Has it really been a week already?
Luckily for us we’ve had a massive haul of video loot for this week’s smash and grab of Midweek Mini Movies. We’ve got the BC Bike Race in a fat bike style, Danny in Livigno with Hans, more Weir than an over-engineered river, Jedi, obsolete trail builders, a double helping of Yukon and sweet, sweet old computer music.
Set amidst the dramatic hills and calm waters of the UK's Lake District, a short film that takes us on an epic journey in a land with no shortage of amazing trail riding. Filmed by Sam Needham.
Mountain bike legends Danny MacAskill and Hans Rey check out the best (and secret) trails at the Italian alpine resort Livigno.
Planes, trains and automobiles! In sha’Allah. Ferry strikes, unplanned Chunnel journeys, biblically wet weather, lost luggage and a final Mojo van dash from Malaga to Marrakech in a day! What could go wrong? From Mojo.co.uk & EyesdownFilms.tv
For part two of the Morocco trip we really get into the backwaters of the Moroccan Atlas. The lads learn a lot about the ‘Rocc’ in Morocco (no comforting, deep loam berms here!). Also from Mojo.co.uk & EyesdownFilms.tv...
It’s said that a camera can’t adequately convey the steepness of terrain or the depth of the experience, but when you have riders the calibre of Mark Weir and Fabien Barel one-footing it down through the scree and the brush, you know it’s steep!
Some Obsolete members are traveling all around the world and the others are building and riding at the homespot.
Ex-pat cinematographer (ooh get him) Dan Barham gets passionate about Yukon people, culture and riding. An ad for Boreale Mountain Biking. But a very pretty ad.
This week we're gone for a different approach to winter fun. Ice climbing. Will Gadd continues to discover new and creative ways to explore the vertical world.
Thanks to everyone that sent in suggestions this week. If you’ve seen or made anything you reckon should be up here next time, the address is, as ever: firstname.lastname@example.org.
