24 Months Of Insanity is a recap of Dan Milner's Trail Ninja movies, packed with the out-takes, crashes, fails and stuff that was just a little too close to the line to put in the original film episodes. It's torment, pain and laughter from the four corners of the globe - from Afghanistan to Argentina, from Wales to Marin County and features Fabien Barel, Mark Weir, Hans Rey, Tibor Simai, Matt Hunter and more.

 Awesome hilarious honest adventure by mountain bike. Thanks for the rad videos Mr Milner!

I always find it funny how a new product announcement or the release of an expensive new bike can quickly generate 300+ comments and form very strong opinions, yet a recap of two years worth of adventure and antics around the globe musters a measly handful. Maybe there is just not much to say other than "Wow!" ? Or maybe people are incredibly jealous? Or maybe the majority of people commenting aren't really into actually riding and pedaling their bikes? Maybe Dan doesn't do enough back flips or throw enough roost?

 Well, if you have seen my backflips.. oh hang on there is one in the film. OK then its a front flip. OK it was more "sort of", than "sorted". I just do what I do.. go and shoot bike photos and make films while I am doing so. It takes me to great places, and I get to annoy a lot of people who probably wont work with me again. But you nailed what's great about the bike thing.. it is so diverse. So long as you lot keep asking for my videos so Epictv keep paying me to go make them, all will be well with the world (or a small slice of it at least). So I'm taking a couple of month pause from the series now so I can go to remote places and film some more.. but catch up on all the episodes over at epictv.com.. hey, did you catch my Morocco episode yet?

 Of course I did! Their trails look beautiful, and their bridges look scary. You've been to some incredible places on your bike.
Parts of the Kirroughtree trails you rode in Scotland look most similar to a lot of the trails and terrain around me in Connecticut, which was cool to see. So many of the landscapes you have been on look so alien to me, but Scotland seemed very familiar to a lot of the trails in New England. Are there any places you've been where the terrain was not like anything else you've ever experienced, and really cant be found anywhere else? Sedona AZ stands out in my mind for me, but I've been far fewer places than you! lol
Looking forward to where you go next.

 After the recent failed referendum, Scotland essentially is New England.

 Now I'm no meteorologist/geologist (I'm actually a Marine Biologist, strange but true), but I'm guessing different places in the world might seem similar thanks to similar latitude and climates they share. Anyhow, I'm gunning for Upper Mustang, Nepal as being perhaps the most "different" and unique place I've been riding bikes. Amazing! And definitely NOT like the Peak District of England.

 Its people like Dan that make mountain biking the sport it is, who go out and have amazing adventures on their bike while still having great fun. Something for us all to look up to!

 I can't explain why but there's something soothing and comforting about watching lanky English people in beautiful places whinging.

The guy makes me think of Karl Pilkington.

In a good way. (that's a compliment)

 Seriously amazing trips and videos. I don't think us normally people can properly comprehend those trips but I am in awe and doing my best to try and get my head around those crazy adventures Smile

You can click anywhere in the video and get non stop gems Smile It sounds a bit weird... but "MTB James Haskell" was what popped in to my head with all the funny comments.... Dan are you related to James Haskell? I mean it in the most complementary way! Smile

 This what biking and traveling is all about experience and up and down ( on bike and on emotion). Thank you Dan keep doing it while many of us are stucked on a office chair 8 hours a day. We can see that you are enjoying this time for everyone of us office rat!

 Amazing fun, I like his sarcasm, and telling the true about the ups and downs of the trip. Thank god these guys are good riders, I would hate to brake my colar bone like I did last week in Afganistan.

 Probably one of the coolest ways to make mtb videos: make them funny! One of the greatest guys I have ever watched!

 Ha thats funny. You know my original idea was to do the whole series with a ninja head scarf on so nobody ever knew who the hell I was. Thats hilarious. Boy am I glad I didnt do that when I was carrying or riding a bike in stupidly hot places. Instead you got to see my curiously handsome good looks and dental perfection.

 If I only knew more what is funny and what's less, you'd all cry because of laughing. Writing this, I was almost sure it won't be perceived as funny at all. I have the same issues in my native. Now it's kind of a little bit more sorted.
