If Scandinavian riders are affectionately called ‘The Scanners’, are Spanish riders allowed to be called ‘The Spanners’? Not in a mean way, but because judging from this 17 minute edit, the Spaniards are damn versatile when it comes to riding different terrain.
From their home turf to spots across the Alps, this edit has it all from ridiculous spins into backcountry lines and urban street madness from Oscar Valencia, Iker Fernandez, Pablo Infantes, Santi Cabrero, Eduardo Vicente Fiti, Carlos Hernandez and Adan Baserba.
The standout section for us has to be Iker Fernandez’s, closing segment. In our opinion, one of the hardest tricks to throw is a method in a backcountry line, as it’s super strange to throw a method whilst descending – it appears Iker’s got that one tied up at about 14:05 in.
The film is dedicated to Spanish rider Jorge Prieto, AKA Pinse. Ride on buddy.
