 Too bad it was 8 minutes of talking, and 1 minute of riding.
  • + 21
 Yeah, just what I was thinking. Still awesome to see em traveling and riding though. 1st episode was better.
  • + 21
 I liked it. It is a welcome change from the constant riding. Especially because I want to plan a trip like this for next summer and is a good way of seeing what that will be like.
  • + 11
 The next episode looks insane though!
  • + 6
 if you dont like, then dont watch it., i thought it was sick!
  • + 15
 gotta watch it to know if they like it bud
  • + 13
 Personally i like the talking. It gives us the chance to get inside the head of a professional mountain biker. I haven't watched it yet though so it could be 8 minutes of talking about brandons dog or something for all i know.
  • + 6
 I completely agree with HoolyDooly the non riding aspect for me is the best, I love watching what these riders do day to day
  • + 2
 After finally watching it 9 hours later..... That was really good, I've seen Brandon ride heaps of times, its good to get a look at a different aspect.
  • + 2
 It was so nice to see them fixing and shaping up the trail before they rode it. Not many "normal" riders would do that Smile

Liked to see some lifestyle clips to, a bit like "Dropin-tv" that got me starting to ride bikes when I was a little boy Smile
  • + 1
 I just loved seeing that b-e-a-utiful Mustang! Shame there was no return of Intern though...
  • + 2
 I actually like videos like this more...it is more of a story than just a few shots of someone riding a bike.

  • + 4
 pretty sure it was the nugs, maybe a combination
  • + 6
 that guy was awesome! and i also think it's funny how brandon's riding a new bike, he must get one a week Razz
  • - 1
 sick edits, stoked for more to come! but i find it funny that brandon was complaining about gas prices... does he accualy give a f*ck?
  • + 3
 Brandons 720s are so dumped they all most look like backflip 360s
  • - 1
 I can't believe he was moaning about fuel prices either- firstly it's double the price here in the UK and secondly he's driving a bloody Mustang!! If money's that tight Brandon, why don't you buy yourself a lovely Prius!!;-)

 it sounds gay but, i'm so jealous of this dude, just shows what hard work can do
  • + 3
 I dunno I work pretty hard and can't do all that stuff. Guys got loads of talent too. Takes both and he's got 'em. Glad to see some more exposure on him. The finger in the coffee though? dude.
  • + 2
 He rode the River Jumps at Whistler at every possible time he could from when he was 9, so having a legal set of sick jumps really helped him, and growing up in Whistler.

 Fucking live this shit!
  • + 8
 he's beating the shit out of that mustang Razz
  • + 11
 best. life. ever. what happened to the subaru, out of curiousity? not that i'm complaining Razz

 These episodes are extremely funny, entertaining, and sick! But c'mon Logan really? Was that breakfast just unbearable?? Haha
  • + 7
 That breakfast looked so good
  • + 1
 exactly my point haha it didn't make any sense
[Reply]
  • + 2
 LOL, no one from California refers to it as "Cali."

Also, how bad is the winter weather in BC anyway? Winter in Santa Cruz is usually rainy as shit, not sure why this is a good weather destination. You want good winter weather, then you should head further south to SLO or SoCal.
  • + 1
 If you look, when he is in Eugene the bikes are covered in ice and an extremly tiny amount of snow is on the ground, i imagine BC was much worse
  • + 2
 BC would be hidden by a shit load of snow probably

 Need a lid dude? Yea I need a lid tup

 These vids are great fun to watch and I'm eagerly waiting for the next installment! Its interesting to see what its like being a professional mountain biker who riders for living, reminds me of the life I wanted to live when I was in my late teens and early 20's (before college)!

 props to the dude in the Bronco, that access road is steeper than it looks haha Yeeeew!
[Reply]

 IN EUGENE: ALWAYS TAKE YOUR BIKES INSIDE! Regardless of the rent a cop ninja, there is a reason why bike locks will guarantee their locks in every place but NYC and Eugene..... Too bad he didnt spend a day riding in Eugene, He was less than a mile away from the franlkin dirt jumps and 2 exits down I-5 is a little dh and trail section. But I guess the weather didnt look too good

 Tires in a rock garden. SC has innovators
  • + 6
 Well were pretty stoned and it was rad before it got destroyed
[Reply]
  • + 1
 Yawn. Best part if this whole vid was the last two minutes & it wasn't even Semenuk's or Peat's riding. It was some rando redneck gapping a 4x4 road. Kind of a waste of time IMO.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 Right on. Figured that segment about the ninja in Eugene would end with the bikes being stolen. So many cockbag thieves around here.
[Reply]

 That is one of the lamest vids I've ever seen. Is he retarded?...drive to Cali in a fastback? Yeah, that's a great idea... and who gives a shit about all the traveling bullshit, SC has a lot of great trails, show some of those.

 Dude, BRANDON IS THE BOSS!! What an awesome person.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 Is that trail public? I don't expect it to be but I'm heading down to Santa Cruz this summer and I don't want to miss out.
[Reply]
  • + 2
 that flair whip or what ever he does at the end of the vid is ridiculous!
[Reply]
  • + 3
 how is he so rich?
  • + 1
 because if you haven't noticed hes dominated in the last couple years.
  • + 1
 Have you seen the cash prize for winning Crankworx alone? Then add in all the other contests plus sponsorship bonus' for exposure in media and things are pretty cushy.
  • + 4
 It seems like he was always rich, had the sweet ride right from the early days - so maybe he worked hard in some other way, maybe rich family, maybe smart investments. Prize money isn't going very far with all the travel etc these guys have to do. I'm guessing his main income now would be sponsorship, Red Bull has some very deep pockets.

 I'm curious, how big is the gas tank on the ford?
  • + 0
 well considering that he says it gets 200 miles a tank it is probably 10-20 miles per gallon which would make the tank 10-20 gallons
