He did the thing! The thing! Where you scrub so hard that your knuckle drags in the dirt! That’s the money shot of Bas van Steenbergen’s new collaboration with Maxxis, Deity and Hyper Bikes. A beautiful and remarkably understated showcase of what the BC-based master of all trades can do with some wet Utah dirt. But the video is wall-to-wall poetry, from the opener of him carefully picking his line down a ridge, to the postage-stamp salad bowl, to the rollers-to-gap line that you can somehow feel in your stomach as he sends it. So, take three minutes and twenty-three seconds to drink it in, and don’t let the knuckle-drag distract you.
When you’re done, get a glimpse behind the scenes and hear from Bas and co. HERE.
