Definitely agree that the DH bike is overkill. The trails in this vid almost look like XC trails here in the States. I'll be vacationing to the PI in about a week and I'm bringing my SB-66C so I will soon have an opinion about what PI mountain biking is like.Pretty cool riding from the young man. Just curious... why would he like to get sponsorship? Is there a race series in the Philippines? He obviously has the means since he has a tricked out Norco Aurum.
Lastly, I think those trails are nice but a DH bike might be a tad overkill. He was doing a lot of pedaling on the video and looked spent in the end. Enduro? =)
