This MTB edit evinces several emotions but mainly disgust

Make sure you watch to the end

Dan Milner is under pressure

The pretentious MTB edit genre is a rich one, so it was with great anticipation that I pressed play on this little film from photographer and sometime BikeRadar contributor Dan Milner. 

I was not to be disappointed. Titled P.S.I., it's a rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish, eliciting feelings of disgust, horror and appalled-ness in the space of less than two minutes.

It is portentous and self-indulgent, with exactly enough slow-mo footage to feel like it's wasting my time. Good job, Dan.

What do you make of Dan's take on the struggle with the elements, and his "never ending quest for unobtainable highs"? And how about that ending?
