bigquotesIt's always been a dream of mine to build and ride an open loop, but I'd never thought it would actually happen. I have no space at my place and a general lack of carpentry skills. Then I was approached by Drew Bezanson and his good friend Jason Leil, to help them start up some jumps in Nova Scotia. Needless to say I grabbed the opportunity and got straight to work. Everyday as I walked into the trails I just couldn't help but notice these 4 perfectly placed trees, it was like the mountain bike gods themselves had left them for me. Eventually I just couldn't take it anymore and I had to step up to the challenge. With a little help from some good friends we made it happen. - Matt Macduff

 Are you kidding me? That show of him hitting it is insane... did he land that?

Everything you guys do in Russia makes the rest of the world look like pussies, haha.

 Everybody is waiting for Kirill's video to find out if he landed it! I wish he'd been a little bit faster with the video...

 That is indeed radical!! That's a lot of work to do without knowing whether it would work- the result is epic!

 No problem with Matt. I just thought it would be fair to mention Kirill in this context. Don't you think so?

 Kirill did if first. Matt copied trying to make it like he came up with it which in my book is a d-bag move. btw Big Ball hucks>style/gay-ass-steeze any day, everyday!

 A lot of people are voting comments about Kirill down. I seriously can't understand why. Both Kirill and Matt are awsome riders.
