 If Freeride's dead what am i doing when i ride?

 dh isnt all just about racing, although its a great way too use your skills to many people are making the sport more competitive then enjoyable, im showing this to my riding buddies because sometimes they start to treat our normal rides as competitions and end up bad mouthing each-other on how we ride, this videos real good cuz it shows that free riding just getting less significant. awesome video thoughWink

 Freeride will NEVER die. As long as bikes exist. Big Grin

 this guy is such zesty rider. 1:15 - 1:20 his riding is loose as a prostitutes...
great vid Smile

 freeride: to ride freely doing as you wish and as you will, every line is an option and every session ends with high fives and beers with bros!
  • + 2
 blahblahblah,...... enjoy hopkins shred, its freeride with a grace!! dont think so?! > just skip Razz
> song: [matches perfect!] Situation Leclerq - Shiny Boots
...have fun!

 Talk is cheap, go out and ride... I like this attitude! Not to forget: very cool video!
  • + 1
 I love how all of you guys claim free riding is riding for the love of it but then you bag on anyone not rocking a dh bike. Free riding is mountain biking! Plain and simple. No competitions just finding shit to rip. I ride dh bikes and other bikes and for anyone in the bike world to try and separate different classes of bikes is what kills freeride. Douche bags.

 blahblahblah,...... eNJOY hopkins sHRED, or just skip Razz

 "Freeride's dead Hopkins, everythings a contest now"
"WHY DOES EVERYONE KEEP SAYING THIS SHIT?!"

I laughed so hard lol

 Freeride being dead is like saying having fun on bikes is dead! Great vid.. Great point.. Just go out and ride!
  • + 1
 Great video. It would have been even better with 3 or 4 guys killing the trail together. Freeriding is also about shreddin with the bros.
  • + 1
 great video. the espresso preparation was an atrocity. why don't people learn how to prepare espresso if it is their job? viva la freeride!
  • + 2
 haha I gotta come clean on that one. The espresso making is not shot in the coffee shop because that would have been too much of a hassle. Hopkins makes the coffee so your issue is with him there....

 Freeride for life!! because the essence of freeride is simply the way of having fun and finding new lines or trails or tricks by your self or friends. freeride cant be classified in any contest because its not a contest!

  • + 1
 As long as you go out for a rip without anybody telling you to do it, or judging you, as long as you ride for the feeling it brings YOU, then youre freeriding Smile
