Racing Winter

Shawn Neer "sicko rider" makes his an annual pilgrimage north for one final rip on the high alpine singletrack. I made a short film *mountain film selection* about his path to become a pro rider and his connection to the trails in BC. This is part of an ongoing series documenting the Yeti Tribe (bike freaks).

The short film focused on how these uninhibited riding trips allow Shawn to reset and reconnect with the terrain that shaped him as a rider.

“Living in a van and riding every day in Whistler shaped me as a rider ”

There is no way to fake the authenticity of these locations, one must be present. This required lugging gear under our own power at first light to these trails.

Cabin Life

The irreverent cabin life moments were woven into the narrative as these images intersected his voiceover about his path to become a pro rider.
