 Full face helmet for safety, if you have ever run face first into a tree you will know how little a skid lid actually works (I know from experience) and double crown forks for pure baller status, same reason I see kids hitting DJs on fully's with 888's on the front...Obviously the guy DH's a lot (hence the race number on his forks) so why not just use the bike and gear you already have instead of getting crappier stuff just to make a video? Common sense children...This is one of the better V.O.D's I have seen the editing and effects are beautiful, the song its set to fits the flow and speed of the video by far worthy of PB V.O.D

 some of these comments are unbelievably unnecessary! The camerawork is very good, and is complimented well by good editing. Nothing fancy nad super tech but well thought out. The riding is great too, i don't see why people find the need to say that 'it was nothing special' or 'not very fast'. Put some vids up yourself, edit them and then you can open your mouth. Criticism is good, but c'mon not everyone is sponsored and super fast, but that doesn'y man you can't ride, film and compose a nice piece together.

 It is dark outside just not, but I think I will watch this video again in the morning before getting my bike out of the garage to ride it. The trail itself looks super fun to ride, I wish I had a trail like that somewhere around, oh and weather like that too... Great video, loved it.

 It all about flow, and hell yeah its flowy!

 Nice, my only niggle would be that the riding wasnt particularly fast or exciting which let the video down somewhat in my eyes. Good job nonetheless!

 Nice, tie the trail segments together! You may have but it's not evident. One way is to study screen direction. Petty, I know, but the human eye is used to it. All the pros adhere to this...it establishes geography

 Nice to see someone on a yakuza great filming too man

 Any news on that DH trail being built? I can't find any info...
  • + 1
 not yet i dont think... they are supposed to be trying to pass it with whoever they have to to be able to build actual trails... but me and my friend (the person that made this vid) may or may not be building up there soon.... (quietly)

 Gets boring after the first minute or so. Repetitive. Very HQ, clean edit too.

 so rad, and a good choice of camera... i wish my vids could be this sick

 Where did you find the song? They broke up before they could even release a full CD so I have had no luck.
  • + 1
 Really? Because there are 2 1/2 Sessions albums on the iTunes store. Which is also where I bought it from.
  • + 1
 For real? Maybe what I read was about a different Sessions? I also don't have iTunes (and will never get iTunes) so that would explain my problems there too.
  • + 1
 I don't blame you, I don't like iTunes much, either. Here's an album I just found on Amazon www.amazon.com/listed-as-relationship-Sessions/dp/B001GULW5A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1256766757&sr=1-1 .

 That looks like an EP to me but anyways, sweet thanks for the link. The only songs I have heard by them are this one, and the two in Seasons but pretty good stuff (even if it is kind of hipster music Razz ).

 I like the song.... Good and progressive. But I see absolutely no reason for a DH bike and a full face helmet on this trail, the riding got repetitive and I turned it off at 02:13

 i'm tired of everyone ragging on the riding, totally unnecessary. he's riding the trail faster than any of you guys ragging on him probably could. hell he even won the cat II 19-29 bracket for the fluidride cup overall. the video wasn't about flat out sprinting and pinning it, it was about clean fluid downhill, and thats what it is, so please accept it for what it is versus what you think it "should be".
