Review: Absinthe Films' 'Twe12ve'

Absinthe Films' releases are something I look forward to every season. They always showcase a wide variety of riding styles, terrain, riders, and locations...and their filming and production is top shelf. I also always enjoy the soundtrack in Absinthe Films' releases. I've become a fan of quite a few bands that I've discovered from their videos. This season's release, Twe12ve, is exactly what I've come to expect from them...jaw dropping riding shot beautifully and set to the most fitting music. The riding is absolutely incredible. When I'm watching these guys (and girls) do what they do sometimes I think to myself "what the hell is going through their head when they're committing to doing this?" Ten to fifteen years ago we wouldn't have even considered most of what they're riding and doing as humanly possible...it just blows me away when I think about it. Honestly, everyone in this
video is incredible. But if I'd have to name a few rider's parts as "stand outs" I'd have to go with: Gigi Ruf, Nicolas Muller, Bode Merrill, JP Solberg, Wolfgang Nyvelt, Dan Brisse, Romain Demarchi, and as always Annie Boulanger. Go out to your local shop and purchase Twe12ve...and then go online to the Absinthe site and stock your shelf with some of their past releases, they all rule.
