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.
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. "
