 There are no words to describe the sheer terror that would overcome me if I hit one of those jumps at speed.

 Even the jumps in the berms look big.

 Exact thought I had while watching. Different type of comfort zone.

 All Smiles for the Air Miles!

 Nothing but respect for all the riders that hit this. Definitely a different level of confidence and skill.

 Bet you I could walk it :p

 So good... How fast are they hitting those jumps?! They might as well stick a couple of wings on and get some lift going on...
  • + 24
 To hit the step down, you need to come at 63km/h.. to give you an idea Smile

 95 KPH which is like 110 MPH from what I learned in school. Pretty wild!

 @scott-townes: what were they teaching you?
  • + 5
 @scott-townes, you might need different teachers, other than the numbers being wrong in the first place, since when is the same value in KM/H more in M/H?

 Insanity. Riding faster than most of us with ever ride a mtb.......................into a set of jumps.

 @TheFEST is what we all hoped mountain biking would be someday. Huge, fun, and completely jaw-dropping. An event for all the right reasons.
  • + 7
 Was that some sort of prototype GoPro on Sorge? Or just a protective case in case he eats shit.

 Insane. I love Fest.

However I'm curious about Fests grip on media coverage of the event. I know they don't want photographers/video people coming in and poaching their work and releasing something they're not down with, but would letting these be open for outside media help Fest grow in popularity? I'd love to see those hills swarmed with people

 This event takes place in an open bikepark, so there is a lot of spectactors and photographers, and that's not a problem I think. Smile
(You can find some pictures on Facebook, "Arthur Chambre Photographie"/"VOS Photography" and probably more on the others website with #Loosefest Smile )

 @Voxran: oh that's cool. Maybe it was aggys reunion I remember reading an interview last year about how they wanted the media controlled. Their reasoning was valid, I'm just wondering if they're still doing that

 Makes the "big" jumps I hit look like speed bumps in the parking lot.
  • + 5
 So sick, can't even imagine ever being able to ride that stuff!

 Would love to be able to ride one of those bikes one day, sat here with my hardtail dreaming of being able to float

 "there is no f'ing way" - words uttered out of my mouth while watching this video....

 these jumps are just so massive, and don't forgot that gopro videos usually make things look smaller than they actually are.
  • + 2
 how long is the biggest jump of those?
  • + 13
 Step-down is 27 to 30 meters depending on where you land, so about 90-100feet
  • + 5
 @TheFEST: Hey, TheFEST. You are TheBEST.

 @TheFEST: Thanks for the info!
  • + 1
 @TheFEST: Makes any "big" jump look like a speed bump.
  • + 3
 @TheFEST: That variance of 3m in where you land is bigger in itself than 90% of the jumps I do....
