    Come ride the Lost Sierra!

    You've probably heard of Downieville, now meet the passionate people that make those trails -and the events around them- so sweet. We spent a year making this short doc (and a bunch of promos and web content), and after premiering at the Classic this past weekend, finally get to share it.

    That was one of the coolest videos I have seen in a while. I really need to get up there and ride that, and yes spend money in that town! +rep for ya.

    Did anyone else watch that and feel like walking away from their job/mortgage/life to go live in the mountains and build trails?

    Great crew and fun times in the Lost Sierra. Thanks Hunter for the epic work! Mills, Elwell, Downieville and Lakes Basin are off the hook right now with the recent rain!

    Thank you Care Flight and Paul's Components for joining me at the Empire medical/aid station!

    BUMP! How does this thread rot for 3 days while other threads that are far less passionate go on and on?

    Anyway, I assume the main dude in the video is Greg Williams. Whoever he is, he has a permanent smile on his face.

    What a great story! I am jealous. I hope to someday help contribute to the tourism of the area with a visit there. The location, scenery, trails look awesome!

    Nice work on the video, too! There are not many videos on the web that will keep my attention for 25 minutes. But, that one did.
