Ride 4 Fun - the agressive XC video

Hi!

After 8hours filming and riding (alone), and another hours editing and stuff, my new video is finished yet! Take a look:

VIDEO
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vo8tNRefJQ

I hope you like it. Because not everyone is a extreme mountainbiker, 99% of us are just cyclists, and there aren't many videos about that.

Respect from Portugal to all kinds of mountainbikers out there!
And always remember... Ride 4 Fun!

I'm 21, and since my 4º I love bikes, so... There is a lot of practicing. My bike is a Trek Fuel 90 - 2006. It has 80/130mm of travel (rear/front). It's good for me, but I want some more rear travel (like 130/140).
If you wanna see more about my bike see this video:

I liked your video. The LOL! captions were a nice touch. I am a XC mountain biker too... and I wear prescription glasses too! (As if you cared, LOL!)

At 3:43-3:46 you pull a stoppie where you change direction. I've been trying to learn how to do that but it's slow going, got any tips?

Sweet vid, 5 stars.

Well, first you need to practice a bit the normal stoppie. Then just go slowly, turn a bit, brake with front, and pull up your butt. It's importante to move and lift the bodie while turning and brake.

It's difficult to explain, it's more easy doing the stoppie

Thanks to all comment! That's a great positive feedback. Thanks

I didn't hit the camera.
The "tripoid" fell but I didn't touch it.
