After putting in a few weeks of day and night shifts digging tracks around the Lake District, Adam invited Nico and Alex to spend a few days filming and hucking. Alex hasn't disappointed, capturing the guys riding on the edge and pulling off some pretty big jumps along the way.
This "...Ultimate Hucker Sender" edit by Alex has a distinctively "Earthed" and raw edge to it - no fancy gadgets or slo-mo's - just flat out loose riding.
"It was really good to catch up with Nico and Adam for this project, we laughed a lot and got lucky with the UK winter weather, but the speed of Adam on his local tracks was insane and had us all with jaws dropped." - Alex Rankin
P.S. Nico rides all the tracks blind - not bad ey?!
I was born and raised in the small valley town of Fernie, British Columbia. I started riding bikes at an early age and became addicted almost instantly. Even though I’ve spent the majority of my last few seasons traveling and riding unreal spots, I still find myself becoming homesick if I am away from my home turf for too long.
My idea for this video was to re-visit some classic Fernie zones and create some new features to get down on. When Mind Spark and Harookz said they were keen to come shoot, I knew it had to be the perfect Fernie experience. We couldn't have asked for better weather and I got lucky on a couple bad crashes. Overall, it was one of the best weeks of my life.
The features shown took weeks of hard work from myself and my close friends Dylan Siggers and Matt Dennis - huge thanks to those two homies. Also I can't thank Mind Spark and Harookz enough for their time!
