 It's soooooo rad, refreshing and insightful. More of this human side of things, you can appreciate how much most of the pro's live an healthy and wealthy life, inside out. I mean I've seen many young talent having a great life from the start it seems.. and you can tell that location is a good part in their success mixed with a great upbringing / family, it's nice to seeSmile

 What I like is that there is more footage of Rob Warner riding now, than during his racing career.

 I love the driving sections in this video:

"We're going to visit Finn Illes in Whistler" said whilst leaving Whistler heading South.

"We're going axe throwing in Whistler" said whilst driving South through Squamish.

 When talking with Jack, Rob says that "you could be the best mountain bike rider on the planet, but if you haven't got a head for it you've got no chance." RATBOY came to mind immediately, insanely talented but doesn't have the racer mentality, which I respect. Just what came to mind....

 Yeah he only won the World Cup overall and would have won the World Champs if he’d not sent to flat and broken his rat paw.... ????

 I wonder if he's talking about himself a bit? Jack shreds hard on a bike too, used to place high or win all the local races, and probably where Finn got a lot of his speed riding together as kids. But Jack he never made that push in to pro racing, maybe because he didn't have the head for it?

 @Tatham83: That's the point, maybe he got bored being so good and now just rides for himself. Which, once again, I totally respect. Heck, that's why I ride too Smile

 When Rob failed his final double axe throw I laughed harder than I have laughed in months. This was great. Truly a series I would like to see more of.

 There's one downtown at a bar here in Northern Idaho! You're not supposed to be totally drunk when you do it, but the bar tenders are usually so smashed themselves to notice...

 Ya they must have them in the boondocks. I was having a blast in Central Park NYC but we all know that is not a good place for it. I have been to many target ranges of all kinds and there is something about sticking a hatchet, better a tomahawk!

 Would like to see them open in Australia as well.

 Finn will go the distance for sure, another member of the new young gun brigade.

 What trail in squamish did they ride ?
  • + 2
 I think was all filmed on Another Man's Gold, a short flow trail that drops down from where they parked (at the bottom of Half Nelson).

 Should the series be renamed to Rob meets RedBull athletes?
