Chris Akrigg - A Hill in Spain

Check out my latest video now! A Hill in Spain chronicles my recent trip to Malaga and the surrounding hills where I found this gem of a trail with help from top photographer Victor Lucas. Unsure of what I would find out there, I took my “anything” bike the Mongoose Nugget. What I did find was an incredible, rocky hill side with some fantastic trails.

 It puts a huge grin on my face when someone comes up with a new way to put multiple styles of riding into one vid and does it well enough to keep you glued to the screen all the way through. Great work dude!!

 If this doesn't get VOD, there's something seriously wrong with the world. Chris is an amazing rider, and can so easily combine all different styles of riding, and on one bike - if that isn't do-it-all, i don't know what is!

 Amazing rider, amazing skill. Awesome location....you know Mongoose is gonna make some money now. VOD.

 much respect to Akrigg for his beautiful style. If this doesn't get POD, something is wrong.
  • + 1
 This could get VOY video of the year! If only it were longer and more different styled riders in different parts.
  • + 2
 These riders just take it to a whole new level man
  • + 2
 I need to add this guy to my list of favorite riders. It's so awesome how he combines so many styles of MTB into his own epic style.
  • + 2
 his guy is F***** amazing!!!!

 Nah brah. at 0:49 on the berm you see the backwards arch and circus decal. Cant believe youd be that stupid...
  • + 3
 dont have to insult my intelligence ya twat. but i didnt think the circus was a longer travel fork. just dj.

 Sooo sick!! Can't believe how much control you've got over your bike. Props!!!
  • + 8
 So glad this has made VOD rather than the usual panned close up of trees and leaves as out of focus DH'er in background whizzes, only then for a barrage of him hitting berms in slo mo. Don't get me wrong, I love riding and really appreciate the crazy skills that some of these riders have but its all very samey, showing no imagination. Chris Akrigg on the other hand is a rider with totally bonkers riding ability, and an inspiring imagination on what to do with that ability. Not to mention he produces and edits all his videos which is an amazing talent all in itself. Chris Akrigg, I salute you.

 I think this guy could give Danny MacAskill a run for his money. Razz Love to see the pair of them do a montage, though. Not an adversarial thing.
  • + 2
 yeh but he wasnt all trials bike he was sick specially on a bike that aint really made for trials! but , couldnt beat danny in a trials montage,thats abit too far, dh - yes trials - nah.
  • + 1
 True, but he still has excellent control of his bike. Razz
  • + 3
 I think they're both on the same level. Akrigg is just the MTB equivalent to MacAskill.
  • + 4
 Incredible riding beautifully shot. Well done to the guy behind the lens, the computer and the BIKE!!

That fork does not seem to behave or look like a Manitou Circus, is Manitou in the works for a new freeride fork?
  • + 7
 danny macaskill on a full suss say what??

 this is my new favorite video. I love the combination of downhill and trials. This guy is so talented. The music is wierd but it fits the video perfectly!!! so amazing!!!
  • + 4
 super sick video!!
awesome riding, nice trails!!
but the music could be better Wink
  • + 1
 This has got to be my favourite mtb vid of all time. Seriously Chris, I love all the stuff you put out, your style and your vids make mewanna grab my bike and hit the trails, but this is awesome.
Get well soon bud, we need regular updates from one of the most inspiring riders I've ever seen. One of the best things to come out of Yorkshire (aside from Yorkshire Tea and Yorkshire Tea Loaf of course, love that stuff!).
  • + 1
 Impressive ! I love this vid , a variety of riding accomplished on one pony. The scary thing about his riding is the smooth control he demonstrates from start to finish. What will his riding look like when he pushes the last 5% of the envelope
  • + 4
 weird.. almost makes me want to buy a mongoose..
  • + 1
 I disagree with you there. Because both the two bring trials into their own freeriding styles. So you can compare them. And when i said wannabe i never said this Chris guy wasnt good. Obviously he is an amazing rider.
  • + 4
 Never mind VOD, I'll be surprised if I see a better video all year
  • + 3
 This is amazing! His skill on the bike is utterly spectacular ! Well done to him and the camera crew !
