    Influential is he? So is he the guy to blame for every modern MTB video showing dirt flying? We’re not shredding fresh pow here, folks. We almost always ride on land/trails that are owned by others. Show this 3 year old short film to any land manager and they’re likely to cringe and have second thoughts about our stewardship.

    There’s a whole generation of MTB rippers that think this is an OK way to ride (talking strictly about the intentionally flying dirt here). It is not an OK way to ride. I think we have a choice to clean up our act, and especially change what MTB videos portray, or we will likely start to lose riding opportunities.

    Sometimes we are are own worst enemies.
