 That was awesome, KC shreds....but the claw was not be outdone, he was ripping!

 Its nuts how quickly KC progressed on a bike especially after his serious neck injury. That was really fun watching those two in such an epic place.
  • + 32
 I don't think there was a moment I wasn't absorbed by this episode. So epic and well documented. Cool story to accompany it, too. Talk about a dream come true for KC!!

 When I saw that it was a 26 minute video, I was like "Oh God, I'll have to skip through to find the 1 minute section that makes this video". Started watching it and didn't skip a second. I enjoyed it all, and I loved the cut between riding and the local culture. So awesome!

 KCs got to be in damn good shape to hike-a-bike up those mountains in 114deg heat.

 Sorry, you can't immediately Tweet your Strava segment. When you fix that, the lawyers, dentists and army of half sponsored adventurers will come with their carbon bikes. Machines will come home, to the place of their birth... Namasteee

 @SniperWZ awesome pictures gobi looks like a completely different planet to me.
  • + 15
 Wow that was incredible! The Gobi looks incredible, would love to go there one day.
  • + 14
 would be a sick rampage destination tho
  • + 13
 I wanna see a rampage-style comp where the riders can spread out over a massive zone and build truly unique, individual lines. Would be tough on filmers and spectators, but so what? You could have breaks between runs to move everyone to the next line
  • + 12
 Rampage should be its own event series with locations around the world.................DUH..............FMB can skip Utah. FMB can actually be renamed. Slope is one thing. Freeride is another. Also, Enduro should be MRC...mountainbike rally championship, just like the WRC.
  • + 1
 RCRDRVR, I like your thinking... I love WRC and always found Enduro to be the biking version of that... It definitely pushes mind, body, and equipment to the limits...
  • + 1
 Seeing all the fans along the stages reminded me of rally. Also, the stage selection highlights some of the best trails in an area just like rally. Sure the endurance is there, but not so much, that's XC.
  • + 1
 lol rcrdrvr you've said what's on the mind of every keyboard warrior out there who might not like the idea of racing cus going fastest is only ever reserved for the attention seekers and elitists, the go getters and the have been there done thats last i check this mtb thing was only ever there because of imagination, amongst most other actually historically relevant stuff made or future inspiring to be made by human beings

 Thank you for your comments guys ! It's a great pleasure for me to see you enjoyed it.

 really nice production dude. really like the documentary kind of style - showing a bit of the local culture in a "day in the life of".
  • + 6
 Poor kid, they should have sponsored the trip with at least a chopper. Must have been a nightmare climbing there. They should also maybe host a rampage there one day, it would be the reddest thing ever. So much variety.
  • + 5
 From what I hear, that option has already been discussed! That would be so sick.

 Excellent scene + rad places !! Reminds me of "Where The Trail Ends" because of Gobi, Darren, and the lip, but you successfully tried to be different, especially with Deane's riding style, and the small monument. Well done @FASTFOKUS !!!

 WOW FastFokus!
I love the documentary style. Great edit between amazing footage and talking head.
I read that it was filmed in 4K but where can you stream/buy it in that resolution? Have only found HD-version.
  • + 2
 Thank you very much ! Really appreciate to see people taking the time to give me their feedback.
I shot this documentary in 5k actually. For many different reasons. The raw and cinema quality, which is something rare in our sport and something i wanted to watch on my TV :-) The possibility to grab some still from the footage in 5K. The fact in the close future, 4K will be the actual HD standard, so the series is "4K ready". Some TV channels are already broadcasting in 4K and are looking for 4K content. So that's good we can provide them mountain bike stuff and so promote our sport. When VOD and Bluray capacity will be able to handle 338min (13x26min) in 4K (Hope in 2016) i will offer the series in 4K Bluray and 4K VOD, you have my word ! In the meantime, the actual HD Bluray + a nice TV = AMAZING ! Trust me !
You can already enjoy the 4K quality on the last trailer : youtu.be/kXQhdfnIKO8
