 I drifted into a daydream and for a minute I was behind them! .........waaaayyy behind them.
  • + 7
 i dunno who's riding that bike, but it is NOT james doerfling. that dude is clearly wearing a tshirt with sleeves on it... and we all know doerfling only wears tank tops for maximum "road rash? ain't nobody got time for that!" potential. what gives here? what is this demonry!?!?

 There must be a lot of trail maintenance going on out there. As I watch a lot of these videos it looks like there is a lot of excessive pumping and twitching threw corners in order to make spray for the cameras. It wouldn't take many runs like this to rut everything up. If riders spray out of all of these burms, is there any trails left smooth after a week? Or am I just imagining this?
  • + 23
 Heaven forbid that an off road mountain biking trail would be some thing other than a BMX track.
  • + 4
 I think you're right; they're showing off for the camera a bit, but I also think part of the spray issue is that they ride at such super human speeds that their tires move dirt even without their intention. It also looked like some maintenance/building was being done at the beginning of the video, which is always good to see.
  • + 7
 There is an element of showing off for the camera but as the guy above says , when you ride at warp factor 10 shits gonna fly either way. Also some builders actually deliberatly leave corners loose to be roosted , I know I do .
  • + 3
 A lot of that trail looked freshly dug too. It needs some tamping down, but in the mean time stuff is going to be loose.
  • + 3
 Mmmmm loamy trails

 What you don't know is that Linden is a builder and a lot of the trails featured here are ones he's built or maintains. Also when you live in an area that doesn't see droves of riders, these "extra" skids don't have the same result as heavier trafficked riding areas.

 Can't beat the feeling of drifting thru laomy/sandy turns , it's what biking is all about for me.
  • + 5
 ^Brules right. Linden is a great builder and will be sure to maintain anything he builds.
  • + 2
 In the Great Northwest, we let the rain pack down a lot of the work! This works well for trails that are low profile or kept secret!
  • + 2
 Also there aren't quite as many people in the Sunshine Coast as there in many other places hence the trails tend to get time to re-loam
  • + 2
 Not as much traffic means the trails don't get thrashed as quickly as more used trails do.
  • + 0
 loam is like pedalling through a mattress with sand filled tubes. I prefer the hard dirt. Still, loam looks cool on the descent.
  • + 1
 loam is like riding carpet

 @Corona, your right! Brule, sorry man your talking out your ass! No doubt your friend can do what he wants with his trail, but it is easy to see that trail is trashed after only ONE video. And the bigger result is a lot of riding going on other trails tries to emulate that ROOST lust and berm busting (catchy i know). Again, you build it and maintain it...do whatever you want with your trail, but don't even try to argue that this style of riding is anything but trail maintenance disaster. @leelau, i am very surprised you would make the comment that you did. All the trail maintenance you have done over the years....and you seriously believe that because only a few riders are hitting the trail that this is ok? Really?

 whoa whoa nature. I don't like the roosts and gratuitious cutties myself but the bottom line is that its his trail and if he wants to destroy it then it's his trail to destroy. As for other people getting the bad message; Im sympathetic to that too but let's face it - all these videos have gratuitous cutties. Bagging on linden isn't going to change anything.

 It clearly shows that they didnt have so much fun cause their bikes werent carbon framed with 27.5 inch wheels.. video is a masterpiece
  • + 5
 Knollys - check
Hard rock - check

Doerfling - check
EPIC - DOUBLE CHECK!

This is like a sequel to Mining For Nugs. Smile

 Hey, Linden!
Very impressive!! An extremely "top drawer" video. Your riding is such a pleasure to watch. Very fluid, strong and focussed. Also, pleased to hear you have inherited my love of Leppelin. Nice to see your talent and skills being honed in such a creative endeavor. Keep up the good work Linden, and your buddy did a great job too!
Love you, M
