5th Horseman on the North Shore holds a special place in Steve Vanderhoek's heart. He said, "I first rode this trail when I was probably 15 years old with Ken Maude (OG Shore legend and one of the owners of Lynn Valley Bikes) when my Dad hired him to give me lessons as I was all balls and no skill and kept crashing! Fast forward to 31 and I wanted to try and ride it like I never have before: pulling for some fresh gaps."

So that’s how you’re supposed to ride it! Some crazy lines in there executed beautifully.  I nicely shot and edited as well.

I ran into Steve on Saturday, he mentioned pulling the measuring tape on the Damo's gap - 38' out and 15' down!

That was a treat to watch! Love his style on the bike. Some properly WTF moments in that edit! Huge props to the riding and film crew.

This is so much scarier to watch when you're familiar with those sections.
