    Along with all of Chris Akrigg's other vimeo videos! I think it's cool watching him ride everything from DH to trials. It's also really great to see him making a fast recovery from a bad injury.

    Oh, yeah. I forgot about those Nicolai videos. They're some of my favorites. Trials-style riding that I can identify with, even though I'll never match it.

    Those were awesome - thanks! Those Nicolai guys are amazingly smooth.

    This vid was on PB recently - urban DH in Santos, Brazil. I'd describe myself as mostly a trail/AM rider, but man, these are fun to watch.

    I like watching my videos too, but I also enjoy videos from other riders. Especially steep sufferfest climbs with original audio, which is rare in the mtb world from what I've seen so far. Road cyclists seem to post more of those, and even then they're not common.

    The reason I like videos like that is because they are inspiring. When I watch another rider's video of a tough climb with natural sound, it motivates me to ride harder on my next sufferfest. I love climbing, so that may have something to do with my preferences in videos.

    After last weekend's crash on the "super gnarly" section of trail near the end of the ride, I searched YouTube for other people's videos of the same section so I could study their technique and hopefully ride that section better next time, without crashing of course.

    The video in the thread I linked to above has a rider cleaning that section near the end. I also studied his technique.

    Just found this cool video. It technically isn't mtb'ing, but it's still worth watching.

    This is the Hart and Soul documentary about Danny Hart winning the 2011 World Downhill championships. It has some skillful riding in and is a good watch.

    These are a few videos that were in other threads on mtbr. I can never seem to find videos in older posts so I've linked them whilst I can still find them.

    There was a really good Youtube video of a German DH race from the 1990s about a year ago but I couldn't find it again.

    Post up your favorite Youtube, Vimeo, etc. videos here for some stoke. Backflip vids are totally perfect additions but I also want to see some other videos of other things too. Homemade ones would be the best!

    There was a video I saw a while back, can't seem to find it now - a bunch of guys I think in the Swiss Alps. There was as section of the ride that they are riding a 12" wide steel walkway that ran along the side of the mountain - no sides to it, it was just crazy.

    Some of the video's posted above are just amazing though! mad skills for sure!

    Here's something a little different. I still can't find the video I was thinking of but this 1992 Downhill World Cup race at La Bourboule shows how it should be done. Bar ends, brightly coloured tops and Tioga disk wheels. Watch out for the guy floating in the water at 3 minutes in. His fluorescent cycling jacket is acting as a buoyancy aid after he crashes.

    There are a few similar videos from other 1992 and 1993 downhill World Cup races too if you look at the Youtube video stream of "schwermetall2007".

    This video of a late 1950's Cyclo cross race is good also. No need to follow any sort of path. Just head cross country.

    This video of Andreu Lacondeguy dirt jumping is fairly ridiculous. The superman backflip is probably my favourite.

    Once you've finished jumping for the day you still have to get home. A good time to practice your wheelies but you need enough room to do it, such as down the 27.5km and 48 hairpin turns of the Stelvio Pass in Italy for instance. This video is of Simone Temperato. There are also some of him doing the same thing with no front wheel.

    If you get back to town early then a flight of stairs is a good obstacle to practice riding down.

    They're riding muddy trails! They're killing Mother Earth! Those lines are completely unsustainable! Awesome footage. "If you're in control, you're going too slow."

    Sweet. Appreciate the guy folding his wheel at :47, and straightening it at :53. That video also reminded me of a discussion on here about whether a certain trail was rideable on a cyclocross bike, and the abuse I took for suggesting that a slightly rocky trail would be okay on a cross bike...

    Did you mean this one?

    It's a path along the Garnitzenklamm Gorge in Austria.

    This is the Ima Trail in Bolivia where they're riding along the top of a mountain. It's a bit blurry but clearly isn't somewhere that you want to make any mistakes on.

    I can barely sit through a FOX/Marzocchi sponsored backflipping, big BMX bike, epileptically cut and edited 40 minute video but that Megavalanche video had me staring at my screen for an hour. The POV was great, the scenery was intense and it was good racing. Lots of passing, poor riding technique, stellar riding technique and the trails, Wow.

    Anyway, I don't want to bother flipping through all the vids so here is a vid of someone killing Whistler on a hardtail DH bike (Chromag of course).

    Yeah, I agree. I couldn't stop watching it. What a trail! (I'd just rather ride it without 1000 other crazies).
