Bas van Steenbergen l Shoulder Season

Bas may be a downhill racer by trade, but he’s also one of the most stylish riders on a bike right now. This Mind Spark Cinema video of him riding in Green River, Utah is a must-watch.

Green River is one of the few locations in Utah that has been a proving ground for Mountain Biking. Over the past decade, hundreds of riders visited Utah to tackle the terrain and show there style. Its been unfortunate in the past couple of years, Green River has been viewed as “played” or “overdone”. Bas has always wanted to give it a shot, and so this fall we drove south to Utah to give it our best.

While it may have been the shoulder season for mountain biking, Utah was a great escape from snowy Canada. We spent 10 days waking up a sunset, filming, going back to the Super 8 for breakfast, digging, then filming at sunset. Our trip had the unfortunate ending of Bas separating his shoulder on the last hit we built, luckily we still had plenty of footage to create “Shoulder Season.”
