bigquotesMy home has always been in Ontario. I wanted to tell the story of where I live and where i come from, my whole family lives within 50km of each other in southern Ontario. My cousins let me use their farm land to build the course. We hoped the dirt was going to be good, but as soon as we dug into the ground we know it was gold and the best part is it's only 4kms from my house. I know that Ontario is not ideal for mountain biking, but with a little work I feel it can be, and that's what I wanted to show. For me, This is Home - Brett Rheeder




This Is Home with Brett Rheeder

 Rheeder doesn't put out as many videos as others but when he does, they're bangers! LOVE IT!

 serious contender for VOM !

 It is unfortunate to see all these negative comments comparing Brett to Brandon in this video. The whole point of this video is about how after travelling around the world and through all the highs/lows of this season, Brett still finds himself back at home; a place where he can escape from the Semenuk vs. Rheeder rivalry and all the pressure of contests. I don't see the need to bring negative comments (despite being marginally correct) to a post focused on the roots of what mountain biking is to all of us; being on your bike and having fun. Awesome job to Brett and Harrison, one of the most inspiring videos I've ever watched on Pinkbike.

 2:53 is that a 360-bar to downside whip?? Looked radical.
  • + 0
 He's out of the traditional MTB element back in Ontario but a true rider only needs his bikes, friends/family, good dirt, and a TACOMA!

Hey Rheeder while you're out east you should get together with MacDuff and make a proper odd couple video.

 Triptex ,odd couple is a bmx rider and a mountain biker. Macduff and Rheeder both ride mountain bikes

 @todayisthegreatest - That awkward moment when I'm linked to a video I've commented on. Blank Stare

 There were too many epic photos. I feel like I should be shot for scrolling through without admiring all of them... after that video though, I felt complete... like a complete idiot for saying he was nothing special after seeing my first edit of him. I love where slopestyle mountain biking has ended up, even if its moved away from the send-it-fuck-it gnarly balls roots. That right 180 on to revert fast plant left 360 out was just magical.

 Well that was all kinds of awesome.

 I decided to look at all the pictures first to get hyped. It definitely got me hyped. Then the video was hhooooooohhhh, yes bbbbbangers and creamed

 "Riding is fun, no matter where you are"

Best inspirational quote of 2015 right there
  • + 3
 "Riding is fun no matter where you are... espcially when you're good enough to need/get to build your own Joyride course in your backyard!"

Pretty much a must do these days, I guess, if you wanna podium slopestyle. The level of talent is just mind blowing now - and especially with Rheeder and Semenuk.

 If all there had been was the intro from this video. I'd still have been totally stoked. What we get to see here on Pinkbike for free is absolutely insane!
  • + 19
 Brett's going to need a lot of potatoes to make enough mash for all those bangers! Awesome video!

 10/10 would hang out with

 Something is wrong with my screen.... There are PODs everywere!!!

 Brett Rheeder has the sickest style out. Everything he does is so smooth and clinical it's as if he wrote the textbook on MTB slopestyle.

 Gonna have to disagree - Ryan Howard has the best style in slopestyle. Brett has more tricks though, his style is nice too and he seems like an awesome dude all round. Love his instagram
  • + 15
 I love you Brett Rheeder!!!
  • + 8
 Good on ya Brett. Ive lived in Kelowna BC for 16 yrs now but STILL fondly remember Ontario riding. Used o bring my bike back regularly on trips just to experience that amazing soil and flowing, fast trails. They may be xc trails but they're fun and fast... Still go back every year to see the family and the lakes to do some fishing. Its a beautiful place.

 Using a saint derailleur as a chain tensioner cuz sponsors.

 Shimano has a media team?!? If the edits continue in this quality, Sram better watch out..
  • + 5
 First minute I was like.... man... not another one of these B.S. edits that are 97% fluff.... then BOOM. Dope edit to finish it out. I could do without the barf inducing intro but I'll put up with that to watch Rheeder kill it any time.
  • + 5
 I can relate. I live in Oklahoma. I drive a Tacoma. I use shimano brakes. I can ride like him. Okay I lied on the last part... but just because you don't have mountains, doesn't mean you can't fall in love with mountains biking. Loved this video...
  • + 7
 Rheeder is an amazing rider! He makes everything look so effortless! Keep up the bad ass riding tup
  • + 5
 Forget all the technicalities, all the gritty details, all of the stupid comparisons...this video just made me feel good, so good on you Brett.

 Perfecttttt video man! reminded me of a really well thought out and put together film segment, cheers guys you smashed it!
  • + 7
 Very well filmed, produced and edited! Sick riding and construction!

 I think the video is super awesome but Robb Thompson needs some big props for the incredible photo's, Great tones, atmosphere and action all rolled into one. fantastic work.
  • + 5
 Pure awesome. It's true, no matter where you go and how awesome the terrain and trails are, being at home on your local trails can't be beat.
  • + 5
 That video is a great way to kick off a Monday morning! Now if I could only go and ride instead of heading to the office...

 Sick jumps with Brett riding them, it can't get much better!!
  • + 1
 So much respect for Harrison Mendel, he's been pumping out amazing videos one after another and they just keep getting better and better!!! This also goes for Brett as his riding is still progressing and finding the limits of the sport.
  • + 5
 Oh my god the transition at 3:01. Butter.
  • + 3
 That moment when you realize 95% of us would be very satisfied if we could run that whole course with just straight airs and small tables without crashing...
  • + 2
 This vid is amazing, Rheeder consistently raises the bar. Ontario truly does have lots of potenetial, just not much potential energy.
