been browsing the net looking for some nice vids that include some nice riding, but DON'T include thrashy music and RAD sh!t. just the sort of riding that 95% partake in, that is, just riding along (more or less).
but it strikes me that peoples idea of FREERIDE is somewhat skewed.
take THIS VIDEO for example. what is freeridey about it? the fact they've got long travel bikes and yellow rims?
a mate of mine used to think he was a 'freerider' with his big fork, full face, leg and arm protection. i think he's slowly realised that most of the riding he did was just that, riding. we've weaned him off the full face and the double crown fork and steered him in a more 'riding' direction, one where one actually rides as opposed to having to push up each incline.
another example of a twisted genre. not once do his frigging wheels leave the ground.
