    Corbets on a DH bike

    Looks like this was filmed last spring, so maybe people already know about it. But the video was dropped today, and I didnt see any other mention of it here.

    Super sketchy snow straightline out..

    Megavalanche w/o the crowds and with a funner entry.

    Does Durtschi normally goon his arms that way? "I'm a bird, flapping my way into the sky!"

    Corbets on a DH bike

    I saw that in Rogue Elements.
    In fact right before the movie, I told someone ďI donít think itís possible to downhill bike CorbetísĒ.
    I literally ate my foot.

    it's part of this years TGR ski movie. I thought it was pretty funny that the one segment of a ski movie that gets the crowd really fired up is a bike scene.

    It was cool, but seemed like Tim was having more fun for the most part.

    Corbets on a DH bike

    I always enjoy TGR film soundtracks.
    Turned out they have Spotify playlists.
    I particularly like electronic-pop duo from NYC called Overcoats.
    Their song Leave The Light On is in Rogue Elements.
    DH bike scene background music is Hi Ho by The War and Treaty.

    Yeah, I guess that is what I was getting at. Straightlining in snow and holding on for dear life.

    They show the front wheel stuffs in the end credits of the movie. Definitely entertaining.

    That's only because it's not a tough working enviroment like... a trading floor. PM Cono Este or 4matic for details.

    That scene's music is terrible. Fun looking time. I hope you didn't literally eat your foot. Would make the morning jog hard.
    No longer stuck.

    Cool idea, but aside from the Corbet's drop I didn't think it ended up working that well. Maybe it's the editing. Bikes look hilariously slow in all the overhead and head-on shots, and those are the ones they used the most. I actually lol'd on the shot where Durtschi straightlines through grass and the MTB makes some choppy squiggles on the adjacent snow.

    What's with the littering endorsement?
    "Dumping on Breck right now. Could be big if it doesn't stop." - fastfred
    "It has snowed, therefore Vail Pass is closed." - Kevo
    "This storm was a bust for most areas and the next two weeks doesnít look good." - WTF is dat
    "Gratz is saying pattern change Dec 20. Today's the 6th so.... two weeks." - Bean
    "Almost no snow so far, the Sunday/Monday storm looks like a dud, and a giant ridge is expected over the entire western half of the country for the next couple weeks. If the current forecast holds, we're looking at the lowest snowpack in at least the last 30 years according to today's Wasatch Weather Weenies post." - frosted flakes

    I didnít like it?
    It is not my type of music (make fun of me. I love hip hop) but I thought it worked for the scene.
    I appreciate the variety of music they used.

    Funny, I thought the drop in was the tamest part. The straightline down on snow after it had me puckered for sure..

    I'm including the straightline exit when I say I think the Corbet's drop worked. It's pucker-inducing because it includes a shot from the side and that perspective shows the speed (admittedly, that particular overhead shot looks pretty fast too). I'm sure the rest of it was gnarly brah, but the way it was edited doesn't really convey that IMO. /beatereditreviews

    Pretty fucking impressive IMO. They were hauling at the top after the drop in.

    My thought was the Rampage makes dropping Corbet's look like a blue square. Still impressive though.
