Any mountain bike racer will tell you that they get their kicks from competing. The suspense before, the rush of adrenaline during and the relief at the finish. Over the years Bas has developed a routine, the ultimate unwind from the racing season turning his goals from winning to enjoying the simplicities of riding his bike with good company. Bas shows us the flip side of his career as a professional mountain biker.

Featuring: Bas van Steenbergen, Tom van Steenbergen, McKay Vezina, Eliot Jackson, Ryan Howard, Dylan Dunkerton, Brendan Howey, Noah Brousseau, Anthony Evans and Evan Guthrie.

Music: Wand, CunninLynguists, Island Boy, Wunder Wunder and Saib.

 It used to be Tom, Tom, Tom, but looks like Bas is catching up (and maybe more)?! Don't want the bros to start fighting over xmas break.... Both awesome riders!

 Plenty of room for both of them to be total bosses. And they both have their niche too.

 Colada, did you even see unReal?! Tom absolutely destroyed that film!
  • + 11
 Didn't wanna sound negative, but I guess I did... Just meant that Tom used to be more in the news, and now the bros are more on par. Again, both great riders! Yep, I have unreal at home, great footage!

 Remy Metailler and Bas in one edit would be a dream. Anyways... Im sitting here now. Im out. This movie was killer

 Agreed!! And it was for freeeeee!

 Bas is a pure technician, it's pretty bad ass when you can make what essentially is a 15 minute highlight reel... The manual combinations are always amazing, bike handling skills for days...
  • + 19
 I'm calling Transition because my TR 500 does not do anything like that...Wink
  • + 18
 Nailed that vibe. It was almost surreal.
  • + 5
 That was like a commercial for hippies that are really good at biking. Maybe they laid off the chron, and realized their full potential, I don't know.
  • + 4
 Or maybe they smoked even more and got in the zone and had everything dialed first run, you never know.
  • + 2
 The first time I wacthed a Bas' video was this one: www.pinkbike.com/video/215373 ...and I though it was brutal... What I have to say is that it has been like this since the first. Bas (and Tom) are a great inspiration for me. Keep shredding

 oh man the same for me!!!! This video still remains one of my favorite ever !! taht dh section after the lunch !!! Smile Smile Bas for President

 When you are Bas and from the Netherlands and your backname is translated from Dutch "RockMountain" it's no accident you can shred like he does! Amazing vid! Makes me proud to be a trainer on the track where he started his bmx career..

 @supatramp The second SoCal trail was suicide. There was a small segment before that of riding over rocks and through trees that I don't recognize. Do you know what that one is? All the others including the last I have ridden ;-)
