Chasing Summer: Rob-J in South Africa
Does it get any better than losing yourself down endless flowing trails? What about when you add sun on skin, a cooling breeze as you ride and a backdrop that will take your breath away every time you look up. Now you’re talking.
That’s exactly what motivates Rob-J to travel the world and capture edits that make mountain bikers itch to get out there and explore. Together Rob and videographer, Sebastian Doerk, have built a reputation creating inspirational riding films shot in exotic locations across the globe. For their latest production, Chasing Summer, they escaped the European winter and headed down to South Africa to team up with local extreme sports photographer, Craig Kolesky.
Back in 2002 Rob packed his bags and bought a plane ticket to Cape Town. That was the start of a journey that would launch his career as a professional mountain biker. Since then he has been back time and again to revisit the place where it all began. Take just one look at Chasing Summer and it’s easy to see why.
