Urban mountain biking often seems to be a full-on adrenaline rush complete with intense music, high speeds, and violent crashes. This video shifts that paradigm, focusing on the creative process, the locations, and the solitary moments of riding features most of would never dream of. It's even more amazing that rider Erik Hölperl filmed and edited this all himself.
From rider Erik Hölperl:
It seems like everything has been discovered by now, all continents, the oceans, and even space. As a young person, you could get the impression that we came a generation too late to discover something truly new. A feeling that must be overcome somehow. For me, looking for places that have been forgotten by time and give them a new purpose did just that. See something different in them, that others overlooked, something new. Capture their unique beauty for generations to come before some of those places decay and disappear forever. Find Beauty in things others believe to be ugly.
