David Mcmillan is renowned for riding bike parks harder than anyone. So when we met up in Queenstown New Zealand, we couldn't resist getting him in front of the lens.

 Absolute shredder of a video. But where is the colour and why do we hear him breathing the whole way down?
  • + 5
 Breathing is important. Yoga. In-out-in-out... hmmm. They could ask him to not breathe next time but it would never make for a video this long.

 WAAAAAAAPOW!

Good riding, although that deke through the two stationary riders seemed pretty unnecessary and wouldn’t be appreciated by most.

 I think that because the guy on the right started moving forward, Dave chose to go behind and Dave expected the gap to open. And then the guy stopped moving, causing an unexpected squeeze.

 Then don't stand like a muppet blocking the entrance to a trail.

 Yea right, gtfo of the way of trail entrances.

 @m33pm33p: it amazes me how groups of friends congregate in front of trail entrances and trail crossings. Can you imagine if they pulled that shit with cars at freeway entrances and intersections?

 @scottym85: "don't stand like a muppet blocking the entrance" This so needs to be on a sign at the entrance to A-Line.

 It's crazy to me that a guy with this much skill can't crack the top 25 of an EWS race. Seems very fast on the jump lines but maybe the fitness and technical riding doesn't suit his style?

 Being able to smoke flow trails in a bike park is a different skill than being able to consistently ride mega-technical trails at lightspeed after only 1 practice run. He definitely has the bike handling ability to do very well in the EWS, but the two things are different enough that you can be exceptional at one without being exceptional at the other I think.

 "rips the bike park a new one" damn that's a gnarly tag line for a video... that'll get a click from me.

 I feel bad for the trail crew in Qtown, having guys like this and all the resident and visiting pros just schlappin berms all day long. Mind you, probably only have to touch up the last 3rd of every berm!

 Nice riding! Hate the black and white. It should have changed to colour after he hit the first trail. I watched the first minute and then skipped forward because I hated the view Frown

 Kinda dug the sound, it sounds like real life mountain bike riding

 Kinda reminded my brain of the sound your character would make when you got shot playing Goldeneye 007 on Nintendo 64. Bikes and games, those were the days.

 Whatever happened to vids with terrible music. Now it's all raw,raw,raw. Is this an attempt to reduce the number of music moan comments ?!?!
