Blair Jones Rippin' It Up at Whistler Crankworx 2010
Rocking Whistler Crankworx 2010 with his crazy, custom off-road wheelchair designed for tearing up the trails, Blair Jones proves that nothing can hold you back when you have a determined and driven attitude. Conquering the mountain runs of Whistler, BC like a pro, Blair’s anything goes attitude is a total motivator to anyone who as ever had to overcome an extreme physical hardship in their life. Proving that the body is meant to go on and rock the landscape with no regrets or limitations. We give a shout out to Blair Jones for catching the wicked video, for rippin’ it up old school and for getting everybody’s adrenaline pumpin’.
Decked out with a couple of Drift HD170’s, a couple of ContourHDs and a single GoPro HD HERO, Blair did a number of runs down the mountain, catching some insane air, which you get to see first hand thanks to the placement of cameras at every possible viewing angle around the vehicle. The way this cat handles his converted wheelchair/cycle is incredible - proving that upper body strength is important, evident in his insanely massive arms! Landing some pretty sick jumps, you can almost feel the rush as he glides through the air - feeling your body tense as contact is made with the earth. With this type of ride, few epic bails are inevitable, but Blair managed to escape the carnage with little more than an ‘oops’, and the addition of a wicked battle wound, which can be seen up close at the end of the clip. The end of the clip has Blair heading back to the top on the gondola to do it all again… right on brotha!
Compiled by PointofViewCamera.com’s Mark Zealand, the footage is mixed to “Robot Radio” by The Tito Deville Band matching the vibe and energy of all the action.
We congratulate Blair on his wicked athletic achievements and appreciate having had the opportunity to see his ride from his point of view.
