Where the trail ends: Official trailer - gulp - sick!
Apologies if this is already posted somewhere. Really, it deserves a re-post.

Has anyone seen Strength in Numbers? The bar has really been raised in the last few years on action sports movies. Big budgets = great cinematography.All I want is to be hardcore.

You guys get the feeling that for MTBing right now is like the early 90's was for big mtn heli-skiing in AK?
Only when you tomahawk down dirt and rock instead of powder... you take a permanent dirt nap.

Degradation of dirt and rocks, in places that no one in the world goes.

jesus what a bunch of pathetic losers over there. Wahh...
Heavy Duty erosion is what makes those big lines cool, and erosion will over time remove any signs of human "influence" (obviously situation dependent on snow, rain, and other environmental factors, blah blah blah...)
That was wild to watch. Don't buy many non-racing bike flicks, but will prob pick this one up.

saw this at the Specialized global press launch- super badass.
sidenote- at one point I passed Berrecloth (he was waiting on the side of the trail). I kept looking over my shoulder; I've never ridden so scared in my life!

Honestly, that trailer looks bad ass, but lets be honest...I wouldn't look at that and think... Wow, how fun would that be. I like riding for the feel of a hard G-out while pinning a corner, catching air on the way to a buttery transition, or cleaning slower technical lines.
IMHO, this kind of riding just looks more fun to watch than to actually do, so I have a hard time believing there is more than a handful of people lining up for it. Especially when you add the cost to get to the big lines. If I'm paying a grand a day for heli time it better be deep pow, or if it's on a bike, the trails better be like catching Dirt Merchant the moment they reopen it after it's just been buffed and raked.

This is one reason why I'm not a big fan of the recent ski movies... they're all about the big mountain and skiing lines that 99.9% of us will never see in person. I'd rather see a guy skiing waist-deep powder at Silverton/Jackson/Snowbird or killing it in the trees. That's just me though, I guess.

^^^Every ski movie and bike movie has an "average joe" segment that most can relate to. You have to combine the ground-breaking with the sane to have a well balanced movie.

I'm more likely to do mini versions of the Rampage terrain than this.

you don't think most people skiing are just doing controlled skids?

Most bike movies are terrible... but this looks promising

The 360 off the step-up at about 2:09 gave me a bit of a boner.

That looked retarded. But fucking rad. It definitely crossed my mind that these guys are turning mountain biking into something akin to skiing.
