Miranda Miller, 2011 Season Recap

Miranda Miller 2011 season recap. David Fournier photo

Back in the early days of 2011, we approached Miranda to see if she was interested in being the subject of the 2011 SORCA (Squamish Offroad Cycling Association) video series. We were aiming to get more ladies out racing downhill in town, and what better way to do so than showcasing the trails raced, with one of Squamish’s best female downhillers.

Unfortunately for Miranda, the videos had the series sponsor logos on them (only one of which is one of Miranda’s—awkward…). In the end it worked out, as I think everyone realized what we were trying to do. As a result though, we wanted to give back to Miranda, and her fantastic sponsors and supporters (seriously, thank you guys!), and so ensued the trail chatter for the idea of a 2011 year recap video.

So here we are, about to endeavor into the 2012 season, with a quick little recap of Miranda’s season past. Unfortunately we don’t have the budget to be flying to the world cups with her, so instead, you get her ripping the trails she rides when home (well, some just for the race series vids…). Big shout out to all of Miranda’s sponsors, everyone that helped out on a shoot, and of course Miranda. I know you love hiking sections of trail over and over again, and waiting up trail on your own, while I fool about with the camera…

Here’s to 2012 and watch this space for more Miranda and Straightshot colaborations—something is a brewing!
