    Yeah I know it is about bikes and it is a video but what the heck, thought I'd post it here so the people that matter would see it.

    No, that's not me, I was busy eating easter eggs

    Filmed in our nations capital.

    Yep, probably two of our best xc riders.

    Looks like it would be an awfully fun ride, at a somewhat slower pace no doubt.

    Whichever it was, the rider in front seemed to be missing half his fork.

    That looks like a way fun trail to ride. When can I ride it?
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    The trails are Skyline, Luge and parts of the Downhill Track at Mt Stromlow, Canberra, Australia. The place was decimated by fire 10 years ago, several of the observatory buildings were destroyed, there was barely a tree left standing. The ACT government saw the opportunity they had with a clean slate and went about building Stromloforestpark a network of shared and single use trails. Pity we don't have anything like that locally.

    Wow... what a fantastic course, riding & video.
    When the rider shouted, "now that was a great turn" I was thinking the same thing.. real fast, yet tight & twisty.
    If Tone's was the lead rider, then I'm a star on Sweden's women's volleyball team.

    Clearly the image in my head of a "star on Sweden's women's volleyball team" does not match the image in your head...

    I'd have crashed about 1 minute in. Those guys are soooo slow.

    That bermed section after the bridge is called The Luge but is often referred to as the Toilet Bowl because blokes are often seen weeing all over it.

    Great video! Makes a great case against baggies. Looks like a fun course.

    I had to watch that video again. I kind of felt dirty watching that much bike porn twice.

    Those guys were flying and super smooth. I'm pretty sure he's on an anthem. I've seen that same top tube view before, but if he was on any bike that rider would be flying.

    Unfortunately I got to it too late after he edited it. But I did get a kick out of his edit line.
