In dem neuen Edit der Hardtail und Komponenten Genies von Chromag zeigt Dylan Korba was alles auf einem Hardtail möglich ist. Auf den steinigen und anspruchsvollen Trail um Pemberton, BC kombiniert er Trials, Freeride und Trail Riding und lässt das ganze dabei unverschämt leicht aussehen. Sound an und zuschauen.
A key line feature in the North Rutherford Creek area transpired from our collective imagination and brought to fruition. Initially, I was inspired by a big boulder to use as an obstacle and when we scouted the area as a group, the guys gave me some input on how cool it would be to create a line down the ridge leading directly to the rock. This line ended up taking me most summer to build and I think was a bit of an emotional one for the whole team. We each had our struggles on that line. I had a really big crash – that thankfully only ended up in some bruising for a few weeks. Due to the length of the project and the dynamic requiring a multitude of takes to film a segment (not a single session) we faced challenges with lighting and seasonal weather changes. We faced smoke, rain, sun and snow all in about a 4 week window and I only had weekends to film! So that line was a major push, and I didn’t quite get what I wanted, but the big rock isn’t going anywhere. In the end this project provided space for my self exploration. I was really happy to prove to myself that I could still ride uniquely enough to be part of something. I am super thankful that Cookie and Chromag were on board to set this opportunity in motion!
Re-introducing Dylan Korba. Don’t call it a comeback (actually maybe do?) What happens when you befriend someone as an adult and discover a secret talent from their earlier life? Maybe not secret, but something they’ve moved on from as life marches on? Most of the time it’s fodder for reminiscing and jokes about the good old days long since past by. But not with Dylan. Dylan is different. I knew he had it in him, but I was still in awe watching him do it. Bravo bud!
