Freerider, Vincent Tupin, embarks on a race against himself as speed and imagination unite to bring us into the mind of the athlete.

Confidence enables us to overcome fears and the unknown, but how can we beat the rival inside of us? The mental aspect is the key to continuously improve your riding as long as the action becomes a habit.

A union is formed between confidence and mental strength, almost a living entity that can transform impossible obstacles, into simple turns.

Breathe, open your eyes, ride it.

 How to make one of the most stylish riders in the world look irrelevant in 2 minutes. Used all the tricks in the book to try and make him look fast, scary and wild when all he needs is a gully in the woods somewhere and someone who can pan a camera.

 He is (obviously) showing off the a new helmet for his sponsor. Whats the point if you dont even notice the helmet with vinny ripping down a gully? I love his videos too, but he has obligations towards his sponsors and is just fulfilling them.

 @endoplasmicreticulum: nice photos. They do the helmet showy off thing very well.

 All filler, no killer. I'm not sure I've ever seen an edit that made me instantly have such a strong dislike for a brand.

 yeah what helmet. I came for vinny. If they did a proper edit with him riding and an outro saying "here, look at his new helmet". that would be way better

 @Inclag: is that a trend for you? being done when you're only 30 seconds in?

 I was thinking similar; he really shows best with low-production dad cam and just riding, or POV, which is crazy considering how it appears to dumb-down the terrain.

 This looks like a Pinkbike Academy episode made video, not terrible but also not great

 I like vinny T, but that shaky cam has to go....

 As someone who is studying professional content creation, this has to be one of the worst "big" videos I've seen, the crew didn't know the rider it seems and they just had an idea that they wanted to apply to anybody, Vinny is one hell of a stylish and good rider, but the video makes him look like a basic speedrunner.

 Agreed, they could have substituted literally anyone for Vinny in this and it would have been the same. Given that 90% of the video was still-shots of him in the helmet, they should have just gotten George Clooney or someone who is paid to be nice to look at.

 Confusing video, reminds the style of Joel Ducrot's edits but in an even more weird way. Photographies are cool, I would have loved to see more freeride lines in these red hills or at least just more riding.

 This is Vinny-T gold m.pinkbike.com/video/379514

 It’s either a short crap film or a long crap advert! A fidvert, fadvert, filert, something like that. Either way I’ll not be watching it again. And the product didn’t even inform me of why I should buy it over and above the competition. A waste of time. And now I’ve wasted more time writing this very negative comment????

 Ok. So the main takeaway from that video appears to be that Vinny T can walk up a hill with a bike on his back at about the same speed as the rest of us.

 Not clear what this Video want me to show or intended to show...in one minutes they apply more cuts than I had in my whole bike career.

 So... when I thought the video was finally about to start after a long intro. It ended. Ich bin dissapoint

 When you sponsor Vinny T but forget who he is...

 I’ve been following pinkbike for years and that was hands down the worst mtb edit i’ve ever seen. Seems like the whole comment section agrees. Hey camera guy- figure it out.

 That hand held shaky cam is horrendous. Please make it stop.

 ....and thats how it looks if you don't wear your lid kids!

 I actually like the music and vibe, but get rid of all of the cuts and just put in Vinny's normal insane riding in his backyard.
  • 4 0
 Agreed. I was digging the cinematography and music. But I was waiting for the video to drop, kind of like an EDC song. It was building up and building up but then it never dropped into some sick riding and upbeat music.

 2 minute video, 15 combined seconds of riding that was discernable. Most of the riding was some blurry shaky cam BS. Noticing this trend more and more. Just show me someone railing a trail with a clean, steady camera angle. I could have done better than this with my phone and a tripod.

 You wouldn't even need a tripod to make it better than this haha!

 The Blair Witch Project with a Mountain Bike.

 lol that was such a shi#t film as well!!

 Yeah I think I prefer the raw onboard videos of him ripping through a forest, slow-mo shots of his face are not what I'm looking for.

 Anyone else have to squint while watching this? Who made the call on this cropping? Alec Baldwin?
