Midweek Mini Movies

June 15, 2011

This week’s edition of small streaming movies is here; goodbye productivity, hello hiding your browser window behind a particularly impenetrable looking spreadsheet….

We’ll start this week off with MS Evil racing team manager Markus Stöckl setting a new, unofficial speed for mountain biking on gravel, hitting a rather terrifying 102.5mph down the side of a volcano in Nicaragua. Wonder what happened to those rubberised downhill bondage skinsuits the Mojo team had after the UCI banned them? Wonder no more.

The week-long TweedLove biking festival has been taking place in the Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders. There’s still time to head up there and catch the last few events before it finishes this weekend. In the meantime, here’s some video of the local riding scene to inspire you.

Mmm. Dust, whips and plenty of other good things in this short edit featuring Bernard Kerr on his Pivot Phoenix DH. Aspirational riding.

This edit has a complete lack of whips and dust but we really like it because of that. Barry Reid rides his old trails in Kilmorack, Inverness-shire. Reminds us why we get out and ride despite the grey skies and soggy ground…

A few pros headed down to the 2012 Olympic Course after the Dalby World Cup to have a sneaky ride of the course. Here’s what race day will look like from the perspective of Geoff Kabush’s groin…

Last week we brought you the triple backflip, this week we bring you the backflip triple tailwhip. Next week, who knows?

If you find BASE jumping a little dull for you then obviously you need to try wingsuit proximity flying. Simply dress up like a flying squirrel, find a cliff, jump off it and then try and get reaaaaaallllly close to the things you’re plummeting past.

It’s the yoof tearing up the trails in the Clyne Valley – Youth in DeClyne, geddit? A nice little edit sent in by Josh. We’re definitely going riding this afternoon now.

The 10th year of the Ritchey Bristol Bike Fest took place at Ashton Court last weekend and here’s the edit from the folks at Mercedes Benz Vito Sport. Loads of lovely winding singletrack…

The boys of WideOpenMag sent us in this banging edit from the Leogang World Cup. You can check out the second part here too…
