Best MTB Videos you've seen ?
…Although the bit at the start of that trailer cracks me up:”It’s raining, torriential downpour, lightning every 5 seconds, huge thunderclaps, driving winds: it’s insane out there!” – Just looks like a normal Mayhem to me…Posted 6 years agogingerssMember
Liked roam, I think I preferred seasons personally. There’s something inspiring about seeing people who can ride a bike far more skilfully than I’ll ever manage.
The sweary northerners vids are good for showing normal folk riding tricky stuff. I prefer the demonstration of riding ability aspect to the provocation aspect, intended or not.
I think Rupert likes them best of all 😉Posted 6 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I just watched Vast again, and I reckon it takes the title for me. The riding’s not the most jawdropping, not compared to your Collectives etc but it has a sense of humour, a great soundtrack, a good variety of interesting riding, and a better eye for the backdrop and situation than any others I can think of. Yep, pretty fab. And dirt cheap on itunes.
Can’t go too wrong with Seasons though.Posted 6 years agoatlazMember
I’m with Northwind. I LOVED Vast when I saw it at the same screening as Lifecycles. Lifecycles was beautifully made but didn’t make me want to ride my bike in the same way as Vast. I like the fact that although I know I’ll never ride as well as them, the riding seems a little closer to achievable than a lot of the other videos.

The Sprung vids were great. Got me into ‘proper’ mountain biking. Hilarious to watch now of course, some of that darth vader body armour… 🙂 Chainspotting was also watched to death.
On the interweb it’s this one as, for me, it totally encapsulates how much fun MTB is:

+100 for Dirt- JMC was a biking god! God rest his soul 😥
Such a feel good film, it always makes me want to go ride my bike.
Also +1 for ROAM and the Collective.
Might i add Cassette
While its not an MTB film it is small wheelers at their very jaw dropping best. Bloody good soundtrack too….Posted 6 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
There’s two types of MTB movie for me: those that amaze and those that inspire. I’ll never tire of seeing Mackaskill perform that front flip to flat off that bothy in Skye, nor of the big air movies; the kind of stuff that astounds me. As a couple of people said above, Vast is a good one to inspire since it combines the feel of a big movie with top riders, but in settings that are mostly realistic targets for the average rider. Ditto for Dirt.
I think Chris Askrigg manages to amaze and inspire better than anyone. There’s no way I’ll ever have 1% of his talent, but he makes me want to get on my bike more than anyone. A Hill in Spain is brilliant [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fohPU3pDpFU[/video]
My absolute very favourite at the moment is Danny Hart’s World Champs winning run from Champery though. It sends shivers through me

Some nice riding on a hardtail round whistler, definately putting a trip there on the bucket list!
I also remember a video i saw ages ago of some guys attempting dh on kids balance bikes, probably the funniest mtb vid i’ve seen, but I can’t find it now 🙁Posted 6 years ago
