Videos of the year
Its that time of year when its dark, wet and cold outside. A little video inspiration can go a long way. So ladies and gents here are my favourite videos of the year, in no particular order. If you have a video you would like added just post it in the comments section. Sit back and enjoy!
Brandon Semenuk unleashing the steaze -One of the most fluid and stylish riders around.
Martyn Ashton – Road Bike Party
Martyn was on the cover of loads of mountain bike mags when I was a kid, and thanks to this video going viral he has finally got the worldwide recognition he deserves. Well done Martyn!
Our film maker Rups made a few videos for us this, all of which were excellent. But for me this video is my favourite. I feel it really captures the fun of a dig weekend with testing and tweaking what has been built,
Chris Akrigg – The Turning Point
After suffering a horrendous shattered leg, Chris came back and made this video. All his vids are well worth a check and and a Hill In Spain is one of my all time favourites.
Gravel Pit Pillows – Aggy and the Tippie Brothers
Messing around on a bike and boards. If you are not having this much fun when you are riding then maybe you should rethink what you are doing. Brett Tippie has the most infectious laugh in the world, I would love to go for a ride and a few beers with him.
Red Bull Rampage
Quite simply insane. As the commentators described it “The matrix of gnar”. Plenty of matrix style slo mo’s.
Lacon de Catalonia
In my opinion Andreau Lacondeguy is the coolest man on earth. This shows why.
As it says on the tin. Drifting on trikes!
Moto 4 – The trailer
Quite simply the best trailer for the best video ever. There is even a couple of the sections available on the net. Well worth a watch.
Edgar Torronteras – Amazing whip, nearly 180 degrees! Madness!
Tom Pages – X fighters
Hot Wheels…… but real!
Ken Block – Gymkhana 5
It’s been said I drive like Ken Block on the way home from the pub. This shows it is completely untrue. How I wish my Hyundai Getz could do this. Not sure it would be very economic though!
Danny Hart – Champery 2011 World Champs
Yes I know it isn’t from this year but if you are not riding because of the weather then this shows that is not a good excuse. Get out and ride!
