 Just when I feel real good about my riding, thinking I’ve gained some speed and a bit of style I watch a vid such as this one and realise I am complete and utter squid.

 Full face just makes everything looks so much more badass, make quite a difference to edits I think. I get the point of half shells, if you have a lot of climbing, but they just look pretty lame at the end of the day.

 I’ll say it again. Riding bikes is extending your childhood by indulging in unadulterated fun.
Cuties, wheelies, jumps...skids(!)= fun. If you do it for excercise, shame on you...go jogging!
Trailbuilding, which I am sure R-Dog does, balances it all out

 newbie question - doesn't skidding on the berm like that mess it up for other riders (long term)?

 Yes, but we live in a world of selfish cunts these days.

 Yea, its severely over used in videos, and looks dated and cheesy if you ask me. I mean, its not like RDog needs to do this, his riding is amazing. Do it once, yea but over use ruins the video.

 He’s not skidding

 Considering it's a sculpted berm that he and his film crew packed some more and smoothed prior to filming, no. No negative impact.
  • 10 1
 He isn’t touching his brakes while hitting those berms. When you properly weight the front tire and snap a turn, your rear wheel will drift, as you see in this video.

 I'd say that since these are my home trails. It's all loose and dusty right now. All of it. Perfect for slapping ze berms. They do their part in trying to repair the trail after. This is a trek video. They aren't going to cunt out just to cunt out..

 @bizutch: exactly.....this is a trail he most likely built with his crew......so he can rip it as hard a he wants to!

 @Richardgoose R Dog spends as much time manicuring berms as he does destroying them.
