If a picture’s worth a thousand words, this collection of mountain bike reaction gifs should be worth millions. It’s no big secret that a few seconds of looping video can express the exact emotion you were looking for… and we thought we’d apply that to the world of mountain biking.


So, without further ado, we present the Whistler Edition of NSMB’s MTB Reaction GIFs…

Driving to Whistler for opening day

Finding out your friend forgot his helmet at home

Passing noobs on Crank It Up

Dropping in on the Canadian Open rock roll opening day

When I pop a massive wheelie in the lift line

Riding Crank It Up after riding A-Line

Watching people ride off the big GLC drop

When a joey won’t pull over to let me by

Choosing the wrong place to stop on the trail

When someone farts in the gondola

Driving all the way from Vancouver and the chairlift is closed due to heavy rain

When the chairlift finally reopens

Finding out your friend has beers in the trunk when you get to the car

Following your friend off Crabapple Hits

British friend borrowed your bike

A-Line after Crankworx

Me learning tricks at the Airdome

When overhearing there is a new trail in the park

Dropping off my bike at the shop

Picking the wrong spot in the A-Line megatrain

Riding Una Moss on closing day
