First watch teaser of Filip Polc´s Urban Downhill part of Signatures filmed in the historical centre of Prague.

During the summer months, Prague's historical centre is flooded with tourists. That's why we take advantage of the longest day of the year and start the shooting around five a.m. when even the greatest tourism enthusiasts are fast asleep.

Taking their dogs on a morning walk, first people show up around 7 a.m. It's quite a surprise for them...

Stairs, stairs and even more stairs...

In the middle of September the shooting starts again, only this time in Bratislava. Filip takes us close to the Bratislava castle. There, in June 2013, he organized a race with some of the world's best riders.

After a few emails and phone calls, we are granted the permission to shoot at the Bratislava castle and in the parks nearby. On the photo you can see Polcster right before the first turn on the track of Bratislava City Downhill.

 Regarding the 7 Freeride Trends Pinkbike is glad are dead. Urban downhilling is going to bring back Urban Freeride in downhill bikes. And it is going to be awesome! A trend I have been patiently awaiting to return.

 It is kinda funny... if this article and video was done in the same way but it was written as urban freeride instead of DH, I wonder how much hate or lack of attention it'd get? There's very little separating the two to the point where I'd agree that urban freeride never went away. The name just changed.

 I refuse to jump on the bandwagon and start using the word "enduro". My bike is all-mountain, and I just call it "riding my bike". The only "enduro" bike out there is a specialized

 Oh yes! It is good to train before dawn so there is less probability to run down a pedestrian.
