Connor Fearon: "I want people to be stoked and go ride after this edit."

I teamed up with one of the fastest up and comer World Cup racers of 2014, Connor Fearon, to make this edit. We basically went back to the roots of MTB video to show good times on a bike in this short edit.

 kona needs a world cup racer.

 Connor is there World Cup racer.... And he's being doing well. Crackin the top 20's and always progressing. He had one of the fastest time in the tech section at fort bill
  • + 11
 yeah connor has been going well. He takes some good lines too, he was taking some lines I didn't see anyone else take at the wc rounds and they definitely looked quicker. great racer hopefully he'll be cracking that podium soon.
  • + 35
 My name is also trey, and in also stoked
  • + 13
 I would probably pass out from the g forces if I cornered that hard. Go team Adelaide downhill!!!!

 @AllMountain sorry to here that... We can't all be perfect tbough

 Walked passed Connor in the pits at Fort Bill and said "Good luck for today Connor, have a good run mate". He looked back and smiled at me with an element of surprise. As if he didn't expect anyone in the UK to even know his name. The dude can rip, he's humble and he's definitely no big headed, "I'm awesome and you lot should all know who I am" kind of guy. All round nice fella!

 This is the place where I ride ! Thought I was fast...Now I think I'm gay. Fuck!
  • + 2
 I know that feeling, watching him smash 24 to bits really is something.
  • + 8
 Today reading the yeti comments about not needing dh bikes anymore made me sad and start to wonder if they were right, if you want to do that on an enduro go right ahead! But I wouldn't try this on anything but my 8 inch beast of a downhill rig! There is hope haha
  • + 11
 Dam it, its 9:00 PM and I don't have lights so I cant ride this sucks I'm so pumped to go ride
  • + 8
 Fuck the light and just let your eyes adjust lol
  • + 14
 haha, I gotta fix my car before i can go ride lol this video has me stoked to fix my car
  • + 3
 Went on my first night ride a few nights ago, so much fun!

Two $30 solarstorm x2 (bar + helmet mounted) was more than enough light and batteries lasted two hours.

Watched Fearon beat Brosnan at the state champs earlier this year, so fast and smooth, great talent! Adelaide sure seems to breed excellent riders like these guys and bmx rider Sam Willoughby...wish some of it would rub off on me ;-)
  • + 1
 Few bar lights at a few angles and a few head lights and you can ride dh all night long. Well you know after you spend a tonne of chase on like 6 lights haha.
  • + 3
 Your way to stoked tray
  • + 1
 No such thing
  • + 10
 One of my favorite up and comers in the WC seen. Super chill and humble. Go Connah!
  • + 6
 Start at 1:16, watch him absolutely smash that berm, then watch the slo mo when you see how much extra travel he has left in that rear suspension! Holy shit, how much harder can this guy hit to need such stiff suspension!
  • + 4
 Looks like he used most of it on that last landing...
  • + 4
 To quote Curtis Robinson, "If you build a berm, I will destroy it"

Holy f*ck did he nail that second one.
  • + 6
 That was sick, i cant help feeling bad for those wheels though thats such an abusive relationship...
  • + 5
 HO-LEE-SCHIIIIITTTTTT some of those gap lines he does are SO fast and huge, oh my god!!!
  • + 3
 kona likes those mad men. aggy is one of the wildest riders ever to shred the planet and fearon's riding in this edit was just effortless looking. gotta love kona's team choices
  • + 6
 Saw him at Bromont yesterday filming this!
  • + 7
 HOLY.....KONA FEARON!

 我有这条裤子,还差一件衣服!

 I can't be the only one who replayed 0:57 at least 5 times
  • + 4
 Actually :49 - :53 kinda gave me goosebumpies
  • + 1
 He stuck it in a little bit, and then after that was all set, stuck it in deeper.
  • + 3
 This guy is gonna get a World Cup win soon! I imagine Connor v Rayboy v Brosnan in the a few years time.. And that's Brendog's and Connor's edit with them both on flats
  • + 5
 Awesome riding. That whip at the end...
  • + 3
 Awesome. He is a standout on the WC scene, big things to come in a few seasons!
  • + 0
 Awesome. The effects and production make it seem like a clip out of a hollywood movie or something. If you cut back on the slow-mo (although the rear-view of that berm where the wheel locked up was super cool) it would've been better.
  • + 1
 I agree, most vids need to bin most of the slow-mo.
  • + 1
 Yes, I'm ready to ride! Connor has a bright future ahead of him and I can't wait to see more. -should be a good supplement for the lack of Danny Hart edits, haha!
  • + 2
 gettin' wild! alittle too much Slo-Mo for my liking. But still a good edit.
  • + 3
 Awww Yissss Mutha Fuckin Bikes

 Man that was awesome, when he hit the been I thought he smashed his wheel to bits, but it was just flex and mind bending speed!
  • + 2
