Weekend Slayer – Episode 11 – Cumberland: The sleepy town of Cumberland BC has been slowly growing into a slice of mountain bike heaven, and we’re gonna see what all the hype is about! Mark Matthews calls the Comox Valley home, and he’s going to show us the goods that this bountiful part of Vancouver Island has to offer. A seemingly endless amount of trails (if you have the stamina to pedal to them) surround town, and there’s a very rad public dirt jump park that’s maintained year-round. (Thank you for the awesome dirt work Dylan King). We’re staying in town at Travis Lawrenuk’s house and have local shredder Stéphane Pelletier join us for a huge first day of riding the surrounding trails. The next day, we put our trail bikes in the shed and spend a day riding the public dirt jumps in town, and finish our weekend with an out-of-town trip to a dual-slalom trail followed by Mark’s secret jump line. Grab all of your rigs, and join us for an awesome time in Cumberland! Producer/Editor: Eric Lawrenuk. Cinematography: Graeme Meiklejohn.

Kaos Seagrave – Kaos Theory: Kaos Seagrave´s riding style on a bike is unpredictable, you never know what he´s gonna do next. Ever heard of the Chaos Theory? Also known as the science of surprises, predicting the behaviour of the “inherently unpredictable”. This is exactly what sparked the idea to collaborate with Kaos Seagrave on a new mountain bike edit incorporating the Canyon Torque frame design. The so-called Butterfly Effect – now widely referred to as Chaos Theory – supports the idea that the flapping of a butterfly’s wings could set weather systems in motion that eventually lead to a tornado somewhere else in the world. This head-scratcher came from the mind of MIT Professor Edward Lorenz in the 1960’s and since then has led to broader studies into these types of ideas. Taking our limited understanding of the Butterfly Effect notion and running with it – we figured that it’s fair to say that every whip, every shralp of a turn, every steezy move also makes a change. Pushing the limits forwards. Getting riders stoked. This is Kaos Theory. Cue some doodling, some wild holographic decal vinyl, and some experimenting with Lorenz Attractor diagrams (those swirls that show up when you image search Chaos Theory), and the whole project started to take shape. “This has been such an epic opportunity to work on a design project with Canyon. I’ve always loved playing around with my bike designs, kit designs, and merch. So to be able to bring some ideas to the table with Canyon and make a signature design is pretty darn dope.” – Kaos Seagrave

With Dorian, who followed and filmed me all week, we show how I experienced this race from a psychological point of view.

Ensō: At some point there seems to be a defining moment in life where you learn to let go. Sometimes, not by choice. And often times it comes to us as the illusion of defeat, while in reality, it was the very thing we needed to guide us to where we had to go. About a year ago, Aaron and I came across the Buddhist word, Ensō. This single word, described everything that we had been talking about for the last year or so. By definition, it represents and suggests cutting the desire for perfection and allowing the universe to be just as it is. Understanding that perfection doesn’t exist allows you to move through life gracefully free of any pressure. It opens the door to allow situations to unfold naturally, and to invite intuition and creativity to move through. For Aaron, riding is a great place to practice this concept. It’s a place that he can go where the universe can reveal these sort of secrets. In this film, we ride along with Aaron as he takes a journey into the idea letting go and simply just being.
