 And to imagine, tossing that out in the middle of nowhere where serious medical help is a half day away on the best case scenario.... what a fucking maniac. This is just insane all around.

 Could've just waited 10 years for global warming to do its thing. There will be a bike park up there by then.

 Thank you. I don't think enough people mention the positives of global warming

 There'll be a bike park there alright, but by then we'll all be eating cricket-based foods for it's protein content.

 @unconvinced: What's wrong with cricket-based foods? Sounds like they could make good energy bars.
  • + 2
 @srjacobs: I've had the Exo energy bars made from cricket flour. They do not taste good. I'm not a picky eater and I'll try just about anything, but those just taste weird.

 Please release this on BluRay. Watching it on a computer screen won't do it justice. I'm willing to pay for that right now, definitely excited!

 @Regamaro: It probably could, haven't tried. But that's not the point. When I want to hear a certain tune I pop a cd in the cd player and press play. When I want to watch a movie I pop in the dvd or blue ray in the right player and press play. Pretty simple, works great. Having to go through all these menus takes away from the experience. Sure I do have a device to play mp3 music when on the go because of its portability. But the simplicity of a disc player better matches what I'm about to experience. Sorry, it must just be me but well, I can always ask, right?

 Whatever incredible the picture are, MTB freeriding isnt't probably the best thing to do in this unspoilt place (learn few about Axel Heiberg Island...)
  • + 9
 This type of activity (sick as it looks!) in the far North is a bit troubling... I know some of the islands only a few 100kms to the south are very sensitive to any physical disturbance. Dig in a jump, make a deep rut? You can permanently change the thermal regime of the underlying permafrost very easily, That can then cause some big slumps and hillslope failures as the ground underneath thaws. Even if nothing slumps those roost marks will be there for 20 years easy.

Still going to watch it! I just hope the next rampage site won't go there.

 @mpope: It won't and how about you and others questioning it ask the people involved. A lot of planning goes into these trips and obviously they're not going to allow riding in sensitive areas. At the end of the day, if people were gun-ho about preservation and responsible riding, freeriding would not exist, freeride would have never existed, most of the "classic" lines and trails would never have been built and MTBing would be nowhere near where it is today. I find this all hilarious from people like Etienne whose profile is filled with riding in the French Alps, no doubt pioneered by those who have "spoiled" the nature of the area by constructing trails he now enjoys. Quit the pretend preservation bullshit. If you were really into preservation, you'd be against MTBers, hikers, horseback and any other human intrusion into the wilderness.

 @scott-townes: Respectfully disagree. I am a permafrost scientist so I will only speak to this system but it is more fragile than it looks, that's my whole point. Ride and build trail but we need to make the realization that we need to balance use with ecology especially IF we want the sport to grow. I am fine with big mountain lines in places that will tolerate them and recover. Now I know no one is going to ride Axel Heiberg Island for their next bank holiday, to get one twin otter load from Resolute to Axel Heiberg is around $10 000, and I also know that a few riders hiking and riding for a month won't end the world but its a perception thing. "We can ride with impunity" isn't a great tagline for trying to get more trail in more places.
  • + 6
 @mpope: totally agree.
  • - 1
 @mpope: I'm not about riding with impunity. They're doing this in partnership with scientists and experts that work and essentially live in that area. I tend to trust those people showing them the area and where to ride than people sitting at home and assuming. There's no doubt serious harm can be done but they're taking a lot of precautions into trips like these to prevent such serious harm.
  • + 3
 @scott-townes: I Dont'know if it's hilarious, but assimilate freeriding in Axel Heiberg Island with trail riding riding in the Alps is obvious bad faith. Most of trails in the Alps are here from centuries, built by generations of inhabitants no to ride and now most of them are share by walker et MTBikers.
For example on Axel Heibergscientist discovered mummified >30M wood, unique in the world. This environnement is not resilient. There's not permanent settlment on this island, in and around the Alps millions of people are living. Even if this sponsored trip is not a disaster, I can consider it's not a example and we have to look beyond the pictures.

 reminded me of The art of flight. I hope they used a bit less of the ultra-slo-mo and the heli-filming a heli-filming a plane shots.

 Imagine you unpack and you are missing your front wheel..... #parkinglotproblems

 So plane drops them off and set to come back in a month. Climbing up those mountains carrying the bikes would be brutal. Then they have to ride back down. And repeat. Superhumans, wow.

Far north of the arctic circle and land is not covered in ice/snow?

 @allenfstar: You do realize that portions of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, the Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Iceland are part of the arctic circle, right?
  • + 0
 I’m not sure what your point is. I was making a comment about the glaciers receding. I didn’t make any mention of where the Arctic circle is@therealtylerdurden:
  • + 0
 @allenfstar: the point is that not the entirety of the Arctic Circle is ice, and it was exactly that way before this global warming fad came along.
  • + 0
 The lady in there states that the glacier they are riding on / near has receded more than a kilometer and a half. Must be just a fad though @therealtylerdurden:

 @allenfstar: changes have occurred in both temperature and the ice pack for the history of this planet. Correlation does not equal causation. Your Prius is not saving the world lol

 When the aircraft you are in is coming in at a stall pitch with what looks like a decent amount of throttle... and it is saying "Minimum!...Minimum!"... That right there is a full pucker E ticket ride.

 Why do they look so sad and serious? They were not left alone for two weeks there to face whatever is coming to them, it's a huge expedition with medics, radios and rescue ranger. Hardly could be called an adventure even.

 Yeah, you go ahead and do it and let us know your opinion afterward... oh wait, too much of an adventure for you? You don't say.

 Because Mountain biking is serious business! #IFHT
