 I'd argue one of the best videos posted ever... Great vision. Great execution. Unique. Congrats on thinking outside the box and creating a true MOMENT.

 Everyone takes notes . Docile music , not to loud . Tire hub noises amazing flow . THIS IS how a video is to be shot

 A jump vid with no tailwhips, backflips, supermans & every other combination of annoyingness... bliss.

Going through a set of trails with style & flow is what its all about

 Trails flow > circus spins every time for me. The former wow people and make contests a marketable product etc, but flow just wins every time to watch for me.

 I like the combination of both, which was truly captured in this vid. A few subtle trails tricks, a dumped three for good measure, but everything felt like it fit. Like it had a purpose, and a reason for being in the video

 After watching this weeks "Movies for Your Monday" BMX vids, I was lamenting how much cooler and more stylish BMX vids are than MTB. I can now take that back. Sick style and love the lazy old school toboggans!

 A dirt jumper is debatably not an mtb. A bike with 90-100mm, single speed, single brake, and at most 2" of seat post isn't the best choice to tackle a full mountain.

 I would really like Rupert Walker to read this comment, i really appreciate your work. usually you do great collaborations with great riders and this video is no exception. I'm European and never hear of Daniel before and i'm amazed by his flow (also the trails).
This is the type of video that i really like, and could watch them for hours, which leads me to my point, i rather watch a video like this but a little bit longer, or let's say a video of this quality (riding and videography) with at least 8-10 minutes. I understand that it is a lot of work, but i think people en general would like that. I'm not saying that i need to see sick tricks and stuff.. Riders like Daniel represent a small number of people who can amaze viewers just rolling through these amazing jumps.
(btw this is my first comment in years and i've been visiting this website in a long long time)
Cheers everyone!

 As a trials rider, i find jump videos intolerable usually, but this, this is what I call style, nothing but instrumental and a hub noise with no 'fashion' tricks, just flow and huge air. 5*

 Killin' it Roop! Let the riding speak for itself- great track choice and no cliche intro. Your skills really let Dan's talent shine.

 I was hoping to load up the truck, not pack a suitcase. I am a victim of false advertising.

 Rup x Daniel is best video to grace pinkbike this year. jesus. those jumps are looking dialed as fuck..
  • + 3
 Soooo good! First I thought the track choice was not the best but after 5th watch it's brilliant too! Less tricks, more steeze, and the crowd loves it!! Fuck yeaaah
  • + 2
 Like poetry in motion!
Really nice place you got built there, perfect balance of plantlife and wildlife.I bet the place must have a real nice ambient sound & feeling.
Great filming btw.

 This dude dopes up with nothing but the purest strain of flow. Forget the amped out red bull hypezoned triple tail whips for a sec and just admire excellent, precise, big nasty flow! hell yea dude

A: Yup

 Nice jumps by the way, and the riding was direct from heaven. Nice work all round. He needs to cut an inch off both ends of his bar mind you.

 Trail pornnnn!!!

 basically average looking jumps if you google PA trails, catty or heathens trails. above average for mtb indeed and i enjoy the flowy riding of this vid.
  • + 5
 I agree with your but I read an interview with this guy and he pretty much built the place on his own and I think it's all been pretty recent. Those trails you mentioned have been around for years and years and obviously all have super rad groups of people taking care of them.

 WHERE did they find so MUCH DIRT ??
