With unprecedented access to land, British Columbia is home to more mountain bike trails per capita than anywhere else in the world. From old growth rain forests to barren grasslands, BC’s diverse landscape allows for every variety of trail to exist in one place. In BC, you can experience the evolution of mountain biking through the trails. From beaten down jumps on a vacant lot, to massive back-country booters; from first descents that have never seen the tread of a tire to machine-made masterpieces. Trails connect all mountain bikers, and in BC, trail builders are the force that bring riders together.

 My favorite for sure. Aggy is so rad! And I prefer to see Semenuk riding a trail rather than doing just jumps. And Hunters Step Up Step Down off the logs in insane!

 with all these segments being given out for free, it kinda makes me feel a bit ripped off, and wondering why i bothered to buy it in the first place, considering i dont really care if its HD or not
  • + 31
 buying the product helps the people involved to make another film, a good thing! tup sure you could sell on your copy if you need to.

 semenuk got the best style ever
  • + 16
 Matt Hunter seems like the coolest guy ever.
  • + 9
 He's either high all the time or is just so stoked on his riding. Im going to say riding.
  • - 11
 and I'm going to say its the crack.
  • + 7
 Wow wow wow, i meant pot not Cocaine. If he was on Cocaine he wouldn't be riding, he would be at home laying on the couch feeling all warm and fuzzy inside without a worry in the world pondering life. And by now, probably dead. That makes me sound like a user....

 anybody who rides trek is going to be fast. FACT

 where matt miles?

 Is Semenuk fast enough to race? He sure looks like it
  • + 4
 I wouldn't doubt it if he was, or ready to with a bit of experience racing at the WC level. His style is incredibly clean and there is a bunch of footy that shows he knows how to ride tech stuff... he's probably one of those guys who will slay hard no matter the discipline, haha.

 Isn't it Cocaine that make you feel warm, like you crawled back into the womb? That how Russell Brand described it in his book anyway.

 Honestly, I had not planned on buying strength in numbers but because of all these free posts I feel like I owe it to them to buy it now. You guys should at the very least sell some T-shirts or something! I would be willing to buy one to help further support you guys and as a thanks for all these free uploads!

 First time I've watched the Aggy's segment was in a cinema, grabbing the chair and my balls just got lost. So stoked. This is insane!
  • + 6

 Best Part! End of story. Its pretty hard to put every aspect of Mountainbiking in one Segment but these guys did it.
[Reply]

 Semenuk has always looked really fast when riding DH trails, I wonder what he would do on the WC DH circuit?!? Is he fast enough?
[Reply]
  • + 3
 I much prefer watching Brandon ride trails than slopestyle, its so cool that he can use his skills he learnt on the SS courses on the trails! It makes them look a whole lot better to watch Big Grin

 I have never thought that Brandon was going to make anything special when I saw him on a DH but I was very very wrong............ I actually think I have never seen such an amazing riding before!!!!!!!!! I just want to go out there and ride my bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 so im sitting in computer class watching this, and i start internally screaming in my head to go ride, im seriously pondering running out the door, home, and getting my bike to go ride- too bad my house is 10 miles away, and i have a maths test after this, and then 6 more periods and a long bus ride home until i can ride my bike....
