Day 13 Revelstoke > Rogers Pass > Heather Mountain

Monday 23rd April early start for a big day. Glorious weather so took my time and managed to slowly ride the entire Rogers Pass without getting off the bike to push! Nearly 4,500ft elevation in 70km! I felt like Forest Gump - must have been those painkillers I took in Revelstoke! Historical fact about Rogers Pass - it was finally completed in 1962! I share a birthday with a road! We both look a little worn out and in need of a lot of fixing up! Once at the summit it was very evident I had picked a good day. The massive avalanches of recent days were spectacular to see. I continued from Rogers Pass descending at speed until another slow climb at Heather Mountain finally took its toll and I had to call it a day. We drove on to Golden and had dinner at The Kicking Horse Grill. Amazing fine dining experience. The owner Martyn - Dutch guy and excellent host invited us to have a drink after the meal - several whiskeys and lots of fun latter we staggered back to the hotel. Those Dutch really know about having a good time! Cheers Martyn.

I do not hate helicopters. I am sure a spaecil project will come again and get me in a heli again. But as you see in my new Further trailer, my focus in snowboarding right now does not include heli's.As a pro I believe you need to be advancing the sport, or at least putting all your energy into advancing the sport. I have gone as far as I can with a heli. For me to keep progressing I need embrace a different approach. I learned and progressed more in two years filming deeper then I did over the last 8 years with a heli. Cheers,Jeremy
