 No surprise that it requires Sterling Lorence + Matt Hunter skills to make a cool 29er pic.

 I'm sure they ride great, but they just look too goofy for me

 The well lit dust behind his right arm.. and knowing to do it. such a rad shot! When I flipped to the page with this photo in BIKE mag, let out a "holy shit!". my wife said, "What's wrong??" from the other room. hahahaha..

Well done Sterling and Matt! One of my favorite shots.

 @shrockie That's not lit light, he's going so fast he's burning 29" rubber.

 Also no surprise that such a talented, level headed rider decided to switch to 29er when not on the mountain.

 Mountain biking- Screwing gravity over since the 70s

 I really wanna see a slo-mo video of this. Not that I'm skeptical but I just think it would look awesome

 So epic. He's shredding that enduro 29er so hard lately. Really doesn't matter what the bike is its the rider. So run what you brung and have fun kids

 I didn't even realise that was possible on a bike. Craaazy

 Then clearly you have not seen enough riding

 You cant just turn a picture on its side and pass it off as POD. Oh wait....

 We'll try that next time we ride....

 You first!

 Buy me those shades and I'll have all I need.

 Neg proppers are stupid. Literally, there have been many times I've seen riders how down that low. If you didn't know that was possible, you clearly haven't seen legit shredding.

 Funny, I usually have to unhide Kimura's comments if I want to read them...

 @bhd13 It's so true though....lol

 So is everybody's conclusion: that's not possible?

 It's not only possible, it's commonplace Wink

 Getting this low isn't the trick - getting back up is.

 If you flip your screen to the right you will shortly realise that you are questioning the authenticity of the rider. Or the trees...

 Why must people doubt the authenticity of Matt Hunter

 its got to be real look at the tire marks on the trail just in front of his right hand. Unless im not looking at it right or he is good at Photoshop i think its real
  • + 5
 ...it was a joke?

 Um, so this horizontal thing is cool and all, but can we talk about those forearm striations?? Hot damn.

No, but way to go, fellas... Technique for days. I only look like this when I'm falling over, and it never, EVER looks that cool.
  • + 7
 Go home gravity you're drunk!!!
  • + 6
 So THIS is what happens when you don't blow up a berm during a turn...interesting.
  • + 2
 Don't get me wrong, this picture looks great! But I do not know how about for you all but for me, taking out one frame from a movie (which is being made for commercial with a slow mo camera) is a f*cking cheating and not the "photo of thee year"...
  • + 2
 so, he is using a random hillside to get 90 degrees... oh wait, lower than 90 degrees. Someone on this forum once commented on another POD "I suck". Well, this is the case with me here.
  • + 1
 good thing he didnt pull out his pink. ive never seen one going that low, matt the ruler of wallride. maybe he will not huck as big as he used too that doesnt mean he can ride on the same level as when he was younger. hes probably even better then before
  • + 3
 Matt must be on a different planet with little to no gravity because i don't think that's possible on Earth.
  • + 4
 That's only 89 degrees tilt, try again.

 Friend: what you doing this weekend?
Matt: getting sideways.
Friend:why would you be doing that when you could be riding ur bike?
Matt: thats what i meant :p
  • + 1
 Nice shot, angles and timing over the rise of the ground make it look like you could hit a corner and actually get that low if the ground was flat all the way through the turn
  • + 1
 well, I saw this on the front page early this morn, but didn't click on it.....my bad just did.....holy chitos, hunter is an forever will be sick! THE COLLECTIVE...........an the rest of them

 This pic is used for an ad on page 3 of this month's MBA magazine. Caption reads: "Elbow Pads Sold Separately" haha.

 Hate to break it to you, but this is possible because of gravitational forces....
  • + 1
 Ahahahah

 High velocity sticks you to the ground.

 I thought it was centrifugal force rather than gravity?
  • - 1
 But without gravity, would the tires stay on the ground?

 Ha ha - can't argue with that

 That's an awesome pic, all it is though I'd just three layers. 1. The background picture 2. The guy on the bike (rotated) 3. The foreground, it's quite easy to do this if you think all you need is photo shop but I still haven't figured out what the smoke stuff is yet...

 I think I'd need an "epiduro" to ride like THAT.

 anyone seem any footage of this?

 :-O What's that white cloud behind him? A 250 cc two-stroke exhaust?
