Sam Pilgrim: The Fort - Video

by Sam Pilgrim  

bigquotesSo me and Tom Cardy went and explored an abandoned WW2 fort in Harwich, UK, and thought that it would be fun to ride our bikes there. It actually turned out to be pretty difficult to find rideable features and we had to go back twice to get enough footage for this edit. It was definitely more of a challenge than we thought but that made it more fun in the end! I hope you enjoy it! - Sam Pilgrim

 Nice to see something different from an interesting location.Sweet!.

BTW - did I spy the Marzocchi air shock? Would be interested to hear how that is working out. There's hardly anything on the internet about it sadly and looking at what to pair with my 350NCRs at the moment.

 Well i like the rear shock, i actually don't know to much about suspension but it does feel good! And you can lock it out for up hill and stuff, not that i ever ride up hill haha

 I have that shock, the 053, after a year of use it's got horrendous cavitation,so I would advise it

 @sampilgrim: Nothing worse hey bro....but like someone just said....great to see you pulling off something totally different. I don't think i've seen you ride your bike unless your sending some huge tricks...So...awesome bro. Filming is no easy task, so, great work and keep them coming.....If your using FCPX, try and match the drone colours with the camera on the ground footage, it'll tie in nicely...
Keep it up !

 Woo, people having fun on a bike! Exactly what riding is about, good to see something other than the usual 'bro skids' around berms and pro-riders trying to make 29rs NOT look awkward in a desperate marketing grab.

 Love seeing non-trial discipline riders find a way to make riding a zone like this look rad. Totally different approach to all the features than a macaskill or a Akrigg and super fun to watch.

 This is something I´ve always wanted, to do. I bet we all have some locations we would to ride and shoot or film, in. It´s great to see him getting out there and doing it!!! I always have quite a few in my mind, always lacking time, people to ride with or skills...mostly ; )

 That fort makes me think to the fort in Far cry 3 (game) where you have to blow up the phone antenna. Lots of similarities !

Great riding as always sam!
