Felix Urbauer films mountain biker Andi Wittmann as he rips Austria’s trails in this sick reel.
Traction is hard to come by on gravelly mountain trails. Sliding through a rock-studded turn, side-knobs clawing for solid dirt to grip. Feather the brakes. Roll the bike to the side. The edge of a sheer drop comes closer and closer as you lean into the corner. Then the tires find their line, pressing you into the bicycle as it accelerates out of the corner. The moment is so exhilarating you almost miss the beauty all around you. Almost.
