This feature takes us behind the scenes with Sven Martin, one of the most recognized downhill dirt shooters at the world's premiere mountain bike festival, Crankworx. This week-long biking event in Whistler BC, attracts the world's top riders from every event, including downhill, cross country and slopestyle, just to name a few. With over 25 thousand spectators, it's become the largest mountain bike festival ever.

The high speed action makes it extremely challenging to capture through photography and video. Those who are aren't prepped and ready will miss the shot. The combination of the event's high-paced action, and difficult to access locations only adds to the intensity. Needless to say, Sven has mastered this process, making it look easy. Press play to catch the chaos and see him in action, doing what he does best.
