It’s officially fall, but in the Northwest an Indian summer has kept the stoke high and the trails dry. The leaves on the trees are starting to turn and make their long fall to earth, but that only makes two-wheel drifts more likely. The trails are even still dusty, with only occasional rains to dampen the roost ready turns.
The RAW100 series sparked a trend of music and slow-mo-free footage, with only the freehub's buzz and motion blur of the rider to give viewer the sense of speed and stir the stoke. In RAW45, Ben Wallace rides the steep, loam-filled trails near Victoria, British Columbia.
