Midweek Mini Movies! 1/11

by Chipps 17

First up – what kind of back yard would you have if you were a world-class freerider? Let’s look at Paul Basagoitia’s place. Great riding and some incredible ‘Canon 7D on a model helicopter’ aerial shots too.

And now… Remember dusty trails? Some super-saturated shots from some anonymous dirt jumps somewhere…

Thought you were hardcore for going riding in our recent snow? How about Mike Curiak riding the whole Iditarod course unsupported

And did anyone come a cropper on the ice this winter? It could have been worse…

And now on bikes? (Thanks to road.cc)

And finally… just before you go out and spend £5K on model helicopters and digital cameras… make sure you can afford a spare…

  1. Whilst I did laugh heartily at the icy corner, you would have to be some sort of special swine not to warn the cyclists, put a sign up or some such.

  2. Perhaps they’d left the video on while they went out there with a bag of salt… Or perhaps not. Some good ‘wear a helmet!’ moments there.

  3. Wonder why that snow plough didn’t have snow chains on…..

  4. How bored of riding in the nearby big mountains do you have to be to prefer playing around in a field?

  5. My mate had a Faceplant on an ice patch last week, cost him £250 quid at the dentists!!

    Going to email him this link now!!

  6. The Iditatour was brilliant, thanks for that!

  7. Great videos this week nice on chaps!

  8. great vids. the fallers on the icy bend of hell (is there ice in hell?) were mainly on shopping bikes with narrow tyres that can’t help. amazing how painful even slow speed falls look, no wonder mine hurt so much!

  9. It’d be nice to start the new year with a copy of last years issue 62!

  10. I didn’t think that watching 2 minutes worth of people falling off on ice could be so much fun. Some people really going down like sacks of spuds…. awesome!

  11. One guy got around. Dude.

  12. “were mainly on shopping bikes with narrow tyres that can’t help”
    I can’t help thinking about the suitability of those bikes on ice, steering into a corner like that with the geometry those bikes have (weight right over the back) can’t be a great help?

  13. bad Kama. shame on you all:)

  14. Ice patch, 1min 36, wins drift crown

  15. To be fair, all that the video ‘Glissade du chasse-niege’ shows is pretty much how people park in that part of the world anyway. Ice or no ice.

  16. great choice of track on the ‘icy bend from hell clip’
    Let the bodies it the floor, let the bodies hit the floor etc! I’m allowed to laugh, after recovering from broken ribs in an identical situation. Nobody was filming then though

  17. Sprained my ankle in similar conditions just before christmas, still made me laugh though.
