Any trail can be ridden in so many ways. Up, down, crusing, flat out, skidding, drifting, wheelie, hucking. All ways are good ways. Simply put - just have fun with it.

Every devoted mountain biker strives to travel the world, explore new locations, and experience the finest of singletrack. However, riding the same trails that you’ve done for years and years might be equally exciting. Maybe it’s because nothing seems to change, the revival of old memories, or just the trails themselves. Nonetheless, it is hard to beat the feeling of returning home and ripping familiar terrain.
The local hills and the nearby bike parks have made Jon Bokrantz to the rider...

You all know the drill: summer is here, and ain't nobody got time to mess around. The only things that matters are riding, eating, sleeping, repeating. So, sometimes you just got to keep things simple. No elaborate story, no talk, no B-roll, fillers or scenery. 100% free from time-consuming slow motion, and with entertainment as the sole purpose. No Fuzz. Full Throttle. Here's to the summer of 2014, let's make it one to remember!

Finding the balance between work and your personal life is a never-ending trade-off. In my case; that balance is between making films and riding my bike. The state of perfect balance is when they both converge; when I get the chance to combine both riding and filming at the same time.
Since me and Philip Lundman share this view upon bikes and cameras, we've have had the idea of making another film together on that theme for quite some time now. We finally found some time to make it happen....

Inspired by Sean Penn's classical masterpiece "Into The Wild", this film is about the essence of mountain biking. Don't give your entire $24.000 savings account to charity, abandon all your possessions and hitchhike to Alaska without telling anyone, but for the love of God, don't waste all of your precious time fighting over wheel-sizes, strange marketing moves or economic materialism. Make sure most if it is time well spent: on your bike, in the wild.

Dark, freezing and endless Swedish winters seems far from ideal from a bikers point of view. I beg to differ. It's peak season for BMX and the conditions indoors are always all-time. And so it has been for the past decade; BMX is definitely my roots.

We spent 17 days in southern France and Andorra to search for places that offers great mountain biking in spectacular terrain. Meeting old friends, making new ones, drinking wine, eating cheese and savoring the history and culture of Provence. This trip was all about enjoying the good life.

After a long year behind the lens I needed to switch things up and move over to the other side of the glass. Time to reverse the roles; outsource the director duties and instead play the leading roll. This film perpetuates that riding bikes will always be more important than capturing it with a camera.

My winning entry for the Through the Lens film competition during the 2012 Queenstown Bike Festival, presented by DTR New Zealand.
The six months that I've spent in Queenstown has been nothing shorter than amazing. This place has not just some of the best riding in the world but also a booming bike scene and extraordinary people. This video is an homage to all of Queenstown - a best of the best from an amazing summer.
Thanks for all the memories, I can't thank you enough!

You can hardly find any Kiwis in Queenstown, so when you get the chance to hook up with a true New Zealander like Kelly McGarry you definitely don't want to miss out on the opportunity! Jon Television and McGazza went on a mission to portray the NZ life; surfing, bike riding, beers, good scene, good people. Good times!

The first round of the 2012 MTBNZ DH Nationals has arrived in Queenstown. The brand new Remarks Grass Track invites the riders to a fast, loose and ridicolously dusty visit and racing mode is officially on in New Zealand. Jon Television brings you the whole experience - from the initial thoughts of designing the track to the final showdown on the finish line and a much-needed swim after a weekend of intense sun.

The massive variety of trails around Queenstown is one of the things that makes this place so special. Jon Television teamed up with the french bad ass Maxime Bruneau and headed out for a mission to show you what QT trails are all about. Rooty woods, sweet as jumps, tech & loamy and pretty darn scenic! All in the classic spirit that defines Jon Television - light hearted and fun!
