I think I’ve ruined my YouTube recommended page by watching too many mountain biking videos, because now I just keep getting different history of mountain biking videos! That’s definitely not a complaint, but seeing a bunch of old documentaries and news stories about “klunkers” is definitely starting to feel a bit old.
None of those videos, however, have seemed to touch on the discipline of freeride mountain biking. I’ll admit I’d never thought much of it, but as someone who tends to enjoy the more creative sides of extreme sports, it was definitely a nice surprise to see a video covering that timeline.
There’s also a part of this video discussing how mountain bikers actually ride the wild runs you see in stuff like Red Bull Rampage. It might not be surprising or that interesting to the readers who have actually experienced a lot of downhill mountain biking, but to me, and I’m sure to the other less experienced readers, it’s pretty darn interesting.
