Full Video: Into the Dirt of Mount Etna

Would you ride a bike down one of the world's most active volcanoes? Team InFocus would!



Towards the end of this year's harsh winter, a small band of brothers went in search of warmer slopes upon which to let loose on their big bikes.

And warmer slopes they found, in the form of one of the world's most active volcanoes, the infamous Mount Etna on the east coast of Sicily, Italy. Now listed as a world heritage site, Mount Etna has shaped the lives of those who live in its shadow, not to mention the terrain that team InFocus took as their home for a week.

Check out the epic accompanying photo story courtesy of Toby Cowley.

 Mountain biking does not get much closer to skiing than this. Awesome - Thumbs up for making it so far! Really decent riding, well shot and you added nice atmosphere to it. That was entertaining - thank you!

 Great Video! Amazing Riding....... I dont know what it is but for some reason i dont like it when guys ride with full race clothing when your not in a race. If your in a race im ok with it but when your going on a chill session with friends to have fun and just shred why dress like a racer? If its just to show off your sponser then just wear a shirt the says your sponser's name on it, i dont know just my opinion

 I walked down Mount Etna years ago. Spent the entire walk wishing I'd brought my bike. Amazing terrain.

 Dear Scott, I would like you to make me a bike that I can travel the world with, ride down a volcano, terrorize the trails, hit big bumps and jumps and look totally sick while doing so. That is all, thank you and good day. Pete

 Folk steaming down a giant dusty hill with a few turns and bunny hops doesnt really do ot for me. Wheres the big gaps and danger lines? No doubt they are incredible riders though.
