Kirt Voreis rips
(But you already know that.)
When I imagine riding trails, this is what I look like.
Check out this Fox Head video of Kirt Voreis shredding NorCal on his Specialized Enduro.
Kirt clearly has an immense skills base. All the core stuff is dialed — plus he’s super creative and he’s having fun. What a clever way to sell riding gear (and bikes).
0:31 – Jumping into a corner and using the heavy load to rail that sucker.
0:37 – Just a sweet transfer. Note how he folds the heaviness of the landing seamlessly into the corner.
0:42 – Big angles in the bermed right and flat left. Also a nice moto foot-out style.
1:05 – Tight, powerful side-to-side transitions. You can learn this on pavement. How to pump a flat surface
1:29 – Smooth pickup-to-semi-roll-semi-hop. This subtle move is a sure sign of BMX fu — and he blends it right in.
1:44 – Aggressive transition from manualing to sticking a corner. Watch the range of motion!

Lately I’ve been watching New World Disorder 10 while I do intervals on the trainer. The whole video is pretty amazing, but my favorite section is Voreis rallying a trail bike. Check out NWD10.

Lee if you haven’t checked out the new coastal crew video “from the inside out” – it’s worth the 9.99 download on iTunes just for the Stevie Smith footage. I only wish there was more of it.
Amazing trail skills, laid down with enormous commitment, power, and elegance. Every time I watch it I come away shaking my head in disbelief. Just wow.
Did you ever think anyone would use the term elegance to describe DH mountain biking? Give it a watch.
Another great demonstration of finesse and elegance on the trails is this one here of Brendon Semenuk
from 2:40 where he switches to his short travel bike all the way to the end is truly amazing. So much flow and control.
Holy cow. Can you imagine how fun that must be?
And those manuals while cornering … so rad.
Dude, I just watched From The Inside Out on the trainer.
The whole movie is impressive, but to me — as a trail rider — the Stevie Smith segment is SO RAD. Commitment, power and elegance. For sure.
