Take a look behind the scenes of my latest film "The Slabs".

This behind the scenes film takes a closer look at exactly what went into filming my latest ride down the Infamous Dubh Slabs on the Isle of Skye. From walking and planning the route down the hill with my childhood friends Doug and James, to the challenges of reaching and scrambling up the mountain with heavy backpacks full of FPV drone batteries, and how it felt to be riding my bike along the edge of the exposed cliff tops before heading straight down the final slab.
With many of our overseas filming plans cancelled as a result of recent times myself and the crew decided to look a little closer to home for our latest film.
I am a big fan of rock climbing and have been inspired by the various men and woman who set new routes and test themselves on some amazing faces around the world so I set out to find some challenging Slab Rock routes on my home Island of Skye with an aim to ride them in a continuous line and test what was possible on my bike. The remote Dubh Slabs rising out of Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Black Cuilin ridge provided some of the steepest terrain I have ever ridden as well as an amazing back drop for the film.
The remote location and steep face forced us to think outside the box and meant we had to move away from traditional filming techniques, with us opting to shoot the entire film using GoPros mounted on myself and an FPV (First Person View) racing drone.
