This video was more of a stop motion learning experience for me. It was tricky at first but i'm always finding ways to make them smoother and higher quality with each one I finish. Expect to see more of this style from me in the future. Enjoy!

Thanks for watching,

 It has been to long Silvia... you've been missed.
  • + 56
 Yes, I fear if you disappear like that again I may have to ride my bike off a drop far greater than my skills would allow me to survive (likely 5-6ft.)

 I need help anyone, Ive been doing are Locale FVMBA races and have won 2 of 4 them and came 1st in series final for all the Super D enduro. I feel i can ride better and have my skill higher. I got to ride with wade simmons in the area, he showed me some tips on how to break my nervous system, but when i get in that mood i ride horribly am just scared to let off the break. Ive talked to some people including specialized reps. they say i have high Potential in riding and i have the right skills but need to learn how to let off the break a bit. if you could provide any tips and or ideas? It would be great, Cheers from William Big Grin -- From British Columbia Canada

 This is an honest question, Why are some people so mean.i know its the internet and everyone has an opinion, But i need some actual answers :/

 Maybe get some less powerful brakes? Therefore they wouldn't slow you down anywhere near as much. So maybe Elixer 1s? haha
  • + 14
 Doesn't seem related to the comment. What helped me is going chain-less for a bit. It helps you focus on keeping your speed.

 Both great, Bjorntsc. I will try that out, It seems like a great idea. and UnknownDHRider. I got Elixer 5s On my Specialized Enduro. ill just tone them down a bit

 I am soooo happy right now!!

 @Pdownful watch this vid before your next ride?
  • + 8
 1 finger braking instead of 2
  • + 1
 use smaller discs and the most basic pads and yes, one finger braking.
  • + 2
 pdownful, just go to a trail that you know really well and take it section by section, just tell yourself im going to use the brakes for one second less then i usually do, and just work your way to less and less

flag Pdownful (Oct 2, 2013 at 6:58) (Below Threshold)
 Hmm ill try that, I know i always use two fingers
  • + 3
 hard tails can help, forces you to smooth out the trail. Work on your basics and everything else gets easier. And if you really want a challenge ride it single speed, forces you to maintain your speed through corners and technical sections

 Technical is my problem, Corners not so much. I could always lock out my rear suspension?

 @Pdownful, so you're riding a specialized Enduro on DH trails, or just regular AM trails? I'd find a pumptrack, not only will that help with your endurance, but it will teach you how to keep and hold speed, and where and when you might need to use the brakes. If you don't have access to a pumptrack, then get a hardtail/bmx bike and ride at your local skatepark, see how many jump lines you can connect without ever pedalling or braking. If you can't do that then just ride street, downtown, there are soooooo many things that relate directly to DH riding/racing, and if you learn em on a hardtail, it pretty much directly translates to being faster and more efficient on a fully.

 Locking out your rear suspension in order to practice riding tech. stuff?

You're well on your way to a fulfilling and great career in mtbing!


That edit was so sick. I loved the time lapse chairlift shot next to the no-look backie. It's insane how fast he was going in some of those shots.
  • + 1
 As always sick stuff. Very cool edit and music added as well. ...and dreamy riding.

 It says Silvia?

 I wish I could shred as hard as Sherrard

 @pdownful yeah one finger braking helped me a lot as well. if you know the trail well and realize that you are braking too much in a certain section, just keep riding it, slow at first, so that you build complete muscle memory for the whole line. Then try it again without touching the brakes. after riding the line about 5 or 6 times doing it without brakes will be so easy because it's almost like your bike just knows exactly where to go. If you're simply braking too much on certain kinds of features instead of one particular section, simply try to control the speed and direction of the bike with your whole body and not your fingers that are on the brake levers. I quote something in Bicycling magazine, "Think of your brakes as a dimmer, not an on-off switch"

your comment was also completely unrelated the the initial topic of the thread.

 The riding, terrain, and filming are sooooooooo good. I think I have watched this 15 times.

 that backflip had quite the hangtime...haha
  • + 21
 no no his clothes matched well

 That got me stoked. I love the stop motion, such a sweet concept. Your videos are always super re-watchable.

 It amazes me how Silvia uses creative filming effects in a manner that doesn't take away from the riding at all, but highlights it. The clip with the slo mo back flip and the chairlift moving fast, so awesome!

 Critter narrowly avoids rear wheel of death at 1.20. Such a sweet vid.

 He got taken out by someone sitting on the landing of a jump a few months back filming with Anthill(?), don't know if he's back on a bike yet.

 Dylan Sherrard, Matt Miles and Ian Killick are truly inspirational, for me they are the epitome of mountain biking. They have skill, speed and sh*t loads of flair and ride solely for the fun of it and because they enjoy it which is always clear to see. There you have 3 guys who are so wired into their bikes it's unreal...keep it up guys and a big thanks to Silvia.

 This shit has me so stoked right now...in the being when he lands that whip and the weeds are flying in the air...ppppff...super sik

 I'm really glad I'm finally healed up from my injuries last month, because this video makes me want to ride in such a bad way. Tomorrow, I ride!! Nowhere near the levels of Dylan, but ride all the same.

 Oh yeah liking the stop motion up to the lips. The 360 stop motion is cool. The chairlift sped up and Dylan slowed down that was brilliant! Wiked vid. Music is spot on.
