 Its amazing to think that we get all of this hard work and time for free. Amazing work everyone!
  • + 5
 Except that it's to promote the riders/brands etc, it's not exactly altruistic. Not complaining though!
  • + 4
 Yeah but these bigger bike companies fund the videos you're watching, and most likely wouldn't be happening if they didn't. Look at how much funding Specialized puts into transporting their riders around the world for photo and video shoots, this is very healthy for this sport. Remember, there is no such thing as a free lunch, the money has to come from somewhere.
