Video: Back to Basics Episode 1

by admin

As the current presenter of Pinkbike and a member of the mountain bike industry for 11 years, I have taken many different approaches to the sport since I started cycling in 2011. At the time, I lived in Colorado where cross country was booming, enduro racing was just my thing I remember him being covered in bruises after throwing myself on a singletrack in the Rocky Mountains. Since those days, I’ve migrated north and worked my way through the bike industry, working in a shop in Whistler for 8 years before finding my way here at Pinkbike.

While I’ve immersed myself in many aspects of the sport, I’ve definitely skipped a few key steps along the way and haven’t really explored any particular path in the world of cycling.

In this 4-part series, Back to Basics, I stay true to myself. Individually, I’ll go over some mountain biking basics to help me become a more confident rider, including some tips and tricks on the bike. I hope these lessons will be helpful to you or someone you know along the way.

Thanks to our friends at Mountain Biking BC, we’re going to 8 of the most popular bike parks and cycling spots in British Columbia to ride some of the most talented and influential women in our sport. Each location offers a unique classroom and cycling ground to learn from the best in the business.

For me, and maybe for you too, cycling is more than riding a trail. Before I can even begin to think about other topics we’ll be covering in this series, like going fast, getting more delay, looking like a professional camera, and my work, it all starts to piss me off. Upset, something we all have experienced quite often before. In this first episode, follow Claire Bouchard as she shares her experiences as a coaching instructor and former World Cup cyclist. From there, we build on the connection I learn from Hailey Elise, a professional photographer here in British Columbia and also a professional mountain bike racer.
