The Triple Crown is loosely defined as the summiting of Vancouver’s Seymour, Grouse and Cypress mountains in one effort. There’s no rule regarding in what order the climbs must be done, only that they have to be completed in one day.
PIR was a mud fest so a black and white sepia look seemed to be a good fit. Also lots of gooey slow motion. The music choice is also painfully obvious - I'm only embarrassed to say I didn't think of it first. Not really anything subtle about this one - but it seems in cyclocross, subtlety buys you nothing!
Thanks to Jamie for the Primus song idea & Matt for his death defying GoPro bike cam work.
