MSS Bike Park - Trail Crew: Surprisingly, trails don't build themselves, or maintain for that matter, quite shocking right? It takes a lot of people to run a Bike Park and they are all important pieces to the puzzle, but the most important group of them all, always hidden in the shadows and never getting the credit they deserve is the Trail Crew. This is a day in their lives.

Must Read This Week

 The next time there's a poll 'best development in MTB?' If there was one I'd ✅ the box PINKBIKE. Free, easy to access content that's always inspiring, informative, challenging and regularly updated. With all the other sites that are nearly as good, I don't think we realise how lucky we are.
  • + 1
 Yep. PinkBike definitely brings it. Tons of content like movies, adventures, product, etc. that I wouldn't never see otherwise. Kudos to PinkBike.

The last champery videos do it for me !

Coincidentally I was there last week for the first time (Lac Blanc Station btw, it's in France not in Germany) and rode that.
Video doesn't do justice, as always... I rode probably half as fast and felt what you see in the video haha

 The douche-baggery goes two fold though. Sure, the guys standing on the trail should have moved over - but - if some guy rolls up on us and crashed through me on purpose, he's getting his jaw broken. He could have easily went around them instead of trying to squeeze through them. He's actually being more of a dick than they are with a move like that.

 Having rode that track, I remember looking at those rock gardens, utterly savage. Its the first stop on our road trip this summer, hope bike lasts. As a side the burgers at Lac Blanc Bike Park and general set up are top notch, and its roughly half way through france en route to the alps, excellent spot

 Bravo Pinkbike for posting the "Caribou Legs" video!
Powerful message and so worthwhile being shared widely.
  • - 1
 Very powerful message. It's a tragedy and we as a nation must stop it! Indigenous women and girls deserve the same respect and opportunities that their brothers have and their non-indigenous brothers and sisters have. We are one and must protect our family.

 On instagram PB had said that the New Hopkins film uses some of the longest cable cams they have ever seen... but opening shot is not a cable cam shot is it? If it is then Scott Secco must have gone out and bought a MUCH bigger reel of rope than he showed us in the second BTS video! He'd need about 1km of rope if he was doing the dual line set up for that shot!! Looks like a gimbal shot from a vehicle on a road to the side of the track.
  • + 5
 @gavlaa Yep, good eye! That was shot at about 135mm on a DJI Ronin out of the back of a truck.
  • + 1
 @scottsecco: I'm guessing you used a lav microphone for the audio to overlay and cut the truck noise? I like it. Good skills.
  • + 1
 @scottsecco: was wondering about that. Don't think you could even tension a line that long enough even if you had the line to rig. Was really impressed by the relatively simple cable cam setup though combined with the impressive results.
  • + 1
 @LittleDominic: You definitely couldn't pull it off with my cable cam setup! If you watch the behind the scenes on The Collective's movie Seasons they show that they actually used steel cable and a truck to tension one of their lines for a shot and that sucker must have been 500 feet. Pretty wild!

 Tall bikes... easily one of the best films I've seen in a long time.. the world sure could use a lot more individualism and creativity like that.

 Agreed. Tall bikes was spectacular! Well done Zenga Bros.

 Mike Hopkins - Flow state. Great video.
I didn't dare on the previous article but now I can't keep this for myself.

I can't be the only one watching with good sound, right? (Hearing the details)

So please someone explain me : what's that absolutely ridiculous sound I hear when he takes off (00:39 for example), as if someone swang a stick through the air?
Really? Does a bike make that sound?
  • + 0
 I think it's the tires pressing into the takeoff. You can reproduce the sound, just try to press really hard in your suspension when you are riding on the street for example. You will be noticing the sound the tires make. The harder the pressure gets, the louder this sound gets.
  • + 1
 The audio must have been a nightmare to do on this edit as he wouldn't have been able to use the audio from the cable shots as it would just be wind noise. It must have taken a lot of work to get good audio for the entire edit.
  • + 3
 the audio was basically all done in post from my understanding, so it's not going to be exactly what happened, I agree that it does not make that sound normally

 The Ramp II is a master piece

 Eddie Masters... first Hardline, then this? There is nothing that guy won't do! Did you see him make that 5th corner? In. Sane.
