Brett Rheeder, This is Home

I jumped at the opportunity to go to Mount Albert Ontario with good friend Harrison Mendel  for two weeks and document the life of Brett Rheeder, one of the worlds top mountain bike slopestyle athletes for Shimano. A custom course was created for the project which would allow Brett to showcase some of his best tricks and show the world what is possible on a bicycle in a place as flat as Ontario.

My home has always been in Ontario. I wanted to tell the story of where I live and where i come from, my whole family lives within 50km of each other in southern Ontario. My cousins let me use their farm land to build the course. We hoped the dirt was going to be good, but as soon as we dug into the ground we know it was gold and the best part is it’s only 4kms from my house. I know that Ontario is not ideal for mountain biking, but with a little work I feel it can be, and that’s what I wanted to show. For me, This is Home - Brett Rheeder
