(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.
