10 Videos We Missed in our 'Best of the Decade' List

Dec 3, 2019
by Ed Spratt  

We knew it would happen. The past decade has been incredible for mountain biking videos, so when we published our Top 50 Edits of the Decade list there were always going to be some bangers that we couldn't include. Here are 10 of the best that we missed in our original lineup.

1. Brandon Semenuk & R-Dog - 'Parallel'

Brandon Semenuk and Ryan Howard push the limits in this edit from earlier this year. With insane tricks and a perfect mix of synchronization and spontaneity, this is a stand out edit from some of the sports best riders.

2. The Dudes of Hazzard - The Fellowship of the Party Rings

The 'Dudes of Hazzard' have produced some great memorable edits of the past ten years but their adventure in 'The Fellowship of the Party Rings' is full of hilarious moments and even better riding.

bigquotesWith the rest of the World unaware of their perils, the collective, fuelled by Party Rings, deal with all they encounter and return triumphant. The Dudes of Hazzard

3. Connor Fearon - In the Know
Views: 217,535    Faves: 3,793    Comments: 103

Views: 112,230    Faves: 2,596    Comments: 55

Not many riders can fit this much style in a three-minute edit and let alone achieve this on three different bikes.

5. Brett Rheeder - Shadow of the Sun
Views: 39,846    Faves: 461    Comments: 13

Brett Rheeder catches the last moments of sunlight for his 2017 edit 'Shadow of the Sun'.

6. Casey Brown - This is Home
Views: 24,903    Faves: 350    Comments: 9

Casey Brown explores her home of Revelstoke, British Columbia in her amazing edit for the Shimano 'This is Home' series.

7. Mitch Ropelato - Steps to the Top

9. Remi Gauvin - Flow Down, Speed Up
Views: 43,411    Faves: 766    Comments: 20

EWS racer Remi Gauvin shows off his prowess on the bike as he for a wet fall time ride in Squamish.

10. Chris Kovarik - Summer of Summit - The Dirt Chronicles Ep. 4 - The Karver
Views: 245,964    Faves: 2,917    Comments: 152

The legend that is Chris Kovarik goes warp speed as he carves turns in the Whistler Bike Park for this classic 2012 edit.

Honourable Mention: Strahan Loken Goes Fishing
Views: 64,193    Faves: 1,028    Comments: 253

This Rocky Mountain / Race Face collaboration technically came out more than a decade ago, but it was too good not to include. One of our favourites ever.

 @snl1200: #14 of the original 50 list.

 @QualityTime: Yep. My bad. Missed it. So many great edits. Kerr's newest edit "Blowin off Steam" was one of my favorite recents that I don't think was on either list (but I have been wrong recently...) and one of my all time favorites is Hopkin's "Siblings." Skidzville and the Dreamride series are rightly on the list- Siblings is deserving as well IMO. So good and right to the feels and the core of the emotional experience of biking. www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3tlelJ7n8I

 And world economy has taken a noticeable drop, as global productivity numbers continue to fall towards the end of 2020, all off the back of an marked increase of content produced by mountain bike media giant, PinkBike

 Pretty sure the economy goes up when everyone buys new bikes... except Mondrakers and Poles, that is--those take a noticeable drop

 edit** the Pole actually didn't take a drop

 Might just be me, but Chris akrigg's trail trials has always been my favourite riding video, from the music to the location and the riding, it feels like he's just out for a ride but in the most badass way possible. I don't often get jealous of other people's skills, but his ability to bypass lifting bikes over fences and stiles really does evoke a bit of the green eyed monster in me.

 150 views an hour.. for 9 years?? Bonkers. (Did I get that math right?!)
  • 2 0
 @tobiusmaximum: yes sir you did. Haha. And it is bonkers they did that without YouTube recommendations or ad revenue. Maybe it didn't make the list because it wasn't a sponsored video????

 Thank god someone else noticed this missing. This deserves to be on the list if for no other reason than being one of the only mountain bike segments of the past decade to leave the mountain bike world and go mainstream (the other notable one being “Danny MacAskill’s Imaginate”... which is also missing).

@edspratt eh?

 I haven't seen anyone mention Ride the Fall by @dpeacock and Evan Schwartz from way back in 2011 but it's so good. It actually made me get back into mountain biking after over 4 years of not riding. Sitting in my grad school apartment procrastinating I went on Pinkbike for the first time in years and there it was. Watched it and went "shit, I've gotta do that again!" Dusted off the old XC bike and rode the next day, 8 years later and I haven't looked back, thanks dudes!

 Evan Schwartz is so good.
  • 8 1
 Still no Danny Mac's Way Back Home though Frown classic one of this decade that basically brought trials riding to the masses
  • 7 0
 April 2009 is what brought trials to the masses Wink

 @Mondbiker: I meannnn obviously but with regard to this decade

 Yeah because there are so many whinging whining babies who visit this website.

 Aggy had a B-Roll edit years ago that was always my favorite whenever I went somewhere with a nice TV and sound system. The vibe of the edit, as much as Aggy's riding, makes that one a favorite for me. I'm not sure a non-rider would appreciate it like a lot of these top 60 videos though.

 Reece Potter that edit is still one of my favourites

 i can see now why In The Know is so popular. thats a superb piece of work.

 I was surprised there were no Dan Milner videos. Not as gnarly as the ones shown here, but definitely inspiring for bikepacking and definitely extreme enduro. His trip to the wakhan corridor with Matt Hunter was especially good

 Glad to see R-Dogs 3 bikes video!
Stilling missing two killer edits though. HIGHLY RECOMMEND PEOPLE WATCH THESE!

 One of my favourite edits is still Yeti's "Proven here"/South West. Captures so brilliantly the utter beauty of mountainbiking (and nature).

 Am I missing something?? Between this and the first 50, HOW IN THE **** has IMAGINATE not made the list??!
  • 2 0
 89 million views; nearly over 20 million MORE than The Ridge, and over 50 million more than Wee Day Out!

Don't see any way Imaginate doesn't make the top edit list...

 Transcend with Braydon Bringhurst was one of my favorite in the past couple years.
