Oxe Sports – Eliott Lapotre

I edited this video last week for a Mountain Bike Equipment brand called Oxe Sports. They make Mountain bike protective gear (Knee Pads, Elbow Pads, Back and Spine protectors, …)
Everything has been shot last summer in British Columbia Canada, in Sun Peaks Bike Park, around Lillooet and Farwell Canyon, Chilcotin River, which is by far, the most beautiful place we’ve been in that trip and French Rider Eliott Lapotre is shredding it!

J’ai monté cette vidéo la semaine dernière pour la marque d’équipements de VTT Oxe Sports. Ils conçoivent des protections (genouillères, coudières, dorsales, …)
Tout a été filmé l’été dernier en Colombie Britanique au Canada, au Bike Park de Sun Peaks, autour de Lillooet ainsi qu’à Farwell Canyon, Chilcotin River, qui est de loin, le plus beau spot ou on est allé pendant ce trip et Eliott gère parfaitement le terrain très pentu et poussiéreux!

Garibaldi Provincial Park & the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens

I went for a 2 days hike a few days ago in Garibaldi Provincial Park, and brought my recently purchased Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens with me. This lens provides 180° circular fisheye images on full-frame EOS models. In other words, a full 360 degree field of vision in the middle of the frame!

I wanted to share with you a few shots I took with this absolutely amazing lens!
This lens is razor sharp even wide open! I couldn’t get the full circular shot as I am using a Canon 1D Mark IV APS-H sized sensor (1.3x crop factor).

I didn’t use the 8-15 lens for the following shots, I just wanted to share those photos with you as Garibaldi Provincial Park is one of the most beautiful hike I have done in the area!

Eliott Lapotre visiting Whistler BC

It is a bit hard to work on Mountain Bike videos when we have so much snow outside, here in Val d’Isère. But here it is! A short edit I filmed with Eliott when he came to Canada last summer.

The trails are on Whistler Mountain Bike Park – Freight Train & No Joke.

Enjoy…

Road Trip to Kamloops

For those who don’t know, Charles Renaud-Roy, Eliott Lapotre, Mickaël Haxaire, Vincent Pernin and myself went on a Road Trip for 5 days around Kamloops last August to discover some Freeride trails, Sun Peaks, SilverStar and best of all and unplanned, we met Brad Stuart (Anthill Films – Follow Me) who has literally turned his backyard into the ultimate playground for mountain bikers !
