Strengths:    Erm....... its has some very cool trials riding, and a few good jumpy bits. Um... thats it.

Weaknesses:    The music is really bad. 'cos it was done by a Mountain Biking UK (who sponsor a race team) it has all their riders and friends in, not to mention half the staff. The team riders (who all look the same) are Ok, Steve Peat rules as ever. But the riding is a bit duff.

Bottom Line:   
I really wish i'd saved my money and bought something for my bike.

Bottom Line:   

This being a bit of an american web site most of you won't of heard of getta a grip video from the magazine mountain bike uk. The video was free on the cover one month and I decided to buy it for a laugh - the music is a bit grating but the action is a good laugh, the two martins trials stuff is good - seeing them ride down the concrete ramp next to the Clifton suspension bridge is amazing. The other stuff features Steve Peat before he got nabbed by GT - and before he got serious on training - witness him quaffing a bottle of champagne on the island of Lazaronte. Only downer is the lack of Rob 'the animal' Warner, although Chain spotting features him smashing the hell out of bikes and generally risking the lives of the crew in hire car. Altogether a good laugh video although Chain smoke is better still.
