In April 2013’s MBR (in the shops March 6), we’ve tracked down the new generation of pioneers who are changing our sport for the better. From entrepreneurs to engineers, photographers to world-class young riders, these are the people who are shaping a bright future for mountain biking.

One star of the piece is mates race organiser Nick Hamilton, a core member of the This Is Sheffield collective. We asked him for his favourite videos from the weird and wonderful events he’s put on over the years… and here they are.

Nick says, “Distilling down to favourite videos is hard, but these two are gold. Firstly, when Alex Rankin came up for a weekend and I put on the Man Wolfs night and Hardcore Hardtails race:

…and the first ever mass-start MegaDeath is a personal favourite.”
