new type of mtb racing

This looks really fun. You don't need to have any really big hills to have it on. You just need skills.

This kind of reminds me of a BMX movie I saw when I was a kid called Rad Racing. The final race was a big loop with lots of manmade technical obsticals, at least I remember something like that.

This looks like an entertaining diversion but I think I would get burned out watching it after a few runs.

I think this event is pretty cool. What type of bike racing do you think would be less boring to watch?


The movie is called Rad btw.

We had a race like that in Asheville a few years back. It involved some old cars,skinnies,teeters,box truck wall ride,doubles,and some other stuff. It was a lot of fun. I'll see if I can find some pics.

It's funny because his explanation sounded really similar to how one explains the design of an autocross course.
