Drop in.

Has anyone seen Drop in? It's sick. Unbelievable terrain, unbelievable riding.
Whats the best place you mountain bikers have ever been riding? I want to visit places like what I saw on this video. I hear there is a new series coming out soon too and I cant wait!

I have season one on dvd, never got around to ordering season two. It is a great series! That dvd has helped me get through many boring sessions on the trainer.

The best places I have ridden have been pisgah, moab, and West Virginia.

BC wins.

Also, I've ridden with most of the guys on Drop in, they are all REALLY cool and layed back. They have come to my town twice (kelowna).

I actually really liked season 3...I think its the best one...I've only seen 2 or so episodes of season 4 so I can't really comment on that one.

Drop in is aswome. I say a bit of season 2 before leaving to pick up my bike, and from buying some new brakes. (Magura SL Freeride, Set me back $200) Its a great show. They are only showing the old stuff becuase they stopped making the show I believe, or am I worng?

It would be so cool to be on Drop In. Get paid to ride your bike, get to ride all day with other cool riders. They are living the dream if you ask me.
