 It's how you spell it you stupid man.

 I assume that you mean Americans are extraordinarily bad riders. In which case you would use the spelling exceptionally not acceptionally ( which, consequently isn't even a word). If you still think your right check the dictionary.

 F#$k all you haters who got nothin better to do than judge other people. It's about being with your friends and being on your bike and loving every minute of it.I'm sooo tired of everyone trying to divide everyone based on skill. Shut the f#$k up and ride your bike

 Right on, I especially take offense to the comments from the English guys about "American riding", and "American Bike Parks, that are boring and don't require pedaling:
  • + 4
 couldn't agree more guys. I think some people missed the point of the video which was we had a GREAT time at diablo on opening day just riding and having a good time.
  • + 6
 good vid. you fall like that when you are learning drops and finally get the cohones to try it. watch it again, you will see how he falls. See you in Diablo. everyone in england should chip in and buy a lift!

 don't think this should be vod, well edited and okay riding, but VOD demands more.... it has to inspire you both on your bike and behind the lense or laptop..
  • + 0

 Funny, I've never seen any good footage in any major bike film from England. Oh, except for the sloppy muddy trail riding of Steve Peat in Seasons (the trail was sloppy, not Steve!) Let's just say I won't be getting on a plane with my DH bike and heading to England anytime soon. Do you guys even have lifts? Stop hating. Nice vid.

Edit: This was a reply to bloodie, but I posted it too low...

 Below average riding let down this film. Kinda classic American park: Sit on your big bike and ride down some smooth track, no pedalling.
  • + 2
 VOD for sure man
  • + 2
 has my vote aswell man

 the riding could hav been a little better....
  • + 25
 there was some real wobblers in there...
  • + 4
 a cool chill vibe to the video, but really thats the vod today?
  • + 18
 how do you bail on the phantom drop, it practically rides itself
  • + 2
 cool looking park, but not vod worthy
  • + 2
 whats this??!!
  • + 6
 the riding kinda sucked...they were always lookin sketched out
  • + 4
 that video fucking sucked in my opinion. sick trails but terrible riding
  • + 1
 i agree with him ^^
  • + 3
 dude that was better weather then this past weekend... they didnt have the lift open till noon bc of high winds fucking with the lift... i hiked dominon from 9 to 1....
  • + 2
 Looks like a smooth run.
  • + 6
 So they aren't pro, but surely bad is a little harsh? I don't see any timing equipment, my bet is they are just riding for fun. If you have to have professional quality all the time, I suggest you spend more time buying movies and less time watching edits people make in their free time.

 well said captain blt

 LOL THAT KID GOT OWNED ON PHANTOM

 hey, thats my bike in the last scene.

 Excellent edit man, awesome to se everybody shredding! My vote for vod

 Love this place...

 The kid in the blue and white with the Fox 40's doesn't even use half of his suspension travel, and hes just mowing everything over. Wouldn't it be nice to have mum and dad to buy me a bike...
  • + 5
 I think you mean "it would be nice to work and be responsible enough to save money and afford a bike."
  • - 2
 lol good one, whats he doing selling coke? hes got a 6 grand bike and full tld riding gear.
  • - 2
 So you wouldn't take a nice bike if your parents offered to help you afford one? There's better things to do than be jealous of others.
  • + 2
 I actually i have a job!!

good guess tho :0
  • + 3
 the kid you are talking about is 17 years old, works at a grocery store every week, and got the bike used from diablo for 2 grand.
  • - 1
 Hhaha.
  • + 4
 Diablo has a deal through Jamis and they are selling the used demo bikes for $2000, get your shit straight before you insult some high schooler who's worked to be able to buy a bike.

 how do you fall on a drop like that?
