There's so much good action on Instagram; photos, videos, Stories, even the ads can be decent! But the Instagram overlords are selective with what pops up in our feeds, so each week we're going to share our favourite Insta-vids to get you frothing for the weekend. If you like any, be sure to give them a follow!

And to make us feel a little better about our inabilities… he is human.
Some XC inspiration; Jose Hermida shows us that there is time to be made on the descents.

We recently announced the Junior DH World Champs team, so we’ll share some young gun shredding this week. Kids these days are all over the social medias.
Current Junior National Champion, Baxter Maiwald, has been in Europe racing World Cups in preparation for the World Champs in Cairns this September.
Baxter is pretty handy with a camera too, and had been producing some great little edits of his mates, like this one of Jack O’Hare.
And another of Jack by Baxter.
Oceania Champ, Josh Clark hit the Nico Vink line in Châtel Bike Park.
Another Baxter Maiwald edit, of Josh in Morzine. Check out the last jump!

As we mentioned in our Loosefest coverage, Queensland’s Remy Morton had a huge crash on the final hip jump; he’s pretty beaten up and is recovering in hospital. Here are some clips of him warming up at Loosefest and then styling up the big set. For more details and to help support his recovery, head to the Go Fund Me page created by his mates.
