2011 is now in the past, but what a year it was when I was in UK. I've met an incredible group of individuals, whom I consider my friends and I was able to share what I love doing the most. Seeing their determination, passion and love for mountain biking only made me want to pursue my dream even more.

Sure 2011 wasn't a great year for my camera - 550D. It overheated 3 times in this year, but I was able to capture some of the riding from super friendly riders, such as Ray and Blake Samson, Grant "Chopper" Fielder, Ryan Nangle, Marcel Hunt, Erik Purres. I've spent a night at Ray and Blake's place to film with them on the Isle of Wight, which is off the mainland. I had an amazing time hanging out, filming some riding.





As well as staying at Samson's, I've had the chance to stay over at Grant's place as well. Filmed a variety of riding from dirt jumping to freeride/downhill and it was super fun.

Grant is so gangsta

I went to meet Erik as well, who is an unknown rider in the world, yet we had fun filming and he sure can ride. We drove around some of the spots which are like an hour or 2 away from the town where he lives, had a few laughs, filmed some riding and hiked a lot.

Filming is what I love doing more than anything and I will continue to pursue my dream. Thanks goes out to the riders in this video!

thinking as to how to strangle me

I hope that you all have enjoyed this video!

 VOD for sure. Very nice work. Great filming, great edit, great music. Whoever did the edit was spot on with placing specific moves with the music.

 I agree 100%... VOD! Probably my favorite edit so far in 2012. Sick riding, great song, unique filming, and awesome editing.

 Super clean edit. My vote for VOD by far. Great cinematography, colors, riding, and overall flow. Loved it!

 @mph51 i thought i could be a session77 but idk, the rocker link is longer on the stinky

 I hear ya man. But at 2:33 it's pretty clear that the link arm for the 2009 2010 kona stinky deluxe is the same. The session 77 also doesnt have the drop out performance enhancing (they call it D.O.P.E.) brake system either which you also see around 2:30... and, for good measure, the top and down tube of the bike in the video doesnt match up with the sweet looking frame design the Session 77 has.

B) Did I mention the bike in the video also conveniently has many of the same components that model stinky came with stock?

 great, great,great new way of showing us stuff that usually gets boring real fast even if the riding is amasing.Love the start to finish trail flow feeling including the dj's. Tunes are also nicely synkchronized. super cool vid all around.Job well done. It will most likely make the VOD. Did in my mind.
