 With so many VOD's being over produced bike adverts this was so refreshing.It has so much originality to it .Yeah there were jumps etc but not everyone can relate to a guy jumping 4 buses or doing a trick the Crusty Demons would be happy with . It was just a guy shredding the trail and someone shooting what he saw...this is one very good all round video and maybe the only vid i have seen worthy since fast focus last put a vid out.....thanks for sharing your skill ......

 I breath...the dust of the earth. My sweat stains aluminum and steal. I speak in grunts. i answer in groans. I rely on mineral oil. i believe in rubber. I climb. I descend. I even ride chair lifts. but i always pedal. I may live elsewhere BUT I BELONG IN WHISTLER

 Great vid mate, thanks. Rally good mix of audio, music to bike noises. I can always tell how much impression a video has on me by how much I want to ride. It's night time, I have the flu and yet I'd go shuttle right now if someone pulled up with a truck!

 awesome stuff Liam! Kirk also has to stop being so damn smooth so that the stuff looks as gnarly as it is haha
  • + 2
 Was expecting Yoda to appear in that first shot. Really good edit, great mix of tech, speed, air etc that you don't often see.
