CamelBak: Ride, Sleep, Repeat – A day in the life of Dane Petersen

Take a mental vacation with us back to happier times in the California with filmmaker Zach Youngberg and mountain biker Dane Petersen. Zach brings us some fast-paced footage of a day in the life of Dane Petersen. Follow Dane as he hits a variety of trails through the Sierra foothills.

 

 

ZACH AND DANE

Filmmaker Zach Youngberg and MTB pro, Dane Petersen have been shooting and riding together for the past four years. Dane picks the zones that he deems perfect for filming, and Zach follows with a camera in tow.  “Dane is super talented on a bike, which makes my job that much easier.” says Zach. They both have busy schedules, but they manage to collaborate once a year to create a compelling video that riders will get excited to watch. Videos always take place on a new trail and in a new area, which keeps things that much more interesting.

After you watch the CamelBak video “Ride, Sleep, Repeat” below, be sure to check out Soil Searching for a taste of how Dane can rip it up on all types of terrain.

Zach tells us, “I’ve been able to see Dane’s riding progress leaps and bounds through my lens. When I was in middle school, Dane was the free rider in our community, and I always saw photos of him throwing x-ups and no handers over big booters that he built. Fast forward to today and here I am working with him. It’s pretty cool to see how much things have changed. I’ve never been too talented on a bike, but I really enjoy the sport as a whole and filming it is my way of tying into the community.”
