 Especially 1:33, that was steezy
  • + 10
 Yeah man props on that zone, the riding, and the edit. Good stuff.
  • + 6
 This guy's got some ballz. I know that.
  • + 9
 Yeah that trail was absolutely incredible! Added tons to how hard he was shredding
  • + 15
 Seriously, that was a sick trail with some incredible style. I love it when the shots of reactionary "oh shit" looseness are included. It shoes how hard he's pinning it. The fall conditions also... gawd damn good lord jesus christ mohammad allah jafar
  • + 10
 1:33 HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 3
 I want a prototype now that i can ride like that.
  • + 3
 It was probably him among a group of other rowdy local riders! It's awfully hard to reach that level of riding without tailoring a trail to your needs.
  • + 2
 So good.
1:40 Love seeing a jump landed into a manual. Just looks so good. So much control.
  • + 12
 He has more control on a bike than I do eating cereal
  • + 1
 Good Spank Rims ad?
  • + 2
 I watched 1:33 about 7 times. that was slick.
  • + 54
 that trail and riding was awesome! great edit! seems weird to say but i feel like i havent watched someone like that in a while. nice job!
  • + 7
 my thoughts exactly!
  • + 1

 You mean Nico Vink, right!

 Vinny for Rampage ! ahahah
  • + 11
 @mentalhead Cypress Hill is dope.
  • + 2
 They are one of the bands I get into hip hop with, so I can only agree with you, but I don't think they are dope since IV and this song in particular is so lame.
  • + 2
 agreed. song is ehhh... but Cypress Hill was rad as shit. first tape (yes, tape) i ever bought with a parental advisory sticker on it. i was under 13 and my brother had to buy it for me. one of the first groups i got into hip hop with as well.

riding is so good. i like how this dude shows crashes in all his recent videos like... this is how you get to be super rad, and even we make mistakes a bunch.
  • + 2
 Tape, of course. I was 14 and no problem to buy it by my own as "parental advisory" sticker means nothing in a non-english speaking country Big Grin
  • + 1
 hahaha f*ckin' Al Gore's wife was on a rampage back in the early 90's with her prissy uptight bullshit... what can i tell ya? Black Sunday changed my youth.
  • + 10
 He looks like he's having so much fun! Was great watchin this. Thanks Vincent an team...
  • + 8
 Amazing cable cam shots and gnarly gaps! Way to go Vincent and Gaetan...keep these vids coming!
  • + 4
 I'm 44 and my midlife crisis is to ride a third as good as Vincent and hopefully have a filmer a third as good next year filming my exploits, attempts and fails as this video!!! Brilliant in every sense. VOD without question, and possibly top 10 candidate for 2014 IMHO! Awesome!
