Sep 14, 2020

bigquotesThe streets of Salt Lake City clear as society sheltered in during a pandemic. However, this reality becomes a dream for mountain biking athlete and Utah native, Mitch Ropelato. Revel in a day of raw talent that we call the Urban Assault.

 Yeah, Sure, that was dope, but how is he at DH? Oh, he wins DH races? Okay, I bet he sucks at Enduro though...
He wins those too?!? Dang, for sure he sucks at Dual-Slalom then right? Won that this year too, eh? I bet he sucks at BMX at least... No? I quit.

 Love seeing videos/content produced in SLC. The U of U is a great place to do some urban riding as long as you can get away from the bike cops.

 Bombing the U of U is bomb. When I went there they closed some fun lines with trees and boulders to stop riders. SLC is the shit.

 I live near there, you just gave me the encouragement I need to go venture over there on a dj once the trails are snowed in

 @mixmastamikal: could use the bus or trax? I would do that back in the day to bomb hills on roller blades.

 The only kicker is the majority of all those shots were in Ogden!!! haha

 Pretty sure some of that is at the Ogden Bike Park and Dee Events Center. Ogden is an awesome place to ride.

 Impressive. This guy's got old school multi event chops (WC DH, EWS, Crankworks Slalom) and puts out sweet free ride clips as well. Also runs his own team and sponsorship program? PROfessional.

 Watching Mitch makes me feel both amazed and very inferior. I live in SLC so it's fun to see him ride places I'm familiar with.

 Dry riding bmx trails is not urban, but it certainly is an assault on the meticulously stacked jumps

 Spanish Fork all the way to Ogden is SLC to a lot of people not from Utah. Of course, if he did get the video in downtown SLC, it would have been much better.
