So our blog post today is dedicated to a group of young DH mountain bikers from right here in Western North Carolina. These guys are barely old enough to vote, but they are turning the local DH scene upside down with the creation of the sickest trails in the area, as well as the most high quality video production that anyone has done of this zone of the biking world.
Before I get into too much detail, watch this video:
There are three main characters that you need to know about here:
Sam Anderson- Sam is the visionary of the entire network of trails featured in this video. They are in his backyard. He has spent countless thousands of hours digging in the woods to create this playground, and it is the best DH shuttle riding within seven hours of Asheville. He does all of this around working towards an engineering degree from UNCC.
Chris Annesi- Chris is the producer. He is Sam’s roommate at school, and has an incredible eye for expressing the sport of mountain biking through his video camera. Sam and Chris have been ramping up their film efforts, and in one year it will culminate in a full length action film. More about that in a sec.
Nick Gragtmans- What can I say, Nick is my younger brother. He’s tall, lanky, and his voice cracks. He’s also one of the smoothest, fastest riders that you’ll see on any trail. His style is just sick and I know he has a Collegiate National Championship Title in him.
You’re going to see some cool things from these guys, so keep an eye on them. Their new project is entitled Finding Flow, and is set to drop in April 2012.
Be sure and “like” their Facebook Page and check out some of the videos of their progress. I’m sure the final product will be amazing.
Until next time, see you out there folks!
