#ThrowbackThursday - Off The Sickter Urban Action, JIB 2003 - bturman - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

So this happened. It might bring back fond memories for some, others will be glad that the sport survived it. Whatever your view, you've got to hand to the guys for some of the crazy moves. When was the last time you sent a huge crooked stair gap of doom or rode a four-inch wide concrete ledge in a manual?

    Why did he even bail at 4:00-ish? Aside from a harsh landing, surely he would have made it?
    Also the stair gap at 5:20 or so looks goddamn painful.

    Now it's called Urban DH in South America and Down-mall in Europe and has competitive side to it.

    Looks like current FGFS videos.

    (not that I wasn't guilty of "urban" BITD)

    It was so tight walking around the U of Utah and noticing those gaps from Jib, haha. I hope you guys can get the full film up, it's insanely tight.

    That shot of Super T nutting himself is so classic haha

    That is a great old vid. The backwards baseball cap is precious.

    i remember i saw this video for the first time four years ago on pinkbike, and this is what got me into down hill and freeride.

    Back when you would rock a trials line on a DH bike... or a DH line on a XC bike...
