    Yup... the 50 second mark is all i needed to see.

    When your right foot is touching your left crank arm, your nose is touching your headset, and your front tire is buzzing your back pocket I am sold.

    Yeah, Martin..! My favorite DJ/freeride/slopestyle rider...
    I also like his attitude towards competitions, he's just there to have fun! At Crankworks this year he was competing at the Speed and Style (and made it to the semis), Pumptrack (and made it to the semis), and had more runs than any other at best trick and then he almost won the big one (aka Joyride).
