Organic Growth - By The Coastal Crew
Crazy video- Coastal crew's vids have always been next level. You can't predict what they'll come up and they never disappoint. I also knew I had heard this song on PB before: http://www.pinkbike.com/video/391987/ (which is also sick BTW)

@skarsy: I wasn't suggesting that vids with the highest view count should get VOD- that's only an indication of how well marketed a bike film has been. I think they should divide the views by the number of faves to give a 'hit rate' as such. With such a wide audience on PB these days it makes sense to use their feedback more and build them into the site. We had the entire 4 part series of this each as VOD- probably a combined fave count of less than 100. PB just isn't close to what it used to be.

Not2Bad Now Available on iTunes
comparing this with Hollywood type films is crazy- the sales figures are in another league. I look at it like this.... if I buy Deadpool I'll watch it twice, maybe 3 times ever. I must have watched all of my riding films 20-25 times at least. Take the £10 you would spend on 2 pints in the pub, use £8 to buy this and use the other £2 to buy a couple of tinnies to drink at home while watching it.

PB has a view count and a fave count. Why not use these stats to let PB users select VOD? Yeah this vid is ok but it's not particularly exciting, interesting or different in any way- as shown by the number of faves. Currently both VOD and POD are based solely on the opinion of a few people that are deeply embedded within the hugely cliquey bike industry.

Drew Bezanson's Learning Curve - Episode 1
Hes always seemed to pick the bigger drops ad transfers and I think that's why a lot of MTBers like him too. The joyride edit had my jaw on the keyboard. Hope he hangs around for a bit to give it a go over a few seasons- not gonna be easy to go straight to the top of such a talented group of riders.

Video of the Month - June 2016
Yeah I know it's crazy... Anyone would think he picks the VODs himself. All a bit weird these days with so many of the other vids being uploaded to other sites. Pure Darkness 3, RAW 100 & Andreu's latest vid for starters. Thats what I'll remember June for, and the farmer edit from Caldwell because it's undeniably rad.
