Max works a full time office job for an engineering firm in downtown Vancouver. He sits in a cubicle wearing a button-down shirt and a tie five days a week, crunching numbers and drawing plans. This can be frustrating. Luckily, Max has a truck, a bike, and Jack Torretto's sage advice: "Ride or die, Max, ride or die."

 Enduro is stage racing. This is mountain biking, very good mountain biking.
  • + 24
 yea, if he was on a DH bike everyone would be calling it a DH video!!

 Because you ride your dh bike uphill?? Shut the f*ck up.
  • + 3
 @markunit10 there's no uphill riding in this video, so YOU shut the hell up you tit!!! hahaha
  • + 39
 Of course the riding was outstanding but the star of the show was that water bottle cage. Put through the paces, took a serios beating, but never once let go. 5 Stars, standing ovation. Slow Clap.

 first time i truly enjoyed a "enduro" video in a while. keep up the shredding!
  • + 15
 maybe because it was just a good old tyme biking run....
  • + 27
 or maybe its because its not enduro. It is just pure raw mountain biking!

 @mischieff enduro is a type of racing, DH is a type of riding.
  • + 1
 ....I thought it was literally the act of riding down a large hill.
  • + 11
 Haha not to be "that guy" but what happened to freeride or downhill or even all mountain or die not enduroooo come onnnn. Gotta admit though riding was 2 thumbs up.
  • + 39
 Haha maybe we will just call the next one " 'Mountain Biking' ".
  • + 5
 Very true even better.
  • + 22
 Is your name not adi'enduro'...
  • + 8
 @adienduro - truth. not trying to be "that guy" either, but I thought enduro involved some uphill too, no? to label this enduro or die and all it is an awesome video of going down hill on a cool trail, makes me think this is just fun biking. if any label, it's DH or FR given the content. BTW - getting sick of labels. if I am wrong here, what makes this video enduro? the bike is branded that way? it has a water bottle cage? was he rocking an urge helmet? f-ing stop the labels and call it fun or die.

 @rmcfarland meant to be a joke at the time. Never going to live it down haha.

 Enduro is a race format. This is just biking...really good biking.

 @dtax - agreed, it is all marketing. But I'm alright not watching a video of some dude pedaling up a hill.

 dude was hauling. that's what mtb is about! who cares what you call it. Enduro, freeride, DH, flurgenschnappin, whatever. you all sound like little kids fighting over what specific sub-genre a band is. Not everything needs to be defined
  • + 2
 Fully agree. Why do we need to define it? Sounds like something road riders need to do (no disrespect to roadies -- lots of my friends also ride skinny tire bikes). It's an awesome rip with a great edit. I live out in the Fraser Valley and ride trails that look like this all the time (Sumas, Ledgeview, Bear...) watching this makes me want to get my bike out this very minute and go riding. I think that was the whole point. Don't get caught up in the name. Lots of enduro stages look just like this.
  • + 5
 This edit speaks to me. I sit in an engineering office in downtown Denver in a button down shirt staring at the front range. The only problem is the trails are totally shit in comparison to PNW trails...
  • + 2
 I don't how you front range dudes stay sane on those trails! Haha
  • + 1
 Yeah I totally agree. Trails in Denver and the front range in general are totally shit and hardly pass for "mountain biking". Everyone should especially avoid Bergen Peak, White Ranch, Dakota Ridge, Mt. Falcon, and Three Sisters due to their overall suckiness.
  • + 2
 ^haha, I'm sure he's also referring to the vast amounts of people on the trails, not just the quality.

Oh and you forgot Plymouth creek to the suck list Wink

 I sit in an engineering office in Flagstaff...surrounded by trails. No truck needed.
  • + 2
 any of you engineering guys hiring? haha

 My office is in desperate need of mid-level and senior guys, we have plenty of EITs though @markunit10
  • + 1
 aw, im a senior student haha

 Wow! Awesome riding, a nice poke at Enduro and a great FIDLAR song. What's not to like? I have that tune in my ride playlist and I rip it just as much as Homer at least in my mind. The original video is pretty great too...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXTc3Choroo

  • + 0
 I don't think the video would have gotten as many views with a different title

 Not a well thought out title considering the recent rider fatality in Colorado.
