Episode 5 of "Beyond the Bike" takes an intimate look at British racer Danny Hart. The downhill ripper opens up about the stresses of being a professional mountain biker, what has changed since his 2011 World Championships win and what he sacrifices to pursue his dreams.

Giant Bicycles has really stepped up its game this year in the longer-travel department, launching a completely redesigned 6-inch-travel Reign that was built around 27.5-inch wheels.
