Bikepacking in Finland Looks Amazing in ‘Not Far From Home II’ - Video
@ianswilson815: The answer to your question, plain and simple, is: Absolutely. It does take away. Probably a lot. Now, was the objective of the trip to live adventure to its fullest or to make an attempt at documenting it? I believe it was the latter. There is certainly no way to enjoy a trip like this to its fullest when you are filming it. Specially something that results in this level of quality. But again, they are different things and pose different challenges. If you've ever raced downhill you know that the race run is not necessarily as pleasant as just riding down the mountain in a leisurely way. But it presents a different challenge. We all have different things that drive us. I know, living in Chicago right now, filming stuff gets me motivated to actually go out and ride. You'll find that at least 50% of what makes people good at something is just their dedication to go out there and do it. Half of what makes this short great is just the fact that somebody took the time to properly document what a trip like this feels like. My two cents of course, someone else can have a very different point of view.

Bikepacking in Finland Looks Amazing in ‘Not Far From Home II’ - Video
From my own experience I can tell you it probably takes twice the amount of time it would have taken if you just rode. I shoot and ride everything myself. I fairly recently did a short involving me getting on a train for 30 minutes, then a bus for 45 minutes to get out and ride in the snow (https://www.pinkbike.com/video/467503/). Most shots are easy enough that can be done on the down time, but certainly shots of riding may take several takes and going back to do a few times over. Your question, though, is probably more in terms of "is it worth it?". And the answer is obviously "yes" if someone took the time to put it together. One could very easily ask, how much does it take to ride that vs. just driving it? A lot more certainly, but I don't see how that matters if you love riding. For some people it's certainly as interesting to film rides as it is to ride. Just another form of self expression.

POV: Rémy Métailler's Winning Run - Taxco Urban Downhill
We sure as hell get some bad rep. I grew up in Mexico looking at Bike mag and thought the US had the most awesome singletrack. Now that I've been in the states for four years, I realize how good I had it back home with 3000 vertical feet of trails right out my backdoor. Nowadays, I'm almost scared of going back home from what I see in the news, even though its only been a few years since I've left. Certainly crazy how the media can skew your perception of a place :(

What Did The Riders Think? - Just The Tip: Red Bull Rampage 2017
Sorge is like the Mayweather of Rampage. He wins, but it kind of doesn't feel like it. He makes all the right moves and scores in the right places though. I still think its more exciting to watch some of the other riders throw down. Hopefully they stay motivated and we don't get a bunch of Sorge-like runs next year. Otherwise, glad everyone was safe, pretty nerve racking to watch these events.

Watch the Winning Run: Red Bull Rampage 2017 - Video
@rrsport: Agreed, I hardly enjoy Sorge's winning runs, but the dude is a monster. My money is always on Zink. He's the one that gets everyobody nervous. His run was an absolute winner. Regardless, I'm glad they all made it down in one piece.
