 Timmmmahhhh. Haha, I love watching vids of dogs shred the trails, I don't think there was one clip where I actually concentrated on you and the bike though Razz
  • + 45
 the only reason i faved this video was because of the dog
  • + 33
 that dog was awesome!

 is that noise the dog or the brakes?
  • + 21
 its too hard to concentrate on the rider when theres a dog shredding in the back round
  • + 9
 so cute! haha thats one noisy dog!
  • + 21
 Far better line choice by Timmy. Straight lined everything.

 "not loving the slow mo of the dogs arse" Does it make you feel sexually uncomfortable or something?

 I bet the dog was fixed with pinkbike saying "that frame is gonna give" all the way... Beer

 The tire tap and the Timmy slo mo root jump were sick. Awesome, as usual B-rad.

 I don't think this would have made VOD without Timmy. The riding is not incredibly impressive, the dog is most certainly the focal point. Way to go Timmy!!
  • + 4
 ncrider- looking at your profile, I highly doubt you'd be able to ride the full trail in this edit, forget about doing it with the style that he ripped it with. Anyways, the edit started out unimpressive but man did it get wayyy sicker as it went on! That tire tap was soooo nice! If that's all one trail then wow, incredible. It has everything!
  • + 1
 another sick edit, Brad. well done.

 scott-townes + ncrider5= ownage

 ur dog has got some sweet lines....

 hah scott-townes I see how you can make that assumption, Thanks for letting me know its time to change my 5 year old pictures.
  • + 4
 ncrider5, based on your location (NC) and the fact that you don't know Brad leads me to believe you're totally clueless of his roots. The stuff in this vid would make your sphincter pucker, let alone ride it with style. Sorry man, gotta call bullshit on you.
  • + 1
 True that ebx!
  • + 25
 Hey Brad, awesome video. Looks like you were diggin on the Entourage! Thanks for this. - Kona
  • + 6
 And Brad,how did U like the frame?
Entourage seems to get amazing reviews,but I'd like to know what is your personal opinion?

And of course,props for the great vid!
My vote for VOD but I;m not sure if that's possible because your dog is not wearin a helmet... Big Grin

 "My vote for VOD but I;m not sure if that's possible because your dog is not wearin a helmet." - ha!

Entourage full product review coming shortly. Next week or so. Thanks!

 Its not often an edit makes me feel as good as I did after I watched that. Great filming and editing, sweet riding on what appears to be a rad trail, and possibly the world's coolest dog!!! The slow mo super-dog was killer!!! Thanks very much Brad!
  • + 3
 I can hear the dog screaming: "Wait for me please Wait for me!"
LOL
I never take my dog ​​rides because she gets in my wheels ...
  • + 1
 I know that feeling. Broke my dogs tail out on a ride once cause she was trying to bite my wheel.
  • + 2
 Wow......have watched it like 5 times already......think it's your best yet. Damn I just wanna ride now. Loved the Timmy slo-mo.......looked exactly like a fox to me. Definite VOD. Congrats on the fine work Brad
  • + 1
 It's been said all over but... nice slow-mo of the dog. Epic, I can't take my dog either, he tries to bite my ankles and hates bikes for some reason. My cat would make a better riding companion. So much for man's best friend...
  • + 1
 About time! When I saw this 2 weeks ago I was waiting and waiting for it to make VOD then after it being on the top news yesterday I thought still no VOD? But now it has made it and well deserved, go Timmy-Timmaaay!

  • + 1
 Just saw this video and it brought a HUGE smile to my face. Timmy is awesome! Love them Lassie dogs. He was pinned right there with ya, a best friend for sure! the slowmo at 1:55 = priceless.
  • + 2
 My family could never give me a good answer as to why we shouldn't get a dog. Well here's damn good proof as to why we should. Sick slow-mos btw!
  • + 2
 B-Rad, your getting ridiculously good at filming yourself. I predict another VOD for you. Timmy's gonna be one svelt dog soon enough! Love the slo-mo doggy gap.
  • + 1
 This is epic. Definite VOD material. 1:56 for the win!
I really need to have a play with the videography side of self portraiture.

 My little girl loves shredding the trails with me......though shes always in front and i cant keep up!

 Awesome video and awesome song! What would be fun to see is the dog pull off a whip or even just jump off one of the jumps after the biker does. None the less, Sick video!
