There are loads of sites that have videos... you don't want to pirate anything from a peer-to-peer, so stick with the legal stuff

Here are some links:

http://www.mtbkanata.com/video.html
http://www.pinkbike.com/modules/video/
http://www.petefagerlin.com/video_gallery.htm
http://www.iwantmymtb.com/2002.html

Of course there are many more, these are just some that I like.

Joe

A couple of hints. Look for previews of upcoming movies and also do searches on Kazaa...you can find a lot of free release mtb movies on kazaa. Not always pirate

I have a question, in downhill racing, is it just me or are the front tires bigger than the back ones?

Alot of times you will see larger front tires then rear. If any tire is going to break loose you want it to be the rear before the front so you would put more tread up there. It will also slow the steering down compared to having the same size tires on.

It is nothing new. We used to do it that way when I was riding BMX years ago.
