 man, your 16... I'm 16... You just became my idol! awsome job on the video. very tallented. keep it up!
  • + 12
 what puzzles me about the video's i have seen of downhill racers training. is the trails they are riding on are fairly easy with very few rock gardens and super steep technical parts to it. wouldn't it be better to train on the scariest and most difficult terrain out there so when the go to races you are used to that stuff and it's easy?
  • + 8
 don't worry you havent seen all of the trail in these video's lol

  • + 12
 He should get some hair cut.. Norco = SUX.
  • + 4
 o and your shred is soooo sick...pos!
  • + 8
 What is going on here..........?

This was average again, Courses were basically foot paths, riding was nothing special to look at, half the vid was him talking and then pushing up. Come on guys, where are your standards. Bring back LaRock.........
  • + 5
 Actually their island cup race courses, but thanks for watching.
  • - 3
 I did think the intro was too long, plus with my crappy internet speed it took ages to download a guy pushing a bike!
  • + 5
 Dont listen to the brits.
  • + 4
 I think today Goblin, yer off the mark. This kid's got the tools, and I hope to see him repping Canada on the big podiums some day.
  • + 4
 I dont get this could be considered average...I like Larocks edits alot but in my opinion Faultline is a level higher with skill like the shots are amazing, especially the dolly ones!
  • + 3
 Well i watched it again and i'm sticking with my opinion, i think technically the video is very good, the shots, the editing etc are excellent. I still think there was too much pushing up, and too much interview and most of all the riding was average at best. Nothing spectacular to look at, no super-tech sections, no super-fast sections, no super-steep sections, and no big air.
Regardless of whether he's a good rider, the video does not impress me at all. I rode with a tonne of other guys at the weekend who pin it way harder.
I really don't see how the 'kids got the tools'? Whats the standard we're talking about here?
He just goes round alot of corners, and gets the odd little bit of air.

I'll reiterate that regardless of the courses being 'Island Cup' courses (Whatever they may be) they are boring to watch and don't make the rider look very good, which i imagine is the point of the video?

May be an unpopular opinion, but thats what it is, my opinion. I don't bum LaRock either, his vids are just very good, and make the rider look amazing above all else.
  • + 7
 urgh, could live without that bike and what's with all the ski movie music and slow mo's. Is it still 1998? I've never liked Norco vids. BORING. I hate it how they always interview the riders, even though they have NOTHING to say and edit it over some soul-less 'slow-hop' music. Make some effort norco. bring some passion. make a vid that compliments the rider, stop just splicing together 2mins of footage of a guy skidding round some corners. He deserves better.
  • + 4
 Atomlab31,

Even though your are allowed to have your own opinion, I think you are totally wrong about this video. I would like to clear up a few things for you. In no way whatsoever, if Fault Line affiliated with Norco Bikes. We are a media company, and have sponsored one of Norco's athletes. Another thing is, out of all people here, I have seen this video the most, as I spent the 7 hours filming it, and the 5 to edit it. I can assure you, their are only 2, slow mo shots in this video. I know because I have to film them at a different setting. Norco also makes killer videos, they focus on the soul of the rider, just like the collective does. Also being a producer it is very hard to find music that fits the mood AND that you can get creative commons licencing for, you try it one day.

Thanks for watching though!
Eric P. DOP/Producer

 dude you shouldnt have to back up your own video. if you beleive in what you've created it should speak for you. but i gotta say the music was terrible, there is no place in this world for rap or hip hop or whatever you call it. yes that may be an opinion but it is also a fact. look it up. secondly, the riding was indeed boring, absolutly no progression throught the film just identical shot throughout and zero plot line with some rough stitching. beautiful colours though, obviously you know how to set up a camera properly, having said all this i appreciate this video as i do any video produced with effort and passion. keep it up.
  • + 1
 Glad you liked it! I wouldn't calling it defending myself. Just correcting him... He thinks it's a lot of slow mo? Obviously he didn't watch the movie very closely. Also not sure how you visually progress over a week, but thats just me... Thanks for the comments though! -ep
  • + 0
 Dear fault line media. I'm sorry I confused you for norco. but I stick by my statement. The slow-mo comment was meant to just be a general statement about vids that use them, I possibly didn't word it right but I just felt that the slow-mos that were used detracted from the feel of the vid. which is all about 'Pinnin' well fast. On the Music front, there are loads of bands on myspace who would love to let you use their music, all you have to do is ask. If you put their name on it they'll easily let you use the songs.
  • + 1
 i liked the vid and loved the song so much i gotta get the name from you.
  • + 2
 .First song is:
Frozen in Time by Ghost ft. Verb T
www.myspace.com/musicbyghost

.Second is
Road To Zion by Damien Marley
-Thanks for watching
  • + 1
 Damian Marley is the shit! I think it's awesome people are starting to use reggae (which last I checked is nothing called "slow-hop") in their vids!
Awesome job!
  • + 9
 booooo
  • + 3
 great edit, great music, sick trails, but man i gotta be honest, i didn't see any overly amazing riding, like its good riding, you handle the rock garden amazingly, and you seem fast, but this promo wouldn't really make me interested in you right away, if i were a sponsor. keep up the riding tho bro, with practise comes more sponsors.
  • + 3
 I have to agree with specialized116; Great video, fast riding, sweet bike...but finish school mans, you need PR skills. How about thanking Norco for the wheels? Or crediting how good that bike is your riding is, not just its smooshie, theres R&D in that bike older than you probably.

He's fast though, give yeahs that!
  • + 3
 Thanks for the input. It is our first time doing the whole talking thing in our video's. It's pretty awkward for the rider, not sure if you've ever done it. Alos tired from hiking up the mountain. It's about 3000 ft in elevation. Thanks for watching though. Glad you liked it.
  • + 2
 Understandablely, anytime someone is filmed or observed they act differently or awkward, and yes I have experienced this, as a musician, many times. However, for someone wanting to "go pro" conjuring up more vocabulary than your rider should be simple task; regardless of how tired he may be. I am merely crticizing the rider not the videographer, the movie was excellent quality! You have quite the talent going there!
  • + 6
 I am sick of LaRock bummers. he's not the only person that can make a good video.
  • + 4
 Pinner dude.. congrats on the sponsors.. amazing job eric.. man hopefully i ride with you guys this year. I would gladly pay for the quality you do man..good luck this year dexter
  • + 3
 This is VOD because it was an amazing video. Not trying to be mean 'Dexter', but the film made you look a lot faster than you are haha. But, this is Video of the Day, not Riding of the Day. Amazing video boys!
  • + 1
 The shots were not manipulated to make him look faster, when I watch this video i see what dexter looks like riding his bike, his cumberland result was not so nice he had 2 slide outs and ended up farther down than he deserved.
  • + 2
 I didn't expect you to agree. I know he fell, as did I. Aswell was it my second race run. I saw him practicing, fast kid. But the shots were done very well and cut perfectly to give him that extra edge, you can't really deny that.
  • + 0
 i agree with faultline and you lol, uhm the shots all spliced together super fast to make it seems like I "pop" out of things, but i mean thats what i feel like when i'm riding... lol and I also look f*cking amazing at everything i do so yeah... Wink
  • + 1
 Haha, nothing wrong with thinking that... Razz
Racing in Nanaimo on the 19th?
  • + 1
 yeah dude gonna stick with expert gives me somthing to try harder for.
  • + 1
 Wow Dexter, you cocky bitch. Yes we'll all be at the Nanaimo race this time. Camera and all.
  • + 1
 Ya, I'll be in expert this time aswell. Seeing as people were calling me a sandbagger before, made me sad.

Hows the course, I heard it was a flat and not to go? Hopefully I can make it out and meet you boys.
  • + 1
 The course is alright, we have a video of it from a long time ago if you can find it, it's been updated ALOT since then though, the course that is, and it's a fun one. It's in Fault-Line-08. But still come, racing is the best.
  • + 1
 True. Well don't expect anything special from me if it's pedally, but I'll see you guys there none the less!

If you see me/bike, don't be afraid to walk up.
  • + 1
 Nothing special here, and that's what makes it special. Amazing simplicity and for the first time, nothing out rageous. Just awesome lines, great control and smooth all the way through. Awesome job! Ill keep my eye out in the future for this kid.
  • + 3
 Wow, left me speachless. Could give the collective (anthill) a run for their money. What kinda camera are you using cause the picture is unreal for webvideo.
  • + 1
 Thanks man, glad to hear you liked it. I am filming with a Panasonic AG-HPX170. actually the newer version of what the collective has used in their films (when not shooting film that is). -eric p.
  • + 2
 All I can say is WOW- you guys are getting on a pro level, remember what I wrote some months ago? You'd go pro, and here you are!
Looks like I'v got some new toys to shoot.
This vid deserves VOD and you got my vote!
  • + 2
 heyhey, great riding dex, i think you have really progressed with your new bicycle from norco, and eric, beautiful filming, the best ive seen so far, cant wait to get back, and ride with you guys
  • + 1
 reckon the editing scenery (like that should even matter) was better than yesterdays VOD, but the riding was still flat and boring in my opinion, i dont know why everyone likes this one so much better than yesterdays promo. and half the video is him walking his bike everywhere
  • + 0
 they like it because canada did something good in the dh scenee(besides stevie).
  • + 1
 this dude is 16??
that there is major inspiration right there, even if i dont get a sponsor or go pro or any of that, it makes me want to get on my bike and ride, and get better and keep enjoying what i love doing. your going to be a legend dude
  • + 1
 This is awesome, great biking, great filming! I think we ran into you the other day up in nanaimo. Were you filming that day? Good day for it for sure, we're heading up again this weekend.
  • + 1
 Some of my riders were up in Nanaimo on the weekend? Not sure if thats when you saw them. Wasn't filming though. Hope your at the race in Nanimo though, their needs to be more girls racing! Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. -ep

  • + 1
 I liked the vid, but if I were sponsored by Norco, I would complement the bike a lot more than "Norco hooked me up with my new bike, and idonno... I like it so far. It does a pretty good job."
  • + 1
 He had only been riding it, for a week or so. He didn't really know how it rode. But I'd agree the interview was a little lacking!!! Smile

Thanks for watching...

 Your best video by far! Definately one of the best I've seen on here in a long time.

 Props to the camera man and film maker, but the riding was very mediocre and pretty un-stylish, quite boring really....
