Kilian Bron & Maxime Peythieu from Team MIA Santa Cruz welcome TRICKX US rider Ben CRUZ in Apt (south of France) for an enduro session "made in luberon".

During the two days of filming, the two frenchies took their US guest on some of the most famous trails in the French Colorado (French freeride's birthplace...) and then they shred local jumps made by locals. Thanks to the Parpaing crew for their help and their wondefull jumps!

Videographer: Antonin PERGOD (oqamy.VISUEL)
Riders: Kilian Bron, Maxime Peythieu, Ben Cruz
Music: Overwerk - Last Call

 That dirt looked amazing !
  • + 12
 God dam i love that dirt
  • + 17
 The dirt looked like a perfect mix of Whistler and Virgin Utah... Have I ever ridden either of those? "Well, not me personally, but a guy I know ..."
  • + 1
 Trying to keep up with Ben Cruz is like putting a Toyota Prius against a Bugatti Veyron....not gonna happen.
  • + 7
 Perfect combination of speed, hucks, and creative lines. Sick video!
  • + 6
 If whistler and Utah had a child then that child would be the dirt in this video.
  • + 2
 I can only imagine how that dirt will go when it's raining...
  • + 9
 Last thing we need is mountain bikers endorsing crap like McDonald's. sick riding though.
  • + 3
 Well just ask your mates Simmons, Schley and Tippie. They came a few times in SE France to ride the Little Colorado slopes (Kranked 2 &3). BTW, sediments are a mixture of goethite, hematite and kaolinite.

 that was awesome!!!! And really gets me stoked seeing this kind of riding on AM bikes instead of DH......I have a lot of learning and riding to do!!

 Those are claymores, 180mm travel so that's freeride bikes...
  • + 4
 false, jekyll.
  • + 6
 Actually one is a jekyll and the other 2 are nomads...That would be Ben Cruz riding with team MIA Santa Cruz (as stated in the title). Why on earth would team MIA Santa Cruz ride with claymores??
  • + 3
 The two French Riders are on the MIA team. Ben Cruz rides for cannondale ( see the hat he's wearing in the beginning), same team as Mark Weir and Jerome Clementz.

 Wonder where the cave goes
  • + 15
 I was so pumped to see them go shred inside a cave! What a bummer!
  • + 8
 off to the batcave
  • + 18
 Ok.. That does it.. I'm ready for summer... come on UK... stop being $hit now
  • + 4
 It's officially Spring now, bring it on!
  • + 6
 and its now officially raining!!
  • + 1
 The UK should have its own forum room, seeing as we only have 2 seasons in the year... wet,.... .... and lethal

 I hope the ad placement money from McDonalds will cover your colon cancer treatments.
  • + 3
 Hahah you've killed me with this oneWink
  • + 6
 Mmmm... SC Nomads built for French Enduro, and Canondale's Jekyl... Love the fact that these are 160mm bikes getting the work done! Shows what good engineering has brought us... Even more impressively is that these pro riders are rocking that brown pow with such skill on shorter travel bikes than DH rigs. I, kind ladies and gentlemen of pinkbike, am envious. Lot's of work for me to do to get on their level.
  • + 9
 Now I'm hungry annd want to shred.
  • + 4
 Great video, but like many videos on here makes me so jelous and eager but anyone else really wanna see where that cave/tunnel goes at the end?
  • + 6
 That trail is so 3D.
  • + 1
 Great video...fast and technical riding, mixed with big gaps and over unders...should have been 3 croissants an no McDonald's sh-t food (although I understand the purpose) but that's like saying your proud to be a retard!!
But I digress...awesome video guys!!!!
  • + 1
 rad as f*ck video !
I'm not hating on it, but is there any way we can stop people from thinking they go for a "enduro ride" or have "an enduro session" as it is now a race format of timed downhills with uphill liason stages.. people are getting confused as!

 And here, we see, as light turns to night, These peculier creatures, return to their caves. this member of the animal kingdom is unique, in that it may never touch the floor with its feet, for its entire life. Prefuring to scavenge round tools, to move around, through, and even over obsacles... The frenchman, is indeed A very stange animal....
  • + 5
 Thats the coolest video ive seen in a while.
  • + 2
 My vote for VOTM! Smile OK, that's because I'm french... but not only! That vid really kicks ass! Riding and filming are top notch and I love the music too!

 the satire on the croissants vs the big mac was hilarious, some cultures are def' more refined, and holy shit their dirt is red, like really RED!
  • + 4
 Added to my favourites in the first 20 seconds.... epic!!
  • + 5
 The croissant and burger bit? wasn't that good
  • + 5
 First 40 seconds then..... Smile When they hit that gap, then it was added to favourites!!
  • + 3
 I love the 50sec mark. Last rider misses the turn, no worries, just jump over it. Probably intentional but still sick.
  • + 4

 Sick edit! Perfect mix of riding, jumps, and good cinematography, makes me want to ride.

 Red dirt ...must be a French thing.. Sick vid ...red dirt+pinning it+sick corner blasting=France?

 Georgia has red clay like that but not the terrain. It's wonderful stuff with good drainage that never turns to cracked, dusty hardpack. It does stain your clothes, though.
  • + 1
 I want to ride Georgia than...

 Definitely cool to see AM Bikes ripping up sweet trails like this! I have a Santa Cruz Nomad also and no one believes the limits I can push it too!

 These guys are so fast yet playful on their bikes. I would love to have a fraction of those skills.

 I think it is the TRICKX sponsor they share. Ben is still on Cannondale. Take a look at his Jekyll with Lefty www.bikerumor.com/2013/03/01/cannondale-testing-26-lefty-super-max-long-travel-one-legged-fork
