    All I can say is WOW! :eek1 The whole time I was trying to figure out just how far the bottom was and if you went off the trail would you stop before you tumbled to base.

    Nice bit of video. You need some big balls, a good sense of balance and a total lack of agoraphobia to ride that I think.

    The lens exaggerates the edge significantly, still an impressive feat.

    Its go pro footage. Hes standing.

    The only thing to smell is his oily exhaust.

    Here is another report on ADV about the area posted 8 years ago!
    Neduro dug this up on another thread.

    I think the snow and moisture may have made the traction better.

    If the camera is fixed to the helmet it will move with the helmet, giving the impression that the helmet is still, in fact it is moving about all over the place - as you can see from the constantly shifting shadows and highlights on the helmet.

    :deal

    I can EASILY believe it's fake. I have two helmet cams, a contour and a vio. Even though the cameras are attached to my helmet, you can still watch the helmet rise and fall (and vibrate) according to the rock and rubble underneath the tires. The camera in this footage is too static to believe it was actual footage. Some top quality camera guys can maintain a very steady head with helmet cam footage, but given he's riding on ridge rubble I just don't see it. If the dude wants to settle the debate, why not do the ride again with a helmet cam and another camera getting a shot from the finish point as he rides toward the cameraman. Very simple to do and then the debate ends. Put me in the HIGHLY DOUBTFUL Category.

    Thanks for sharing your inability to use an apostrophe and the obviously fake video
    which had already been posted more than enough times elsewhere.

    What's next, are you going to share photos of your welfare check ?

    Wrong.

    The helmet in this video did not move at all despite the movement of the bike
    and rider. Are we supposed to believe that the rider's head and helmet are
    somehow completely disconnected from the rider's body , which is itself
    connected to the bike ? If that is the case, what we have here is far more interesting
    than the video itself. Of course the truth is that the video is a composite of several
    videos, and an obvious one at that.
