    That video is so epic haha! Me and my brother always watch it and piss ourselves laughing at the commentator, what a legend!

    And yeah, I love DH MTB mate! I own a 2007 Norco Atomik, I used to go out all the time to various DH venues, but not been riding for a few months as I had a huge crash and have not been able to pay for repairs yet, and also can't ride due to a knee injury.

    But I will be back on it soon!

    Most people don't understand how insanely dangerous DH MTB is, and how insanely skilled you have to be to go fast!

    ^At 1:14 he says "dirty cunt that turn" lol

    I'll be buying a new bike just next week. My current bike is/was just basic crap. It will be hardtail, as I don't really plan to do such crazy DH, I would call myself "hardly an amateur yet" haha, I also spend some % of time on tarmac, but next year I will ride more often and intense than with my old bike, the bike I buy costs about $1200 (sayin just to show it won't be utter crap and will last me a bit more).

    Those pros are really insane.

    Awesome man! I wish you all the best luck with your MTB adventure! $1200 should get you a really great hard tail, my full suspension Norco cost me about $800 second hand, and I have spent at least $500 on top upgrading and restoring it. It's a very expensive sport, but extremely fun.

    We went to a trail called Cwmcarn, it is in wales, it is absolutely INSANE! It's such an amazing run, it takes 4-6 minutes to do, but it is truly epic. Most of the way down I was not even in control, I was simply holding on and sh*tting in my pants! :D

    You can't see how ridiculously steep it is from a video, (much like all MTB videos, it doesn't look so bad until you are actually on the mountain), but you can see what an awesome course it is!

    This guy is very fast, so he completes it in 3 minutes 34 seconds, insane!



    And to those who think this doesn't look too bad, most of what this guy is riding on is so steep that it is extremely difficult to walk on let alone ride on. I had a huge crash where his bike is at 2:13, and I fell off a mini cliff and into a thorn bush, LOL!

    Here is a video I made of me doing a lap at the Nordschleife. GTR Evo is such epic fun, I think I have become addicted to the Nords!

    Really? Guess I have dirty mind & need to learn spoken english better lol..

    richiespeed13 - sick vid, I would go reaally slow most of the time..! I googled about your bike, $800 is seriously cheap, probably lucky deal or a bit old, as it costs over 2.5 more brand new..?

    Hi mate,

    This is the one I have:

    [​IMG]

    The newer ones are very expensive of course, but this model not so much. I still got it quite cheap, but there are many bargains to be found!

    :D

    This is 2007 model btw, so 5 years old.

    Here is a video me and the lads made a while back, this was my first ever session doing downhill MTB, on a crappy Carrera Banshee! As you can see we were a bunch of novices! We have all got much better since this video, I promise! ;)

    And that is me at 1:20, failing epicly, LOL!

    Hehe, like the subtitles, where are next episodes lol
    I haven't personally been to any actual track nor event yet, just going down in random forests.. Didn't have the machine for it and not enough interest, this will change soon :D
    For the first time I'll have proper air spring fork (Im pretty heavy, a problem for coil), hydro brakes, really strong frame etc., like I said, I'm hardly even newbie - yet...


    Anyway, let's move on to cars for a while again.. this amateur event is almost (or surely?) more interesting to watch than wrc hehe

    @osella, video looks epic, it's 1am and I am up for work at 6, but I just can't sleep so I think I'll make a cup of tea and watch that instead! :D

    @cdnracer, that Pagani is a BEAST! It's funny you should speak of it, as I am uploading a video of me lapping the nords in it in gtr evo right now! :)

    And norco ftwww

    The Norco is very mean looking indeed tjc, the newer ones look mental!

    And Top Gear is epic Zeos, love that show.

    Here is my lap of the Nords in the Zonda R. If you have GTR Evo and haven't tried this combo yet, do it now! :D
