Video: Battle of Power, Skill and Speed in Pros vs. Joes with MGM Alternative

Aug 10, 2021
by Miranda Miller  

MGM Alternative goes up against four highly skilled, highly qualified, highly ranked...engineers? We tested power, we challenged skill and we pushed our speed. Can four self proclaimed ‘Joes’ beat three ‘Pros’ in a series of mountain bike challenges? The outcome could be different than you think...

 Jesse, is Jesus Melamed your twin? He looks like a cool guy. Awesome to ride with your brother. Keep up the series, really fun to watch

 This is so funny, I was ridding Squamish last week and saw this guy who looked like a long hair version of jesse melamed, with essentially his old bike... I was over riding angry midget and full nelson. well based on this video, looks like I met Dillon and the resemblance is not joke hahahaha

 He's well used to being called Jesse and hopefully responds nicely on my behalf. Give him a shout next time!

 @JesseMelamed: Honestly man, I'm probably one of your biggest fans, I love when local hero's make it on the scene. I bought a new Altitude and did a full Shimano / Fox / RF treatment, it's a melamed inspired build! I will 100% introduce myself next time, we are all watching you represent Canada on the EWS circuit. I am super stoked for you and think you are just at the start of an incredible career! Your fans are watching! you got this!

 You can't go calling these guys just Regular Joes, these guys are FIVER PROS!!!

 Sure, but turns out the actual pros are pretty good.

 Good distinction, next time we'll filter out the Fiver Joes to find the real Joes.

 Maybe we're just Fiver Joes????

 @brettkel: Fiver Joes are Pros. I think that's what we've learned.

 LEGIT competition. Opening climb (Warden's) is a real enduro stage that has been raced on several occasions thanks to the cruel mind of the Fiver jedi mastermind Brian E!

 Hopefully we beat the time!

 @friendlyfoe I'm in, provided it's held on an elaborate network of interconnected skinny teeter totters.

 This is one the best video's I have seen in a long time.
Just good fun, all riders, some (way) better than others, but all enjoy riding the same!

 Entertaining video. The trails and features look super tricky and awkward. Even the pros struggled on them.

 That triple teeter got me.
