At the end of each year, the Fest Riders come together at Royal Hills: a 50-acre motocross paradise in the South of France where Nico Vink spent the last couple of years building and perfecting two big jump lines.
With huge shark fins, step-on-step-offs, hips, and jumps exceeding 60ft, these lines promised to be challenging for all the riders. Combined with all the other good stuff Royall Hills has to offer, everything was set for an awesome time.

 @dglass: I did the exact same thing, haha. Idk if the camera angle exaggerated it or not but it honestly looks like he whipped it more than sideways. Fking mental.

 @zirkman: yeah dude i was like oh shit he is landing backwards... then rewatched 3-4 times Smile

 @zirkman: Not that that isn't way above my skill level but that's a pretty standard whip in moto, they seem to turn physics off for a bit

 Pretty standard for MX, nothing special

 @brand-new: MX or Motocross please we are British/European!

 @brand-new @jimmythehat @aaa1: I understand that Andreu's whip is nothing special when you compare it to the way MX pros (or people who primarily ride moto) throw their bikes around... but for someone who spends most of their time riding MTB, that whip was pretty tweaked.

The shit pros do on their bikes makes my jaw hit the floor, especially in the x-games comp. Thanks for sharing the link.

 @zirkman: He also rides moto a lot but he does whip it as good as a fair number of professional moto racers which is damned impressive no matter what. If you have the chance, go to a nitro show. You'll see a few guys throwing what essentially are 180 pretzel 180s. Its insane what they've progressed to.

I hope it doesn't rain next year. That looks like an insane line.

 "moto skills dont help you ride a bike!" said many many PB'ers a few months ago. Take note; The bad boys with the wicked air time skills ride moto too.

 i just started riding moto and i already feel the difference. manhadling 250 pounds is way harder than dealing with a 35 pound bike.

 When a motorized ebike can compete with these I might be interested but until an e-bike which has a motor can rip like this they are just pathetic excuses. Absolute pieces of garbage. If they can't compete with real motorized bikes they are just a joke.
