 It was ok but I would have liked to see him waking up, loading/unloading a pickup truck and slow motion pushing up the hill.
  • + 36
 Yeah man, and where was the 30 second mid video high-five's and chest bumps section? I mean, who wants to watch a mountain biking video that just shows someone riding a mountainbike? Madness!
  • + 86
 And we have no idea how R-dog puts on his goggles! Not to mention his coffee brewing technique is still a mystery..
  • + 32
 Perhaps this was just the raw "filler" footage. Hopefully they will release a final edit with all the actual important stuff built around the filler segments in this trial release.
  • + 27
 And why didn't he explain what really drives him to get out and ride? WHAT IS HIS MOTOVATION?! No one can shred like that unless they explain it in the beginning of the video.....those are the rules....
  • + 14
 yeah, where are the panning nature shots and scenic and artsy shots of random shit near the trail? how am i supposed to envelope myself into the picture if i don't fully understand the Aura of the trail? and no long convoluted message about wisdom and inner peace to help me understand his life's experience.

MAN f*ck THIS!!! YOU CAN'T JUST HAVE A CLAPPED OUT RAW SHREDDIT AND THINK PEOPLE WILL LIKE IT

So joke. Much Sarcasm.
  • + 2
 I wish there was more slow mo, nothing is more badass than taking really fast shots, and slowing them right down....so you know what's going on of course!

 nah, but those are kinda wicked sometimes. especially over rock gardens. you can watch how the riders move, and for engineers, how the suspension moves.

 He made it humanly possible...

 Fukin roost eh

 THAT FLATSPIN 360 OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!!?
  • + 58
 One of the most stylish 360s I ve ever seen, no doubt.

 Opposite 360 please .
  • + 23
 was that a man or a rocket ship?
  • + 12
 Aptos 360...not oppo @vl95
  • + 22
 That last loam section was one the dirtiest things I've ever seen!
  • + 10
 I so love watchin' freeride guys tear up trails. Sooooo much steezo! Awesome job Howie. Fast & loose!!!
  • + 4
 Sooo that was badass!! I want to go ride right now!!

 I need to find this trail, WHERE IS IT!!!!

 "I don't know if I like this whole winning thing too much"
  • + 40
 It's really obvious that ess-ram just slammed this out to capitalize on R-Dog's whip-offs win... But its so rad I can't hate it. R-dog, you win.
  • + 42
 Why do mountainbikers always analyse why videos are uploaded? Almost every video is made for commercial reasons thats the game!
If pinkbikers could just once stop hating on commercialising while loving new inventions that'd be great.
  • + 13
 Well then Kudos to Sram.
  • + 1
 Does anyone knows where this was filmed,like near which City?
  • - 2
 Somewhere near Santacruz...
  • + 6
 @Pasivoelkel I totally agree with you. I really don't understand why something being a commercial makes it any less awesome? Pinkbiker's do realize that the only reason we have such awesome gear is because there is money in selling it right?

 AS-SRAM's never done anything really "new". :s
  • + 28
 Haven't been a big fan of R-dog in the past. That just changed. Haven't seen a vid that made me that pumped to ride in a long time!!! Insanely good.
  • + 22
 Why haven't you been a fan of R-Dog??!
  • + 9
 I kinda agree. I think it was in life-cycles where he said "this is aptos man. we ride bikes, its all we do". For some reason at that point I totally undeservedly decided I didnt like him much. Really cannot tell you why. I must admit I even took a certain pleasure in seeing semenuk slap him in the face while stood on a ladder in Not Bad. I feel bad about that.

Now I think he's awesome. Couldn't tell you what has changed. But I'm sorry R-Dog, I regret the year I spent mildly disliking someone I've never met. Now I think you're great, even tho I still haven't ever met you. I'm sure this will change your life drastically and you will now sleep better at night knowing that some brit you have never heard of has changed his tune. If I ever meet you I'll buy you some haribo or something.

 That was insane riding for sure and its sad that I'll never be able to ride like that. He held some high speeds and overall looked flawless. I hate when non-mountain bikers say, "how can you spend that much on a mtb bike and it doesn't even have a motor??? How can that even be fun???" I'd like to show those idiots this video and more like it and ask them to tell me it looks like he's having just a horrible time on a mtb bike or that he's not having fun! They just don't get it....

Garbriel-mission9, I couldn't picture who R-Dog was but I knew the quote you stated, " this is aptos...." and it was bothering me because I knew it wasn't Life Cycles (love that one, awsome in blu-ray) and googled him to see what he looked like. R-Dog said that quote in Strength In Numbers which is also awsome. Life Cycles and Strength In Numbers are easily my two favorites.
  • + 1
 Ahh, makes sense, I got those two dvds at the same time, watched them both a million times and now haven't watched either in a while. Saying that, its bank holiday weekend coming up....
  • + 6
 No reason really. It's was never a thing if me not liking him - always seems like a nice dude. Probably more that I hadn't seen a lot of footage of him doing riding that I enjoy or can relate to.
  • + 3
 If you ever get the chance to meet R-Dog you'll like him even more. Such a chill guy.
  • + 1
 Joke or not?
  • + 3
 Not a joke. He wrongly accused me of poach
  • - 2
 Ahh man that sucks. Guess you've had some different experiences with him.
  • + 26
 Someone knows how to have a fun on their bike. Also such a stylish rider
  • + 2
 This is what fun looks like. You can't ride like that and not smile.
  • + 2
 I can't ride like that. period.
  • + 11
 R-Dog has definitely upped his game in the style & skills department... Thanks. Makes me feel even worse about mine.
  • + 4
 Same with Logan Peat. Coincidence?
  • + 8
 I can't explain why I' ve never liked him that much, no real reason, but HOLY SHIIIT ! He knows how to ride like a man ! Awsome skills, that speed, that style at 0:32 and the rest is so dialed ! That's what I call Freeride.
  • + 12
 Whammy!
  • + 11
 The Man
  • + 11
 That was some of the sickest riding I've ever seen.
  • + 10
 Style & Speed on 26" wheels!!!

 BEST EDIT OF 2015 (so far) So fast and so smooth. Riding like that would be a dream come true. My mouth was literally hanging open when he did the big berm transfer whip and then the flat 3. WTF.
  • + 2
 agree 100%
  • + 2
 R-dog has just turned me into a child for a minute- I've just seen riding through virgin eyes- I thought I had seen it all but this is plain bonkers. I cannot recall seeing a bike ever being ridden any better, ever. And I watched it for free. Winner.
  • + 5
 Hell yea! Current Swell and ridiculously smooth riding from R-Dog, doesn't get much better then that!
  • + 6
 0:50 that landing was badass!

 This is one of the most awesome edits i have seen here on PB, and specially from R-Dog, after watching him win the Whip-Off, i was really waiting for some other sick video from him, but THIS is by far my favorite video this year
