Gene Upshaw was NFL hall-of famer and head of the NFL Players Association…but he was much more than that. And the Gene Upshaw Memorial Foundation honors his legacy through their support of the Tahoe Forest Cancer Center. And, one of the ways the Foundation raises money is through an annual golf tournament that brings in top former NFL players like Marcus Allen and the greatest female golfer of all-time, Annika Sorenstram. First Tracks was brought in to raise awareness of both the Cancer Center and the Tournament in one video…Check it out:
The All Women Sport Camp kicked off 3 years ago and this great event keeps getting bigger and better. Specialized is now on board at the title sponsor and the women who take part have the opportunity to work with some of the top instructors in their fields including Marla Streb – former X-Games and World DH champion and recent inductee in to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. Check out some of what went down during a beautiful weekend at Norhtstar at Tahoe, on Lake Tahoe and on the road up to Donner Summit…
Dylan and Ethan are a combined 15 years old. That’s about the age I started snowboarding. And, already, they’re doing some things I’ve never done (and never will do). That’s ok, it’s all about having fun anyway (that’s what I keep telling myself). First Tracks only got to shoot with Dylan and Ethan for one day this season, but they picked up a few shots here and there on their own and out at USASA Nationals (where they both made the podium) and we put together these fun edits for them – check it out!
We have almost as much fun filming with Lexi as she does riding…Even when she ends up in the frigid waters of Lake Tahoe, she still has a smile on her face. So once we got her out, we didn’t feel bad laughing. Lexi still has a lot of filming left, but check out some what she’s been up to in her 2013 teaser. Her full video part will drop sometime this summer.
First Tracks spent a beautiful August weekend at Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort with the All-Women Sports Camp. This was a cool event — participants could stand-up paddle, take part in an open-water swim, go for a mountain bike ride with world champion Marla Streb, road bike above Donner Lake, or compete in a mountain run up Northstar. They could also select from a host of great classes and seminars. Wow.
Capturing all that activity wasn’t easy. See for yourself; the 4-minute trailer is below, and here’s the 1-minute version.
