In between university classes, Spencer Wight has been logging some serious air miles (at least before the snow arrived). He was kind enough to get in front of my lens knowing I had never filmed a rider other than myself before!

 Glad to see he is carrying a waterbottle with him - during longer flights it´s easy to dehydrate!

 Yes boys! Spencer crushing it on the bike, and Max- killing it behind the lens. Making me all excited for spring to hit

 Thanks Peter! Excited you liked it! Can't wait for spring riding conditions as well.

 I felt so inspired after watching that. The skills, the camera work, and the trail were so face melting. Huge props to the builders too.

 @SnowshoeRider4Life: Basically.
If it wasn't for jord this edit would consist of a few trail sections.

 @SnowshoeRider4Life: henceforth must it be dubbed EAF?

 @GnarAZ: I like it! EAF2 coming your way soon

 This is why we have Friday Fails. He made that road gap look so easy.

 That road gap was so smooth. Looks like he could have done it on a fully rigid bike. Great video.

 He sent it PRIMO perfect

 DH bikes are fun but seem completely unnecessary after watching this and seeing what a capable rider on a trail bike can do. That road gap on a single crown is ridonculous! Props to the rider and the large sack he has to fly with!

 in reality it's not. Travel on one off big hits isn't everything. Guys were going this big on 160-170mm Kona Stinkys back in the day with shittier shocks and more weight. the modern trail bike has way better progressive linkages, and way better suspension than the old days.

 @SnowshoeRider4Life: trail bikes are also built to be light weight and not like a brick shithouse so there is that..
  • + 1
 Would not call a 170/160mm enduro race bike a trail bike. The Meta 29 weighs about 16kgs with pedals. Its a pretty heavy duty bike made to go down.

 @zyoungson: i mean look at what Bourdo was doing in NWD 9 on the 160mm Intense SS.

 I counted at least 6 occasions I would have crashed needing medical assistance.....sickly fast over the greasy stuff...

 Saw the opening shots and thought, "This looks familiar..." Sick video Max, never realized you were a talented videographer too.

 @swight95: Thanks but I am very happy with my current bike. For me to consider a Commencal they would have to evolve their geometry further.
