Video: A Post-Work Rip in Austria

Mar 1, 2019
by SCOTT Sports  

Matthias Stonig, Austrian MTB Athlete, charges down his local trails after a long day at work. In the woods on natural, technical terrain is where he feels at home.

His stomping grounds in the beautiful mountains of southern Austria are a perfect place to practice and train for top class enduro racing.

 So drinking coffee from Aeropress and all sorts of other nonsense are not enough for hipsters now. The new hipster thing is to assemble a bike before every ride. In most cases in ASMR inducing video. Jesus Christ.

To non-Austrians. Don't be too jealous. Austria is frozen right now. The video "may not be" current.

 It´s needed when you spend your money for the overpriced Scott. You have to put it on stand first to get rid of the bloody twin-lock and put on a fork and shock which is actually working.

 @bok-CZ: loooool so true ))) I have one - genius 740 2015 )) Twinlock to garbage as well as stock frok and shock . Offsetbushings for both shock bushing to reduce head angle . proper fork proper shock , drivetrain and brakes . seems to be normal now ! )))))

 Take it easy, this is a staged video, not reality Big Grin
Hipsters are not a real threat to anyone, they're meant for laughing about them (source: am hipster, according to my friends)

 Hipsters are most likely to be recognized by the fact that they get upset about hipsters.

 @K1maxX: The best time to ride in Austria is when you can argue the millions of no biking signs were hidden by snow.

Whoever made all those signs must be rich now.

 @Riggbeck: what signs? You mean those round ones, white inside with the red edge? I thought that it's just a round version of flag of Austria Wink .

 @aydinak: just wondering why one would buy a bike that required the owner to rebuild it to make it right?

 @Riggbeck: haha, do you mean those signs? www.instagram.com/p/BixH-aaB4q6
but they are just strict in touristic areas about riding, just go 20km away in from saalbach any direction and nobody really cares.

 Frozen? Shit warm, no mud, all trails are dry...

 @K1maxX: Zillertal and around the Inn valley is where I've seen them in huge numbers, often an hours ride from any road. Friends also got hit with a 3 figure fine for riding a forest track in salzburger land. Saalbach I thought was ok, they have to control the dudes in their power ranger suits somehow.

 @dangerwank might as well have been shot on regular days.
You would be surprised by the number of people that leave work at 11am on fridays and at 4pm on regular days
