Rollerblading video on mountain bike trail a hit
Dustin Werbeski shreds down Bobsled, a popular trail on Fromme Mountain, in viral video
The North Shore Mountains are infamously difficult terrain for mountain bikers, snowboarders, even hikers at times.
So it's no surprise that a video of someone rollerblading a North Shore mountain biking trail is getting a lot of attention online.
Dustin Werbeski is the subject of the video, shredding down Bobsled, a popular trail on Fromme mountain.
"It's always been a dream, just a concept. I didn't know if it was even possible, but obviously it is," Werbeski told The Early Edition guest host Stephen Quinn about the attempt.

Werbeski is a professional rollerblader. He is currently in Spain but hopes to bring the sport of mountain blading back to Vancouver this fall.
"The possibilities are endless. I've only touched a couple trails," he said. "I don't know what the mountain bikers have built or what I personally will build, or what this off-road rollerblading sport will become. But we'll only see."
