Video: Halloween Spooktacular

Oct 29, 2013
by Thomas Gaffney  
After taking to the infamous Cannock Monkey Trail our two protagonists stumble into the path of the dreaded downhill demon AKA Eliot Machin. It is here that the pair try, with all their might, to avoid the clutches of the evil doer by escaping down the Upper Cliff trail. But alas, the beast is powered by a force not of this world & the tricky rock gardens prove too much for Tolley, our first explorer. After falling victim to the demon's supernatural speed he is transformed into a deathly figure, subservient to his demon master. As the two gain pace, Headley spins out, leading to what surely was a gruesome demise.

 @motoboy36 I don't get the "So that's what the Fox says" comment. Help me out on that one. Is that like a childrens nursery rhyme?
  • + 3
 @ridesmoothbro Its a lyric from a Norwegian band called Ylvis. It was a play on words between Fox the company, and the song.

 Ask Richard Cunningham. While your at it - see if he knows where to find Black Diamond level Halloween gear.

 There you go....buy a 29er, end up a zombie.
  • + 10
 No, chances are if you buy a 29er you're already a zombie!
  • + 41
 To be honest that was scarier than any other horror movie I've seen. For those XCers to be pushed to downhill while being chased by an enduro rider, it's jaw dropping

 This is how I feel when a dog walker gives me evil looks when I'm riding in my local woods in places where bikes are forbidden! I shit myself and sprint home.
  • + 14
 that pumpkin slash at 2:02 was epic

 Being chased by a spooky rider is no excuse for cutting corners or littering.
  • + 8
 Those fools! If you want to escape from a headless rider on an enduro and you are on a short travel 29er, you should ride UP the hill! He must have bewitched those poor souls into thinking they could out downhill him. What a great video. Thanks for making my day!

 Good to see cannok getting air time . Need more vids on cannok please

 no watching this again to scary
  • + 2
 Here's what I learned:

1. Ride a 26 - make out ok.
2. Ride a 29 - end up screaming and dying in the end.
3. Watch this vid over and over trying to understand the words of that song.... "grrrr blllaaaaaaa rrooooooooooaaaaarrrrrrr..."

 No knee pads ! That demon is scary....

 Think it would have been cool if the demon rider was wearing black all the way down his legs. The shorts kind of detracted from the effect they were after Wink

 I got to say that big 29er is really scary.

 Dude? A guy from the record company just called, they want the lyrics of all songs on the album attached to the contract before they sign it. I started writing them down but I got stuck here - how do you write that sound? - ghrrrrroooooo? or blhhhhhhhhooo? or ooohhhhrrrhooooohrhrrrhrhrooo? - I think go with ghrrrroooooo, because the ohrhhorhohro fits only the bonus song about Al-Qaeda
