 I had to pause at the 1:19 mark just to say that the intro gave me goosebumps. #longlivechainsaw

 It's just a pleasure to see how strong the mountainbike-community is, especially on that professional level.
You can really tell, that Stevie has lived a rich life, with so many awesome people caring a great deal about his passing.
One can only hope to make such an impact in a lifetime as Stevie did in only 26 short years.
And that Superman by Lacondeguy at 4:18 was from a different world in a galaxy far far away. Soooo sick.

 At 8:54 during the group photo, is aggy next to Stevie's mom? I hope so, she had a big smile on her face.
  • 4 0
 @FindDigRideRepeat: No, that's not Stevie's mother. Maybe Aggy's?

These lads embody all that is freeride, would love the chance to attend one of the Fest sessions. Inspirational.

 @loopie: spot on loops. The lads in fest provide the most entertaining footage in mountain biking, and continue to share the FUNdamnetal reason as to what everyone on a bike rides for. And all those races and slope style events, great as they are, still don't match the unselfish fun of the fest series. Cheers to Stevie thanks to PB et al. For sharing this.

 So close to the best for sure! These guys are doing something really cool with Fest Series, great vibe. If they swapped out the energy drink sponsor for something more inspiring for kids then it would be THE Best, period. "The world needs more Fest Series"
  • 3 0
 @RollinFoSho: as much as I agree with you- I hare energy drinks and feel that there should be a age minimum to drink them- the fest series is ahead of the curve in terms of sports entertainment. The fact that they have shunned the typical competition element one should associate with showcasing this kind of talent, goes agaisnt the grain. I'm sure more than one sponsor has shyed away from fest specifically because they can't identify a "winner". Most advert douchebags have "boxes to check" in terms of where they decide to put their sponsorship money, and this concept alludes them. For now. The vision to have a "celebration of mtn biking" where riders just chill and shred and have fun, reminds me of the old days of surfing, where it was focused on the, as I've said before, FUNdamentals.
But yeah, they likely need the MONSTER dollars, but that drink is f*cking shit, and should be avoided.

 I have been blown away (but not surprised), by the way the whole MTB community of all ages, abilities, and disciplines have paid tribute to a lost friend. I was at Fort William watching the World Cup, and the way everyone came together and respected a fallen hero was something else. We should be proud to call ourselves mountain bikers, I know I am!

 So that F'ing drone that was buzzing above our heads the entire day at Aggy's Reunion was worth it I guess hahaha. Great vid!

 Fuck me Freddy, best video of all time... There're 3 riders I can even start to try defying- Aggy, Lacon and Semenuk, I'd love to watch all of them in this edit, but the 2 of them starring in this masterpiece is enough... This flair from Reynolds and the cork 7 from Lunn are insane, just like the whole clip... OK, time for repeat...

 Big three Slope riders; Semenuk, Rheeder and Rogatkin.
Big three Fest riders; Aggy, Lacon and Sorge.
Where was Sorge?
  • 2 1
 @SithBike: I strongly disagree, Semenuk, Lacon and Aggy have something unique in their riding skills, something hard to describe, something given not learnt.
I respect the skill of Sorge and the variety of ticks of Rheeder and Rogatkin, but this is something they can never even touch. Watching Sorge nad Rheeder riding puts a smile on my face, but watching those 3 mentioned above just gives me thrills, puts me deep in the seat looking for a seatbelt, terryfied of what I'm seeing in the screen...

Watching Rogatkin ride justy makes me sick and hurts my eyes...

 Not trying to be a dick but Kelly died this year too and he was a freerider, would've thought they'd have done more for him too
  • 8 1
 You have a point but Steve Smith was the best Downhiller Canada has ever had and this event was in Kamloops, one of the birthplaces of global Freeride. Mcgarry didn't die because of riding, he likely died because of a Cardiac problem that he wouldn't have known he had, likely SVT or a PFO. I think many riders had a glimpse into the dangers of our sport because of such an iconic rider dying during training. Everyone knows it could happen to them and choose to say F++k You to the devil.They can only do so much. Respect to McGarry and I am sure he was part of the festivities.
  • 4 1
 @mastadon: Stevie didn't die because of biking either though did he, at least Mountain Biking. Wasn't it Motocross? I see the points of both vnimal and mastadon... Awesome tribute to Stevie by everyone there for sure. I guess it was a "Canadian tribute/home soil" that the international riders were welcomed into. Regardless - awesome to see such riding, moving tribute to Stevie, and I don't think a one of the riders there didn't at some moment go "damn I wish McGazza was here".
Well done all - congrats.

 @kgbdhbiker: is this the wrong place to say that Prince also died this year, but didn't get any airtime?
forgive me, i couldn't resist

 @VNIMAL Aggy Fest also took place on the same day/weekend as the official Steve Smith memorial in Nanaimo, BC (Stevie's hometown) and I'm sure a bunch of those riders would have really wanted to be there. Aggy mentions that quickly in the beginning of the video.

 Haven't seen Lunn ride much in recent years but holy stuff he has still got it. Gotta hand it to Alex Pro for his very stylish riding as well after his hiccoughs, glad to see such a maniacal rider back on the scene. B.C riding skill is so off the scale it makes my head spin. how do these guys do it? Flares on a big bike?
