Ultramontane No. 05 and the complete Dudes…

March 29 2012



The Ultramontane videos are epic. I don't use that word lightly, it's vague and refers to anything from 'rad' dirt jump action to mundane XC mileage or a big wheeled bike from a behemoth American manufacturer. In this instance I'm not going for the dictionary definition either, it is a 'heroic deed' but released in short episodes, there's no Titanic style boredom involved. This is action and art of the highest order, a challenging concept that Connor Macleod and Derek Dix have delivered in all conditions. The best thing? It's not all about the film, Dix complements every edit with a collection of great photography, capturing a story that gives the video more meaning. I really hope people don't just watch the video, fantastic though it is, it's only half the experience. We've particularly enjoyed the concept as riding in winter is something we all do in the UK, we don't have the terrain, but seeing an Orange Five go from Halifax to the slippery rock of South Western BC is complete inspiration. The guys film and shoot this series throughout the winter, this isn't media sat there and waiting to be used, it doesn't get fresher. So watch the video, follow the links, and I hope you enjoy flicking through the edits as much as we did. Spectacular.
