I want to put some of the best riding — ever! — in one place for us mortals to study. I’m looking for clean shredding.

Check these out, and tell me what I missed!

    What did you miss? Anything by Danny Macaskill… I guess he’s technically a trials rider, but his video, “The Ridge,” is more mountain biking,and I think you can learn a thing or two from it about pumping terrain and body positioning, especially over steep terrain. That flip over the fence at the end is kind of cool, too.

    Having ridden those trails in Laguna (as opposed to say, Leogang), the speed at which Lopes is travelling is terrifying — in an awesome way.
