Default Where The Trail Ends

I just watched this mountain bike video and it's insane... It's like the Art Of Flight mixed with Further (Jeremy Jones), but on mountain bikes. These guys travel the globe and get heli's to drop them off on top of mountains where they ride insane chutes and lines... crazy! I would be impressed to see guys do these lines on snow, let alone rock and dirt. Totally worth watching the movie.

Here's a trailer for it, but it just doesn't do it justice at all... the trailer is kind of dull until the 2 minute mark, and check out the line at 3:50... awesome.

As a DH/FR mtb'er, I agree this movie was pretty sick. Great cinemography, beautiful locations, great riding, good soundtrack, and a storyline too. I still prefer a different style film though, like Follow Me and Kranked 8 over Lifecycles and Where the Trail Ends.

Saw the trailer awhile ago
But never got around to watching the movie.
Now I'll watch it, especially since right now I'm lonely and home alone on new years eve

And the guy at 3:00 is wearing shorts, a tank top, and no gloves!

Seems like most DH racers, FR guys, and even Dirtjumpers ride without gloves now. They say they get better feel and grip or whatever. I fall, and always instictively use my hands to save me when hitting the dirt, rocks, trees, whatever. Riding glove-less would end very badly for me.

Holy balls! That's insane! They were making skidded turns with their back tire. Those guys are incredible.

Saw it a few months back when they had the free viewing the first 24 hours. That is some insane riding and just made me want to go jump on my bike.
