Hey follow my line!! Ehhh fuck no!!
(Jan 11, 2017 at 14:46)
Some filthy techno for the next edit would be banging!
(Jan 11, 2017 at 13:33)
Obviously I knew they do a lot of takes, but when you watch videos I always imagine they are just riding along, that's the funnest part of the illusion, like you could just ride down the hillside pulling moves like this.

At the end, after he's tried them time after time I bet he can ride those lines pretty well... he does have the chops and balls to do so. I'd love to see a raw RAW film of what he's capable of doing - guess what I mean is where is *his* level of "mediocrity" (i.e. his "averageness")...

This video was super fun. It is really fascinating to see the progression of the trial run. Plus the laugh of Chris after barely missing a injury is exuberating.

Chris is a bloody legend. I love these videos that show that the pros are human after all. Gives all us Hacks the inspiration to keep pushing the our own boundaries. If you don't succeed, try and try again.

These fails are great, but they still don't do justice to the difficulty of the lines. To clean those lines with that kind of flow takes perfect tire and pedal placement, ie. years of practice as a trials rider and sessioning the same line for ages.

I wonder how often he is swapping out forks on his bikes given the number of bails on some of the difficult and tricky stunts he attempts. Hello rock meet fork stanchion. Okay, Fox, I think I need another fork, this one is toast.
(Jan 12, 2017 at 22:37)
Reminds me of Jamie Nicoll's stanchion during Trans BC Enduro. It's good to have sponsors.
(Jan 12, 2017 at 2:05)
I'll echo my previous comment on the previous article: THIS is what free ride should be all about. I mean the way he works to pull of those transitions (i.e. the manual on the rock + drop off) on whatever *natural* obstacle he finds is incredible: just look at that nose press into that tight switchback (0:32).
And yeah - bummer that her hurt himself again... here are my vibes to a speedy and full recovery Chris!!
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:27)
He's a case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, put him on a bike and he goes wild.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 13:24)
Watching this makes you appreciate the clean edit so much more. Practice makes perfect for Akrigg. Practice makes practice makes practice for me.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 14:52)
Get better soon ,well down to earth rider ,must be hours and hours practice for years and years and masses of Talent ,one of the best ,and I love the Mongoose .Peachy.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:50)
That's some insane talent and skill from all three of them to pull that off. Went back for a second watch
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:58)
So you ARE human after all!
(Jan 12, 2017 at 0:44)
Even watching his crash edits and hearing him talking makes me want to get out and ride. For me he is the most inspiring rider. Ever.
(Jan 13, 2017 at 18:31)
What is it with these Scottsmen and all their shenanigans on bicycles? Is the beer, sheep or cold weather? Seriously what's going on across the pond and how do they churn out such hard core riders?
(Jan 11, 2017 at 13:27)
friggin love Chris Akrigg!!!!
(Jan 11, 2017 at 22:00)
Hate being that geeky commenter but Chris, thank f*ck for guys like you. Heal up quick and give us a trials edit
(Jan 12, 2017 at 8:21)
Excellent. Get well soon Chris you crazy diamond.
(Jan 13, 2017 at 1:56)
Jeez - love that epic quote!
(Jan 12, 2017 at 10:56)
Chris is an artist. Love this guy. It is not all about racing or dropping of the rampage course.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 13:17)
This guy is absolutely incredible on bike.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:09)
thanks, this made my day!
(Jan 12, 2017 at 9:14)
Possibly the only pro that could make me want to buy a Mongoose
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:34)
Wow. Even heroes fall. They just get back up and kick ass!
(Jan 11, 2017 at 15:58)
I really can't get over how much I like the look of his bike. It looks really really good.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 14:46)
Like I really like this video like... like once its like been heard it can not like be unheard
(Jan 12, 2017 at 12:10)
His anger when he crashes reminds me of me
(Jan 11, 2017 at 20:00)
Chris has turned himself into a legend! I love it!
(Jan 12, 2017 at 12:21)
Can't wait. Gotta git that rock bruh. So doable. You totally had it!
(Jan 11, 2017 at 15:34)
Love this guy! So Sick!
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:20)
True RockHopper...dope trail blazing style
(Jan 12, 2017 at 0:51)
2:28, how is that even remotely possible?
(Jan 12, 2017 at 1:07)
It kind of bursts a magic bubble created by the edit when I see him fall.
(Jan 13, 2017 at 2:10)
You wonder if a bike's a bike when you see this guy riding Mongoose, but Mongoose has really turned it around as well. I guess you have to judge it on a bike by bike basis like you'd expect.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:14)
tenacious rider for sure.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 13:40)
Keeping it real
(Jan 12, 2017 at 11:57)
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Jan 11, 2017 at 12:36)
I just like trails where you can flow with speed and hit jumps. But everyones different.
(Jan 11, 2017 at 15:05)
cool video, but the music is shit
