Spring in BC is a time when the weather seems to have a mind of its own, bikes are being readied for a season of abuse, and riders are just getting back into their groove. During a trip around the Vancouver area, I stopped in to visit the Coastal Crew along with Mike Hopkins. Incidentally, Joe Schwartz and the Matthews brothers, Stephen and Peter, were also in town to pound out some early season loam laps.

This video was shot in an afternoon, one session at one place, and serves as a reminder that if the vibe is right, the riders are stoked, and the light is firing you can get a lot done in an hour or two. Between the backlight rain and massive whips, I felt the bike had to go away and the camera had to come out. A big thanks go out to the Coastal Crew for supporting mountain biking (buy their new film, From the Inside Out!), Mike Hopkins for making that trip happen, and the riders for having fun. Now, it's time for some whips!

 feeling pretty appreciative to see an edit like that on a free website. the music and the imagery worked so well off each other, and the riding made me want to call in sick. but i'm in my office already. i doubt they'd miss me come to think of it... nice video lads. fuckin banger really.

 Felt like waay to little happened in those 2:43.. If just it was longer. Beautiful though!!

 I like the slow-mo. It adds atmosphere. Maybe a bit too much. I do agree though that not much actually happened in a 2:43 video of that quality. However I'm not going to complain too much because they could actually be selling that and people may even buy it and we are getting it for free in high definition!!!!!!!!!

 Angles are spot on, both that of the camera and the angle those bikes are being thrown against their trajectory.

 They are slowly taking over the world.....frame by frame, whip by whip.....

 rumour has it that they're just re branded mavics... cant remember which model though.

 Not sure if they are still using the same set ups, but the first few years the rims were DT 6.1 and similar. Shimano will likely release their own rim one day, but for now they are rebadged rims from other rim makers.

 Ahh I see, because i thought i never saw them on Pinkbike so that explains it cheer guys.

 Holy gnarly!! Stoked to see you guys shredding so hard, and with Stephen and Peter as well! If this is just a web edit, Inside Out is going to be insane.

 This is an awesome video, but to say the title is time for some whips so the video is all about whipping and they are proffesional riders i wouldnt say they are that good at whips really :S

 no kidding, i can get more whipped than that, and im a girl

 Ya finally someone else with a brain on here. These pinksters give propies before they even watch the vid and see how laim the action is. How about next video the crew shoots better whips on a crappy camera in low def. Then it would balance out.
