 Didn't know I needed a close-up of Warner's moustache until I got it.

 Lesotho is such a rad place to ride. Did an enduro there as well as a couple of trips and it is totally beyond most experiences on the bike and off. The people and the country stay with you in a way that no other country does. Once you have been there it constantly gnaws at your bones calling you to come back.

 Good series. Binged watched it this past weekend and would watch it over again. Like a travel show with a bit of mtn biking - they earn their turns by working odd jobs at the places they stay.

 Very emotional! Do the local kids get to ride their own tracks/trails? Is there any initiative to help local kids get into riding as well? I've been to RSA, but now this made me feel I need to check out Lesotho next time! Good job guys!

 You should totally do the Kingdom enduro race ,https://kingdomenduro.com .Lesotho couldn't more different than RSA.
The local kids shred the pump track faster than most seasoned riders.
There are also a few other grass root companies including Kingdom Enduro who are helping support the growth of cycling for fun and for commuting.

 It was really awesome to host Rob Warner,Matt Jones and the crew out in Lesotho on their epic search for exotic places to ride. It was also rad to meet the two legends and show them our trails and ride together and to hang with them was an honour . Big thanks for visiting the kingdom in the sky, and I hope some of you come see this amazing country for yourself.

 What a rad video! Being a volunteer for Kingdom Enduro 2019 and having signed up to race at Kingdom Enduro 2020 it was so amazing to see Rob Warner the legend come and ride these trails. I couldn't help but go into fan boy mode????Lesotho is a amazing country filled with so much mountain biking potential (believe me I grew up here).
For anyone coming to Southern Africa Lesotho has to be on that list????

 This country and the Kingdom Enduro kingdomenduro.com should be on every adventure riders bucket list.
There are so many more Rad trails to shred than what's seen on this video. The culture is raw, real and intoxicating.

You know how we all say " when I was a kid I played outside all day long....why don't the kids of today do the same?"

Well, The kids in Lesotho are always out and about, popping wheelies, skidding, kicking a ball around , dancing, running up and down trails, shredding the pump track....all with a huge smile.

 I have never done a 'binge watch' until the night before last when I thought I watch 'just one' episode of this. Now I know how the Netflix zombies feel at work all the time, great show, followed by a shite morning!

 I did the Kingdom enduro 2019, hopefully i can join for 2020... the landscapes and the variety of riding was amazing. The vibe of the people around event and locals was extraordinary.

 I've seen many many of pictures and videos about this place and it looks epic. Specialy the #kingdomenduro.com event, which must be RAD.

 Had to Google that , sorry over 35. Best I could find is you appear to think Matt Jones is seductively fat.

 Glad I didn't say it first. I cut it off about 75% of the way through when they were riding down a gravel bank with tour guides flanking them.

 @jonmierke: it was just the video in general, not the destination. I wasn't entertained. I'm sure others were.
