 That dude is so thankful that a full face and goggles were part of the kit. Plausible deniability.

 This looks promising. I'd like to see more fast DH/trail riding in movies. Too many productions have perfect purpose built jump/slope style lines showcasing robot tricks. For me...I just can't relate to that.

 I'm with you. more movies like Gamble, please. I don't need to see another slopestyle movie, ever.

 I find the trail riding all looks the same. its the equivalent of if a ski movie was just filmed on groomed runs. I miss when the riders spent months building creative features and going big, all the videos on the same trails just looks mundane, feels like they are more focused on the landscape and location other than the occasional closeup of logos and expensive riding gear.

 @luckynugget: nah, that's a really poor analogy. it's more like, if more ski videos were more like most MTB videos, ski videos would all be 1080 tail grabs in the terrain park. that shit is boring. I don't care about riders building "features" and doing the same 9 tricks over and over. and over. and over. I don't need to see another no hander or can can, ever. At this point, if Brandon Semenuk is in a bike film, I just skip the movie entirely.

 So stoked to finally start seeing some strong female representation in the features. Will definitely be supporting this and more of these flicks that do the same!

 forgive for I don't live in the northern hemisphere and am not fully acquainted with the seasons but didn't spring already came and went?

 Nice work. Can't wait.


Couple of those shots with men/women got me thinking... powerhouse couples in MTB. Someone needs to do a video or a article or something on that.

Bryn atkinson/Jill Kitner used to be my instant winner. Probably still is but there's a lot of good ones now.
Brett Rheeder/Casey Brown
Kialani Hines/Bubba
Kyle and Rachel Strait
