Finally the Video is ready, take a bit but we want to release all in a Package, this is my „promovideo“ and also a short Trailer for the Bikemovie „El Faro“.
Norco Rider Angie Hohenwarter has been hard at work recently working with Philip Ruopp and Oliver Henke from VG Mediastudio on a film called “El Faro” The video stems from a trip with Tobi W to a beautiful Island called La Palma. With beutiful scenery, great trails and some amazing editing this film is going to be worth picking up.
The Norco Range and Vixa were recently highlighted in the November issue of Mountain Bike Action Magazine. Have a look at what they had to say, or even better yet, head over to your local newsstand and pick up a copy.
Norco are introducing four new mountain bikes for the coming season, all of which feature a refined version of Specialized’s FSR suspension platform – which the Canadian company license for use in North America – called Advanced Ride Technology (ART).
What is a better way to ring in the July 4th long weekend than by trying out some bikes? This year, after celebrating Canada day the Norco crew headed south to Blackrock Oregon for a demo day sponsored by the BRMBA. We started this demo last year and there was such a great response that not only did we return, we were joined by Giant, Kona, Felt, Diamondback, Transition, Cove, Evil, Brodie and 5-Ten. What a turnout!
The morning started out at about 9:30AM with a lineup 20 deep. By 10:00 the bikes were all out and people were smiling. The day started off in a flury and as people relayed in and out trying new bikes the general feeling was one of excitement and drooling over the bikes being ridden. With a selection of bikes featuring the Fluid LT, Empire, Vixa, Six, Shore and Aline the trails had met their match. Whether you were riding up and screaming down on the LT or hitting the gaps on the Shore, there was a bike for every person and a bike for every trail.
All day there were three trucks shuttling bikes and people up the mountain. Anyone who has ridden in Blackrock before knows that usually you are hoofing it to the top. What is usually a 1 or 2 run hill was for some people a 5 or 6 run day. Not taking advantage of the bikes, the shuttle and the company would be a mistake for anyone who could have come out but didn’t.
The day at Blackrock was probably the largest western Demo in a mountain biking environment. 2010 will undoubtedly be even bigger so mark your calender and will will we waiting for you next year.
Today was the start of something great! As we woke up the sun had not yet emerged over the horizon. The sky was growing a brighter blue with every passing moment and the anticipation was building for a great day of riding. First thing first, we headed out onto the I5 to drive from Redding to Santa Cruz. Once we arrived, Adam from MTBR.com and his friend Nelson were ready to show us the ropes.
Santa Cruz is made up of some smooth, fast trails. Weather you are an all-mountain warrior or a world cup racer, their is something for everyone to enjoy. With some fast singletrack, railed burms and a few kickers along the way. it is easy to see why some of the best riders in the world congregate around the Santa Cruz area.
Have a look at some pictures and you too, will see yourself ready for a trip to the area.
Darcy, Enjoying the trails
