Video: Steep Freeride Lines with Matt MacDuff in 'Free to Be'

Oct 13, 2022
by Norco Bicycles  

When mountain biking stumbled across Freeride in the mid 90’s, it was a revolution fueled by emerging MTB technology, BC’s unique geography and janky, hand-shot VHS edits shot by the pioneers who were unknowingly documenting the lore of the sport.

In Free to Be, Matt MacDuff explores Freeride’s roots aboard his Shore by exploring the sport’s revolutionary freedom of defining your own line through an updated lens that reflects his fresh take on the landscape where it all began.

 My favorite thing about Matt MacDuff is Matt MacDuff, I mean style, humor, stoke and originality. Matts riding has been showcased in his latest edits (and they are good) but I think what makes Matt exceptional is his personality and outlook on riding, it would be so cool to see more of that in future edits!

 McDuff comes through again showing that you don't have to go to Utah for big lines. Always hits us with a great soundtrack too.

 MacDuff is the man! He also has an excellent podcast. If you haven't given it a listen yet, it's The Matt MacDuff Show.

 Loved this, Takes me back to the original Rampage style. This is what Rampage should be, picking the best natural lines down the mountain, not building for days to create a Fest series sculpted jump line.

 You honestly don't think there are more than days of building in this video? Single hit shots with post production and editing? Maybe watch it again...
