Premortem

A 10 years old trail that will be destructed in a few weeks because of lumbering. Sad but true...This video is our last tribute for this spot where we grew up with our bikes.

 Are you f*cking kiddin me why are none of your videos VOD!?!?!? 2.32 holy shit yes! It seems like the riders you film are really throwing down their best in every shot, super close to each other, don't care if they eat it. I'm lovin your edits man!

 On a side note, I think it's funny that some people think MTB is terrible for the forrests. Most of us build and keep it on the down low and really aren't destructive at all.

funny because now it's getting destroyed so some company can profit by knocking down the trees. A harmless trail built from passion and sweat is being torn down for money....kinda pisses me off. I'm sorry it has to be that way. Great tribute video though Smile makes me want to get a trail bike

 Logging has always been present and it is us, who got in their way not other way around as harsh as it may seem. Also majority of forest roads in all shapes and sizes have been build for logging primarily so again we don't have right to claim them.
For the logging part, if your trail is on the the state land it is done by contractors and it depends on person what they will do, in my experience they are not necessarily bad guys, usually just ordinary people doing their job. Got few of trails around here logged in past and in most cases they did what they had to do, but were not after trails. Ofc there is a lot of collaborate damage and requires some repairing afterwards but the trail remained. If the state/land owner is also after your trail then there is nothing you can do. What i wanted to say the trail is not neccessarily lost. This seems great track and would be real shame if it will get destroyed

 Purity Ring- Fineshrine (huglife remix)
The editors of this video also cut the song a bit and tuned it, wish I could download this PB version but the huglife version is still pretty good.

 winko you are correct. If it's not your land, well, then it's not your land. Logging does sicken me though. I don't even like cutting trees to make way for trail to be honest. Yup Im a full blown hugger. Watching logging is like witnessing mass murder.

 I'm right though. Lots of people just ask for songs and then wait, hopefully someone replies. I hate that. IF it's not mentioned, I'll either comment and ask (and look as well) or just look and not bother. It's nice when video makers put the song name in the description.

 @hwipiwill people probably negative prop you because the song isn't Purity Ring- Fineshrine (huglife remix) it is Purity Ring - Belispeak

see www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVcOwVD4V30

It even says what the song is from 2:56 - 3:00 at the bottom of the screen

 I didn't see that. If you search the other song I mentioned, it sounds nearly the same.

 Destructed!, Lumbering!, haha we have the same problems here in British Columbia, trails get destroyed and land gets logged! and then new trails are borne. Vive la France.

 Sad to hear about your trail,
But it's just the way it goes, unfortunately, we are the ones buying that exact same wood they destroyed or forests for.

I feel your pain though, it was a beautiful trail, how did you call it?

 After watching videos like this one I realize that the older I get the more I need to get out there and find these great trails. There just isn't enough time to enjoy them all. Great video, loved it.

 Sweet trail, sorry for your loss. I nearly shed a tear when my favorite jump spot got bulldozed then I just went and built somewhere else. Loving those nose wheelies at the beginning and the tree-tap was cool too.

 this is so under recognized for how great the video is.... good job

 Township just bulldozed the last of our local trails on Wednesday W. T. F. No rhyme or reason just to do it, at least there is a reason here but it still blows

 i hit mute first thing, but the riding and location was nice! and on a side note...lol to all you complaining about loggers. do you live in a house, do you use paper, or a pencil, or just about anything out there??? if you remove absolutally everything made out of wood, from your entire life, then wine about logging. but if you live in a house, go shopping at a grocery store, go to a gas station, where clothes made out of cotton, like to stand on a deck....etc....please just shut up and grow a working brain, before you get sent back to kindergarden for being so stupid.....man.....stupid people are so stupid they dont even know it...lol....realy!!!
  • + 2
 @Ace you are trying to say something but u mesh it all up! What house, shopping, gas station and cotton!!!!!! has to do with logging??? Of course all the above friends must be ecologists and help this by spend less paper and similar products.But for the paper as much as i know they have controlled forests(Finland-Norway) to produce it . . So leave this trail alone for these 2 shredders!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 2
 i said all those things, because if it wasnt for logging to get the wood the buildings those stores are made out of, that you do all that in, you wouldnt even have the grocery store to buy your food/gas/clothes at. logging is where they get the wood to make all of that out of. yes, i do agree it sucks when it moves to where your trails are! but just complaining about logging in general, is kinda stupid. thats why i posted that.

 and nickroy, if you didnt put that together the first time you read it, i refer to the last line typed 2 days ago.
  • + 3
 I know that in the states a big percentage of the buildings are made of wood . . this is not a common thing here in Greece we prefer something worse . . cement!!!
  • + 2
 i can see that....lol..kinda...im from columbia falls, montana. and here, darn near everything is made from wood. glacier national park is only about 15 miles from my front door. logging and saw mills are what i grew up around the last 29 years. and i agree it is annoying when they move to a place we spent 2+ years building the trails on. but since i grew up here, that is why it annoys me when people are trying to bad talk something that i know for a fact, does have to happen. and fyi: i wasnt acctually trying to talk crap to you, it comes out that way about certain things though.
