Video: Mesa 2 - Freeride in Utah

Apr 10, 2021
by Daniel Sapp  

Utah is still the proving ground for freeride mountain bike riders across the globe. Pushing riders beyond their comfort zone with its unique landscape; making or breaking dreams. After the year of 2020, Tom Van Steenbergen and Ethan Nell decide to take on the harsh desert one more time.

 Mr. Huth - whatever you're getting paid for these videos you deserve more. Amazing edit as always.

Also, is it a coincidence that whenever a huge step-up is being built, mr. Macduff is always somewhere nearby?Smile

 I saw these jumps in real life, they don’t even look possible and I’ve hit some pretty big jumps. Great job guys!

 @Dr-YTMTB: Calling Colorado home aint too shabby either but theres just something about the contrast of desert and snow you get in Utah thats hard to beat

 @suspended-flesh:

Yeah, Colorado is beautiful as well. There’s nothing quite like the I-70 stretch through the mountains and through that tunnel coming into Denver from the west.

 That's so cool that they built trails so that both guys could be in the same shot, but not doing the same thing. Most edits with multiple people either have them following down the same trail, or just give them totally different segments.

 This (and Gee’s slate line) is the best vid I’ve seen in about 3 years.
Everything, the riding , the editing, the mesa, the music, amazing.

 Rampage is great, but give these guys some time, and the talent and artistry really comes through. Riders and cinematography.
