 You can't tell me what to do! Too much slo-mo!!!
  • + 1
 Sorry but there was too much slo mo. Just show the (*&$%ing riding already.
  • + 15
 Dynamatt, meant to prop you, not neg, damn iPad. Sick riding, but the whole video doesn't need to be slo mo. 3 minute video with 7 tricks. Bring on the negs, but my ADD was kicking in and I became distracted by my wife talking... A really good vid can block her out.

 @EMR52, Pinkbike doesn't want to hear about your marital issues...

 too much slo-mo

 @Josefe: False.

 the slo-mo is what made it so cool, being able to look and the little detail that goes into every trick and how hard it actually is to pull that stuff off.
Anyone notice the chairs at 30 seconds? haha best seats in the house right there

 I'll admit the filming is insane and some pretty next level stuff, but really it can be as good filming while showing tricks more. Don't get me wrong, I'm super stoked to see this and it's sick but having the last trick without being able to see the landing is sometimes pretty annoying!

 30 seconds of footy, 3 min of awesome! that step-down flip was flat out dialed. cant wait to see were MTB's little bro will be in 3 years.

 You can't complain about slow motion when Larocque is involved, he nails it every time.

 I WANNA FLY WITH SLO MO TOO!

 Wicked sick front flip!

 Slo-mo has it's place, and I think it went really well with this video.

 There was only about 40 second's of riding there.....

 This kid is SIIIIIICK...he should go to the hospital and get himself checked out.

 A nice big thank you to all the builders at the end of the video would have been nice!!! Good riding though Smile

 Amazing filming, amazing skills, but it should have been called "Anthony Messere Rides More Dirt Jumps... on Vancouver Island". More mountains please. Besides our coastal rainforest backdrop that riding could have been done anywhere else by Messere, kinda missed the point of the Island.
  • + 1
 Not saying he is a bad rider but that was a boring edit, this kid has been riding forever parents and grandparents took him wherever he wanted and always bought him bikes so I'm glad to to see their hard work has paid off this kid slays it
  • + 1
 Im amazed at how high he boosts off that big hip at crankworks, seeing that in person was something else. For a kids who weighs less than all the other competitors in the field to boost that high is a testament to his skill on a bike. Cant wait to see what a few years of experience will bring to his bag of tricks.
  • + 2
 The entire time I'm thinking to myself, "Who pulled off such a sick edit?!" And then I saw the graphic at the end. Big surprise....
  • + 1
 Too little appreciation for the filmers and editors. Slow-mo is sick and the cinematography is fantastic and the riding is insane. Put them together and you have one sick edit. Too much slow-mo my arse!
  • + 4
 God damn this kid doin` sick things!
  • + 2
 Bäääm ! So stoked to see a great edit of him. Such a freakin Steez. Mind Spark is on Top off their Game now. Cant wait for the next thing

 This is as good of a reason as any to stop working for the day and watch this video over and over.
  • + 1
 Haters gonna hate! Lol for all you non Groms who know how we'll he actually killed it good work for the rest of you who can probably barly ride a bike, just get stoked on riding! Ps slow-mo is dope!

 I've seen a lot of backflips in vids, but the way that shot was crafted at 2mins made it look fresh and Huuuuuuuuuuuugggggggeeeeeee

  • + 3

 not saying messere is a bad rider i think he's amazing especially for his age but ive kinda grown tired of watching him ride, his edits are basically the same, sick tricks on some dj's then a cool frontflip, its cool but its getting old in dj vids i think
  • + 2
 Especially because when you think of Vancouver, the first thing you think of is not manicured jumps. It'd be cool to see him get brought under the wing of somebody like the Claw who would teach him how to use his talents for something more interesting.
  • + 1
 Don't forget the bars to tuck...
  • + 0
 The kid is slope/DJ rider...its what he gets paid to do. Pretty sick that he was pulling off front flips, 3 bar spins etc on a trail rather than a dirt jump section. BTW...he is on Vancouver Island so the terrain different then "Vancouver riding". Finally...correct me if I am wrong but the dirt jumps in the beginning of the edit were dug by "the Claw's" so in a way Claw is helping him to do something interesting.
  • + 1
 I doubt Claw had anyhing to do with this edit. And I get your point,
nobody said it is uncool to pull tricks like that, my point was we see
the same tricks from him over and over... Basically he made a living
on like 10 tricks and the ability to boost and jump like a boss...
Hope you're reading this, damn Pinkbike why no notifications?Frown
  • + 1
 doubt claw had anything to do with this? When a Red Bull rider shows up on Van Island I am pretty sure he/she spends some time with the Claw. As for AM using the same 10 tricks over and over again...I am not really sure what the problem is? He is a top ten rider getting edits doing what he is good at. Is it getting old? I would suggest the people pumping out the edits of AM doing the "same tricks over and over" would strongly disagree.

 ghostrider95 cleared things up for me. Anthony Messere is not a freerider. He's just a dirt jumper and slope rider.

This is freeride: www.pinkbike.com/video/24007

Thanks.
