To date, Alaska is one of the most uncharted biking zones in North America. Offering High alpine trails with views of the ocean, volcanoe's, Mt. Mckinley and the midnight sun, Alaska is the prime location in which to film this project.
In recent years many extreme sport athletes have spent much of their time in Alaska searching out the next big line to ride and film. However, the free ride mountain bike community has yet to discover Alaska. As local guides, production crew and riders we have spent the past 10 years searching out areas for this project. We are quite literally pioneering Alaskan free ride mountain biking.
Alaska Downhill Brigade (ADB) started in the fall of 2012 with a small, self-funded budget, a few cameras, some local riders and one day of filming at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood Alaska. After a 16-hr day (and many more hours of editing) we submitted our first edit to the 2012 Alaska Adventure Film Festival. Out of 15 films, JGS took home first place. At this point, we decided to take ADB to the next level. Since the first video release we have also won other awards including the Avid Chasing Trail contest on pinkbike.com and bravest award from vitalmtb.com.
