Midweek Movies.

by Matt Letch 15

I’m having a fantasy that there’s a direct correlation with the popularity of Singetrack’s mid week movies and a increase in sales of biscuits as happy workers blank out the drone of their tiresome boss and put aside the mindless never ending spreadsheet in front of them, and for a brief period are whisked away in to the virtual forest , the kinked handrail and this week viewers a near death experience!

First up – This is either going to fill your heart with joy at youth and all of it’s potential or make you grind your teeth that you’re nearly already dead and nowhere near as good as young Rowan Carpenter. (Music is ok Rowan but I’d go for something a little tougher)

So you’re out on your Sunday road ride ( WHY?) and feeling a little dispirited with your performance? May be this would help?

Bob sleigh is ace on Bob sleigh courses. Rubbish on bikes.


Mountain Bike Bobsled Run from Aaron Lutze on Vimeo.

More from Transition Bikes – Their new rider Even Turpen worth it just for 1.48 for that jump….

Here’s Brendan Looking more stylish than even John Galliano can. I want to roost out of corners!

We need some skating – Some arty skating ideally. Etnies Presents: Kyle Leeper, Rain or Shine – Shot By Mike Manzoori – Who used to skate a lot down at the Southbank back in the day fact fans.

Finally a life affirming near death experience from this skier..

  1. That’s my boy!!!!

  2. love the tour de france vid, never gets old

  3. Can’t believe the skier stands up. You just know he’s looking around for someone who saw it happen, like when you trip over your feet in the street. If nobody saw, it isn’t embarrassing.

  4. Remi Gaillard is a legend and should be knighted, given a Nobel prize and showered with virgins.

    Rowan’s vid was nice, but could only watch it with the music turned off – sorry…

  5. Ha ha, yeah, music is a little circumspect, Sam who filmed and edited it (very well) does listen to some cack!

  6. every time I see that jump on the Transition Bikes vid, I go ‘WAHEY!’

  7. Didn’t think I’d ever see a skate vid I enjoyed. loved that one though.

  8. I reckon it’s the K2 skis that save him ;o)

  9. ‘Tis Dangermouse (aka Gnarls Barkley) and Gemini, timeless!

  10. ive watched the 3 second shot, at 1.53 of the skateboard video, 10 times, and i just dont get it.

    physics says NO! (must be preloading the wood or some other backmagic)

  11. Music is ok Rowan but I’d go for something a little tougher

    Personally, i’d go for something a little less turd… Check the Transition vid for a lesson in music!

    Nice vid though, some of the camera work was excellent.

  12. Rowan is the rider, all filming, editing and music choice is Sam’s.

  13. Funnny Duffer, I much preferred Rowan’s music to the tosh on Transitions ;] ( I just wanted it more Hip Hop )Mr Horse don’t worry about he music we all can see your boy is a great little rider ;]


  14. absolutely cracking skate video, this boys good at what he does, as for the skier – that was a bit careless!!!

  15. Home trails at Gisburn, nice to see! 🙂
