This isn’t a team made up of stars of the future, they’re the stars of right now. With Anton “Cleanlander” Thelander from Sweden, Belgium’s Thomas “La Frite” Genon and German Peter “Party” Henke, the Canyon Factory Freeride Team competes together at the biggest contests around the globe and has taken the gravity scene by storm. After taking inspiration from their travels and riding some of the best slopestyle courses in the world, the guys wanted to do something completely different for a new film shoot they did back in June.
Hooking up with cameraman Lukas Tielke from Peoplegrapher and course building experts, Mellowpark, the team set about transforming Pete’s home spot. Surrounded by still water and tranquil forest, it’s the last place you’d expect to stumble across huge kickers, berms, tables and transfers with multiple line combos on offer. In this natural setting, the guys really let loose and showcase their massive talent. The style isn’t restricted to the tricks, this film is shot in trademark Tielke fashion to get you stoked to go out and ride, as all good edits should.
