 The aspect ratio is messed up

 i wouldn't say VOD sorry. trail seemed a little boring
  • + 60
 same as above i wouldnt quite say VOD but there was some alrite riding in there, they kind of over did it on the slow mo i think lol. could have been better...

 tld make rastafarian race outfit! nice!

 I thought it was good. Over use of slowmo is what I think let it down. Not bad though.

 SlowMo overkill in my opinion...to much use of it ! Song was kinda gay aswell tbh... Not as lame as yesterdays VOD though... Only good thing was the fairly decent riding.
  • + 1
 nice vid. Not a brilliant VOD however.
The music just reminded me of GTA: San Andreas.
  • + 6
 Noone gonna comment on the bike?? O.K. i will: Funking sweet polkadot paint job!!!

 Coooool Barracuda

 poor VOd in my oppinion, no veriety in shots or track, music wasnt great either, good riding though.
  • + 4
 It was not that bad. I actually enjoyed watching it, the riding and the filming were good and the track seemed nice. The editting was not that good, it would be better with less slowmotion and maybe a different song.
  • + 6
 Sorry too much slow motion guys. When I was editing in slow motion in HD you could easily see the dirt getting cut and the wind he made. Too bad there isn't 720p resolution on here
  • + 3
 proper shit mate to much slow-mo

 Everyone likes a bit of slo-mo but that was just wayyy to much.. also the trail was kinda boring. I don't think this deserved VOD
  • + 0
 The trail didn't look fun at all.
  • + 3
 it was an ok veideo. but its about time someone put some classic rock in a video...great tune, Heart is amazing

 Music doesn't go with the video at all...

 i think it was a great VOD because he was wearing the same pants as me.
  • + 2
 well someone is a fast lil barricuda Wink Razz
  • + 2
 it may be just me but it didnt seem like he was riding that fast either, could have been the slow mo though.
  • + 2
 true true lol Razz

 Is this vid in port angeles?
  • + 6
 Nice cut Andy. That last little section where he almost got bucked looks pretty gnarly!
  • + 2
 That course looks pretty tuff. the altered aspect ratio makes it hard to see how step some of the gnar is. good effort.
  • + 5
 that was not that interesting. didnt deserve VOD, im sorry. it was bland and lame.
  • + 3
 i thought it was terrible, not that i could do better. but there are plenty of better video's that deserve vod over this one
  • + 2
 why american downhill vods lately there not proper downhill theres no point in putting a full sus down them would be much better and faster on a hardtail
  • + 0
 I would love to see you ride a hardtail down that trail. Faster? I doubt it. Finishing the trail would be an accomplishment. Besides, this video, including the slow mo, etc is still shorter than the fastest time of the weekend.

Don't judge trails just by watching a video.
  • + 2
 it is a hardtail track tbh if you compare it to places in scotland pal. finishing it would be an accomplishment would it? shut up dont be so full of yourself. theres to many flat and smooth sections thats why u could get faster on a hardtail, and i think i can tell whats slow mo i didnt think u were that slow.
  • + 0
 I'm not full of myself dude, I have no illusions about my ability to ride this track. There are flat and smooth sections, but the majority of the track would not be faster on a hardtail.

My point was not that you couldn't tell what is/isn't slow mo. It's that you're seeing only about half of the track. So just relax and enjoy the video.
  • + 1
 You guys need to see it in better quality so you can see what it's actually like without it being smooshed together. There is about 4 places where a hardtail would be sort of cool, but still not faster.
  • + 2
 he was going to slow for the slowmotion to work properly, it looked very weak. i have seen better videos that deserve VOD more then this.
  • + 2
 The song was mint the track looked heaps of fun but as others said slo-mo was what let it down a little slo-mo helps but overuse can also kill it.
  • + 4
 nah not vod lets have the next one and it better be better
  • + 1
 yeaaa racing massooooonn
what happened to your cove bro??
thats a sick comencal anywayy
good luck this year dude

 Nice video, awesome riding Mason!!!
  • + 2
 yeah way to go andy liked it alot. His bike is sick as well. Keep up the good work!
  • + 3
 Agreed. I guess they're running out of good videos to be selected for VOD.
  • + 1
 Never listen to people that can't make their own videos Andy. Good job- sick track and sorry I forgot to add this to my report. I just found it.
  • + 1
 Not got my vote for vod i'm afraid. Does the rider think he has a stylish whip or what? My gran could do a bigger whip than that.
  • + 2
 dece filming and riding but seriously couldve made it A LOT better and awful choice of song for biking.
  • + 2
 wow...are you kidding pinkbike? VOD? really? no disrespect to the rider but come on. PB your better than that.
  • + 3
 Ehh, camera angles make it all look steep. agree with FPF. tho
  • + 2
 It is steep. It's the pro category race course
  • + 1
 I would say the camera angles make it look less steep than it actually is, since I've actually seen the course. but w/e.

 Tooooo mmmuuucchhh sssllllloooowwwww mo.
