Vinny T, Nico Vink & Makken Give Old Man Winter What For - Video
Apr 3, 2018 at 5:29
Like the dog that hunts the fox, these three amigos were onto the scent of something wild and raw. Something that would be under the watchful eye and firm grapple of he himself...
The steeps that flank Lake Geneva are the home turf of Vinny T and have been the proving ground for the Frenchman's effortless style
A glimpse of autumn through a thick covering of powder
Nico Vink and Makken, also no strangers to riding with effortless style in the snow.
What you can't see here is quite how steep this is. It was hard enough walking down a 200m plus 45deg slope in the snow and ice, let alone riding it.

10+ years on pinkbike, this could be the sketchiest thing I have ever seen on video. Because I know from experience how hard it is. Made me uncomfortable. Mad props to both riders and filmmakers.

Blown away, best video I have seen in a very long time! Definitely pure talent from a rider and filmmaker perspective. In the words of Hans Landa "BRAVO!"
(Apr 4, 2018 at 3:00)
Very kind sir! It was a solid team effort that's for sure.

Thank you kindly

: Awesome job really, thank you!

I've used studded tires for moto for years... and it's not sketchy. You get more traction almost than dirt sometimes - those spikes really dig into frozen ground. Problem is... when you lock the brake completely and just slash the spikes aren't doing shit.

That is a chilling cool video. Pure art, with a track that sounds like it has been made for the clip. Happy to see Makken and the crew charge so hard, go Makken! One of the best clips I have seen on Pinkbike, period.
(Apr 4, 2018 at 8:00)
Such a good crew! Makken's onboard narration rules too. Thanks for the kind words

. I'm a "XC" kind of guy and not a huge gravity guy - but hot damn - that was really awesome. Well done you.
(Apr 4, 2018 at 3:00)
. Glad you enjoyed it.
(Apr 3, 2018 at 20:39)
Riding isn't that bad on snow- if you have the right tires. I went in the snow with a buddy who's running Maxxis Minion DHF, and he had no grip. I have EThirteen TRS+ tires and gave pretty good grip.
(Apr 4, 2018 at 8:01)
Maybe not in normal conditions. Though I'd beg to differ on Vinny T's local trails, most of which are a sustained 45 degrees.
(Apr 4, 2018 at 6:24)
holy shit just looked at the photos after the vid and ye a snow tire alright theyve got huge screws in them i hope he didnt ride over him with his tire when he crashed in to him ????
(Apr 4, 2018 at 0:29)
Only missing thing is second angle of that crash, it must have been gnarly
(Apr 3, 2018 at 15:54)
Good Gawd..no words to describe how Beautifully Cool that was..
(Apr 3, 2018 at 16:46)
What a wild ride you guys!! Love the tire spikes!!
(Apr 4, 2018 at 9:51)
Very impressed by their speed on snow. Nice tracks above Lugrin...
(Apr 3, 2018 at 13:48)
Cheers for putting this together.
(Apr 3, 2018 at 14:02)
. It was a fun project. Hat's off to those guys for riding those wild slopes!
(Apr 4, 2018 at 6:36)
This is pure MADNESS ! I wonder how much does a custom tire like this weigh...
(Apr 3, 2018 at 12:11)

Omar Ghod. insane riding and wicked edit!
(Apr 3, 2018 at 12:23)
(Apr 4, 2018 at 8:30)
That was fukken insane !! Surreal to watch ,, We dont get conditions anywhere near that where I'm from ..
(Apr 5, 2018 at 6:38)
MAAN, I could not do that. My brain just does not operate that quickly I'd have hit a tree in like the first 10-20 seconds
(Apr 4, 2018 at 6:50)
Any chance of knowing what the music track is?

(Apr 4, 2018 at 6:20)

(Apr 3, 2018 at 14:05)
(Apr 4, 2018 at 12:54)
anyone knows where this is?
(Apr 4, 2018 at 7:52)
Ha, love the response at the beginning, that looks intense.
