West Coast Style - Mountain Biking: The Way the West is Ridden. If you believe that once you learn to ride a bike you'll always know how, then clearly you've never tried riding the fabled trails of Vancouver's North Shore, where just staying upright is sometimes a major accomplishment.
But then again, chances are you've never seen a bicycle ridden the way it is in West Coast Style - Mountain Biking: The Way the West is Ridden. The brainchild of former Canadian downhill star Elladee Brown and Joan Jones, founder of the West Coast School of Mountain Biking, this video is part instructional treatise and part eye candy. It shows off the dazzling, highly technical moves that have been busting out of Canada's crucible of mountain biking, and then breaks them down and tells you how they're done.
Watching Brown and Jones ( not to mention Norco-Factory-Team trials stars like Robin Coope and Ryan Leech) is a lesson in "flow" - making your body at one with the bike and the fearsome terrain. Still, it's not all just mindless bunny-hopping from log ladder to swinging bridge - these riders can point 'em into the fall line and let 'em rip, too. There are over 20 techniques featured, from simple trackstands to launching wheelie drops off six-foot boulders.
Can you learn advanced mountain-biking technique by sitting in front of the TV and watching a video? Likely not. But by analyzing key moves like the manual front-wheel lift or the very cool tail-whip cornering method, you can crystallize them in your mind and then hit the trails and give them a try. - Steven Threndyle
