This week we head back to the UK for Alex Rankin and Milan Spasic's classic Sprung 2. This was the first mountain bike I ever bought on VHS and, to this day, I still maintain it is the best ever made. Why? Because it made mountain biking look like fun. It featured the best riders the UK had at the time, but without the seriousness that some filmmakers seem to love so much these days. There's no cheesy voice over and no slow-mo, just riding bikes and dicking around with mates. It's living proof that you don't need all the kit in the world to make a video, because you don't need 200fps to capture fun, you just need to be having some yourself... As it's a late 90s film, there are quite a few people riding without the correct safety precautions, so if you watch this and all you can think is "he's not wearing a helmet, that's not safe," you have our sympathy.
