Freeride pioneer Hans 'No Way' Rey announced the release of a a DVD collection of his early adventue/mountian biking videos called Hans Reys Classic Videos Collection (1992 - 1997). These collectors edition contains Hans Classic 4 Videos, plus a recent interview about the making of these films.
The DVD includes Rey's original freeriding videos, which inspired many of todays top riders. These videos were the first of its kind, completely unlike the mountain-biking videos of the time (mostly short racing videos of cross-country and downhill races). "It used to be more interesting to watch grass grow than watch those old racing flicks," Rey said about the inspiration for his original series of films. "My videos were inspired by extreme skiing videos and surf films, etc.... a lot of the action and riding was quite ahead of its time, like riding skinies (log rides), tree rides, wall rides."
Included in the four-film set is "Level Vibes" in which Rey rides up the Dunn's River Waterfall in Jamaica, "Superb Urban" Riding in San Francisco and Laguna Beach, "Monkey See - Monkey Do" a how-to where Rey's student was mountain bike riding Chimpanze Mr. Jiggs and "Big Five," which includes a classic bike safari in Africa with Greg Herbold and a cutting edge urban session with Freestyler Pro Dave Voelker
