This morning, I woke up and did my normal Monday routine. I started the coffee, warmed up the baby’s bottle and started to feed the little guy while watching some of the latest mountain bike videos to hit the web. I came across this vid on Pinkbike.com and it is unique to say the least.
I’ll be honest…I have never heard of using little bikes to find better lines on the trail, but the outcome is entertaining in video. The riding ability it takes to navigate tiny bikes (think kid BMX small) around a built DH course is pretty impressive. While they are not getting the fastest time down the track, they are certainly showing that you do not necessarily need all of that suspension to successfully ride technical mountain bike trails.
Started a project for a local film fest. The lines we built got snowed over the day before we headed up to film, so we scrambled and came up with this! Turns out it was quite popular at the film fest. Enjoy, and check out my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Oliver-Woodland-Films-and-Photography/188150844553783
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.
