Bas van Steenbergen is one of the world's best bike handlers, a Red Bull Rampage alumnus, and uses "slalom" riding to sharpen his ability to change direction — both vertically over jumps and horizontally between creative berms — with his newly-created "Dream Slalom" track in British Columbia's interior.

 I mean he's still looks pretty rad in my books, just hard to take him seriously.

 Wish Hyper would actually release a real mountain bike. They seem to have pros riding for them off and on but no bikes ever make it to public availability. Hard to consider them a mountain bike brand when they don't sell any real bikes.. That said the bike shown looks pretty awesome and the video was amazing.

 One of the best vid I've seen in a last couple of months, Riding, motion, edit, music... and all together sick movie!

 remove the music and this is a real challenge for Semenuk's RAW 100 Pt.2.

 huh? not. even. close.
  • + 2
 @stacykohut: not even close? They both have such a clean and precise handling, both so stylish even when riding straight lol. I would say they are on the same level of technique, but Semenuk has bigger bag of tricks.
  • + 3
 @raidenCZE: come on man, truth time here bro.................

semenuk has a way higher degree of difficulty in his tricks, and his style is again, another level higher than bas.

 The best cablecam work I have ever seen by quite a margin. Stitching so many cable shots together in that first sequence was genius.

 The nose manual always looks so stylish. No if I could figure out how to make mine look like his without a dropper post and a 400mm seat post on my rigid single speed in spandex Smile

 That was amazing to watch. Please, someone get Kris Fox out there on a BMX.

 I wanna shake the trail builders hands. That is one rad trail!
  • + 1
 Damn, you'd really want to have that figured out, wouldn't want to launch where he was scrubbing/manualing, or vise versa. Really technical riding.
  • + 2
 Bas is steely as hell, but I really really want to see Semenuk ride this. Would suit him super well.

 I don't know what trail this isbut crazier than any of semenuks

 Excellent clip! So much style, and that scrub at 1:50 was awesome.

I'm pretty sure it's the same one Zink was riding a couple years back.

 @BobbyHillbomb: Can get it at any Wal-Mart or Costco.

 The trail was the best!!!

 what makes this slalom? Nice classic Bas steeze.

 What doesn't make this slalom?

 @adanac14: there is only 1 line instead of 2, no gates
  • + 6
 @probikegeek: Maybe you're thinking of dual slalom
  • + 0
 @adanac14: didn't know there was a difference?
  • + 4
 @probikegeek: Slalom is another way of saying a fairly smooth downhill mtb trail which snakes from left to right. Dual slalom is just two of those put together for racing.
  • + 3
 I too did a double take on the word "slolam". Maybe it's a regional useage?? In BMX this is simply "riding trails". In MTB I'd describe this line as a unique flow trail with some jumps. Ah well. Looks like so much fun!!
