STEPHEN SHANNON/RED BULL ILLUME

FARWELL CANYON,

BC, CANADA

Shooting in Farwell Canyon – a location

he describes as “the birthplace of freeride

mountain biking” – has been a longtime

ambition for British Columbia native Steve

Shannon. Following several failed attempts,

the photographer finally realised his wish

in April last year, accompanied by local

shredder and bike mechanic Cory ‘Coco’

Brunelle. “Hiking out to the top of the line

pre-dawn, we were greeted by a beautiful

sunrise over the Chilcotin River,” he says.

“Having grown up nearby, Coco is very

comfortable riding down the chutes of

Farwell, letting out a little style as he

hurtles to the bottom.”
