Ice and snow were the best conditions to have a lot of fun riding our bikes at home with Makken and Nico Vink.

 I'd slide and crash in each corner respectively would go down as slow as a snail.

It would probably be summer once I'm halfway down the course and then I could speed up a little :-)

 I thought the same thing but ever since I got Schwalbe ice spiker pro (studded tires) I've been having a lot of fun on snow and ice. Granted, I'm no where near the speeds they are going but I definitely ride as if there's no snow/ice on the ground.

 I think most would struggle to hit that trail at similar speed in perfect conditions. Absolute Beast!

 I wish pinkbike would take a closer look at those guys tires. They appear to be custom made with spikes as i havent seen any like that for sale online other than schwalbe ice spikers, which they are clearly not. I would love to see PB go through which tires might work best for doing this and maybe a how-to??? I mean are they literally just drilling screws int their tires? is there a company that makes mtb specific screws? Are they using sealant or tubes? I'm curious

 there are vids on youtube...maybe even by these guys, can't remember but I know I've seen a how to with some tricks as well. It was part of a biking vid or documentary or something of the like. Might have even been here on PB that I saw it.

 there are two different Scott Gamblers in the video (changing top tubes), one of them, the black one is probably Nico, the blue one is Vinny, Makken is
in the lead Smile

 Indeed sweet as and pretty sketchy riding! Those tires... Amazing traction! Just don't get to far back on that rear tire!!! Oooph that would suck.

 That is some infectious laughter!

 They make it look not so sketchy, but I would bet it's very sketchy. At the least the board bridge would have been. Maybe I am just a pussy though.

 What are the little antler looking mounts on makken's bars?

 Would say that for Hope lights. At least uses them when it's dark.
