Vincent Tupin a.k.a Vinny-T, a fresh faced French man, roosts berms, sends jumps, hucks to flat, destroys bikes and shreds in the most unique and stylish way. This is dangerous, explosive riding at its most impressive and his all or nothing style is as invigorating to watch as actually riding itself is! Get inspired, get stoked and watch in awe as Vinny-T shows us all how it's done with amazing precision and heart stopping style. Vinny has ridden with some of the world's most skilled racers and free riders like Brendan Fairclough and Niko Vink in the most famous locations like Whistler and Chatel.

 WHAT A EFFIN SHOWREEL !! WOW just another kid making me feel very very old and really bad about my level of skill and balls hahahaahaa.

 Can anyone explain the idea of "drifting" the shit out of every berm? Wouldn't it be faster to rail it a bit higher on the vertical part?

Pretty bad form if you ask me, although I am aware of the fact that the number of PB views does seem to correllate with the amount of dirt flung into the sky..

 drifting is great fun - slower on some occasions yes but this video isn't about speed

what really gets me and grinds me to death (and it happens quite a bit in this video BUT thankfully less than in a lot of other vids) is this damn stupid fashion of small groundscrubs/trail whips/hacksaws / whatever you wish to call them, they have been around for a few years now but are just awful and ruin otherwise good video takes

a drift is cool, a millisecond rear end slide on a straight for example is PLAIN FREAKIN UGLY - STOOOOOOOOOOPPP IIIT !

 Hence the brackets around 'drifting'. A good two wheel drift can be the fastest way around a corner or may just happen in muddy conditions, which either way is just great fun. These are something different indeed and besides looking stupid, videos like this one set the trend to whip around berms, causing them to fall apart and be useless for what they are intended for - railing around at mach 10.

 Please give us more Vinny-T. That was absolutely bonkers. The crashes at the very beginning had me yelling at the blurry bits over the images cuz I wanted to see the carnage. So gnarly and so stylish. Way to go Vinny!!

 This f*cking kid..... How the f*ck does he crash so hard and still manage to perform at that level? That thumbs up after the high speed hand plant.... it almost had me picking gravel out of my palm.

 This dude must be hated by all bike park owners and trail builders - loved the way he used his back wheel to destroy every turn, berm or just the loose dust. still try to figure out how to get that grin out of my face. Thumbs up for him and for a bright future to come - looking forward to see more of him

just a thought!
