Free Candy Tour // E6: Full Dust Warfare


The Free Radicals // Episode 6: Full Dust Warfare

Widespread drought and wildfires were ravaging British Columbia all around us. Our helicopter departed the landing strip in Revelstoke and we entered the smokey abyss that encompassed the valley. As we gained elevation, we suddenly found ourselves above the smoke. A landscape of jagged peaks appeared before us.

The helicopter set down on a knife edge ridge, where our friends were waiting for us. We unloaded our bikes, tagged in with our timing chips, and raced back down a narrow, powdery trail towards the smoke. This was full dust warfare at the Revelstoke 3-Day Heli Enduro. After the race, we headed to Nelson with our friend Nate “Forrealz” Hills and engaged in another skirmish.

Slab City is a single black diamond trail located at Sentiers du Moulin, a fast-growing enduro mecca located just 15 minutes outside of Quebec City, Canada. The trail bears its name from the off-grid Californian community and reflects the unique experience anyone will have venturing past the trailhead.
