This Edit Captures The Child-Like Joy of Mountain Biking

Whether it’s a kid’s first-ever day on a bike, or the last day of summer after a season of non-stop riding, the pure joy of mountain biking never dies. Even with small setbacks like a mechanical or an injury, that incredible feeling is re-discovered every time you hop aboard a bike. For filmmaker Kristina Wayte, portraying that sentiment was the focus of her entry in the RaceFace Creator’s Series, and she told the story of a young riper (Julia Lofqvist Traum) and her last day of summer.

It’s the type of film that we can all relate to, exploring the child-like joy and freedom of spending a day on two wheels, not to mention Julia’s sick riding at Duthie Hill Bike Park. Told through the unique lens of a comic book, it captures Julia’s obsession with the sport and the spirit it takes to succeed.

That’s especially true for random non-bike-related products, like in Danny Macaskill’s latest video.

Kids these days seem to be sending it big before their eighth birthday. Granted bike technology has progressed leaps and bounds, but it still takes a level of fearlessness to approach a technical rock garden or wooden wallride. It's case and point are six-year-old Crosby and seven-year-old Tya, who both love testing their limits on their bikes. Who knows, maybe they’ll be the next Brett Rheeder or Tahnee Seagrave?

We're used to seeing great edits from DJ Brandt, Hugo "Frixfrix" Frixtalon, and William Robert, but this one has raised the bar higher still. Shot in Colorado, Utah, BC, and the French Alps, this video is ten minutes of beautiful cinematography and rowdy tricks. From DJ Brandt ripping big-mountain lines in Utah to William Robert hitting a massive jump line in the Alps, it's all sick.  RELATED: Here Are Our Favorite Moments From Formation Well paired with a soundtrack featuring the likes of
