Video: Joel Ducrot Hunts for the Edge

Jul 18, 2019
by SCOTT Sports  

The Edge…There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others - the living - are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still out there.

 WOW! If you suffer from epileptic seizures don´t watch that video!

I like it, reminds me of a prodigy song: fast, hard, crazy, over the top - yet after it you feel calmer and more relaxed then before

 Exactly. From purely cinematic POV this is a gem. I love watching raw videos as much as the next guy, but this is a breath of fresh air. Great camera work and very cool editing. Not a great fan of the music tho... And, from a biking POV, this is also a gem. After watching i cannot recap exactly what i saw, scene to scene, but i am sure happy i saw it.

 Agreed, nice work but what I don't get is how in a couple of places we see a close up of his thumb on top of the bar while he's riding! What the heck?! Kinda let's it down...

 actually really liked the style of this! But I didn't need the workout sequences in there and the fact that this video has asbolutely nothing to do with the "built for versatility" slogan Big Grin

 too artsy sorry, just make a raw vid with open corners some roots rocks and jumps in real speed with the sound of wheels and tires,add just a pinch of slowmo with flying dirt and rock -done. saves you money too

 Why not something different after all? All MTB videos look the same nowadays, I feel this one totally refreshing.
This is cinema level right here !
