This video combines a lot of my favorite things: deep, green woods; mountain biking; a lunatic; and jaw-dropping finesse in wildly improbable conditions. There are a million (probably actually two million) mountain biking videos available to you via all the platforms on the interweb, but I picked this one for today, because I couldn’t take my eyes off it.
Most of what you get is finely edited jump lines on trails that have been painstakingly scraped out of the earth or featuring wooden constructions that amplify the radicality of the native environment. This little featurette takes the path of most resistance and simply features a gifted rider navigating a brutal and unmodified landscape.
He’s English by birth, but Evans is always a Welsh name, so there’s my bias showing up as well. Enjoy.
