Awsome video - thanks for the link.

Do you know what that music was playing during the credits at the end? Don't think it was Grits or RMZ, but whatever it was I like.

They make it look easy. A lot of the camera angles don't do justice to how steep some of those lines are.

My favorite sound in the world is the sound of a full suspension bike absorbing a hit. It sounds like it feels, and I don't think there's a word for that.

And Miranda Miller does absolutely kill it. Since moving to BC I've been left in the dust by more women on mtbs than I can count.

the skills at speed are amazing. and the way these guys throw the rear wheel around to corner is beyond explanation and almost beyond physics of 2 round wheels

yeah, that's just so beyond anything I can relate to doing on my bike I can't even think about it. It's amazing how much bmx riding has influenced mtb...

there is nothing in that video that this lad can touch either.
no doubt the sickest riders around and bmx is a huge influence in may areas of the industry


the thing about downhill or slope style bike handling that kills me is how front wheel dominant the best riders are

BC check out Wayne Goss in this clip from NWD 10 this dude flat out rips the rippers

specifically the sequence about 1:50 in. his total commitment to the front end is just beyond comprehension especially at that speed

Yeah, I see what you mean. Kinda like skiing eh? If you're not driving hard in the front you've got no control.
