 It's cool to see Matty riding big mountain. As much as I love watching him shred the bike park, it was a nice change of scenery

 Awesome job guys! How many times have you heard people say that first decent riding in the big mountains is the most fun they've had on a bike? Anyone who loves freeriding needs to try it at least once, nothing else compares.

 There was just a big fire in the mountains behind my house, I went out with my friend and hiked to the top, then since all the foliage was gone we just went down the side of this bare black mountain, it was sick. hahah I would love to do more freeriding like that

 riding scree is something every shredder should do at some point in their lives. It's like skiing powder, your tires are drifting but you are in full control. It is nothing like locking up your front wheel in a loose blown out death chunder chute at the bike park.

 You can never get a good sense of how steep the vert really is. But that looks pretty gnarly.

 I've been wondering this for a while. Where is the Monster Energy helmet? Mike is still sponsored by Monster Energy right?
  • + 1
 It's a strange situation , here mike-hopkins.com/sponsors you don't see " Monster " mentionned BUT one the top of the page there is a Monster logo , and on the bottom of the page there is a link to the Monster website ...

 Hes not on the Monster Roster anymore, not contest-oriented enough for Monster's focus is what I was told. The page graphics havn't been updated yet I guess.
  • + 1
 I figured as much. I think Life Cycles got him on Monster but ultimately they want contest riders. Mike shreds nevertheless and deserves great sponsors like The North Face. Sick vid and I look forward to more!
