With Alex ‘The Don’ Rankin behind the lens shooting two mother huckers, Adam Brayton and Nico Vink; magic was bound to happen. Enjoy the action as the two of them smash up lips and trails built by Brayton in his back yard of the Lake District. Amazing riding captured by the pan and zoom pioneer.
After putting in a few weeks of day and night shifts digging tracks around the Lake District, Adam invited Nico and Alex to spend a few days filming and hucking. Alex hasn’t disappointed, capturing the guys riding on the edge and pulling off some pretty big jumps along the way.
This “…Ultimate Hucker Sender” edit by Alex has a distinctively “Earthed” and raw edge to it – no fancy gadgets or slo-mo’s – just flat out loose riding.
“It was really good to catch up with Nico and Adam for this project, we laughed a lot and got lucky with the UK winter weather, but the speed of Adam on his local tracks was insane and had us all with jaws dropped.” – Alex Rankin
P.S. Nico rides all the tracks blind – not bad ey?!
