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.
From Fell To Forest
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.

Mojo Trail Diary, Morocco – Part One
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
Mojo Trail Diary, Morocco – Part Two
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…
Mojo Trail Diary, Morocco – Part Three
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!
Obsolete – Build and Ride at Home
Some Obsolete members are traveling all around the world and the others are building and riding at the homespot.
Boreale Mountain Biking – Promo
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.
Yukon, Canada, Mountain Bike Tour
Another blatant, yet beautifully shot advert for riding aboot in the Yukon. Canada, eh?
EpicTV Interviews: Matt Hunter
Dan Milner interviews Matt Hunter. 10 questions in 10 minutes.
UK Bike Skills – Video Blog 18
Tony ‘Jedi’ Doyle gets all retrospective on us.
This Way – Episode Four, Spray Ice.
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.
Gotye – Somebody That I Used to Know
Obviously we’re still using our old ZX81’s to photocopy and staple the mag together but if we weren’t we’d be making sweet music too.
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.
