    My Magura Brakes Contest Video

    So, I went out yesterday afternoon to film my submission for the Magura Video contest. I had this idea and I wanted to pull it off, both from an "I want to win me some sweeet new brakes" perspective, but also from a creative fulfillment one as well. One guy, one camera, one bike and one beer. It was fun making this, but it was also kind of cathartic, as riding means more to me now than ever before, with the growing pressures of family and career. I had issues uploading the video to the Magura facebook page in time, so I'm not sure that I actually got my entry in the bag in time, but nonetheless I enjoyed the ride and thought I'd share it with y'all. Turn up the volume or put on some headphones since my voiceover is a little quiet at the end....

    If you don't win the Magura's save the video - if there's ever an Elixir contest you're a shoe in.

    when riding alone, nothing is more important than stopping.

    I like that!

    Kyle that is the best video I have seen for the contest. Wish I had heard about the contest earlier I would have loved to have entered. Sure hope that they let your video in...you deserve the brakes.

    Love it Kyle! Rensho's video was distracting

    Hope you guys get some MT8's. They are the best I have ever used. They're the ones on my BMC. What I couldn't believe is how many they were giving away. Most companies give away one or two sets in a promotion. 20 sets is a lot and they were not getting a lot of video submissions in the last week.

    They're now a big ad supporter of mtbr. They haven't advertised on the web before but they're really confident about this line. So I wanted to show them some Norcal props!

    LOL. Kyle's Crack almost had it's way with me, for sure. K-max got a voicemail notification about that ride. Too bad it was last-minute, or he could have demo'd that feature in person.

    Nice vid brah.

    If you don't win a set Kyle it must be rigged because your video kills the winners from week 1. Good job, I have the vision and creativity to do something like that I just don't have the patience!!!

    Awesome video Kyle! Looks like some great riding up there. I hope that was a Dale's Gub'Na.

    Great video Kyle.
    You have to win! It almost looks too pro. Nice use of the Gap too. Maybe midpen could use it for promotional purposes!

    Nice. They said it will take two weeks to get all the winners up. 25 entries were received in the last few days so that is a great push. They said they might give every entry some swag.

    damn. With msrp at 800$ for some mt8's, jerseys, and swag....magura is putting out some major bucks.

    Pretty cool to see a company doing that these days.

    It's not like they pay that much to build the brakes or make the parts.


    Hey Kmax, if you win, you should donate your current discs
