks good on a racetrack, but outside the tape even his dork riding skits and skills are amazing. Will be good to see in this film.
