Aaron Gwin, Jack Moir and Neko Mulally Riding the Intense M29 6

The official Intense Factory Racing team video is alive. It features moving-picture action from IFR team launch last week. Sorry to Neko and Jack for only having Aaron's name in the thumbnail...there's just not enough room in the image for the full roster.

You'll definitely see that both Aaron Gwin and Neko Mulally feel right at home on their new M29 bikes while Jack Moir figures out the same frame with a completely different build from the IFR rig he rode last year. New suspension, new everything. There's even a hilarious goon clip of Gwin through the whoops to keep it light.

We knew the local shuttle trail to Gwin and Intense would be in the vid. It's a given. The steep piece of technical, bench-cut trail overlooks a lake, has awesome ruts in the winter time, and if you don't mind almost getting t-boned by lifted trucks doing 50mph near the turnout, is a great test lab because one of downhill (and now enduro's) all-time greatest riders helped make back in the day.

We were also glad to see that other higher-elevation trail (which has existed for at least 20 years) in the video. It was ridden by Voreis and other Mountain Dewy destroyers some two decades ago and is the same trail we used for our 29er Enduro Test Sessions this time last year. We have to feel our thorough and rigorous bike test helped the Intense team decide to use the same trail to showcase their World Cup talent. We kid, we kid, but holy crap do they haul some serious freight! So, when's Maribor?
