Check out the curvature of the earth in the far horizon, seems unnatural. Shot with a wide angle lens?
Still..........awesome place and footage!!!

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

There were a lot of comments on the site arguing whether or not this video was "fake."

The original poster noted (in a comment that for some reason has since been removed) that it was filmed in a sand dune park in Colorado but I can't remember the name of it. He said the dunes are about 100 feet tall and the lens he used makes things seem a lot more dramatic than they really are.

Note that there don't seem to be any rocks visible anywhere in the footage. Still, a tumble down 100 feet of sand that's most likely frozen hard as a rock wouldn't be fun.

Hats off IMO. Snow covered sand counts. From the way the front wheel is being tossed around looks like some skill was involved to me.

Caught this one before, probably camera angles and fake foam rocks Be curious to know if they knew what they were getting into ahead of time. Think this gets the prize.
