Video: This Isn’t Utah, This is MTB Freeride in China

There aren’t a whole lot of places in the world where big-mountain freeride mountain biking has a home. Southern Utah and British Columbia are the go-to venues, but lately we’ve been seeing a whole new crop of locations spring up. The ArcticNicaragua, and India are a few to name, but freerider Antoni Villoni took his riding to the next level in China.

Isn’t it funny how some of the best mountain bike edits don’t have an inch of singletrack in sight? Add Japanese street trials star Tomomi Nishikubo’s latest edit to that list, occupied by deities like Danny Macaskill, Fabio Wibmer and Brandon Semenuk (ok, we’ll admit there’s usually some dirt involved when he’s around). Nishikubo takes his trail bike to the streets of Japan, and lets his riding do the talking, interpreting urban features like few have done before. RELATED: Punch Through

So, in lieu of spending our energy in search of adrenaline, why not point it in a more productive and less risky direction?
