Manon Carpenter: Wildcat

There's a wildcat loose in the woods...

You have to applaud filmmaker Liam Murphy on this, his latest work, with Manon Carpenter. In a cyber space often rammed with unimaginative, production line rider edits featuring the same 'bro'd out' mix of 'shredding' and slow motion whips, he's produced something really fresh and imaginative.

Granted, World Cup DH starlet Manon Carpenter as a feline jungle beast isn't a bad initial concept but look deeper and there's substance to back it up. Imaginative angles, clever cuts and of course, Manon's flat-out riding style, all make this more than simply what the cat dragged in.

Sorry, we couldn't let this go without at least one cat pun...
