You know Maelstrom, some of us live out in the eastern half of the US and have no clue as to what fruita is. I would have liked to know where this video was shot as well as Trailridebiker. Don't be so quick to think all of us even know what a fruita is.

By the way, where was this video shot? It would be great to go there some day because it was such an inspirational video. "fruita" means nothing to some of us.

Sorry, I guess I shouldn't know where platekill, Mt St anne or blue mountain is then? I just assumed Fruita was very self explanatory as it is a fairly famous spot mentioned in many mags as one of the best spots to ride. For me, its almost on par with knowing Marin or Utah (big generic reference there but the point is there) I have never set foot anywhere near it, and know of it. Oh and I googled it anyways because I didn't know what state it was in, it was a tossup haha

My mistake...

Pete great vid, and I do have a fast internet connection but I think everyone here has been downloading it, got a nice steady speed of 50k. Definately one of the spots I would like to hit up someday.

That was cool... at least for the few minutes of it I could watch. I started getting kind of sick; maybe it had something to do with all the tequila I had last night at my neighbor's Cinco de Mayo party. Maybe a beer will make me feel better?

Despite the fact that I hate Pete with a burning passion, I thought that video was awesome, I wish I could ride there.

Just finished watching it. Worth every bit. Just what I needed to get psyched for riding season.

Kinda funny seeing a guy riding in a Hawaiian shirt...
