@tripleultrasuperboostplusplus: DAMN!! I just watched it again and now I'm just upset about it. I don't think I can ever watch this again! People just shouldn't do this! This is my last comment. I've said enough. Somehow, I feel kinda sick! LOL Hopefully Remy and other riders and video makers will think twice about the negative impacts on the environment they create and negative publicity they might receive if they do something that probably felt in their gut that the shouldn't have.

@tripleultrasuperboostplusplus: Funny - that's EXACTLY how I felt about it! I WANT to watch it but I just cant!! It's painful to watch yet so awesome too. It's like the S&M of Mountain biking! LOL

@remymetailler: Remy. I hope you didn't take this as any attack on you. I totally appreciate and admire you for the fact that you DIDN'T disclose the location of this area AND that you didn't use shovels. From that alone, I got the idea that you ARE wary of the delicate decision making there is to do or not to do this. You are an "artist" on your bike as are the film makers that made the video. Totally awesome!!!. My only concern - not with you - is that I hope everyone doesn't go out to the many places similar to this to try it. Again, no offense made toward you. It's everyone else's minds that need to be clear about the decision to do it more and more etc. Thanks for your videos and riding and thanks for your respect to the land too.

@JamesGTi: James - I hear what you are saying and know what you are thinking. I can tell you this, however; when the upper crusts of some of the delicate soil is broken and disturbed, it can cause erosion by water and mostly wind. Heck, Remy even commented how windy it is there! I have seen some areas where a truck has rode over and across some delicate desert soil and the marks are still there for more than 25, 30, sometimes 50 years! No kidding!! I did some soil and land reclamation work for the US government many years ago and you'd be amazed how fast wind can destroy a "wounded" (for lack of a better term) ground cover. Additionally, when referring to the old Rampage grounds - plants can be planted and things can be done to re-vegetate the area but many times, it's never native again. This is how invasive species of plants move in etc. I realize that we can't just stop living. My concerns are more that many people will try this and want to sink their tires into that soft crust. Let's face it, it's an awesome feeling to crush into softness like ice layered over soft snow. Unfortunately, that crypto soil can take 70 years to mend. I'm not against people wanting to ride down the sides of these things. I would love to if I could and HATS OFF to those of you that can! It's amazing!! Hopefully we can just keep it confined to one area and not the entire (name not mentioned of the area where he's riding) area where this soft delicate soil is. But then - now we're regulating, aren't we? LOL

@SlodownU: To Slodown and all others responding back about ISIS remark etc. Here is what slowdown said.... "And the fact that "your working" is enough justification to do whatever you want, screw the consequences." My response to him/her was solely to that train of thought. If you have that train of thought with everything you do in life, it's that kind of thought process that brings about screwed up people and things such as ISIS or whatever else you can think of that was or is a major catastrophe to earth and people. It was a comment toward that way of thinking, not mountain biking. You all knew DAMN WELL what I meant!

@SlodownU: People unboxing videos doesn't have a 100 or 1000 year consequence on the landscape! Plain and simple! Do whatever you want? Screw the consequences?? Really? Isn't that how ISIS started? The Taliban?? Think about it dude! it's those small minded people (memory of a goldfish, as you put it) that are the ones that ruin things and have no care or remorse for the destruction they've done. The riding is awesome, unfortunately, it's the advertising of it that does the most destruction.

Further clarification here - I think the video and riding is amazing!! Don't get me wrong about that. It's just now, in a world where we are compelled to show the world every breath we take via social media, etc., it can take a toll on nature and natural places that take thousands of years to develop into what they are today. I'm definitely NOT knocking Remy or other riders. Please don't take it that way. This was amazing and awesome to watch...for sure!!!

I hate to say this and some of you are not going to like this at all..... While I love the freeride videos and admire those that do it, I think we all need to take some responsibility to nature and the future of it. We are encroaching upon wilderness (what's left of it) ever day for oil, coal, and yes, even recreation. I know this area where this was filmed. It's very barren and one would think that it's not a big deal to run a few lines down it. Well, it's probably not. However, this has just been publicized world-wide!!! Now everyone will want to take a wack at it!! The next thing you know, there will be resorts and gas stations and McDonald's and the next Red Bull Rampage staged here. Maybe it's not such a good idea to publicize some things....??? Maybe one should keep their secret places to do fun things "secret" and to themselves. Believe me, once you tell someone of a magic place that is untouched, it won't last very long!!! These places are getting fewer and farther between. Take some responsibility for them and their preservation. Just my two cents.
