Mountain biking can feel like a different sport on different terrain, but its all bound together by bike and rider. You progress with the changing environment. With Versa, the goal was simple: to maximize the diversity of landscapes Joel can ride your bike in visually and geologically in a 10 day road trip around BC.
Most of the time if you ask Joel what hes been doing, hell say hes been wrenching. Ill argue that what hes really doing, and what the film Versa does, is bring romanticism back to mountain biking. Its not about love, although theres some of that in there. Its not about some knight on a quest, although theres some of that in there too. Its about putting that extra effort into learning something more about yourself and the landscape around you and finding the beauty in it. And riding sick terrain too of course.
