 So rare to see Freeride videos of people in natural environmental now a-days. It's all in controlled environments with wooden jumps, sometimes we forget where the roots of the sport came from, and that's dirt and making your own lines through the mountains.

 @scrippsranchDJ ..."keep the mountain in mountain biking." ==> Paul B when he landed his double backflip in natural terrain Wink

 No that was a quote from Vanderham in the 2008 dvd Seasons.

 most of the shots lasted less than a second. how short do they think our attention spans are?

 Well I can understand that fast cuts in edits convey speed , but it didn't match the music and the shots (which were gorgeous) in this one. I wanted to see more of that sweet mother nature Razz

 Coming from the Santa Cruz/aptos area and seeing cam on nitro circus and pinkbike is such a huge inspiration for me. It makes me proud that he's such a huge image in the sport and makes me love riding and the sport

 You can't use Virgin, UT without Bender in the background dropping off a cliff. Landing may vary.
