Video: 'The Chill Trail' with Vinny T

Vinny T extends his creativity above and beyond the trails.

The Chill Trail was born out of the desire to integrate a trail into a bike park that would translate an athlete's vision into a trail that everyone could ride. For many years Vinny T. has spent a lot of time in the forest digging for new trails for his videos. No dig, no ride!

The project started in the spring of 2021 and was only finished by June 2022. Like a fine wine, his track took time to reveal its full potential. It's not just digging a track, it's testing, it's correcting the curves, adapting the passages to the environment in order to arrive at a track that allows you to fully exploit your potential on the bike...

But we probably all don't have the potential of Vinny T.

“Many months of work went into the construction of this new track. I am very happy with the result, digging in the forest is as important as riding in my eyes, one cannot go without the other. The fact that the trail is not ephemeral and can be used by everyone is what I really like.The Chill Trail project was born from the collaboration between Bike Vision and Vinny T.”

 I know big bike tailwhips and barspins are a hot topic lately, but Vinny's riding here is beyond sick. Also that trail looks amazing!

 Big bike tailwhips are sick, just not at rampage. Trail did look dope.

 @JFfullsendsonly: why not. If it’s because they are too slopestyle for you then no flips or spins should be allowed either

 @Dillonmennie: Because the heart of rampage is going big and gnarly. If you can flip-whip a jump then it surely could of been bigger. I'd rather see someone bomb a steep chute than barspin a perfectly groomed jump. We have plenty of events for that already. Its not like its the riders' faults either, its not the scoring.

 @Dillonmennie: nah, its actually just really chunky and clunky looking. Get that BMX background 'ish outta here

 @JFfullsendsonly: was thinking about this last week. Hardline is like a 1 line Rampage, and Rampage is an unnecessarily complicated slope style event. If a rider tries to keep the spirit of Rampage alive, like Lacondeguy, they get a rubbish score.

 @ro-bert: Agreed, Brage would've been perfect as well. Shame he couldn't make it this year.

 Anyone else ever notice that a lot of Scott sponsored pro's bikes don't have the silly Twinloc system on them? Maybe Scott should be taking notes...

 Bar spins and tail whips would be pretty hard with twin lock lol.

 Sick riding.

I’m sorry, but is it 27.5 or 29? I guess it’s the former, but could be wrong.
