 You don't like repetitive noises for 6 minutes?
  • + 12
 yeah i don't usually complain about the music but my god, that felt like a weevil digging into my brain.
  • + 1
 Please just make that noise stop
  • + 6
 Completely agree, he had a lot of good stuff to say alongside great riding but you had to suffer the soundtrack to hear it and boy did that grate on the ears... like nails on a blackboard isn’t far off.

 @milanboez thanks! Its hard to find descent music so glad you enjoyed it. If your looking for work, im hiring a music consultant if your interested?
  • + 3
 right now.....bla bla ....right now.....squeek squeak. Music has become so uncreative
  • + 3
 I was gonna say basically the same thing. Great camera work and awesome shots, but then...that noise. Oi....
  • + 1
 @imho4ep: Yup... deal breaker for me as well.
  • + 10
 @Scrobb: So sick man, music works well
  • + 15
 Am I the only one who liked the song? Better than that punk/metal garbage surrounding every other video.
  • + 33
 Fact: No song will ever be perfect enough for a Pinkbike audience.

 @Auzyman: Nope, I was really quite digging it too.

 @potateo: haha thanks tate
  • + 2
 @Scrobb: for sure music taste is totally subjective and you'll never please everyone. Finding the right track for an edit is always difficult, especially if copyright is a concern. I'm not sure my guitar skills qualify me as an artist I'm afraid. If you want filming and editing help though I'll be on the next flight to NZ!
  • + 1
 @milanboez: yeah definitely is. Its pretty entertaining. Haha, will let you know if I ever need a hand

 Fuck this wubwub music i want to hear royal blood for the 10th time.

 lol, old people
  • + 2
 @Scrobb: thanks for the offer, I already have employment though Wink but on the flip side, if you’re looking for a good piece that would have fit this well and may be useful for the future... Ocean by John Butler is a saweeet track by a great artist from down under!

 Hell yeah! Good luck Conor, make NZ proud.

  • + 23

  • + 14

 Am I the only one who thought the music added to the video??
  • + 0
 That music genre has some absolute magic in it. This particular tune was not one of them.
  • + 5
 Hell yeah Conor.. awesome video. Be cheering for ya!
  • + 5
 Where's that gap jump? Kinda looked like the outlet at Wanaka
  • + 1
 I think it's up the road towards Glenorchy in the burned patch
  • + 1
 Never-mind, watched it again and you're probably right
  • + 1
 @Joshsmiht: It's in Wanaka
  • + 1
 It's the outlet. I think it was put in for the Drop In boys, but the old run in and landing were super sketchy. The next move was a cliff drop to scree slope down to the lake.
  • + 1
 "...For some the i know aren't too bad I just get it over and done with"
Conor, I like you and you seem like a nice dude but gfto man, the gap looked huge and the landing is narrow as hell. As someone who pisses his pants on a 5m double I don't appreciate that kind of sarcasm ! Wink

 Thank you for the inspration, Conor.

Me and my little ripper wish you all the best for Rampage. Who knows what's going to happen. :thumbsup:

Hope to see you sending it once again at next year's LooseFest.

 Anyone knows the redbull tv broadcasting time? It says 2pm for SaoPaulo/Brazil/TimeZone. Just want to make sure it is correct. Any other person from another region can confirm what time the app says?
  • + 2
 Awh Mhy Ghawd! That Dream Track in Queenstown, those jumps are so huge. Checked it out on youtube, that right hander to road gap whaat tha hell is thaaat ?!

 Dayem, what a banger video... knocked it out of the park guys... definitely on my shortlist of videos for VOY! Goodluck Connor... you were a fricken trooper last year!

 nice land cruiser.

 Man forget about Rampage - he could be the first Joyride competitor on a DH bike with that bag of tricks
  • + 1
 Hope he doesn't try to show off any of those flipity, dipity tricks at Rampage. That's no place to show off your "skills". Just keep it big and boring alright.
  • + 3
 Man, that was such a sweet vid- mad skills and mad style!
  • + 3
 Is it easy to become a citizen of NZ?
  • + 2
 It was pretty easy with the right skills, could all be changing with new government...
  • + 3
 @EckNZ: You'll only let people in with the right skills? That shit will get you called a Nazi over here.
  • + 1
 If it's anything like Australia....fairly strict requirements for immigration
  • + 4
 That canyon gap tho!
  • + 3
 Amazing vid. Good luck Conor!!
  • + 1
 Oh wow, amazing vid! By the way, is there any on board videos of the new Dream Track, can't really recognise it since i was there.
  • + 1
 So what's better, Wanaka/Queenstown or Whistler? It looks like Whistler might still have a better overall trail network.
  • + 1
 Good luck Conor! That was a great video edit, it's nice to see what's going on in the rider's mind.
  • + 3
 Sick truck!!
  • + 1
 ..so right. Head went straight to „need that truck“-mode when seeing the picture.
  • + 1
 Looks like MacFarlane is training on some proper terrain! Hope to see you up there in the results.

 So good Connor! Good luck at Rampage, hope you kill it!
