 first off i like the show,but are we going back to fire roads type of ride,its fun but its bmx smooth to easy.
  • + 21
 Why does it have to be hard? I don't see a problem with it just being fun. It would be a nice change from riding hard stuff to take a break and ride fun stuff I'd say.
  • + 17
 @Martinezorlando, It's totally different to the 2 steep, root infested and chalk/flinty tracks we are famous for at Aston Hill. That's why we built this, so it was a super fun trail that anyone can ride and progress on.
  • + 3
 Well done GBB.. youve made everyone on facebook go mental now hahah...well done guys Smile
  • + 14
 Matrinez , trust me we have no shortage of technical/rough tracks in the UK so having this ' A-line ' style trail is big new for us over ehre , we have very little in the sence of flow/air trails so this is a rarity for us.

And the rest of the tracks at Aston hill are plenty rough/technical , now we have a good range of style there .

Respect to the builders
  • + 3
 Its great to have a flow trail. Also i find riding A-line and dirt merchant improved my tech riding as well as i started looking for flow on tech trails too. Once you're flowin' your goin'(fast)! And they are super fun.

 amazing video, what camera are you using? i use a DSLR Canon 550d but im thinking of upgrading at some point when i have the money.
  • + 2
 Thank you! We use a Sony FS700 and Canon 7D, though for this only the Sony. TBH, the camera body isn't the biggest deal with filming, it's how you use the camera, the manual settings and the lenses you use. If you invest, invest in better lenses (EF or EF 'L', rather than EF-S on Canon) before better camera bodies! Hope that helps!

 1. those saracen riders were SHREDING
2. that guy in the back was absolutely BOOSTING, going huge!!!
3. was it just me, or did that train get progressively longer?
  • + 1
 It did get a touch longer, for the majority of the film we had 2 riders from Team Aston Hill and 2 from Madison/Saracen Then on the last sections all team riders joined in.
  • + 3
 I have to say that last guy seemed to just take off with no regard or care as to where the landings were. It was sick.
  • + 2
 He was also on a Bottle rocket and everyone else was on 8" Dh bikes, so he was flying! We need to get him a big bike.
  • + 2
 Oh he's only 14 too!

 what fps are you using to capture these epic slowmo's??
  • + 1
 We're running at either 200fps or 400fps mate. We can go to 800 but 200/400 still looks mint!
  • + 1
 It does indeed. My little cannon dslr can only shoot at 50fps, looks good for general videos but I can never get the slowmo's any where close to your epicness
