Nice vid. I like how they put in a few outtakes near the ends to show they're human.

WOW! They go places I could only walk!

...though it does inspire...if I had one of those KTMs...and I was a different person...and I had skills...perhaps I could hope to recreate the outtakes where they make mistakes... ah, the dream...

I hate to be that guy because they're awesome riders...but it looks like they're riding on mountain bike trails. I know around me there are some dirtbikers who do that and they absolutely trash the trails because all the jumps and berms are designed for mountain bikes, and a lot of what they were on while on that singletrack looked like it was mountain bike sized...

There are a few places near me that are constantly repairing trails that get destroyed be people who take quads and dirt bikes through them, and it really sucks because they don't respect the work we've put into the trails.

If I'm wrong though, I'm sorry, it is an awesome video...and they could be multi use trails too, who knows!

Great video! Yesterday I discovered the Red Bull Signature series on youtube and they had some of those hard enduro races. Crazy stuff. Almost everyone is running the 300cc two strokes because they are the optimum combination of power and light weight.
