Stickied: The Rise 2011 in one post
First, the Unexpected Thursday videos might have slowed down a bit this year but they sure came out great, so let's start with them. According the Facebook likes, here are the top-3 UT videos of 2011:
Unexpected Thursday 26: The Rise X Made Of Stills comes first with 146 likes
Unexpected Thursday 25 comes second with 130 likes
Unexpected Thursday 21 comes third with 54 likes
Unexpected Thursday 23 needs a place here, just because the last trick is so sick!
Unexpected Thursday 22 was just so fun to make!
Unexpected Thursday 24 should also put a smile on your face!
Next, we made a bunch of interviews over the year, definitly lots of interesting things were said but a particular one stands out because the guy has been riding for so long and obviously has an interesting point of view on the sport:
Vision Of A Pioneer With Jeff Lenosky
Those videos also came out sick. From random Kraft Dinner clips to Matt's absolutely crazy latest video, theres something to satisfy anyone in there:
2011 Ray's MTB Roadtrip
Michel Plonka Winter Edit
Montreal Random Clips
Lunch Check with Matt Macduff
Matt Macduff - For The Kids
And finally, this last trip we went on was a blast. It was so much fun to travel in a van for a week and just camp anywhere and ride bikes. The Winnipeg Roadtrip video definitely deserves this spot!

Hopefully you enjoyed 2011 as much as we did! I feel like I could keep adding more videos to this post but I believe this is a good summary of 2011. So once again, thanks to each of you for making The Rise what it is, and stay tuned for 2012!
