Bears, badgers and bunga bunga! In this web series, Trail Ninja Dan Milner takes a break from shooting cover shots for the world’s best mountain bike mags to give us the downlow on some of his favorite mountain biking destinations. From EpicTVadventure
CityCross Round One
CityCross is a new style of cyclocross racing. Taking inspiration from BMX, CityCross events are run in a moto format and over short compact courses in urban environments. Comprising such elements as man made obstacles, multiple lines, jumps, steps, alleyways, banks and alcohol shortcuts, CityCross brings fast, short and hard racing to the streets and forgotten pieces of land that form our cities and towns.
This is the very first round of CityCross from an old city tip in central Halifax, UK. From Morvélo Apparel

Night Riding Innerleithen’s Enduro Trails
We grabbed an opportunity to ride the unofficial enduro trails at Innerleithen before the Forestry Commission moved in to harvest. We were too late for Interstellar [ ;-( ] but we were able to do an evening’s filming on Prospacker.
Local riders, David Hodgson and Fraser Glass slip and slide their way down the steep muddy trail with a single light each. The only extra light was from anothe Full-Beam light mounted to the cable cam for those 3 shots.
Filmed and edited by Marc Crowley using a GH2 running Canis Majoris Night hack firmware and a single Panasonic 20mm Pancake Lens. A DIY Steadicam and Ghetto Cable Cam saw some action but most shots were from a Manfrotto Fluid Head Tripod.
The Bloody Lady of ?achtice Trail
