CAN WORLD CUP DOWNHILL RIDERS PRODUCE EPIC MTB VIDEOS?
We all have our favourite bike park rippers, who get out there on their downhill rigs and produce amazing edits of them sending their favourite lines on their home trails. However, what we started to wonder is, can a World Cup Downhill racer produce a riding edit with as much style as any bike park hero out there?
To answer this question, we set 2 simple rules:
- The rider has to be current and have competed on the UCI Mountain Biking World Cup circuit in 2015.
- The edit had to be one intentionally filmed and produced for pure enjoyment, not simply footage from their world cup races throughout the season of them racing.
Here is what we found:
