bigquotes"So here is my latest edit straight from the sunny weather of California. This was filmed on my annual trip to California but this time I had a pretty big crash that you will see in the edit. The crash put me out of riding for longer than expected but I'm still pretty happy with video! So let me know what you think!" - Sam Pilgrim

 I love it when the pros show up to my local spot. I just wish it were on a day when I'm there so we can shred together.

 Anyone else think Sam's like mtb's version of Harry Main haha?

 Oh god I fucking love that show, Dave's the man.

 no because as with so so many bmxers, sam has style and flow and they just have robotic style and are trick monkeys
  • + 2
 Well from my opinion, Sam rides park, rides for Monster, rides a gyro, has a mtb setup similar to what Harry Main's bike is set up like, and Sam also does quite a lot of Harry's style of tricks, like 3 tables and flairs. Harry does actually have style and flow. He just prefers to push himself to up his game. Really that isn't much different than a downhill rider who hits up the gym a lot to train to improve his riding...This gyro/no style/no flow argument is so outdated and boring now.

 sam rides everything, he shreds parks and trails as well as street and slopestyle and hucked himself at comps like rampage too. harry is just a trick monkey. Gyros are cool, i would run one if i had the money to keep it running sweet. Dude, sam does every trick in the book, but does it with style, flow and it looks decent. Harry just does as many as he can as fast as he can and its boring. Harry looks awkward and bow legged when he rides, sam looks better.

 It's comparing apples to oranges. Generally bmx riders are smoother, but IMO everything still looks much better on bigger wheels. I think Sam in mtb is comparable to Harry in bmx tho, since they are both out for tricks and not so much for style (that doesnt mean they dont have any). Also they do quite similar tricks.
I dont know about previous years, but last year Samq did not ride Rampage because he already had enough points to win the FBM Tour.

 Sam rode rampage in 2012 I think, a contest completely out of his comfort zone as I'm pretty sure he rode chatel mountain style too, apologies if that is not correct!

 Sam Pilgrim, the toothless wonder. I hope he never gets it fixed.

 Question for film people: at 1:24-1:27, what kind of settings do you use? I'm always amazed at the level of detail in those kind of shots even when the sun is directly into the lens

 'To comment very high up'- dirt jumpers insist on not wearing full face helmets because they like the full visability and being able to look vertically down on some jumps that they may be riding, and theyre lighter
