    Favorite Internet Mountain Biking Videos

    I have been a little down lately. I find the current crop of mountain biking videos offers too much slow-mo upside down back flipping on big BMX bikes and too little, POV cam, sexy wire cam and all out fast runs down real trails. I have a hard time living vicariously through the endless back flip DJ vids but the ones that are close to mountain biking I can imagine, if I had the right gear and all, being able to do.

    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:

    another...mostly for the amazing dog. As one of the few non pathetic Youtube commentators said "Put a camera on that damn dog!" That would indeed be even more epic.

    Action Heroes was a free, full length german MTB movie that i thought was pretty awesome.

    The Unknown "Action Heroes" - Streamable 36 min Movie

    i loved the combo of music, editing--i mean it looks super professional and gets me stoked to ride.

    I love that Chilean downhill video (1st video). So much going on there ... why is the guy wearing a pinstripe suit?Just some huge drops in there, too. I've been in that exact area of Valpo and can attest that it is very steep.

    This has to be the best helmet cam video of the 2011 Megavalanche race that I've seen. Parts 1 & 2 are mostly the rocky mountain top section and then parts 3 & 4 are through woodland lower down. Watch it full screen for the best view.

    It's the full 1hr+ descent of Alpe D'Huez and the helmet cam is mounted at around eye level for a natural perspective so that you can see exactly where he is looking.

    <iframe width="640" height="480" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qfwTlTxhbG0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Part 3: Megavalanche 2011 Top Race (Part 3 of 4) - YouTube
    Part 4: Megavalanche 2011 Top Race (Part 4 of 4) - YouTube

    That video is from the 2011 Megavalanche at Alpe D'Huez in the French Alps. It's part of a mass start downhill series called the Avalanche Cup.

    In the Megavalanche there are 6 qualifying heats of 250 riders who all start at the same time and then have to choose their own route down the mountain. The 45 fastest riders from each qualifying heat go through to the final.

    Here are some good videos of riding singletrack in the French Alps too:

    Well this is either going to back fire or work out. Rockcrusher, I will apologize in advance if you dislike this or anyone else. I was bored and it's winter so, I chopped up something from lifecycles and threw it together. IDK, I like it, makes me want to ride and I think it fits here.

    Everyone should rent "Ride The Divide" documentary. Banff Canada to the Mexico border. 2700 miles, 200,000 feet of climb, approx 1 month to complete, NO support. Great movie for MTB enthusiasts.

    I like it. Although I would've preferred more metal, less dubstep, and less slo-mo scenes.

    What's not to like about that? The video is fantastic. Although I wouldn't choose to listen to that type of music(heck I'm 53), it fits the video fine. Great job!!

    Hey, how bout some Rep? Someone trashed me along the way here for ??

    Was he making motorcycle sounds? I do that all the time, especially on the flowy braapy sections! Nice work on the pedal bike too!

    This was a PinkBike VOD a few weeks ago, and it quickly became my favorite MTB video. There's no gratuitous slow motion, endless back flips, etc. It's worth watching on Vimeo in HD.

    I can't post a link since I don't have a high enough post count, but just look up "Evan Schwartz - Ride the Fall" on Vimeo.

    This guy makes the best videos I have seen. Lots of third person shots and wire cams. All HD.

    Watch his videos and you will want to go ride now.

    HucknRoll usually puts pretty good videos up on their Facebook. They've put up a few Colombian urban downhill videos recently. This is pretty good viewing:

    Not mountain biking per se but about as akin to mountain biking as one can get on a motorcycle. Love the skills this guy has and the fact that it isn't a tatooed, pieced Metal Mullisha ******bag doing back flips but someone that has not only balls but mad skills too.

    I don't know if they have anything on the web, but the "Earthed" series of DVD's seems pretty cool. A lot less tailwhipping and backflipping and a lot more world cup downhill footage and 4x. I like it much more than the freeride vids.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).
