 Listen, I know we all said that yesterday's moto video should have been 5 minutes shorter, but now you've taken that advice too far

Thank goodness that DYLAN STARK has come to save us from all the talentless instagram HACKS dominating the MTB world these days

I love all disciplines of MTB, DJ, and BMX, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the guys who can accomplish technical climbing at this caliber, still rip the descents, and throw in some stylish tricks for good measure. That's being well-rounded and is what differentiates MTB from BMX.

 I hear you! and very much appreciate your stoke. I strive [wink wink] to ride the way I think a mountain bike should be ridden. I'm all about riding the bike to its full potential where it was designed to be ridden. CHEERS!

 As far as I know, he hails from BMX land, which is a head start for bike control.

 This is true mountain biking. Tech climbing, chunder descents, jumps, finding flow where it looks like none could exist. @Bikerbrayd putting out my favorite videos on the net right now.

 This is amazing. Braydon's edits are so creative and wall-to-wall with technical skills and bangers. One of my favorites to watch right now. I'd love to see a game of BIKE between you and Kendall-Weed. The creativity would be intense.

 Dude.... a game of BIKE would be rad and so fun! Also, thanks for the stoke!

 Guy is a freak on the climbs and so fun to watch. Whips that Canyon around like it's nothing! Can't wait to see more from him

 I could strive to ride that trail that way, but I'd probably fall into a canyon.

 Just to put that tech climb into perspective, it is the "waterfall" section on the 'Barrel' trail. It is typically ridden DH only. It is steep and much gnarlier than it looks in this video. I have ridden down it many times. It the gnarliest part the 'True Grit Epic' XC race. Probably 95% of the XC racers walk down it. I passed like 10 people there last year in the race that were walking down it. I cannot believe it is possible for someone to ride UP it. Amazing...

 Hah. My son just said, "Sick to see him ride UP the waterfall faster than most people ride down it."

 No footer with clipless pedals, nice.

 Not just a no-footer, but a crankflip too. First time I've seen that with clips.

 @hardtailparty: Eddie Masters threw one on the Pivot Firebird when that dropped. Such a sick move for those that can pull it off

 Love this. This kind of thing is so underrated in MTB. Just being able to see potential for something cool/challenging with the terrain you have, and have to step up creativity and skill to get what you want out of it. Can be a climb, a trick, a feature. This is what mountain biking is for me. Keep it coming.

 Cheers brother. For me, it's what MTB is about. I hope to continue to shed light on being creative and having the best time on the trail. Ride on! Thank you!

 He puts out great vids. Love how he spends as much attention to the ups as the downs. Keep 'em coming.

 It's half the equation right? Gotta respect the climb before the descent. Thanks for the stoke!

 Zen, while only 6 miles and 1000 feet of climbing, is a real butt kicker for me! I was there last weekend and had a goal of doing 3 laps. I only got 2 laps in and was soooo wiped out. Sick trail.
  • 3 0
 That crazy you do multiple laps. These trails are local to me, and I’ve never once considered doing Zen more than once in a day! I’m pressed with your stamina and skill set to do that.
  • 2 0
 @spizike9: I've been working hard on fitness and bike handling for the last year. I wouldn't have even thought of doing Zen more than once before that. 3+ laps is definitely a 2020 goal. Such a physical trail! Cheers!

 The Suicide no hander off the drop is insane. That thing is techy, in that you have a small landing and have to pull off a rolling rock to make the gap. Braydon is one of my favorite riders out there, and rides exactly how I aspire to!
  • 2 0
 My thoughts exactly!
  • 3 0
 It was definitely done with many regular drops before the hands came off. NOT a place that crash since immediately following the landing there's a giant rock garden. haha Thanks for the stoke tho man! Good times ahead!

 For Braydon it's all about the bike, because he's probable broken a few. For me it was all about the riding. The sweet lines, the amazing skill, could've been any bike under his feet.
  • 1 0
 hahah I've actually only broken one Canyon and it was on a crash where I smoked the frame on a giant rock. Very impressed with how my bikes have held up and the abuse I have put them through.

 @Bikerbrayd we need a BTS video of what goes into making one of your edits. Super cool that it's you and your wife out there scheming and drawing up the shots together.

 Thank you! Yeah that just wasn't in the plans this time but we plan on making a BTS cut for the next project. I think it might be interesting and surprising to some.

 Braydon, any tips for taking the straight line down the waterfall. I've looked at that line before, but at my skill level, it looked like an endo for sure. You made it seem so smooth.
  • 1 0
 That was pretty much fully pinned and I had to do that in order to clear the gap at the bottom. I skipped the tops of the last few rocks and more or less went through like a moto on whoops. Definitely right tho on the potential endo.... could happen very easily. Be careful!

 I appreciate the choice of music in this video and The Whole Shebang. Seems to fit the theme of respective edit, and different from typical shredits which is refreshing. Very precise and zen-like, yet steezy riding. Well done, sir.

 Rock roll and drop at :37 looks very similar as does the "waterfall" around :45 and the various gap jumps.

 It pays to read (I missed it at first, too). From the article:
