 The riding made up for the intro!!!

 The lambo entrance really screams humility eh?

 Who cares? Most people would have one if they had the cash.

 @TannerValhouli: Someone in the Macaskill comments said something about how his riding is mind blowing yet unpretentious. This video is half of that statement.

 @brandaneisma: The overwhelming majority of people who can afford a Lambo don't have one. There are around 18M millionaires in the US alone, and Lamborghini sold 7,500 cars last year worldwide. So its more like only the smallest fraction of people who can afford them actually go out and do so.

 @sino428: okay okay fair enough. I was getting at the point that people love to hate on those who spend on exotic cars/bikes, but at the end of the day they are just people. Sure there are a few that are corrupt, but the vast majority are just like you and I.

 @TannerValhouli: bummer you guys did not enjoy me getting dropped off in a Lambo, I will go back to the same old scenic drone clips every video starts with. Hope you enjoyed the riding!

 @djbrandt: people seem to appreciate authenticity, so if you’re all about flashy cars then let it roll.

 @djbrandt: actually can you start all your edits with a dramatic clip of you putting your goggles on? That would be revolutionary.

 When you clowns get your own X Games RealMTB parts you can do your lame ass intros the way you want.

 @sino428: "In full-year 2020, Automobili Lamborghini delivered 7,430 cars worldwide, a decrease of only 9% compared to the sales record set in 2019."
They only sold "7,500" cars because that's all they made. Rest assured if they made more they'd have been sold fairly easily.
  • 2 0
 @cky78: even if they sold 20x more cars, it would still only a tiny fraction of those who could afford one actually buying them.
  • 1 0
 @sino428: Yeah probably... but the fact that ALL super/hyper cars sell out before they're even made suggests the market is pretty big... and could be bigger. Either way, your point of those buying them are "flashy" people, is valid.

 It’s not as bad as some others. A month or two ago when COVID was really smashing the UK, Matt Jones posted a video “HEY GUYS LOOK AT MY NEW LAMBORGHINI!” The lack of humility led to me hitting the unfollow button. Although tbh it had been coming for a while.

 @Afterschoolsports: Let me let you in on a little secret the bike industry doesn't want you to know about. You can rent a Lamborghini any time you want.

 Hey @djbrandt that was gnarly asf and rad asf. Don't listen to all these negative jerks p!ssing on your parade. You're a tank and probably a better rider than 99.99% of the folks on here.
Rad video and thanks for putting a smile on me and the boss' face Smile

 Only other edit that can compare to it was Brage. Both super creative and gnarly with some similar concepts. Can compare it to Cams also...couple of similar tricks in both but DJ added more and went bigger.
Brandon’s was dope, but was just kinda typical Brandon stuff. My podium would be Brage, DJ, Brandon in that order

 ya DJ! Always cool to see urban spots I have gone by and mentally pretended to do be unlocked!

 Pretty sure every kid that grew up in Boulder thinks about hitting the baseline handrail every time they drive past. Never imagined anyone would throw a 3 off the roof on a bike though!

 The surprising thing about getting towed into a jump by a truck or a sled is that you actually still get a really good workout!

 @djbrandt: love your edit man. thats just awesome if you own a lambo. it doesn’t bother me if every tom, dick, and harry own a honda element
  • 4 1
 I suspect Ethan Nell was involved inthat aspect. In Nell's podcast (i think with downtime) he talked about being into super cars. I think its a hilarious intro. How many chances as a mountain biker do you get to show off in the x games. have fun with it.

 I’m sorry, but in my opinion, this is the worst edit of the bunch. Still amazing.
  • 11 1
 @Unrealityshow: idk man this edit seems like a lot more went in to getting some super original and cool stuff than a few of the other edits. All the urban sends and the snow segment take this one to a level above some of the other clips that are just 50to01 knockoffs or slopestyle tricks on perfectly manicured jumps. This one and Brage’s are just raw af and represent “real” mtb imo

 This and brage stood out on the first watch but Brage takes it for me.

 @sidekicksjn: Brage's was super rad as well, but I hate(d) trying to ride skinnies so.... hahaha! both great vids, love the variety between them.

 @TannerValhouli: yo dude I really appreciate this and all the other dope comments, you guys keep me going and inspired! I’m so stoked to brage pull up as hard as he did and he fully deserves to be in one of those top spots! keep shredding
