Logan Peat lives with four-time Red Bull Joyride Champion, Brandon Semenuk, at his home on the Sunshine Coast. Training on a private course is one thing, competing in front of the crowd at Crankworx Whistler is another.
The video is the third and final episode in a trilogy of stories from TELUS Optik Local and Crankworx, Whistler’s defining celebration of mountain biking.
“(Crankworx) has definitely been up on the pedestal for me the whole time and to believe that we get to ride in it, it is just crazy,” say Peat as this story aspiration and inspiration opens.
The video brings viewers to the tiny town of Sechelt, population 8,500, where Peat and his crew of elite riding friends spend their days building trails and practicing tricks as they strive to become the best in the Super Bowl of all Slopestyle competitions, Red Bull Joyride, held at Crankworx in Whistler each August.
“The Coast is definitely small. You’re not getting food anywhere after 9 o’clock. We’ve got one bar, no girls, but we’ve got bikes,” says Peat.
This year Peat placed fifth at Joyride and was among the only riders to execute a clean, complete run before the crowd of 30,000 people, proving his dedication clearly pays off.
