Video: Straight Up Trail Annihilation at Skyline Park

by Trippin Fellaz  
Trippin' presents you with the Austrian pocket rocket, Manuel Gruber. This guy is loose, it wasn’t half an hour into filming before he tried rugby tackling his way through a tree trunk. Sam and Josh thought that the day over for the Gruber edit, luckily though Mani is made of the right stuff and brushed the bark off his kit and cracked on with what was certainly a mega day's filming. Leaving no turn un-railed, his speed and wicked style made it a pleasure for us to film this edit on the Skyline tracks of Queenstown New Zealand.

Manuel says: "I'm stoked to be on the Radon Magura Factory World cup team for 2015 along side Nick Beer. It's cool to be on a World cup team with factory support, it's also great having the knowledge of a well known rider like Nick. Hopefully I can improve my skills for the coming season and head on with results like the 10th I scored at the 2014 World cup round in Windham. Getting the chance to come to New Zealand during winter is perfect for training, thanks to the warm weather and amazing tracks I'm getting up to speed after having a long break due to a broken collarbone. Now I'm feeling strong and fit again, I can't wait for the first round of the UCI world cup in France."

 Love how DirtMag write about him being Australian Big Grin Looking forward to seeing another one of our folks hitting the World Cup this year, looks like he's quite able to handle himself. You know, when he's not busy smashing himself to pieces, what a crash that was...

 He just needs to learn left side whips. A few of those jumps were wasted with straight airs. Otherwise, good stuff.

 i have a question to anyone who knows. is the bikepark open in july? and also is gorge road open in july? going out there in the summer, wondering if its worth taking the bike? Big Grin

 The Gondala wont be open to bikes after 3 May. But you can do push runs if your keen.

Gorge Road should only be ridden with respect to the weather/ conditions at the time.
