Steve Vanderhoek | Gap hunting on the North Shore’s 5th Horseman

5th Horseman! A true Shore classic and one of my favourite trails around. Starting with flow and ending in tech makes for a brilliant lap every time. I first rode this trail when I was probably 15 years old with Ken Maude (OG Shore legend and one of the owners of Lynn Valley Bikes) when my Dad hired him to give me lessons as I was all balls and no skill and kept crashing! Fast forward to 31 and I wanted to try and ride it like i never have before…pulling for some fresh gaps. Definitely some inspiration from my most recent shoots with Remy Metailler. Thanks for watching and thanks to my fiancé Kelsey Toevs for the filming, editing and putting up with me… enjoy!
