For BMX-ers and freeride mountain bikers in Utah, Park City’s dirt jump park is a little bit of heaven – just steps off of Highway 224. McGazza and Porter dropped in on opening day!
Here are the Gravity Casting Couch photos shot by Harookz. Porter, McGarry and the contest winner Lasse Jensen killed it in the Whistler Bike Park!

I was so exited about winning the Gravity Casting Couch contest. Usually I don’t win anything so I was super stoked about winning this contest. I had already ridden with Kelly and Porter at Camp of Champions, so we didn’t need to waste any time getting to know each other. When I found out that I won the sweet Gravity components I swapped my old beat handlebar with my new 800mm Gravity Light bars right away. After swapping the parts I went for a quick run on the mountain before the photoshoot, so I could get a feel of the new bars. I quickly got used to the width and sweep of the bars and was ready to rip with Kelly and Porter!
Shooting with Harookz was a huge experience. We talked about what runs I liked the best on the mountain, and decided that the we were going to shoot on Ninja Cougar, Fade to Black and A-line. Riding and shooting with the guys was super chill and fun. Lots of laughs and good times. We started out shooting some corners on Ninja to start out easy, then rode a couple of Fade to Black runs where we shot the step-up step-down. The A-line shoots were properly my favorites. Shooting the rockdrop, the S-corner and the wallride. Kelly and Porter are super nice guys. They told me a bit about the photoshoots they normally do, and other things like timing it just right when more than one rider is in the shot. Harookz is just an awesome guy. Super funny, and good at making it easy to relax and just focus on having fun, during a shoot!
I had a blast that day, and can’t thank the guys at Gravity enough for giving me such an awesome time!
Cheers from Denmark!
