Anthony is one hell of a rider. He's fast, determined and can corner like it's nobody's business. It has been a rough year for Anthony, he took a gnarly spill that concussed him. He was off the bike for a while, but now the newly turned pro is back on! Here he is aboard his dialed Transition Covert in Cascadia, Washington. Get Stoked and watch Anthony shred some of the northwest's best trails. Anthony rides for Transition Bikes, 100%, diety, and GoHuckYourself.com.

Fire it up

 hell yeah go anthony. Anthony dose more than ride these trails, hes put countless hours into making/maintaining them. Ive rode with him since high school and he use to be one of the worse riders. And now hes without a doubt one of the best.

 Hopefully he learned spelling and grammar better than you did.

 We were all the worst riders at one point or another.

 Hahaha! The funny thing is I originally had that song in the edit, but it didn't sound right to me. I guess I was wrong!!!

 Was hoping to hear Led Zeppelin, I was disappointed...

 "better be When the Levee Breaks..
.. ah shit"
  • + 0
 Oh man, I was thinking the same thing. It's time someone used that in a video. "If no one uses this, the levee's gonna break"

And because mumford and sons are gay i just muted it and put on when the levee breaks. way better vid then.

 I followed mfbeast12's advice. It did make the video better. Please don't call things gay when you don't like them though.

 Were you photoshopping out the zipline at 1:23?

 Yea! I was scampering up the hill trying to get out of the shot!! Lol

 ha thats legit! I almost didn't notice

 @FlowFarmers, Wow, that is one hell of a nice shot on the Zip-Line. In fact very professional. Nice job. Love the riding and the edit is very well done. I don't know about your profile but you can definitely turn your camera experience into something professional. I do admit that having a talented rider like Anthony does help things out a bit.

Great work to both of you. Job well done.

 That was a super rad shot, too bad it was only for a couple seconds. I don't know if i've seen a shot quite that good even from Anthill or any of those guys. I'd love to see a longer shot like that, through some good turns and stuff. It would be hard to do, but man it would be great!

 I couldn't find a single thing wrong with this video, straight up solid riding, filming and editing. Well done all.
  • + 6
 Pacific northwest just looks so damn fun!

 Yes I'm jealous I'm not living in the PNW and the trails here in CO are just awful! but how about we have some folk rip trails that are rough and blown out and not always groomed like a PGA golf course. Glad people put the work and wish the thoight and vision happened here instead of having horses on every trail with us bikers. Oh and no more Mumford and sons. They are terrible

 Sick trails, bike, riding, and filming. Coverts shred! Damn we got it good in the PNW.

 Transitions making all kinds of people fast. :p

Awesome video. I've got to add Cascadia to my bucket list.

 Nice to see our local trails out on another good edit.

 They look REAL good, and I'm sure the camera doesn't do them justice... Lucky you
  • + 1
 how many did you count sngltrkmnd? at least 3

 @scandall667 That's what I see as well. Is the first part the road approach from the plateau for the GR descent?
  • + 2
 I LOVE the PacNW. So lucky to live here. Nice vid!
  • + 1
 Note to self: NEVER use Mumford and Sons in an edit... shit's terrible, especially for an awesome edit like this.
  • + 9
 At least it's better than Radioactive...

 Such a great edit and riding! I also cant believe how inappropriate that whiny BS Mumford and Sons calls music is for ANY mtb edit, never mind the slay-a-thon taking place in this clip. Well, I guess it would work for a vid featuring 50+ dudes in lycra riding their 29ers slowly up hill.
  • + 8
 Thanks for all the constructive criticism everybody! Note to self, don't use Mumford and Sons!!
  • + 3
 I didn't mind the music, you have a great ability to produce good footage so I think you can use whatever music you believe suits the video.
  • + 5
 are you serious? mumford and sons works so well for this, loved the song choice.
  • + 3
 I think the clip works well with easy and hard music. The easy music gives a sense of flow and being in the zone while hard rock gives a shredding hard vibe. Great vid and riding.
  • + 1
 I don't necessarily think it needs to be hard rock or otherwise. In fact I kinda like the newschool bluegrass deal and think something like xavier rudd would have been sweet. Mumford and sons do not do the genera justice though, sorry but those guys are nothing but whiny drivel. Anyway, the edit is just sic minus the bad music!

 Tell me about the rack he's got on his truck.
  • + 2
 he built it, bolts in behind the tail gate and works real well.
  • + 2
 Thanks mike. I'll keep my eye out for his truck to get a better look at the rack. It's a good concept to keep the bikes from beating up the truck & vice versa.

 before i even seen riding (when I heard the music) I favorited this. Awesome video.
  • + 1
