Next week: Jump the truck over the bike
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:30)
That was like "perfect timing"!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:41)
Get Nitro Circus on the line , right now

Savage, exactly what I was thinkin!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:29)
when i saw the title of the vid i thought they were jumping the truck itself, not over one...still cool but not what i was hoping for.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:34)
this is pinkbike... not pinktruck

@mtnbkrforlife - you do realize theres a lot more than just bikes on this site..people sell electronics, cars, dirtbikes, paintball gear...whats wrong with a sweet trophy truck jump? the bikers coulda followed ....
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:58)
Very nice video/concept. Not trying to bash on it at all, and with all respect, all you guys jumped was a "gap" that could of had a pit full of fluffy bunnies for that matter. Still was a good jump, still was good timing. Once again, I'm not trying to be disrespectful.
But next time how about... send the trophy truck into a big jump, then have a bike jump the jumping trophy truck mid-air, then have a MX bike jump the jumping bike that's jumping the jumping trophy truck ...all at the same time. Yaddidamean?
Jk about the MX bike. But it was be cool to have a small jump from a trophy truck and a bike clearing that jumping trophy truck in mid-air...too dangerous? nah.

You thinking something like this Spicy?
Believe it or not they did have some mountain bikes in that scene.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 13:28)
You do it Spicey-Mike! Oh wait...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:04)
HELL YEAH. Exactly what I'm talking about. Perfect lol.
(Oct 28, 2012 at 14:31)
maybe some sharks with frickin laser beams attached to their heads
(Nov 2, 2012 at 6:10)
epavichthesavage - ATC needed for that shoot... O_o
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:30)
Really bummed they didnt have more footage of the TT. Think it was Vildosola's truck, dude's from Mexico, and he was the 1st (and only) Mexican to win the B1K (2010). Pretty sick
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:49)
(Oct 26, 2012 at 16:13)
Yes, that is, in fact, the Vildosolas' Geiser Bros No.21 trophy truck. I wonder what he was doing up north, or if they were down South. But wait, I wonder how long ago this happened! The photo shows the truck with the old F150 front clip, but it has the new F150 Raptor "FORD" front clip/grille.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 22:09)
Sounds like they were down in Mexico??? I was wondering the same thing as Ford's moved all their trophy trucks to the new Raptor clip...
(Oct 27, 2012 at 3:05)
Yes they were in Mexico... And they didn't only jump over a Trophy Truck, Chase also found a hole to jump into!
(Oct 27, 2012 at 9:36)
This is more like what we have here, not only desert by the border. Where this shots and the trophy truck was filmed is forest around a Volcano Nevado de Toluca where you can ride all the way to 4000 meters and has 2 lakes in the crater. We have had national DH championships there since 1993, the panamerican Championships were there in 98 with a drop of 1700 meters for the DH course. In the Town of Queretaro there was a very nice dh course where MInnaar,David Vazquez, and south american riders have been more than twice and had great reviews. As always our big problem is sponsors, Beer, Soda Drinks Mountainbike in generaletc only care about Soccer because of the TV coverage. Redbull has helped a lot with races like DownTaxco where racers like Kyle Strait won by less than a second beat our former national champion.

Just watched Fox racing mtb movie, with the fucking awesome trophy truck with mtb in the back intro. Now saw this and i'm like fucking yes shit YEAH awesome WOOOHOOOO woopwoooopp
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:51)
What frame/bike is she riding??? I know she was on the Big S at one point right??? But tht doesn't look like a Spec. Frame, more like either a Hyper or the new Diamond Back...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 13:41)
Nah if you look very carefully you can see the triple rear triangle on her frame. Still on specialized by the looks of things.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:06)
Did you not notice the gigantic specialized "S" on her helmet in the first half of the video?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 22:15)
No actually I wasn't really looking at her helmet...
@scblurnz: Now I see it... thanks for pointing that out aye...
(Oct 27, 2012 at 1:57)
All good bro.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 19:10)
This is awesome...and it fuxking awesome to watch some of these videos on here and think to myself that I've ridden with these people and had conversations with a lot! Well done, Katie!!
(Oct 27, 2012 at 9:37)
My point is dont think of Mexico as someone new to Mountainbike. Come to ride here and enjoy desert, mountains, jungle and beaches in a safe environment and beautiful weather. Cheers
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:23)
Hey Tyler , reminds me of Sawnsea! The good old days! Any time anyone jumps over something on their bike is good in my books.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:42)
Downhill and Trophy Truck.. nice!.. The Trophy Truck is ready for the Baja 1000
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:39)
I've gotto agree with black stone biker, the prepubescent boys language is really horrible...there are children that watch these videos also you know?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 13:38)
Is that a footage from GoPro 3? If so, it's not a huge difference from both previous models. Do not get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Go Pro, just saying...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:41)
cool idea, super ordinary video quality.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:33)
Her reaction is awesome! We all get this feeling once
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:57)
not that impressive
(Oct 26, 2012 at 23:39)
mobbin it! so sick!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:25)
lucky the antenna didnt catch the spokes lol
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:34)
get the camera on a quad copter for the best view!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 16:11)
Every thing needs MOAR quadcopter footage
(Oct 27, 2012 at 11:56)
surely im not the only one that has a craving to bust out that gap! looks sweet!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:40)
I got mislead by the title! I thought the were jumping the truck, not over it. :/
(Oct 29, 2012 at 10:21)
Umm yeah Chainsmoke did a better job intergrating a tt and mtn bike. Plus iy was Larry Ragland which is a BAJA legend.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:27)
(Oct 27, 2012 at 2:33)
Oh man that truck looks sweet. I miss mine
(Oct 27, 2012 at 13:38)
Good lord that trophy truck sounds filthy.
(Oct 28, 2012 at 16:01)
I hate it when girls swear. Ruined the video for me.
(Oct 28, 2012 at 16:59)
i wonder what would happen if a transport truck came.....
(Oct 27, 2012 at 20:17)
I don't know what I want to ride more the demo the truck or that road gap.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 23:06)
Fun and real kool with the timing
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:22)
ehhh, another one of those "girl does something most men can do, its front page now!" things
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:11)
Katie is seriously cool.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:57)
MEXICO, just the best to downhill @.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:29)
Wish it was better, we've got more potential, you will hardly find a road gap like this here, only when the big ones come theres some action over here, other than that we need much more builders and riders, especially in the Downhill discipline.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:44)
¡Viva el downhill mexicano!
(Oct 27, 2012 at 9:23)
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:21)

(Oct 26, 2012 at 19:00)
VIVA MEXICO PUTOS , and thats tavo vildosola by way
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:05)

(Oct 29, 2012 at 18:37)
That was apalling
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:37)
(Oct 27, 2012 at 16:55)
Hell ya Katie!!!
(Oct 27, 2012 at 8:41)
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:45)
