Ultra-enduro, 'north shore,' downhill, marathon, ultramontane, freeride, ultra-DH-duro-cross, cross mtn, all country, marathon XC, XC-enduro… in a culture defined by marketing teams, hashtags, and Facebook, even slightly different styles of mountain biking have been segmented and targeted. 26, 27.5/650b, 29'er, the Vivid 3% etc; clever strategies born from boardrooms and mountain biking's own Don Draper incarnates. The soul of our sport is dynamic, and defined on the trail, not decided upon ten minutes before 5:00pm on Friday.

For this edit Kip Shortreed and ArtBarn film were inspired by the simple of joy of mountain bike riding; up trails, across trails, and down trails. Evoking the soul one finds in surf culture by simply returning to our roots... by going mountain biking. Kip is an extremely versatile rider and his definition of "mountain biking" is broader than most.

Kip's hometown of Squamish BC has a vast and interconnected trail network, offering the full gamut of riding experiences; you could never define a ride here by anything other then ‘Mountain Biking’ unless of course the last ‘ultramarathon xc enduro’ you went on included trials-moto trails, old NWD/Collective film lines, Half Nelson, a section of the BC Bike Race course, Full Nelson, and the four gaps on Grin.

Kip rides for Banshee, Trident, HBG, Answer, Manitou, Sunringle, Raceface, and Time. He makes a killer gluten free pizza crust, found at The Nest in Brackendale, and still will not give me back my Hayes Prime brakes.

 that write up was beautiful, and the video was a no frills masterpiece. i wasnt bored with the uphill sections, and the music choice was excellent. i love how it didnt blot out the sounds of the bike on the trails, it highlighted those sounds of biking.

 Bullettoothtony, you will figure out the fascination when you learn how to do it. Watch a rally race for the Scando flick, and think how the same principal works for two wheels

 Although this video is not as bad as others can I ask, what is this fascination with kicking the back tire out in almost every video these days? Am I missing something? When I am out riding should I be concentrating more on were to kick out on straights and try to purposely slide my rear wheel while cornering for no good reason? Please stop it! Actually hauling ass catching air down straights or hauling ass into a corners drifting is cool! Trying to force it not so much...

 I don't know if I could make the jump at 1:22, looked so unexpected! I would say he has been on these trails before. Makes me want to ride now

 It is in the video, and this is exactly where I expect it to be in article, labeled as video article. That's the reason why I clicked!
