With a relationship dating back to August of 2004, Kyle Norbraten is Chromag’s first and longest running sponsored rider. Before that, the Chromag contingent was just a bunch of friends who hung out and rode bikes. Some of the guys were coaches at the Whistler bike camps and word started getting around about a talented 16-year-old from Prince George that was outpacing the coaches by the end of the season.

Twelve years later and Kyle Norbraten is an accomplished world-class rider who has proven himself through many video parts and as one of the best big mountain riders year after year at Red Bull Rampage. Kyle continues to progress as a rider and for this video he wanted to get back to his favorite trails on the Sunshine Coast where the trails are fresh and life is simple.

 We got robbed by Hillary Clinton. She wasn't for American people, and she didn't care much about young people with college debt. She also cheated Bernie Sanders out of the Democratic nomination. All she had to do was choose Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders as her vice presidential candidate, and she would have won.

 @Ryan-L: Do you know how many jobs it will create? Every year, Mexicans working in the U.S. send at least $20 billion back to Mexico in the form of remittances, placing a huge drain on the us economy. Trump could impound this remittance. But I'd be more concerned about the massive flow of SJWs to Canada if I were you.

 Cant we all just chill about elections and watch some bike videos? Is that too much to ask? This is a bike website not a political news station.

 America has been getting robbed for years. Huge amounts of government waste. Illegals working for cash. Illegals collecting welfare. Lazy Americans collecting welfare. No incentives to manufacture domestically. The list goes on and on. Hopefully you'll have some new neighbors soon TOBi1. Your 19 year old ass doesn't know shit about what it is to work in America, providing for a family, while your government fights to give away your earnings.

 @ibishreddin: Because of our lousy economy, Mexicans have been fleeing the US faster than we can deport them. Those jobs their taking, are low wage, hard work positions, which lazy Americans don't want to take. Go troll on fox news if you want to spit trash.

 With only a 46% in voter turnout, the lowest voter turnout in US history, and citizens not wanting anymore blood of innocents on our hands, I can see why people voted for Trump.

Hillary is also a puppet of some rich and influential globalist. Americans are tired of globalist destroying the US from within, with things like NAFTA and TPP, and deregulation of EPA standards via bureaucracy .

Then, if you ever got a chance to understand who Sidney Blumethal is, you wouldn't vote for Hillary without feeling like a giant hypocrite douche!

  • + 2
 Straight from the Coastal Crew website, 4th October 2015:

"The Coastal Crew has always been fuelled by like-minded individuals, motivated by the same goals and in search of the next cool thing to share with the world of MTB. After years of creating trails, web videos, feature films and now the Coast Gravity Park our relationships have gone through a lot of change.

We are disappointed to announce Kyle Norbraten made a choice to no longer be a part of The Coastal Crew or Coast Gravity Park. Kyle’s direction has shifted from that of the CC & CGP ultimately leading to a situation that doesn’t allow us to work together in a healthy manner. We wish Norbz all the best in all his future endeavours."

 Sick vid! 360's and backflips hardly qualify as keeping it simple!
  • + 2
 some say 360's and backflips arn't tricks at all, just a form of rotating sensation. Every 360 you land adds time to your life...did you know that? Life is one big circle, and these 2 "sensations" are life's pause button.
