 I'm gonna have to split this comment up because it's too long for a single one.

I don't really know where to start...
It took me a while to watch, and unfortunately I had to stop it a few times, although rest assured I did see it all. You asked me to review it, so I'll do my best.

Let's start from the beginning. I thought the Disclaimer was pretty funny and that's always a good thing, especially when you're just about to watch a 30 min movie. The introduction and the shots in the first section were pretty good, although the James Blunt song was an 'interesting' choice. I liked your section - the music went nicely, and the sunset shots had a nice warm, comfortable feeling to them. Some of the shots were quite long though, maybe you could have cut them off a little earlier? There were some pretty shaky ones too..The shots in general were good, but there are some which could have had much better angles.

 There was a nice mix of riding and non-riding material though, and each person's sectin was the perfect length. The fast motion scenic shots were all great. I really liked Weston's section too, some really nice shots in there. The snow shots were great, a nice contrast to the beginning sections. In the section with Joker And The Thief playing in the background, the shots were all nicer than in the rest (colours were much better, whole video should have been like that), and the trail was really interesting. And the idea to keep the last section as the one with all the riders coming together was awesome, really a nice conclusion to it all. And overall, the editing was solid too.

I'll be honest - the riding isn't amazing, the interviews were very hard to hear, and the cinematography isn't the best I've seen either (and I can say the same for my own videos). What you have done, which I have never managed do, is create a video which shows how much you all love mountain biking, how much you enjoy yourselves, with a real sense of friendship and community. The deleted scenes and the end showed that really clearly too. And that is something I wish I could convey in what I do.

So what you've done is great. No, it's not perfect. Nothing is. But it was pretty damn good and you can only learn from your experiences. I say all this but I should be doing the same too. You guys should be proud of what you've done, and maybe next year we'll see something better!

 that gavin kid could do a lot better with 44 acres then that given some tools and trail knowledge. I was stoked seeing the washout, I always called it the lavatube.

 That was pretty sick. Had some nice angles. The washout section was epic and all the other sections were good. Those were some funny crashes! Good film of Mt. Shasta DH!

  • + 1
 haha, o they have a similar design my mistake
  • + 1
 tell him to buy a fox 36 van. it suits the bike better and the quality of the fork eats the stock fork of the enduro
  • + 1
 we're not really made of money. The cable cam is just that, a cable we bought with a sketch rig we made to hold our crap camera. But ill tell him
