Midweek Mini Movies

Welcome to the best way to waste a Wednesday lunchtime. Down tools and wrap your eyeballs around this cracker from Aaron Larocque. Shot on a wet day in British Columbia, it’s a stylishly shot, moody antidote to all the dust we’ve been coveting lately. Get out and ride through wet roots and puddles…

We’ll leave it up to Italian snapper Marco Toniolo to introduce his new series The Line – “Dennis Switch hasn’t been sleeping well for many days. His life was as good as usual, but he was focusing on something special he has been having in his mind for years now, and from that came his fear and nightmares during the night. The work was only a way to earn some money, nothing more.

Follow the line with Mr. Switch……”

There aren’t any massive big tricks in this BMX one but it’s got style in bucketloads. It’s also got a soundtrack by The Black Keys and a kitten keyboard at the start…

A bit of serious suffering now if you’ve got ten minutes. It’s a clip from ‘A Sunday In Hell’, which tells the tale of riders in the brutal 1976 Paris-Roubaix road race. Bit of crashing and bleeding in there, so probably best to put your lunch down if you’ve got a weak stomach…

We might as well throw in a bit of skiing while we’re at it. The cliff dropping backflip looks especially bonkers on a chest-cam…

Back to mountain bikes with dirt jumper Sam Pilgrim’s first edit of 2011…

Erm, we stumbled across this and it hurt our brains. Fixie tricks? Make your own mind up…

Liam Murphy has made another video for Skyline Cycles – this is the Kona Tanuki, with a Welsh coal mining theme…

We’ll round this week off with some cycle touring again – from Munich to Rome. It manages a nice mix of big views and coffee stops with rain, sweating and suffering…
