Operation Schnapps

Video Chuuch Be Easy
Date Feb 14, 2013

It’s raw, it’s amateur, and it’s part of mountain bike history. 2003, a time where your freeride bike and your dirt jump bike were still the same thing – and both disciplines were really still in their infancy. 24″ wheels had yet to be banished, and they were being ridden right off the mountain into the skatebowl. Operation Schnapps. You might need to wait for the weekend to watch the whole thing, but the history lesson is worth it.


Name that trail… what were you doing in 2003? (Also, if you felt so inclined, you could hook up a fresh Bicycle Rockers tee.)

Its crazy how much things have changed in a short 10 years, even the production of movies. I cant imagine where it will be in another 10.
