NSMB: Hey Neighbour – Sterling Lorence
May 16th, 2012
Superb video from Matt Dennison and NSMB here featuring one of the sports most iconic photographers – “Sterling Lorence grew up on the North Shore. He lived there, he was schooled there, he played there, and when mountain bikes came into his life, he rode there. Sterling was a good rider with race results to and a list of conquered trails to prove it. However, it was his ability to use a camera to capture pivotal moments and the fundamental spirit of the North Shore history that have set him apart.
We tracked Sterling down one chilly and snowy February morning. We wanted to understand more about how the North Shore went from underground movement to world famous circus, and what part Sterling played in it. However, the morning turned into most of the day as we trundled around Pre-Reaper and Reaper on Cypress while Sterling passionately illuminated us on so many topics about the Shore. The knowledge, history and commentary that Sterling imparted on us that day could fill a book.”
