 Goodbye Bentupbiker - good having you on pinkbike.

 yea it was kinda lame

 i agree somewhat LEWSS alot of DH tracks that you see in america are open, packed, fast tracks. But it is definitly a regional thing. Most of the big races are out west, If you look at the U.S Open course at Diablo in New Jersey, the race trail at Highland Mountain New Hampshire, both top notch mountain bike parks the tracks are super rock garden(y) rooty and very northeastern. I would assume that the tracks in the east resemble the tracks in Jolly old England more than the trails in the west. Just thinkin outloud here

 if you go farther north the tracks are alot more gnarly.. they just just got pussy tracks in cali, exept for northstar and places like that
  • + 5
 Good one, but not one of the kind... I doubt that could be VOD, that's not the special one.
  • + 3
 cool filming and editing, but that stupid gangsta song ruins everything. I clicked away becouse i got to annoyd! MTB riding goes fast, so u need some good and fast music and not that crappy rap-shit!
  • + 1
 really sick of these american dh vods, everyone keeps saying nah thts jst one track u cant sum it all up to that, its bullshit get some proper dh on !!!!, these are hardtail tracks and even it would be smooth and easy on them.

 BENTUPBIKER say goodbye to your account! Smile

 the music sucks
  • + 4
 defo, needs better, faster music.
  • + 3
 Just like yesterday's VOD, this one would have been really good, but the song completely ruined it. Is the new requirement for VOD to have the worst possible music?
  • + 4
 The same shot over and over again, boring!!! Gangsta rap on DH videos sucks. The best bit was the girls at the beginning.
  • + 4
 Exactly. Overuse of slow-mo and the same section of track used make this far from enjoyable. I couldn't even watch it to the end.
  • + 6
 Seen better VOD's
  • + 2
 i know im goona get a lot of down props but that video wasnt good all it showed you was a slideshow of different riders in one spot of the trail
  • + 3
 it was good but most of the video was in the exact same spot over and over again
  • + 4
 y airnt they riding bmx Razz thats such a smooth track
  • + 0
 what are you guys talking about... gnar? def not gnar, and the production in this vid of a track that was hot, dusty, and relatively flat and pedally is superb. he's one guy, and there's one race. you want him to move to different angles? This was great.
  • + 2
 Yes, I do. Instead of filming every rider from exactly the same spot, walk up and down the trail a little bit. I'm sure there's more there than a corner, a gap and a hip. The editing was good, the lack of footage ruined it.
  • + 4
 ya it was the same footage over and over it was just to repetitive
  • + 2
 Those dudes are HAULIN... but its the same segment of trail the entire video.... and dirty south rap for DH biking?? FAIL.
  • + 3
 Muted the video and put some Rush on over the top, much better Razz
  • + 1
 fuck you ace68! sea otter is sick and so was that VOD! and american dh is good theres good places just gotta know where to go...
  • + 2
 If the whole track was like that section looks like you would be better off on a hard tail
  • + 2
 not a bad VOD there has been better tho needs a bit more veriaty in my opinion
  • + 2
 am pretty sure that twisted soul is a make in blue inc...

am i wrong?

 eastern DH is very different then DH out west. its like a bunny rabbit that you see one place is very different than a bunny rabbit in another.
  • + 1

 Oh...he is ripping that course a new one. VOD all the way.
  • + 32
 thats good, but you should film more than just one section
  • + 0
 i was at that shit.... it was fuckin crazy, vod for sure
  • + 42
 ahhh, see this is why America doesn't have any top level Dh riders, the courses you guy use for racing are just BMX tracks. though the sea otter has never been about the track i wish they would sort it out and turn it into a DH course, the 4X courses at viego and champery last year were more gnarly. please don't go shouting JD and riffle, hardly the likes of peat, minnar or hill. bring on the flaming and neg probs
  • + 8
 i agree, vigo 4x looks deadly haha

 btw, good choice of music

 Sea Otter is simply a celebration of bikes, not a DH specific event. There aren't any big hills around Laguna Seca, so they throw together a novelty DH course for the fans. Sea Otter does not represent american DH racing.
  • + 2
 crayon...'true gnar'??? where?
  • + 11
 it would of been better if they wouldn't of showed the same part of the course the whole time..!

"Sea Otter does not represent american DH racing."

What does?
Where are the American international standard riders?

Lewss
has pointed out something that me and my friends have noticed so i hope he dosent get neg probs


Im not taking the piss it just seems strange that in such a big country with such alot of mountains America seems to be missing out.
  • + 16
 fuck i cant stand these gangsta songs in race videos
  • + 3
 If American DH racing sucks, then why do peaty, minnar, and
hill all ride American bikes? Designed on American Trails?
I've never seen anything gnarlier than utah or bootleg canyon in nevada.
  • + 5
 you mentioned places you can go to ride big mountain! we were talking about racing!
  • + 2
 Just go to snowmass or sol vista, you'll have plenty of good racing there, shit that I bet any day a lot of you guys couldn't do.
  • + 3
 There are decent places in america, though there dont seem to be as many full on dedicated DH tracks as in europe. Not saying there arent a lot of quick americans though, just in europe there is more of a variety track wise.

American tracks seem to be pretty open/fast/fun to be honest.
  • + 15
 VOD sucks, music sucks, it the same thing over and over and over........
  • + 2
 ditto to Bman-nothing of interest in the video-lame track, lame riding, and the music's so bad it sucks & blows at the same time! Sea Otter is a cross country fest where dh is a novelty they added after the fact.
  • + 3
 dhmental , the american bikes like v10 arent created using american tracks , these wc downhill bikes have been developed over years on the world cup circuits around the world, they are only manufactured in the US. not sayin that US tracks are shit , i've never ridden dh in the US so i'm not sayin anything till i have tried,

 really starting to get bored off these vods

sign up for this
sessions.searchpluswin.com/?cmd=sb-register&rb=415751
k what it is... its a web site like google right, its even powered by google you use it exactly how you would use google. so lets say you search on google every couple searchs(i don't know how many) you will get points you can use these points to put towards like snowboard gear (as in really rad t-shirts, and
and some gnar stickers) its pretty sick and its all for free. just set it to your home page
and search

 ya . alot of american made bikes .. and tested here. usa has more djs and big mountain ..its not all about the dh races
  • + 2
 Check out Angel Fire, New Mexico, USofA. I grew up there. They Hosted a WC race in 2005, Absolutely fast, gnarly course, Upper section is nothing but roots and lava rock, bottom is balls to the wall ski run and trees, And the fact that it rains almost every year on the event makes it straight world cup material

 ok how about no one talks shit about ther country unless they have been ther

 ok ziegele, i can agree to that,

 There is a race here in Socal at Fontana and there are rocks there bigger than your guys VW's and Renaults. There are gnarly dh tracks in America, but not too many WC tracks.

 People bashing American racing don't really know what they are saying because they dont even know the area. This is one trail, in one state. Theres 49 other states to right in.. The farther north you go (oregon, washington) more mountains pop out and the trails are sick!
