Typing “Grin n Holler” into Google will yield you many results of the huck trail in Squamish – but most, if not all, of these photos and videos are of riders on downhill bikes. Wielding his trail bike, Paul Stevens doesn’t care what the general consensus is. It could be something different in the British method of measurement, or it could be that Paul is very skilled on any bike.

Airtime was optional, but Paul didn’t back down.

Popping off roots and rocks, Paul makes it look easy…and fun.

Matt Dennison – STILL faster than you.

Charging straight ahead. Matt and Kaz commend Paul for always wearing flashy, easy-to-photograph clothing.

You cant help but grin n’ holler when someone hits these jumps on a big bike. But what about on a small bike?

We don’t know how to pronounce Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, but we do know that Paul sh7reds.


Anyone know how to pronounce the 7?

      @RMD:disqus My bike is a Ghost Cagua 6550. It rips!

        Thanks. That bike does look like seriously great value (Reverb dropper post, full xt, available at MEC for $3600).

        Great to see it ridden so well!

    Great riding Paulo (and shooting, Matt – and Kaz). But, but…where are the goggles, I thought this was an Enduro ride?
