  1. Great vid, more more more like this please!!! (except for the melodrama, it didn't look serious, but what do I know, I'm no doctor 😛 )

  2. With you Neil. I crashed on ice This past Sunday and was able to get up and cycle home after a few minutes. Bruised left knee, thigh and shoulder pretty deeply. Recovering at home so best wishes for swift recovery to us both!!! Thanks for the great videos!

  3. Blake is a solid friend!! 2 things …. I would suggest you come to Mexico & race "Trans sierra Oaxaca". It's like the mexican Andes-Pacifico. 3 days of racing through thick jungle in millenary paths used by aborigineal people (pre America discovery by C. Colombus) & Down Taxco which is like the mexican rampage.

  7. I wish I can see you both in november in Valle de Bravo Mexico for the EpicEnduro… Get well Neil…

  8. Seriously, do you guys have someone new in charge of production? Spielberg? Tarrantino? This is another beautifully made video, absolutely brilliant. At around 18 minutes you could really feel for Neil and when Blake strapped his number onto his backpack…… Damn guys, this is next level stuff.

    So pleased to hear Neil is back on his feet, please look after him.

    What am I saying, he's got Blake in his corner, of course he's being looked after : )

  13. this is no freacking bike park, respect guys, proper true real original mtb!! almost mammouth, but this looks narrower and way more tricky

    Reply

  14. Wait a second, you can't end a video like that and NOT tell us how Neil's emergency surgery turned out!
    Oh, and I loved that bit at 20:58…that was great! Clever…and I fell for it! Nice!

  15. In Chile When you have a big crash people says: "you bought land" so Neil officially owns a little piece of Chile! Keep it up like this guys! Your videos are amazing! Hope to se you racing the Atacama desert!

  16. Everyone looks so miserable, that's what you get for riding in the dry dirt of the altiplano!

  17. GMBN This is one of the best videos that you guys have done!! Blake and Niel thanks for letting us be a part of the journey. Best wishes to Niel on a quick recovery…

  18. Great stuff! Your teams best cinematography yet. Great drone footage to show the true size of the course. Yes race more, but give neil a break thats to real injuries in 2 1/2 years. Make Doddy do one too.

    Reply

  19. What a kool kool video, man there were mashing fast bits and techy rocky bits, lovely film work, great multirotor footage, Blake – nice one man, it’s touches like that, which make you a mate to want to have. Neil you did finish matey – with that in mind, now your back and healing well, it’s a real shame your leg blew up man.
    Proper movie backdrops, and sweet mashing riding – what else can we ask for, to supply inspiration to get out and shred.

  21. Great video!! Love the drone shots. Sorry about Neil 😢 you guys need to have a look at the pioneer in NZ. 15000m of climbing in a week!

  22. You should do the Cape to Cape in Western Australia, 4 day stage race you would love it.

  23. Watching this for the 3rd time now… Neil was doing great, I wonder how he would’ve finished if he hadn’t gotten injured.

  29. Sport is not about competing only, it is more about crossing your own limits and sharing your passion with others. I think your video proves that. It is great to see you made MTB a way to bring out your best qualities. And have a blast!

  30. Best GMBN yet. Great content. Kudos to the Production Team. Very cool story with drama, lots of action, even a plot twist. And 9 minutes into it, that bird… just went poof? All good.

  31. Too bad Neil got crashed and kudos to Blake for bringing "him" to the finish! 😉
