 I was somewhat disappointed there was no chainsaw and so much enduro.
  • + 4
 The chainsaw/skating footage is in the DVD! I got 100 left if anybody is interested.

 Holy snappers, finally some un groomed trails, this is unbelievably gnarly. Kenny Smith destroys the definition of steep and haggered. Oh and thank you sooo much for putting Slayer to this, so sick of horrible electronic music being put in edits. Also the lack of slomo is amazing, keeps it raw as fuck. Reminds me of when i started to ride.

 Christ on a Crutch I second that...all of that.

 Real mountainbiking on real roots on real rocks (if you catch my drift).
  • + 2
 Shit Off..! I only just learned what 'snapper' means in Canada...
  • + 2
 C'mon Canada, is nothing sacred its just a poor innocent fish for crying out loud.
  • + 2
 Yep, some great lines, Nice to see some footage of lines that they needed to take slow and pick their way down rather than the shred- huck- shred genre of riding and vids.

Glad to know there's others critical of "over-groomed" trails as well. Big built berms are fine for bike parks, but they make riders lazy. Brake, turn in, accelerate out on level or even off camber turns makes any trail more challenging to get right.

 Riding was cool and it's good to see some variation in music but this particular song didn't work with the riding in my opinion. Just didn't match the pace for the most part
  • + 1
 @kootenaycycles Kenny Smith reminds you of how you started to ride, you must be a decent rider. As a side note; That Prince George segment was gnarly.
  • + 2
 @sithbike, lol not at all, i started riding in the drop in era of mtb'ing and that style was what was really big. nice to see kenny reminding all of the new school groms that thats where there freeriding roots are from.

 For anyone wondering, chainsaw part is at 2:08 but you should probably watch the whole thing cause its badass www.pinkbike.com/video/251906

 Jeezy Creezy!! That is insane!
  • + 10
 Best video I've seen in awhile!!!!! If that doesn't get you right pumped to go ride you better sell your bike and take up lawn bowling.
  • + 10
 finally a video of killer riding a damned good music! None of that Canadian alanis morissette crap....
  • + 11
 Yes! Real music, that actually fits the riding. F'n Slayer! Not that shite disco hipster estrogenic crap. My bowl of salad just turned into a bowl of bacon.
  • + 3
 ^ Exactly what I planned to write.
  • + 10
 Damn I was really hoping to see him root around the lake on skates holding the chainsaw
  • + 1
 Yeah wtf
  • + 1
 go to bush leagues page and there is another vid for the bush league video that shows just what you wish for. And it looks fun...
  • + 8
 The steep sections were awesome and I am sure that the video doesn't do them justice.
  • + 6
 Holy shit, Im speechless, This is the best video I have seen in awhile. The whole time I was like no video has this much radness in it. So stoked for warm weather to start so I can ride more.
  • + 8
 Can't go wrong with some good 'ol SLAYER and SMITH shredding! \m/
  • + 4
 This was a long day shooting. Creeping dark before the dawn changing into moist of early morning, than the sunny noon and early afternoon. The sunlight is changing like vibes in a theatre. Amazing results.

 4 Things....

1. The first half of this is exactly what I imagine west cost of Canada riding to be like

2. I want to see a shot of him riding whatever they were digging of that cliff next to the waterfall

3. That guy is riding with a broken wrist?! What a loon!

4. That black demo looks like poop

 Props to his buddy sending it with a cast on his arm!
  • + 3
 to all that say the music sucks PISS OFF All the god dam videos now have shit hipster music or club beats. MORE METAL
  • + 1
 Yes please. Bring on the METAL!!! So many good Canadian bands to chose from as well. Cryptopsy, Despised Icon, Upheval, Beneath The Massacre, First Fragment and so on would be a good start.

  • + 1

  • + 4
 Slayer says fuck you and your bike license.

  • + 4
 Am I the only one who saw that Walker was wearing a cast?
  • + 2
 No. You were not the only one. He was also wearing suspenders...rad.
  • + 2
 RIP Jeff!! sick riding, i like that the riders are going back to that raw riding that we all love. And metal is the perfect compliment!
  • + 2
 Is it just me or does Walker Evans look a lot like a guy who was involved in the 2011 stanley cup riot in Vancouver? Is he riding a commencal?
  • + 5
 no you are wrong, he looks like one of the best young freeriders ever that is no longer in the scene now....
  • + 2
 in cognito lol
  • + 2
