 I am so amazed with the riding, and in the snow he ripped on a trail that you couldn't see just like if it was there it only needed a good song and it would be even better
  • + 37
 I think the right music has to fit the mood of the video, so playing some rock or techno music really wouldn't achieve the message that Dan was trying to get across. I think the music fit this video to a tee.

 i love the sound of bike wheels hitting cold, hard earth....

 Although Canada has most of the best trails in the entire world, this video reminds me how lucky some of us are to live in an area where the comfortable biking season is all year 'round for us. I kinda feel spoiled for the weather, but yet I long to be able to call trails like the ones Dylan hits "the home trails". This video is sort of a mix of emotions for me, and the music only makes it even more incredible.
Great video and great riding!
And epic spew at 00:38 Wink

 @crazybikes That was almost spooky. Loved the bittersweet melancholy of this one. The track perfectly suited the mood

 i was complaining all day about hte cold weather.... now i can not wait for the first snow ride this year
  • + 3
 i rode my bike in pretty much the same conditions of snow last week-end. It's now over until april...there is always a transition month or two between bike and board. it's a dark time >

The video is awesome.

 This is totally a candidate for Video of the Year! Simply amazing. No excessive tricking. No dumb poppy music track. Simple. Elegant. Smooth. Great camera work, stellar editing. Definitely one of my favs.

 At least in Britain we get a full years of riding, a wet year but a year all the same. great video by the way!
  • + 2
 Only because anything North of the border is not Britain in people from down souths book. A couple of winters ago we lost over 4 months with the white stuff. Nice vid though.

 Wow. Amazing video. And amazing rider. No stupid music, no long shots of jump lines over and over again... simply... AWESOME.

 I agree !! Hearing the tires hit the frozen ground was cool too !

 i just got music choice whiplash from the karver video yesterday. the music fits perfectly for a wintery ride like this one, great video.
  • + 6
 Couldn't agree more. One of the best music and video combos bar none. Great use of slow mo moments too. What was in the coffee mug though?

 I have a lot of favorite videos on Pinkbike but this one became the number one. Life Cycles was the last movie where I had this special feeling and made me think about time, life, seasons and many more things and now I feel the same so thanks for sharing this fine piece of art!

 And.... as you guys get ready for your winter, its still a nice 20 degrees Celcius here in Australia. But we don't have trails to the extent that you guys do. I wonder if its because you get so much more stoked for the snow to clear so you can ride again, and you never take it for granted? I know i wont be... Mad props for a sick vid.

 I can definitely tell that a photographer made this video. Very artsy and cinematic.

 Same music as used in the ending of a Top Gear episode : www.veoh.com/watch/v18873397T2YZDnmj?h1=Top+Gear+Aston+Martin+V12+Vantage+s13e07 . Theme song is "An Ending (Ascent)" by Brian Eno.

 Easily my favourite video. I've just started reading life in the loops and Dylan is becoming one of my favourite riders. He reminds me of myself and how I feel about riding. This video also makes me want to watch Drive again lol some of you will understand.

 I really enjoyed this short film (I think it's not a video) A really simple story with well thought out shots. I like the humbleness of the video instead of the standard heroic bikemovies with the sentimental bullshit talk about life on the bike bla bla. You just showed us the same but with room for the viewers own interpretation. VOD in my opinion.

 awesome video, got me stoked for today's uplift!
lucky for us in the UK, we don't get proper un-rideable winters, it just gets sloppier than a hooker's chuff! (which in reality, isn't much different from the summer we just had anyway, just a bit colder...)

 Very cool.. kind of put me in a trance. Not sure I'm going to let the snow stop me. I just ordered studded tires. :-) I think I might have a problem.

 Spectacular. This so reminds me of growing up in Kamloops. The good thing about season endings is that there's a new season right around the corner.

 its the audio that makes this film. almost most films have a lil' it of natural audio and mostly music, but this is vice versa. and i like it!!

 This is really good $hit, I mean really really good! What does it for me is the feeling of purity throughout, from the riding, editing to soundtrack. Beautiful.

 Btw what was the song and such a sick vid i think this is one of the best of the year so composed and just a pleasure to watch.

 surely not riding during the winter is good sometimes as you get new stuff built and you get excited for the next year and it stops you getting bored
  • + 1
 @DylWestbury the ground freezes in winter, not much building gets gone
  • + 1
 what about skiing/snowboarding/snowbiking?
  • + 2
 @bobby-owen that'd def what I do all winter, but not much trail building gets done.
