What a great little film. I never been to such an event, but you can feel how stressful it must be for the riders. It pretty much all consists of waiting, preparation, some more waiting, be nice to the fans and other people, and then it's time to ride. They have to deliver in a very small amount of time. So off you go, and suddenly: BOOM, it's all over when you crash. Just one mistake. Takes nerves of steel to be one of those guys - I wouldn't want to be one of them. Good luck Cam Zink and others, hope everyone makes it without any mayor injuries.

Crazy perspective, very unique video. Definitely showed more of the stress/pressure that goes along with these big contests. And Zink IS a legend!

The shot of Zink covered in dirt, Soderstrom limping and the guys going nuts in the background sums up how think the line is between near death and glory. My heart was beating as he dropped in despite knowing exactly what was coming.

At times I think this guy is indestructible. This + his huge bail at Rampage, and still pretty much OK.

Loved it. Zink has always been one of my favorite riders!

One of the all time best.

This video has so much emotions inside... I knew about the crash but when he started his run i've been so excited that i forgot about it and almost started to cry when video became black & white...
(Aug 6, 2013 at 9:16)
I wachted that crash live, really too bad because his run was looking way better than genoms, would have loved to see it completed.

His words after he landed on his arse.... I always wondered what went through his head.. I was stood ten feet away right next to the landing and the sound was horrific when he hit the dirt. My heart sank I thought his back was done for. Couldn't believe it when he got up. Guys a boss. Good luck this year Cam buddy

When He crashed last year, that scared the crap out of me. I broke my back landing that same way during qualifiers in 07. Not a good feeling at all. Glad He was able to get up from that one.

Its all modern gladiatorism of our time everybody benefits, just that we dont feel their pain, except saying ouch. Zink is the man, sends it BIIIIIIIIGGGG, somtimes crashes the hardest, greatfully survives all. LEGEND, doesnt matter if not on podium.

At the end, you can almost feel the frustration and all the other emotions when he's looking at Genon. Such a competitor. I liked that video a ton. Another reason Cam will always be one of my favorites.

that was really cool, the edit and the song are perfect!!!!!!! Cam Zink it's sooo Rad!!!!!!!!
(Aug 6, 2013 at 10:01)
Well the end was rather depressing haha. Hope Cam sends it this year. Come on Zink we know you can do it!
(Aug 6, 2013 at 11:06)
strange: there is no slo mo in his real life... i feel upset now...
(Aug 6, 2013 at 22:08)
Love this guy! But does anyone has a clue why he rides a Cosair but with Hyper decal?
(Aug 7, 2013 at 15:01)
Corsair taken over by hyper i think
(Aug 6, 2013 at 10:02)
its so bad that he look back but that is. He's an amazing rider. Good luck this year Zink ...

One of the most real and emotional mtb video.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 20:22)
Did he eat a piece of gravel right after he fell...?
(Aug 7, 2013 at 16:43)
That was really a great video. Enjoyed the different perspective.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 8:58)
Good luck this year Zink!
(Aug 6, 2013 at 15:04)
I don't know if I would have gotten up, but whats the name of the song?

(Aug 6, 2013 at 12:43)

(Aug 6, 2013 at 9:10)
Zink is such an awesome guy! Good luck dog!!
(Aug 6, 2013 at 9:57)
Yeah Cam! Kill it buddy.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 9:11)
Zink for the win!
(Aug 12, 2013 at 12:30)
Zink. Just, Just Zink.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 13:12)
Great vid, emotional.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 9:08)
Go get 'em Cam!

What a boss.

Holy shit the 3s off that Bud Light sender by Soder & the guy on the green bike were so huge. They look so big & smooth & floaty & just dropping forever. So what's with the big Cam Zink hard on all over this site? Cool video from sponsors showing the resultant loss from flips & 3s just not cutting it that day, but I'd rather see Semenuk or McCaul's day leading up to the finals. I'm sure Semenuk wouldn't want the camera's all up in his shit though.

Nothing against Hyper, but I would be curious to see Cam ride a different bike for Crankworx and Rampage this year...
