"Silver Star is definitely the place that I’ve ridden my bike more than anywhere else, it’s actually the place I rode some downhill for the very first time as well. Over the years it’s cool to see the bikepark progress, they’ve added a bunch of new trails and it really seems to be taking off. Doing this project was pretty awesome, the trail crew took us out a couple of times early in the morning to get some good light and then the business manager would pick us up in the evenings. It’s awesome to have such a cool group of people all around the mountain that are completely dedicated to making this bike park a success. The trail crew always seems to be stoked on feedback and will actually use it to improve their trails. We got to film a new trail in progress, Jedi Mind Tricks, and its going to be a good one! I always truly love riding this place and I hope this video shows it." - Bas van Steenbergen

 agreed. I got so excited when I heard battery and then it changed...... Still super Steeze riding though

 The riding is amazing, but the whole music change is pretty gash... completely throws off all tempo/atmosphere built up in the first 45seconds of the video.

 im probably the only one who thinks silverstar gets pretty boring real quick. Don't know if you can even call that mountain biking, more like downhill bmxing... its just jumps, berms, smooth tracks and more jumps and berms. Way rather be riding some loam in the backcountry than doing another whip on my 200th lap on pipe dream
