 this is so dope because it's mountain biking...not some crap that a dude on a BMX bike could do with twice the style, but huge burly hits. DH bikes on big jumps anyday over DJ bikes on bmx hits....nice.
  • + 172
 I like DH bikes on big jumps, DJ bikes on smaller jumps and I like BMX. Is that acceptable? I don't ride Enduro though, I promise.
  • + 34
 You don't enduro!? KILL IT! BURN IT WITH FIRE!
  • + 11
 soooooo much aiiiirrr!!!! god damnnn
  • + 22
 Nothing wrong with BMX.
  • + 1
 we see lots DJ on smaller jumps and you liking BMX we don't see very much of this....
  • + 75
 This is the internet. You're only allowed to like one thing. Not both.

 Bmx is legendary but mountain biking can't try and copy it. Mtb in general has to break apart from bmx or it wont go anywhere. Just watch Redbull dreamline... Bigger than lots of mtb contests
  • + 5
 For sure, this is moto territory. Sick, sick vid.
  • + 6
 yes Bicycle Motocross is insane so are DJ mountain bikes and they both get lots and lots of coverage, guys riding big bikes on big hits like this is not that common would be nice to see more of it if thats ok w BMX riders haha
  • + 4
 Every bike-sport has got it's charm. But this is so dope!
  • - 1
 what about those guys that hit the HUGE ass bmx dirt jumps? those things where almost just as big as this, and built better. This is DOPE though! I can only imagine pulling a FAT superman over the monster kicker, sooooo much time!
  • + 3
 FDH (like FMX) they should make contests in this!
  • + 8
 @ raymond-george, look bmx is legendary but so is mtb. In bmx guys aren't doing 60 footers through knar. Bmx can get some pretty big jumps but it is smooth as hell. these guys just went out on some big 35 pound bikes un like the 5 pound bmx, and did some jumps that would break a bmx frame in half. Pretty sure mtb is just as if not more legendary

 This is absolutely mental!
So much air time..
Those gaps are good for Ken Block's Monster tuned Ford Fiesta Big Grin

 this jump needs to be a the next Rampage
  • + 11
 I don't think anyone got what i was saying... but The Fest series is the right direction for mountain bikes is what I meant
  • + 0
 i don't see how that is what you meant but i mean if it is okay
  • + 0
 Did anybody notice the Jordie Lunn was on a specialized and that Vanderhams bike looked a different than the normal Rocky Mountain Flatline
  • + 1
 my buddy said that Rocky is coming out with a new Flatline this summer, so maybe Vanderham is on a proto? this was absolute insanity, so sick!!
  • + 1
 @ray, dude this is the internet, logic does not apply.
  • + 1
 Mountain biking is mountain biking. Don't you all realize this fest resembles FMX just as much as crankworx resembles BMX.
  • + 1
 i got what you were saying raymond and you are absolutely correct. mtb cannot try and copy bmx with DJ bikes. mtb has to be its own thing. the fest series is a huge step in the right direction, moto tricks on big bikes on even bigger jumps. mentioning dreamline was a perfect reference. bmx riders go just as big or bigger than DJ riders. so whats the point of DJ copying 10 year old bmx tricks if the amplitude isnt greater?
  • + 2
 bmx for perfectly sculpted jumps, DJ bikes for slightly less well built jumps where you need the forgivingness and DH bikes for insane jumps. that overshoot though, if he were on a DJ or BMX he would have died. size doesn't matter, as people have already discussed with the fact that dreamline is huge, its how much forgiveness you want from your bike.
  • + 3
 Here's an idea, how about we all ride the bikes we enjoy riding on the jumps/trails we enjoy riding them on. I personally find a BMX too small and twitchy and a DH bike too heavy and overkill for what I ride. But a dirt jump bike/slopestyle rig is just about perfect. If anything my local DH trails are better suited to an enduro/all mountain bike. Ride what you are comfortable on and you will ride better and be happier because of it.
  • + 1
 amen to you the lou94. AMEN
  • + 1
 When it comes to BMX/DJ and huge style/gnarly hits. I'm ashamed that no one has credited or given any respect to Dane Searls yet...
  • + 116
 The bike industry needs more of this!!! Props to all the riders who came to make it happen!!
  • + 60
 Matt Hunter needs bigger jumps that for sure.
  • + 2
 Brings a tear to my eye...so awesome!
  • + 29
 Andreu Lacondeguy's extensions genuinely give me goosebumps
  • + 3
 Couldn't agree more. So stoked to see this level of riding. This is what mtb is for me.
  • + 7
 Matt Hunter "best overshoot" lol, the guy is always so pinned
  • + 1
 I got legit shivers. So gnarly.
  • + 75
 Lacondeguy literally hanging it out, so much style!!!
  • + 5
 Sweet, that's also the best trick from his 2013 Rampage run that was tossed out!
  • + 7
 His table whip one hand one foot thing at 4:31 was the most steeziest steez I have ever seen!!!
  • + 4
 Lacondeguy is legend. Amazing style and so fluid and his character off the slopes is one of a kind.
  • + 53
 Great job Aggy - hope this is back again next summer!
  • + 18
 Yup...this sport keeps gettin better!
  • + 10
 Aggy's Flying Circus!
  • + 4
 Next up: Makken's Høkkfest. The original Fest-event! Can't wait!

And to think, this year is just a taste on what's to come! Gobsmacked and flabbergasted I am!
  • + 47
 Bet you any money this video doesn't do it justice as to how big these jumps actually are....
  • + 9
 Anytime a jump in a video actually looks huge, in real life I am unable to even imagine attempting it.
  • + 25
 And when it looks like nothing on video, in real life I'm like " nope, not today"
  • + 3
 When jumps make people who stand next to them look small, you know they're huge.
  • + 7
 I've seen some of the jumps that have taken me a year to work up to on video and they're f*ckin embarrassing. Then I saw myself go off them on video and it was even more embarrassing! Don't really give a sh*t though cuz it feels like I'm flyin and that's all that matters!
  • + 2
 @adam102. Hahaha. Brilliant and so true. Watched so many vids of bike parks thinking..... yeah, easy, breeze that. Get there and sh@t myself! It's awesome tho, I love it!!!!! Amazing video. Well done to all of them and thank you.
  • + 46
 Finally a great edit and no techno-house-dubstep!
  • + 4
 I didn't realize how much I dislike techno in edits until I started reading the comments here.
That being said I dislike metal in edits too.....am I banned now?
  • + 26
 This event couldn't have been better suited to Andreu Lacondeguy. Huge jumps, massive air time - he's right in his element and man did he kill it! Salute
  • + 21
 Lacondeguy is an absolute animal.
  • + 17
 What is vanderham riding?
  • + 73
 a bike
  • + 12
 I would say it's rocky's new protype flatline
  • + 1
 the shock mount is the same as the session with the full floater but the rear looks similar to an aurum making it slightly rearward travel, If rocky ever releases this bike it will be sick form the looks of it!
  • - 1
 that bike should be out sometime towards the end of summer or beginning of fall will be available for 2015 im pretty sure
  • + 1
 Nice, the current Flatline has been around forever
  • + 2
 i was at the event check out my photo of vanderham and you can take a closer look at his bike
  • + 18
 holy big balls of steel
  • + 8
 Woah! Completely forgot i was watching mtb for a second, absolutely huuuge. Those guys have so much style and pace. Its such a breathe of fresh air to see massive laid out stylish tricks rather than mega combos and elaborate complex tricks.
  • + 0
 Yeah, no triple tailwhip with DH fork!
  • + 2
 Yep I also for a moment I forgot it was DH bikes , reminded me so much of MX with all the air time and style.
  • + 9
 hopefully we'll see a lot more where this came from.



Pretty please?
  • + 8
 Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the steeziest of them all!
  • + 4
 If they put together a longer edit of just helmet/bike cam footage of this event, I'd be glued to it. I'll never be able to ride anything anywhere near this big (I like my bones and they like me) so it'd be great to at least experience some of what these dudes have achieved!
  • + 5
 So worth the wait, this shit is insane. So much style and air time. Pushing the sport in the right direction here. Aggy and Lacondaguy killing it with the big bike 360s
  • + 7
 Holy air time batman!
  • + 5
 I don't care what anyone says, Andreu Lacondeguy is God... One hand-seatgrab-superman! That dude is a machine!
  • + 0
 hating on andreu is sooo 2012. dude's fuckin rad
  • + 1
 So damn amazing. Will attend next year, not enough notice to make a trip of it this time, but now I have something to look forward to for next spring. Hopefully this carries enough weight to make an annual thing of it going forward.
  • + 5
 Best whip overall: Tyler McCaul - sooo moto!
  • + 3
 so MTB
  • + 6
 About. Time.
  • + 1
 Love the line that was filmed with the sun directly behind the rider so you could see his shadow on the land while he was still airborne! Sickest looking train at the end too. Super cool stuff!
  • + 3
 This will be playing on loop in my office all day. I plan on getting nothing done.
  • + 1
 I like that there is minimal slow-mo; so many edits these days are ruined by it. What could have been an awesome 2min edit gets dragged out to 5mins; this on the other hand is excellent!
  • + 1
 Am i the only one who thinks that the Athertons should get involved in the fest series and bring it to their line at the quarry? Would love to see those guys shredding the place up!
  • + 1
 Damn, son. It's nice to see this sport and its riders progressing so fast, especially Andreu Lacondeguy - that guy has been around for a long time and he's still paving the way.
  • + 3
 Those jumps were so floaty. Gotta love Aggys style all around, beer with a monster coozie! Well earned I'd say.

  • + 3
 "add to favorites" okay Wink
  • + 1
 I take it Vanderham was riding a proto RMB frame? I figured something new is coming down the pipeline because having just one Flatline model this year is bogus.
  • + 1
 none of these videos or pictures do justice on to how big these jumps actually are. Saw them in person. Just to crazy too look at
  • + 3
 Big jumps and awesome music, what more could I want
