VIDEO: Building Masterpiece MTB Trails in Northern California

Most people take trails for granted, which sort of makes sense because a well-built trail almost seems to be a natural feature, spontaneously erupting from the dirt for us to hike and bike on.

Satchel Cronk and Leah Lind-White are two of those committed few, building spectacular trails in Northern California's loamy dirt. Take a look behind the scenes and learn more about the artistry that goes into trailbuilding.

When it comes to creating truly standout pieces of mountain bike cinema, it’s not just about the talent in front of the camera – getting shots like those found in took some pretty nifty movie magic. Thanks to our friends from Peacemaker Filmworks, a camera outfit based in Vancouver that takes over when “getting the shot” turns into an engineering problem, we were able to capture Brandon Semenuk and Paul Genovese like never before. Peacemaker brought lots of high-tech toys, including FPV
