bigquotesI wanted to make two edits this summer. Of course another shreddit was going to be one of them, but for the other I wanted something totally different. A bit more work has gone into this than filming a typical shreddit so hopefully everyone likes it just as much! And for anyone wondering about another loose laps shreddit, don't worry it's coming soon after Crankworx! - George Branigan

George Brannigan Rips Down Coronet Peak

Coronet Peak, New Zealand, is host to one of the best downhill tracks in the country. Any downhiller who has ridden it will tell you that the dirt up there is all-time. The grip is endless, and the soil has a give in it that feels something like carving powder to a downhill bike. Combined with natural features, on a very well-designed track, insane speeds and truly epic views this track is something pretty unique.

George Brannigan Rips Down Coronet Peak

George came up with the concept of a film that looked basically like a full run of the track with a drone following him. The drone would provide the perspective to show off the flow of this awesome track and we cut it with shots to bring you back into the action on the ground.

 That was sweet, but I'm waiting for more Motörhead and bottom-outs.

 I was so stocked when I saw the article, "yes some pedal to the metal!!!" and then this...
I do not think thats the kind of music he would like to hear while riding...

 Your a loose goose George ! Loving it haha !

 that was rad

 Commencal truly combined a rad package of riders! Métailler, Brannigan and Thirion all have this aggressive - YOLO - no risk no fun style, it's completely awesome!

 song was super lame, riding was amazing.

 No bike porn - No punkrock - No overcompensating Slow-Mo - no eover epic golden light
instead new angles, great perspectives, rhythm. Something totally different - I like it.
Let the riding do the talking Smile

 I like the speed and the lack of intentional berm destruction. A recent vid of the same trail made me disgusted with all the unneeded roosts. The trail builders in the this world thank you George!
  • - 1
 Agreed @MTBHammer, but that's the difference between someone who wants to look like a world class rider and someone who actually is one of the world's best riders - the guys who are that good don't need to try to throw up roost to look fast, because they actually ARE fast. Not naming any spedupsramvideosofryanhoward in particular though.

 Yeah, no cheesy slow-mo was a welcomed un-feature (I think I just made-up a phrase, but it works).
  • + 4
 Was ok I guess but last year one with a tenth of the production value was about 10 times better.

 @Socket Just replayed 3 minutes - 3 bikes starring Ryan Howard. www.youtube.com/watch?v=E19kytItS8k
To me it looks breathtaking raw and fast, without any need to speed up something. Can you name any video of him that has been manipulated?
  • + 0
 The was a recent vid of the same trail I was not to fond of. www.pinkbike.com/news/coronet-peak-fabien-cousin-video-2016.html. George's vid killed it compared to this one.

 @Joe0711 that wasn't the one I was referring to, try this one www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6yx6I3e4XU especially parts at 1:19 and 1:43 are where it's most visible. Pretty disrespectful to speed footage of someone like that up IMO cos he actually is a sick rider - manipulated footage is like saying "actually you're not good enough to be impressive so we cheated a bit", but regardless the deliberate slashing all the time is lame.

 So fast and relaxed. If i was going that speed i'd ride off the side of the mountain.

 Ain't no Motörhead

 I regularly have a dream were I'm manualing like that, then I wake up and I'm bitterly disappointed!
  • + 2
 I actually do, too. I have awesome manual/wheelie dreams quite regularly. Just gotta get some more practice in...

 Really don't like all the cuts, makes it hard to watch

 Awesome video, brannigan never disappoints. Another loose laps, I'm weak at the knees!
  • + 4
 Funny how verybody is complaining about the song choice used in this (ridiculously good) vid... I think that this downtempo track choice complimented George's fluidity and steeze spot on.
  • + 5
 It the track where riding Atherton and Smith in "Follow Me"?
  • + 3
 I was thinking the same thing
  • + 3
 One of the tracks. They also ride Zoot Track and Dirt Farm.

 Could watch this 1000 times an not get bored/sick of it....so awesome!
  • + 4
 That was mighty damn fast! Why isn't that a world cup track?
  • + 11
 Probably because the whole fields times would be less than 2 seconds apart.

 also it's full of snow during the season

 This video is soo good, I really liked the filming technique and the flow. The soundtrack's not bad anyway, but could be something more intensive.

 god damn if your not schralping turns then you aren't going fast it seems these days

 Ruts on landings are my biggest fear whilst riding. Safe to say this trail would scare the bejeesus out of me if I rode it.

 Whats with people who ride Commencal? Theres not one that can't shred. 100% though, if I buy one, I won't ????.
  • + 1
 Those question marks were meant to be a laughing emoji by the way...
  • + 3
 I bought one and I'd love to be able to say I shred but I don't. Definitely can't blame the bike though, it does it's best to make me faster.
  • + 3
 I think Commencal have just done a really good job in sponsoring young rippers, because the edit after edit with guys riding Commencal all involve amazing riding. I'm sure you shred hard enough @metaam Razz
