 He is a living Legend. I would die happy just to do 1% of what he is doing.

 He's quite an ambassador for propain (and associated accessories).

 100%, I hope Propain appreciate that and understand that it's not alway about milliseconds on the racetrack.

 I think this is the first time I’ve actually looked up a bike companies website after watching a shreddit. I think the short travel lighter jib bike is quite appealing. My Commencal Meta TR coil mullet is fun but the 38 lb weight definitely makes jibby stuff harder.

 @Lumenous1: yeah, the Hugene is pretty dang light, looks great, and is sensibly priced. I'd like to try one out sometime, but I don't think they sell to US customers.

 @BobbyHillbomb: Actually they do sell them in the US. I have a Hugene. The US headquarters is in Vancouver, Washigton. They have demo program too...
The bike is pretty damn capable on all things as well... wish I could ride it like Phil does!

 Fugging good sheet, Philios' riding is awesome to watch . Greek trails look good and I doubt he's missing English weather, much.

 A true talent on a mountain bike and I think the most under-rated rider out there! This is an awesome edit! Top man Phil Bey!

 Very good ,now cut the crap and start focusing on the DH World Series ,just let the Fun thing for 2 years and start to really race ,cause maybe you will be making a lot of hands scratching their heads. Now in a real mode ,what a brilliant fun ride ,but serious just give your self 2 years of real racing time ,to see what it could be (forget the fun :-))) ),and then yes be your self again :-)))),if you could

 Making Alexander the Great proud.

1:35 was my fav move because my simple brain can't comprehend that finishing clip.

Was the voice over at the beginning that charlatan Deepak Chopra?
