Move over Sedona’s bonkers White Line trail there’s a new trail in town.
You have to watch this video taken by Alpinepics.com of a rider teetering his way down a track on the Mitterhorn.
If you’re near a proper computer screen go there to watch it. It deserves more than just your phone screen.
Specifically you HAVE to watch the drone shot at 1min 24secs
It’s the most mind-scrambling footage of mountain biking that we think we have ever seen.
The drone shot goes on for quite a while. And every second of it is riveting. You’re waiting for him to dab. Or fall. And die.
The creators of the vid say: “The Mitterhorn is in the Loferer Steinbergen, above the little village of Lofer. It’s a pretty steep climb up to the very comfortable Schmidt-Zabierow-Hütte and from there it’s about 600m to the summit. We stayed overnight and took still images on the first evening in perfect light. The weather forecast for the whole night and the following morning was cloudless and, because the descent is on the East side, we opted to do all filming the following morning at sunrise. Unfortunately we had no luck, the summit was covered in mist early the next morning and we shivered for over an hour waiting for it to clear on the summit ( we had very few clothes because the forecast was so good ). So the spectacular filming from the summit in sunrise light didn’t quite make it and only when we got down lower again the sun started to appear. There’s a long drone section in the middle, it’s a bit shaky since it was windy and I had some issues with the drone’s gps connection, but I’ve included it in it’s entirety since the view from above shows off the exposure of this trail so much. Thanks to the wonderful ladies at the hut for their support, it’s unusual in Austria to get such constructiveness and encouragement with steep vertride on the mountain bike.”
