    The Czech police chasing a mountain bike on the highway. First the mountain bike is slipstreaming the lorry at 100kph before using some offroad skills to leave them behind.

    This is worth a share IMO. Sorry it's not a MTB video, there has not been any good ones lately.

    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.

    I mean Danny MacSkill is fantastic and all, skilled beyond doubt but there is no way I will ever be riding a cable. Ever.

    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!

    (Please when embedding videos make sure that they aren't set to autoplay).

    My addition:
    That drop at 2:24 makes my palms sweat every time I see it. Maybe I'm just a big fat wuss... well, yes, I am.

    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.


    1992 10 14 DH WC La Bourboule ; Episode 7 - YouTube

    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.

    We Are Family Films: Episode 1 ft Andreu Lacondeguy from We Are Family Films on Vimeo.



    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).
