 There are much better edits out there. Much much better. This is ok but if you think this is amazing, then you have some rather low standards.

 Jesus, the guy only said that there might be some better videos out there as opposed to "omfg best brodit ever dudez!!!" - now which statement is more preposterous?

Different strokes for different folks, but i much preferred the POV edit of Cruzfest, but that also had a lot to do with the music.

Edit: alright, now that i have scrolled further down and seen his personal vedetta it seems like this video must have insulted his mother and stolen his girlfriend.

 What a way to end the week, Thanks to Kyle Jameson on behalf of TLD for his part in this cool event...the sport needs more of this, being with your buddies on bikes, pushing the limits, being a bit rowdy!
  • + 81
 How to get stoked:

step 1: Watch this video

step 2: There is no step 2, you should already be more stoked than ever before

Side effects can consist of:
- excessive yelling and run around
- trying to ride like Andreu
- extreme blowing of the mind

 Australia wanted to kill two dogs belonging to Johnny Depp. Shame on Australia, I lost all respect for that nation.
  • + 20
 Pretty sure you might have Asperger's syndrome dude. And to anyone who has a relative with Asperger's, I apologize I just compared them to someone as obtuse as this chump ^
  • + 5
 Who cares? They were just dogs, and not even the good kind. Declare your pets on the customs form f*ck face, follow the rules like everyone else with your silly little doggies.
  • + 4
 @jaame-with you there-better still kill the pretentious prat of an owner who feels he is above the law. Customs laws and animals exist for a good reason......Customs laws and drugs not so good reasons....nevertheless any reason to kill Johnny Depp is a good one-hasn't done a decent movie since "Whose eating Glibert Grape". Better still kill the moronic politician because he is bigger prat than Jonny Depp.
  • + 2
 I thought Pirates of the Caribbean was pretty decent.
  • + 39
 I have Aspergers Syndrome (albeit a milder version) and:

A) The video was sick.
B) Andreu is king.
C) Nobody gives a shit about the dogs, he should of declared them.
D) Pirates of the Caribbean is brilliant.

 Australians are the most racist people I've ever encountered. Definitely not a respected people these Australians. But this is to be expected from a nation that started out as a penal colony.
  • + 5
 Unbelievably, your ignorance continues to plummet to new depths. Wouldn't generalizing all Australians to be racist be, oh I don't know, racist? The hypocrisy is too much for me to handle its almost comical. Now kindly shut the f*ck up and learn how to ride a bike.
  • + 4
 As a generalisation I would have to say the Aussies are not the most or least racist of people. Certainly there are more racist people in the world, just as there are people who do not refer to Asians as "monkeys", Indians as "Curries" and the British as "f*cking Pommie c*nts." However one would have to question whether or not using such terminology constitutes racism. As a frequent recipient of the latter slang term, I would argue no, it does not.

Having said that, just declare your dogs on the customs form like the poor people do, and be prepared to face the consequences if you get caught flouting the law.
  • + 2
 I've never seen any evidence to say that Aussies are racists. They have a strict view on immigrants and are keen to uphold their own values and way of life. I don't see that as racism and have to say I agree with them. If somebody chooses to move to Australia they should adopt an Austrialian way of life not the other way around. That's all I'm saying though because a biking forum isn't really the place to start a major debate on the topic.
  • + 4
 & the Aussie surfers refer to USA surfers as "Seppo's"... Short for septic tank. lol
  • + 9
 I give a fuck about the dogs, it's not their fault their owner is the captain of the douche-canoe. The dogs, nor the Australian authorities are to blame, just some arse of an actor who thinks the rules don't apply. Way to go off topic! This edit is fucking rad. If you disagree, go choke on a bag of dicks for being categorically lame.

 I can't have a rednose pit here in OZ but he can bring those two show bred rats into the country on a private jet? f*ck customs for missing them in the first place. We are free of several canine and mammalian diseases that exist in the States and we need to keep it that way. P.S. Show me any edit better than this Rocky boy.
  • + 1
 Look at Rocky boys profile on here. He has absolutely 0 as in ZERO positive opinions about anything. Its like he hates his own sport.

 Well that escalated quickly!

 Wouldn't you rather drink a pint of vodka than watch this??

 You could probably use that pint of vodka anyways... Do us a favor and make sure it's absinthe.
  • + 4
 @Rocky-Urban .. i see your comments to this video,did you have a bad sleep or what? why do you hate this video so much? is it because they are better than you? that is ok,they are better than all of us Wink

 I checked my bank account, no money has been withdrawn yet. I didn't give my credit card information either... how is this kind of entertainment free? I am so glad it is though. Freakin' amazing! I can't wait for Aggy's Reunion edit. Keep up the amazing work!

 I hear ya - to me, Rampage doesn't hold a candle to this edit!
  • + 20
 I don't know, Rampage is Rampage. Being there a couple years ago gave me a while new appreciation for an event that already off the charts.
  • + 16
 I dont get why people keep using fest to put down fmb. Its two different disciplines completely. Also, its like you are complaining about the wide variety of entertainment you get for free, just be happy watching fest series and stop complaining about fmb.
  • + 9
 Yeah, people need to stop putting down fmb. It's a different discipline, and the fest and fmb guys all get along and a lot of the guys switch between fest and fmb events anyway...
  • + 7
 FEST is amazing. Going big, trick or not, looks sick. FMB, FEST, WC, and even some ENDURO, top riders pushing the limit of skill and gear, the stories, all amazing to watch. All they need to do now is take Rampage out of the FMB lineup and take it all over the world just like FEST. Bring Freeride back to the top, it's what every one wants.

 I have a supreme MTB boner right now

 Last hit was so damn clean that Andreu was fist pumping while still riding down the fuggin tranny. This series is GOLD!

 that tsunami backflip tho... awesome.

 i haven't watched it yet because im not ready for so much stoke

 Clay, my hat's off. The music selection is primo. Your timing of tricks to song lyrics couldn't be more on point. The start and end with Andreu….the slow-mo of his sickest tricks. It's like you're reading our minds on what we want to see and hear. So stoked on this. Thanks a million for this edit and this coverage.

 NO! No. Just no. K?

If metal doesn't belong here, then IDK WTF does but it ain't no EEEEEEEE WEEEEEEEZY. :s

Stuck Mojo would fit right into this GNAAAAAAAAARLY MUTHAFVCKA!

 That was D.O. To the mother fuckin C. Don't compare him to garbage ass weezy

 Heavy Hip hop, Skate Punk, Thrash metal, drum n bass .... There are other genres out there that can accompany an edit of this burliness believe it or not. As much as I love them we don't need to listen to Pantera and Lamb of God on every single bike related video.
  • + 1
 2004 is over
  • + 5
 Clay Porter you the man! Best highlights ever!

I know its hard to place those rails and cranes high up at Rampage sights but Crankworx could learned some valuable lesson here... on second thought these modern drones might help produced even better cinematographic effects, so RedBull has no excuses for Rampage this year, hold the rhythm Smile ))

As for the Cruz Fest, guys you need rebranding here "Cruz Fest - shows the best!"

 That's why it was so fucking sick. Great editing, great song esp. with new NWA movie coming out soon but mostly just spectacular riding on a flawlessly built course.
  • + 8
 My beer could ride that, hold me..
  • + 7
 Probably the sickest thing i've ever watched.
  • + 3
 Show me a sicker edit than that and I will slam my nuts in a car door. Seriously, I don't know about anyone else but if the Fest series edits keep coming through that solid I'm not even mad they're closed to general public. We're not worthy, we're not worthy!!
  • + 7
 Wtf did I just watch...wow..
  • + 3
 New prop me all you want but I enjoyed the vital raw sessions of the event more. There's hardly any action of the massive step down... Anyway. The riding is insane and I can just dream about hitting jumps that size...

 f*cking awesomeeeee!!Andreu feels like a fish in waterSmile

 So damn good, music riding the lot. This really is some of the most progressive mtb going on anywhere
  • + 2
 Dang. Sweet baby jesus. Holy shitake mushrooms batman. That is some shite right there. No two ways about it. Makes me wanna go bigger....tomorrow I am heading out and looking to step it up. I mean really, when you get down to the meat of it, F. I absolutely love this stuff. Stoked! Hey man, can you tell that I am STOKED!
  • + 2
 Andreu is doing stuff quite frankly I never thought I'd see on a bike. He's not only beasting off these huge hits but he's throwing crazy crazy style in to it. It reminds me of the early days of Shaun White. Just so far ahead of every one else with air, style, and complexity. It's mind blowing. But then again... look at this generation of snowboarders... took it too a new level. Kids grow up seeing people do amazing things and they learn how to do it... then they say... what can I do. Start that younger and younger and go farther and farther. Makes me go... dude... wtf can possibly be next.
  • + 2
 Well if there was anyway in which they could make FEST any more incredible.... yep... bring in Clay Porter to film it. Holy sh*t that was about as good as it gets. Awesome cablecam work, whoever was flying that knew what they were doing. I need to see it again.
  • + 2
 Finally! A bad ass edit that matches the bad ass cinematography and the BAD ASS riding!! Finally! An edit that writes the book on when to use slow mo! Finally! An edit that lights the fire under my ass! What a fucking masterpiece!! TWO THUMBS UP!!
