Youth Talent! Short MTB Video Shows Kids’ Bike, Video Skills

In the tiny town of Te Anau, New Zealand, a crew of preteen boys is building a mountain bike wonderland. Their dedication and skill are on display in this short video.

The southern island of New Zealand is a mountain biker’s dream — if you’re willing to work for it. And a group of local 11- to 13-year-olds is. They’ve been busy building trails and creating the ultimate downhill playground.

And when it’s too rainy or dark to be on the trails, they spend their time studying all things video. And their dedication shows.

This short and simple video puts both their growing mountain bike skill and burgeoning video-editing talent on display.
