 Riding begins at 2:37
Meaning half the video is the lead in and build up to the other half...
I Would suggest a 30 - 60 sec intro next time... I started to wonder if it was a travel vid or if I would see some rubber on dirt...

 and yet a lot of kids will down vote this comment simply because it's advice on what would make the edit better for members on a mtb site... I'm with you, amazing edits don't need minutes of non-biking. Not every great edit has to be like Life Cycles, haha. Oh and to make the kids happy, this was an amazing edit despite the long intro.

 yes the intro was a little long but how many of us get to ride Sicily??? atleast it wasnt 3 min of some guy putting his gloves and goggles on.... think you missed the point Bruh

 Haha, no, it's pretty easy to get the point as to why they did it but that doesn't change anything. It's called personal preferences, bruh, and it seems a few others have the same preferences for shorter intros. Wink

 Yeah, shorter intros would be nicer, but then it would also be nicer to see some of the background of where they are going, the final conclusion! longer videos Wink

 1) Sicilia rules - but the "art director" unfortunately omitted the best (except the Etna, one of the planet's most important volcanoes)

2) Chris Akrigg's and Colin Stewart (aka Big Col on Vimeo) vids should be THE go-to material to lear what and how to film and edit. Most of the pseudo "underground" stuff that is being published lately is so inane it makes me want to puke... full of clich├ęs (time lapses ...aaaargh!), blatant product placement, or some sort of take on the music vid culture...

Rant over - happy riding, in Sicily or elsewhere

 Somebody would know what tires installs the guy on his bike at 1:37 ? They seem aggressive and effective.
I don't know if there are the same on the white wheels on the wall, They look good.
