Photographer Blake Jorgenson

Last summer we shot with pro photographer Blake Jorgenson in the Swiss Alps on a feature for Decline magazine that's coming out soon. Here's what Blake does in the wintertime...with our friends from Rossignol.

Wade Simmons-Prepares for Mt. Kenya!

Big Mountain guide Wade Simmons soon will be doing battle against some of the world's best riders climbing up and shredding Mount Kenya. He has lived the life of easy street for far too long! Eating high on the horse at the Topanga Cafe and chillin on the couch after easy rides to the store on his Flatline for bon bons just won't cut it! It is time for him to get back to the basics! Here is his story to the top!

What does Wade get to do the day after he gets home from Africa? Go to Costa Rica to guide our epic Pura Vida DH trips!

Wade reached into his helmet and pulled out a winner...

On a grey and cool mid-January day in Vancouver, Wade poured over a fat pile entries of the first Dear Wade contest and chose his top 10. As he promised, he reached into his helmet and pulled out the winner…Pedro Brajal from Portugal. “A big thanks to all who entered,” said Wade with his signature big smile and unshaven mug, “I hope that Pedro is pumped to ride big bikes in Costa Rica because I am!” Pedro walks away with 9 days of riding with Wade on Big Mountain Bike Adventures’ Pura Vida DH trip, a Dakine Apex pack, a Bell full-face helmet, Oakley shades, the use of a 2009 Rocky Mountain Flatline DH rig and a full set-up from Sombrio clothing. Congratulations Pedro! The 9 runner-up entries get a Sombrio jersey and Big Mountain t-shirt.

Thanks to all who entered and we’ll see you next year! More information on our Pura Vida DH trip, click here.
