- Harry Main (pro BMXer) MTB vid
I’ve been watching these videos with enjoyment. Love his enthusiasm for MTB, I’m feeding off of his stoke – as the kids used to say.
Have you seen Nyquist riding Whistler?Posted 6 months ago
Harry Main – phenomenal park BMX rider, has been putting up some MTB stuff on his youtube channel recently – This one at Farmer Johns in Marple is pretty good. Cool to see someone amazing at another discipline try something new – not bad for a first go at a drop off.
[some NSFW swearing]

He doesn’t ride comps anymore so I guess he doesn’t have the same pressure for progression as others.
As for his ‘garbage’ bikes, really? They seem fine to me. He rides them himself and also did a video where he cuts them up to show wall thickness etc.Posted 6 months ago
He’s just a business person at the end of the day.
Sound bloke I think.mehrMember
Nice to see someone skilled get enthused about MTB, though video progression to a crash/injury was quicker than Dave Jenvey 😀
One thing he was spot on about was just letting the bike do the work, nearly every crash i’ve seen off drop offs etc is when someone tries to yank the front of the bike up and it just does the opposite and pitches straight downPosted 6 months ago

In his case maybe someone had said you need to spring off the end of the drop, and of course his idea of a bunnyhop is a bit bigger than the average MTBer’s.
Did anyone post this yet?Posted 6 months ago
Just watched the ‘my first ride’ vid linked to from the one in the OP, where he’s at Grizedale red.
On a fire road climb:
“How long have we been out?”
Then finishing covered in mud, laughing at his mate’s crash and grinning – how everyone’s first ride should be 🙂Posted 6 months agomark90Member
I suspect he may have also been the first person to run 200psi in a 36.
It’s kinda weird to watch his riding, he obviously has amazing trick and jumping skills from BMX and is clearing jumps plenty of mountain bikers (myself included) would not even consider, yet rides the trails (rocks, roots, mud) like a total noob. No disrespect as he is clearly new to the sport. It’s just the odd mix of skills/no skills in the different aspects, unlike most riders who start from scratch in all areas and develop accordingly.Posted 6 months agoeddie11Subscriber
agree with mark90, i think he puts on some of his fear of big stuff of the youtube chanel as its nothing he hasn’t done on a bmx but the minute he hits mud, roots rocks he is genuinely all over the shop. its heartening. He’s good a swearing too, not everyone can do that, i like it.
drew bezanson has also tried this journey too from amazing bmx rider to mtb. Albeit at crankworx. Seemed to face pretty genuine struggles with bigger wheels and bigger jumpsPosted 6 months ago
