It's just some smooth, unremarkable, and tame XC trails with mediocre views.

You're better off just downloading your favorite granny porn like usual.

Oh the irony.

Good flick. If I didn't know better I would say that was 7thheaven on blackcomb mountain. The terrain looks identical. (I know it isn't because you can't ride blackcomb yet)...

Cool vid

ROTFLMAO!

I always chuckle when folks can't reconcile the difficulty of the terrain/speed of riding with the flattening/slowing effects of video.

This version is even "less" worth it, since it's higher quality and 165 mb:

Thats why I gave up on pictures too. Steep is never seen, knarly looks lame, big drops look like curbs. Now when I watch vids I magnify it in my head and watch the riders ass (not in a perverted sense) There were some steep sections in that vid. Looked good to me...
