Must Watch: Day & Night With Sam Pilgrim

Aug 8, 2018
by Pinkbike Originals  


We had the idea for a unique video that contrasted day and night, so we headed to Kamloops BC with Sam Pilgrim and videographer Scott Secco to make it happen. Sam is one of our favourite riders to watch, and it's awesome to see him bring some of his slope tricks to the enduro bike. We battled some crazy weather and some very late nights, but the end result was worth it.


Film by Scott Secco
Presented by Swatch

 That was pretty sick, love the way he hit the same spot / line / height for each section of day and night - to call it precision would be an understatement

 Are those energy drinks? We don't have those in the states that I know of.

 @LoganKM1982: yeah it's a monster energy drink

 Just had one because of that advertising, and feel energetic enough to bicycle now. I guess I'll be that guy who says, "just copy Sam Pilgrim!".
  • + 1
 @Kramz: He is actually a sponsor's dream. He actually spends quite a lot of time in his videos plugging sponsor products but it never feels forced or like he is having words put in his mouth.

 Well that was damn cool. I’d leave it to you Scott to shoot all the spots that don’t already have pre-existing lights. Gotta make it harder haha.

 @Lone-Wolf-Productions Thanks Matt! I needed lights I could control and shape haha.

 @scottsecco: haha yeah I figured

 love this guy... he's one of the best pro-rider and youtuber out there , always stoked to watch him ride !

 There's a reason he doesn't compete regularly anymore...
  • + 5
 @Wizard79: I think he has competed in a lot of competitions this year so far and will continue to do so next weekend in spain. At swatch rocket air he was second behind Matt Jones but got a better result than Rogatkin. Id call it regularly.

 I love his bike assembly videos/tips.

The brick is the best part!

 Snapped his bar clean off in the latest one lol

 @iqbal-achieve: That was epic hahaha

Out of all the youtubers...he's just fun and enjoyable to watch. I love the junkyard bike with the sick forks..haha
  • + 4
 @bartb: yeah I love him. He has like an anti-pro attitude, super relatable and just fun to watch. At the same time he is an insane rider, he’s still putting together massive runs.
  • + 2
 @iqbal-achieve: I laughed at the bar snap too but it's clearly a set up- look how carefully he holds the bars when he's putting them on. You can see it's a deliberate miss with the last swing to break the bars. It did make me laugh tho- he is a funny dude to watch without trying too hard and being annoying like a lot of youtubers.

 @lornny instantly reminded me of your kali vid last year

 I think he chose music by the band 'Lorn' as a tribute.

 Why is this not set to 'Day n nite' by Kid Cudi?

 Awesome edit, some serious teamwork here to make it work I imagine! I cant believe there are actual detractors of Sam Pilgrim, the guy shreds, and seems super down to earth. He doesnt take himself super seriously, but is still a serious athlete. Meh what're the kids saying these days? H8ers gunna H8?

 I will say I have a love hate relationship with crack a monny oclock...its pretty funny and bearable for super obvious product placement...I appreciate that energy drink companies push extreme sports forwards...but only with cash...pro level athletes should not be presenting joe schmoe with this idea that monster or red bull is what gives them the ability to do what they do...the stuff is downright nasty, and idiots drink it without hydrating all the time...that said I support those idiots rights to do whatever they want to their bodies...
  • + 1
 @Davschall: Why on earth would a company endorse someone to say "Hey, don't actually use our product." The money comes with the caveat that it will increase sales. Without pushing the product to their fans what is the point of the sponsorship for the energy drink company?
  • + 1
 Sam’s already explained that the “crack a monie o’clock” is nothing to do with Monster or promoting it. It’s a private “joke” between him and his brother that he thought was funny so shared it! @Davschall:

 Wow @scottsecco was that every a banger! That was one cool concept perfectly executed......I think it's the best vid I've seen so far this year......kudos!

 Sick video guys. Except it should have been named "the dream". ????. Sam you need to swing by Fernie next time your in the area. Super fun lift access at the resort and beautiful djs right in town.

 Tom Cardy, and Sam Pilgrim videos are nuts. They do insane tricks, then the other one matches it. I had a friend we used to be competitive like that with, and it was so fun.
