So we have seen our fair share of MTB movies by this point. They are a staple in the industry and a dedicated spot in our movie collection. But…you have to admit…they have all become the same after awhile. We all love the gaps, the jumps and the drops, but at the end of the day…they are all productions that become somewhat predictable. They are still entertaining and they still exhibit some of the best riding we have ever seen. Hell…I still want to get out and shred every time I even thing about the original “The Collective” and that wasn’t even that long ago from 2004.
Red Bull set out to create something different and this trailer just sets it off. It brings mountain biking back to what it was in the beginning (minus the insane maneuvers the pros are doing in this clip)…just riding terrain and being creative with what is available. This is…by far…some of the most insane riding I have seen to date and it comes right back to mountain biking routes…creativity with unknown terrain.
I founded Bike198 back in 2007 and started riding bikes seriously in 1994. A lot has changed since that time and one of the greatest releases is still getting out on the bike and shredding trail or tearing up the road.
