I really can't tell whether Harry Main is a complete and utter bellend or just from Liverpool.

From the outro of that video I see he has firmly got on board with the concept of clickbait.

Riding was not shit.

A couple of years ago I didn't really like him, his vlogs and only really watched the clips of him from competitions and Mania 1 & 2. It's been of recent (this year really) where he's actually coming across much better in my eyes and I just like how positive towards all the sports he has been. Watching him just get on the downhill bike and then this has been really fun. Compared to the total shambled idea's he's had this year with the likes of scooter bars on crap.

He did a vlog from havoc bike park where he did the big drop off on his full susser. You can tell he's got a fair bit of skill, but as he says he's never done it before on an mtb, so he's a bit shaky. Wish I was as shaky as he is on it, love to see him race a dh bike

Just been catching up on a few of his blogs. Pretty entertaining and he's clearly got the skills and the bottle!

Yeah, I think it's a similar deal to Sam Pilgrim getting on a trials bike and instantly being able to do some pretty legit stuff.  Backwheeling 'The Log' at Barrow Farm was really impressive!

Legitimately pissed me off, or maybe I should get over my fear of non straight edge objects.

I also liked the vlogs of him riding street. He's very park and ramps so him riding Liverpool street was nice to see. I'd hoped for more of that but it never happened.

I do wish he wouldn't use such OTT sensationalist titles for his videos. 'I NEARLY DIED!!!', 'INSANE PITBIKE!!!', 'CRAAAAZY MTB CRASH!'... chill man, chill.

I pretty much avoid any channels that use click bait titles, as such I've not seen any of his videos (yet).

Theres another guy Ryan Taylor who's a BMX rider, he has to be one of the worst clickbait YouTubers ever.  "ARRESTED for riding my BMX in  a shopping mall". Theres honestly like 15 seconds of footage of him being "arrested" in a 20 minute video.

Can not stand Ryan Taylor, just an idiot who's found out he can make youtube money pissing off people doing their jobs for the most part. I wish I could block seeing channels in my recommend because it annoys me that it's even a thing.

Non-skippable 30sec pre-roll ads.  Grumble grumble.

Moving to N. Wales in winter is not the way to do it...

All capitals, clickbait titles and now all these stupid emojis... I suppose once one or two start doing it, the rest just copy.

It's interesting how things have turned out. I was wondering who the hell even buys Mafia BMX bikes until I started seeing loads of little park rats with them. In the old days BMX media was pretty much the magazines and VHS cassettes. I think that kept the scene cohesive in a way. Now people like Harry Main, Taylor, Adam LZ etc can make a perfectly good living outside of the 'scene'. In some ways you might argue this is good, but at the same time everything seems a little cheapened somehow.

PS for those who don't like Ryan Taylor...

That was kind of enjoyable! It's people like him who give bikers a bad name. Not only is he going round pissing people off for no reason other than views, he is inspiring all the kids who watch his videos to do the same. Why can't he spend his time making a sweet edit instead of jumping into swimming pools, or breaking into theme parks. Shame.
