Youtube has become the new Internet TV, and it is as close and real to being live TV as it gets, except with edited footage! There are hundreds and thousands of dirt biking channels out there, but none of us have 12+ hours in the day to sit on the computer watching them all to find out which ones are the best. Well, at least most of us don’t…
I’ll show you my favorite Dirt Bike related channels from Youtube. Why? Because many of them deserve a lot of views after all of the hard work put in to making and editing them. Besides, it will give you more channels to subscribe to and you’ll be able to watch awesome motocross vids the minute they’re posted. Other than my own Channel for Motocross, the following are my Top Five channels that upload videos regularly that I look forward to watching.
999lazer posts weekly videos of local racers and motocross tracks. They are based in the UK, and are big fans of two-strokes. Why are they on this list? Not only is the footage good, but some of the edits are just plain entertaining, as well as some of the commentary from the riders themselves.
You want some of the sickest edits of off-road riding from a local filming duo? Team404 has been making professional motocross shorts, as well as photography for the past couple years. Check out some of their latest work; you won’t regret it!
Looking for some humor to enlighten your day? MisterBigWheel combines casual sarcasm with adventurous riding trips into the arctic lands of Alaska. If you enjoy dry humor and watching average Joe’s crash and break stuff, this is another great channel to subscribe to.
If you haven’t seen some of his videos already, you’ll find that Danny Stuart likes to take his filming and editing skills, and make some of the coolest videos of local and national pros riding. Whether it’s at his home track (MX207), or a secret riding spot, you’ll be in awe with the high-quality footage that he captures and edits. Music is something that most people don’t want to hear on a motocross video, but somehow Danny is able to pick the right songs that seem to flow well with his videos…
Also known for MXPTV, Matt Wozney is a full-time professional film-maker in the motocross industry. If you just want hardcore motocross footage with some of the best amateurs around the country, head on over to wozwick’s channel on Youtube. He uses the latest in technology for cameras, video editing, and puts together the finest footage of Motocross racing I’ve come across. Both two and four-stroke, mini’s to full-size bikes, he gets them all. For not being on TV, this is as close to Nationally Televised as it gets, and he was ever so close to bringing the Ricky Carmichael Amateur National to us live. I’d bet that he’ll want to try again in the near future…
The five channels listed above are not the only videos that I watch from. In fact, there are many more that I subscribe to for more great entertainment. The ones below also have a knack for getting great dirt bike footage. Reasons they didn’t quite make the cut could be that they don’t upload very often, they still need to sharpen their shooting skills, they occasionally fail to keep the audience captivated, or there just plain wasn’t enough room on the list… If you feel like a channel should be added to the list, feel free to leave a comment!
