Netflix has mountain bike videos!!!!
 
Seems like mostly downhill stuff but I've only rented two so far. I had no idea just how amazing the pro DH guys really are. I really think you'd need steel collar bones to do what they do and live to ride another day. The rain day races are really worth watching. I think there are about 15-20 bicycle related videos to check out.

Sweet.. the wife has Netflix so I'll try and bamboozle her into putting some in the queue.
What about the on-demand ones for xbox live? any of those available?

If that has anything to do with video games I am of no help to you. Lost interest after I beat the first Super Mario Bros game.

I've gotten a few from there. "24 Solo." and "Off Road to Athens." I liked 24 Solo the best.

The dirt jump and freeride hucks and stunts are interesting for a short period of time and then it just kinda gets repetitive.  What I really like is the downhill race footage and when they show guys just flowing through trails at warp speed.  I also like watching some of trials/street riding then tend to have a section of in many of the videos.
