Video: Jaws Heads to the Black Hills in France

Nov 17, 2014
by Pinkbike Staff  

We followed Bartek "Jaws" Krzyszton to the Black Hills in France, one of the best freeride spots in Europe. Miles away from any form of civilization, the men spent days sleeping in tents so they could fully explore this mountain bike haven. Their days were spent filming and watching Jaws dig and ride his bike in a completely pure freeride environment unlike any other. He was not afraid to go big, fast, nor steep, and they have the footage to prove it.

 What we thinking, Jaws at next rampage?

 I was a bit surprised he wasn't on the list this year. Godziek was just killing it and it was awesome to see him at the event this year, and while he is a bit more on the slopestyle, Jaws is the definition of freeride. Polish riders and polish bike makers deserve huge respect for what they are doing last years.

 Jaws is good, no doubt...Jaws is better than me, obviously...Jaws at Rampage? Not yet......and that's coming from a Polack.

 The riding there seems way different but he's got balls and skill so he could adapt. It'd be tight to see him there. Maybe he should film an edit at the original site Wink

 Well, Jaws at least has got that Lacondeguy post-coital roar down pat! I vote for him to receive a Rampage invite BTW.

 I don't think he would be a winner but i think it would be sick to see him there

 There's no doubt Jaws could ride the gnarliest lines at Rampage. He might not be able to trick everything the FMB guys do, but Rampage judges reward technically difficult lines.

 ^ ummm that's quite the statement, haha. I've seen him ride gnarly stuff including this, but the craziest lines at Rampage are another level of insane.

 That was crazy. Here is a place with many grey hills and is so amazing to ride, not so nice when you crash, quite scratchy. This should be a European Rampage with no wood features!

 Future rampage site or fest series stop!

 The Black hills aren't a place for rampage, not even a place to dig like he did... however it's such a cool edit!

 Great video, but I couldn't get over how compressed the audio is! I don't know if this is an EpicTV issue or what, but it's crazy how bad the audio is.

 Jaws, even though he has the blackest eyes, the devil eyes, and was killed with compressed air, but then came back looking for REVENGE, in 3D!! He is still a great bike rider! And to think none of this would have been possible if he would have worked properly for Steven Speilberg! Who then went on to direct STar Wars, Star Trek - The Wraith of Lawn and Looper and Brokeback Mountain. All Hail Jaws!
