Man you missed the surfboards. epic waves in mexico
(Oct 27, 2012 at 9:41)
Naw... Take Mexico and excellent together.

Shredding and big jumps are awesome, but videos like this also deserve a spot in the VOY bracket. Sometimes it ain't how big you go, it's how much fun you have. Fantastic vid.

Finalmente algo de México!

thanks so much for all the great feedback! It was a truly great ride with good friends. I'm just glad Devon was there to capture it all
Here are a few links with a little more back story if you wanted to know a more about the trip
Mexican army even loves fatbikes:

Just a story from one day:

Cool, but not the Mexico I know. As Joslatapi says, Pinkbike NEEDS to do a big feature on the Taxco race next weekend! I hear Fairclough is even coming over!
(Oct 27, 2012 at 7:43)
I have found Mexico to be a wonderful and diverse country over the years. From the volcanoes to the beach, to the rugged desert of the frontera, it has all been pretty good to me. This was not intended to be an all inclusive video, just a little snippet of the smallest of adventures by a few friends. I wish I had the time to get down t o Taxco, i look forward to seeing your coverage of it here!
(Oct 27, 2012 at 20:00)
Totally understand - Mexico is huge. It would take months or years to be able to say that you've seen anything near all of it. Let me know if you ever make it down to the cloud forests and biiiiig mountains in Veracruz.

plenty beer no food or water i got an osprey bag soundtrack was great footage and photos great commentary great i realy enjoyed this oh and i thought mexico was a war zone. british new programs only give us bad news about mexico . well on to the next video.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 21:01)
Fantastic! This is the essence of what bicycles are all about... ADVENTURE!... and beer and liquor too
Especially when you're DC!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 20:33)
Rad video, I've been trying to figure out how to convince my wife that I need a third, uber fat tire bike! This video might do the trick!!!!
(Oct 27, 2012 at 7:39)
somehow I have 2 fatbikes now..and no wife.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 9:36)
That's better than two wives.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 10:20)
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:13)
what a fun adventure! i've always wanted to do something like this!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:21)
I thought the Stig hated computers! I've been lied to all my life!!!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:22)

(Oct 27, 2012 at 0:08)
Song is Manu chaos great artist
(Oct 27, 2012 at 21:30)
Can you guys tells me about your choice of timing for this trip? It seems that conditions were less than warm, but maybe you just had free time, now?
(Oct 29, 2012 at 11:45)
We actually did this trip last December. I picked the dates because it is usually 70 degrees and bluebird skies that time of year in the desert. But we were the unfortunate victim of a cold snap..With the exception of the wind and some cold toes at night, it was pretty manageable. Cooler temps were a must since there was a solid 2 days without any option of fresh water..

..SEA OF CORTEZ, BIKES, FRIENDS, AND BEER..CAN'T ASK FOR MORE
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:45)
Nothing quite like riding drug mule trails.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 23:18)
Wow! Such a sick trip! I liked the narrations... It must have been a blast!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:20)
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:23)
Dude, finally something comes out in your own country and you diss it. Nice man..........Great props to you on support of stuff going on in Mexico... Big applause!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:28)
just because he's from Mexico, doesn't mean he has to blow smoke if he doesn't feel like it...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:09)
I think that he says that because of the small amount of things Pinkbike publishes from Mexico, they almost always hang up with no downhill or freeride action, its always North, punta San Carlos, Someone coming to Mexico and making trips etc...with the exception of the recent trip Katie, Chase etc. are doing here in Mexico. But this video doesn't have any bad thing, just that they could show up cooler stories and places about Mexico,... Hope they do with the DownTaxco 2012, gonna be siiiick, Riders from all the world and mexican party! and there are more upcoming events here that can make a better story of my country, more entertaining maybe.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:19)
that sounds awesome joslatapi!! sign me up!! wheres a link?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:24)
not good enough but you might find some info, but trust me it´s gonna be so awesome, best riders are going, best place to do it, best food, best people, youll see the real face of Mexico in that event, who ever can go wont regret, to bad im not going
(Oct 26, 2012 at 17:16)
Aburrid'simo! Listen to joslatapi and go really south. Baja is nice but it is not the whole of Mexico
(Oct 26, 2012 at 20:01)
Maybe someone from Mexico should get out in the depths of your own country with a camera and some mates and produce a vid that can show what as you say really happens there in the Mexican mtb community and put it up in this very webpage. You don´t have to wait for pinkbike to get out there and do it for you guys. Then you´ll be able to show the PB community how cool your country is and grand it is for bike riding. Oh, what´s the name of that bird from Jalisco who´s won all sorts of titles and races against dudes?
(Oct 27, 2012 at 20:03)
Well, if you're asking for it - although I'm not claiming it to be a great vid!
It's of our local DH track up at 3600 metres altitude (over 12000 feet), from there you can do some awesome all-mountain rides down through the forests.
(Oct 28, 2012 at 23:24)
A really good edit and it looked like an amazing ride, great job guys.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 14:07)

(Oct 26, 2012 at 23:35)
such an awesome adventure!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:45)
Love these sort of videos! Anyone got any more they can recommend?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 16:00)
My friend's blog
He was once 24hr singlespeed mt. bike world champion, one of the coolest dudes I've ever met.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 7:36)
hell yes. Doom is a pioneer of this fatbikes in the desert sh!t...I don't have many other videos like this but I did do this one
inspired by the packraft/fatbike adventures of the man named above
(Oct 26, 2012 at 20:59)
Good thing they were able to bring along helmets to protect their rear racks. ??????
(Oct 27, 2012 at 7:49)
in hindsight, the whole tour would have been helmet-less and I would have just left the damn thing home. There was no real danger of head injury when suffering along at 3mph in your granny gear on a soggy beach. I can't count the number of times i almost had a fit and threw the damn thing in the desert...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 23:23)
That was awesome.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 19:58)
what make are them tyres?
(Oct 29, 2012 at 20:14)
(Oct 30, 2012 at 19:21)
cool as! could do with a 3inch set for my bike
(Oct 29, 2012 at 22:54)
this song is awesome
(Oct 27, 2012 at 6:49)
muy bueno, algo diferetne de las montañas!!!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 16:17)
Epic trip! I thought that bongo song was gonna make my ears bleed though. Good lord. Everything else was A+!
