Darren Berrecloth

Darren comes to the VIMFF stage to share his love for adventure and mountain biking.

Hailing from Parksville, BC, Canada, Darren Berrecloth has been widely regarded as one of the best freeride mountain bikers in the world, ever since he exploded onto the scene with a third at the 2002 Red Bull Rampage. With a wide range of podium finishes and magazine covers under his belt, Berrecloth is showing no sign of slowing down.

A hard-working athlete who puts lots of effort into building unique bike features, Berrecloth’s dedication to the sport is unmatched in the industry. Known for taking lines that other riders don’t even consider, his success, sheer guts and determination have seen him become something of a legendary figure – even more so since breaking his back in 2011 and returning to competitive riding for 2012.

He has also put his creative juices to good use, designing the Red Bull Berg Line course for the Winterberg event, as well as building one of the most progressive courses in the world for his Bearclaw Invitational. The course has now been built as a permanent feature on Vancouver Island and the Invitational itself featuring for several years as an epic gold-level slopestyle event on the FMB World Tour.

His creativity doesn’t stop there though, he also likes to mix it up in front of the cameras and his appearance in films such as Where The Trail Ends and North of Nightfall bears witness to this. Unable to stay still, Berrecloth has also started Global Epix, which will allow fans to ride alongside him while travelling to a wide variety of exotic and epic locations around the globe.

North of Nightfall

Director – Jeremy Grant

Hidden among the glaciers high in the Arctic Circle are mountain bike lines too incredible to ignore. Harsh temperatures, volatile weather and nine-month winters mean the area is normally devoid of human life. But each summer, this frozen landscape flourishes under endless daylight, revealing a spectacular ecosystem. Join Darren Berrecloth, Carson Storch, Cam Zink and Tom Van Steenbergen as they embark on an expedition to the top of the world to explore this relatively unknown land. In doing so, they discover a changing environment steeped in history along with challenging terrain unlike anything anyone’s ridden to date.

Forest Flow

Director: Ryan Kremsater
Length: 4:52 min
Year: 2018
Country: Canada

Lost in the forests of British Columbia, the history of freeride mountain biking can be read from the progression of relic features. Once part of epic trails, these features mark an era that has been lost to time and reclaimed by forest. Wooden features, log rides and skinnies intended to test the balance, focus and the nerve of riders were common. As the sport shifts towards faster styles of riding, trails built with challenging and skinny technical wooden features are becoming increasingly rare, replaced by berms, jumps and drops requiring more speed and less precision.

Both styles of riding are fun, but I cherish the old skinny trails that remain. The elevated ladder bridges, log rides and skinnies require a high level of focus, and control. The state of the flow required to ride these trails, where the outside world falls away, time begins to slow, and the mind becomes completely calm, certain in the control it has over the body, is seductive. To break mental concentration risks error, but the feeling of unbreakable focus is fulfilling.

In today’s world, where life is becoming increasingly fast-pace, I seek these moments of serenity more often. They offer an escape from chaos, and a chance to connect with myself on a deeper level. Whether I am riding on two wheels or one, the experience of riding these trails is special. The time and dedication the builders spent crafting each stunt, each work of art, is inspiring, and adds to the experience. To the builders that keep this style of riding alive, your efforts are appreciated.
