5 Reasons Brage Vestavik’s Latest Video Is Brilliant

by 3

This video from Brage Vestavik is well worth a watch. Packed with good vibes, awesome riding, heavy metal music and… hardly any actual Brage. And yet it’s still great. Here’s why.

1. No Ego

Brage is hardly in it. Instead, he’s using his platform and influence to build some infrastructure for the community and showcase other riders. There are loads of kids riding too, and everyone looks like they’re having a great time. Stoked on bikes, cheering each other on rather than competing.


2. New Faces

It’s not the usual list of riders we see at many invitationals and freeride circuit events. We learn many of these new riders’ names and Instagram handles, so we can follow them.

3. Limited Branding

It’s a GT sponsored video, but not all the riders are on GT bikes. Props to GT for supporting the scene, regardless of the product.

4. Loads of Women

There are women absolutely shredding. And they’re not the women we’re seeing elsewhere in the big freeride scene events.


5. Less Fuss, More Riding

Hardly anyone is wearing actual mountain bike clothing. It’s like the 90s all over again. Just ride your bike.


And no, we don’t know why that very high drop had to be quite so skinny. Maybe wood was expensive? Anyway, as well as being great for all the above reasons, it’s got some seriously impressive riding. Enjoy.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Is this the new normal?  That’s just crazy and the drop is frightening.  Great vid though, the level people are at now is so high
