Yes. It goes something like this:

"There may be a couple good clips, but there's always the standout crash clip that is the most memorable visual of the commercial and that's why mountain biking is used. For crashes."

If you look at a NASCAR promo, a sport which is heavily sponsored, you'll see a whole mess of crashes. That's...more

First, NOT going to complain about word count. Nice to read some thought out, articulate expression instead of a 250 word caption. Thank you.

As for wants - better bikes for less money?

How about maybe just the same bikes for less money? Bikes are pretty fancy nowadays, and besides wheel size...more

I can't think of a 5 minute period in my life prior to watching this that I've laughed and cringed as hard as I did as often as I did. Proper soundtrack as well!

I'm also amazed that nobody tried the high line in that first section. Looks like it was a relatively smooth and straight line...as much as any line could have been on those rigs.

They are actually downhillers which, back then, also did XC, and Dual-slalom. Others even raced road, track, bmx and even rode trials. DH was insanely infantile and fringe back then. As kidwoo mentioned, Palmer essentially gave DH the wake-up-call it had been waiting for.

Unreal! I'd be thrashed by the 3rd lap...if I even made it that far. Mad props to you both - and to those behind the scenes as well.

Hahaha...the one I tried to wheelie was a ghetto-tech one some guy built up from scratch. Read - not dialed at all.

There was one move in there that had nothing to do with the bike that really impressed me. When he first gets to the slabs of rock, he does a big up, lands on rear wheel, pedals the wheele into a j-zap up the next big shelf. Tech.
