"So unbelievably excited to have my POV of Roca Verde make it to the semi-finals of @redbullillume! It's been a long time dream of mine to become a finalist in this prestigious contest."
Take a run down some MTB trail gold with Mountain biker, skier, surfer, traveler from Whistler, B.C - Steve Storey.
"Trail building has been a passion of mine for the last 7 years. Although these days it seems to be all trail maintenance! My 3 creations, Roca Verde, Salsa Verde, and Cerveza Verde were the result of a broken hand, a few willing friends and flats upon flats of beer. Who says nothing good can come of broken bodies and alcohol?!
My friends and I slaved over these lines for about 3 1/2 years. The building window in Whistler is short when you're also wanting to ride your bike plus the terrain we chose was not the most conducive to building these types of trails. It was damn beautiful though!
Long story short, we've managed to create something I, and hopefully others, love to ride. Every time I set tires on them I'm just as giddy and thankful they exist as the first time I did a top to bottom lap on them. This is the first time I've created a video featuring all 3 of them together in one day.
I may be biased but I get so pumped any day I'm out riding these trails. They're out there for everyone to experience and I hope all you out there watching get to experience it for yourselves firsthand some day. Enjoy the Verdes"
