Video: Cold Rolled, Chapter One

12.07.2013 //

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is no place for the faint of heart. When the snow dumps down in feet, rather than inches, the Yoopers just bust out bigger tires and get on with it. Imagine 15 miles of fast, flowy, bermed out single track, in the snow. That’s what Marquette’s Noquemanon Trails Network has built here, arguably the first trail of its kind.

Video: From Where We Stand–The Trailer

12.07.2013 //

“From Where We Stand” is about showing the world just how much beauty can be found in unexpected places….

Dirty Words: Ten Years After in Iraq

12.06.2013 //

I’ve been thinking about a kid I met near the Iraq-Iran border a little more than 10 years ago. I was in Kuwait taking care of logistics for USA TODAY reporters and photographers moving back and forth between the carnage in Bagdad and Fallujah and all those messed up places….

Video: Road to Rampage, Episode 7

12.05.2013 //

What separates guys who compete in Red Bull Rampage from the rest of us? Besides that obvious, yawning gulf in skills? It’s a mental thing–as this episode of “Road to Rampage” clearly illustrates.

Video: Yep, That’s Gotta Hurt

12.05.2013 //

Anyone who rides knows that a misplaced wheel and some pain are always just a millisecond away, but sometimes a video like this comes around and reminds you that it might be a good idea to re-read your Guide to Relocating Parts of Your Body, which has probably been collecting dust on your bookshelf.

12.03.2013 //

Southern California is a big place. Head east from Los Angeles and it doesn’t take more than an hour or two (depending on traffic, of course) before you run out of houses and into the great wide open. Mammoth Mountain sits out there in the Southern Sierra: tall, imposing and full of great trails. Here’s our ride report from the Heavy Pedal Tour 2013.

News: Wintertime Fat-Biking Documentary Nears Release

12.03.2013 //

Fat biking ain’t for everyone. Okay, that’s an understatement. Fat biking draws more ire and ridicule than anything shy of a recumbent. The big, heavy tires. The general lack of suspension. The sheer What the F*ck-ness of the whole enterprise….it simply leaves a lot of people sputtering angrily. A new documentary, however, will soon make the case for fat biking America’s frozen northlands.

Gallery: 2013 Heavy Pedal Tour – Mammoth Mountain

12.03.2013 //

Mammoth had its peak in the mid to late `90s and then things went quiet for awhile. That, however, is something the resort hopes to change–as evidenced by the rash of new trails they’ve put on the mountain in the hopes of luring riders. Here’s a glimpse of the goods.

12.03.2013 //

We were prepared to embrace the two-wheel drift on Mammoth’s infamous mountain of pumice. Along with judicious use of wood for drops, jumps, and wall rides, Mammoth does not suffer a lack of iconic features to challenge and excite mountain bikers of all skill levels.

Video: 12 Months, 12 Stories–Time to Ride

12.02.2013 //

With the racing season over, you might think that Jerome Clementz would take up residency on a couch somewhere–growing indolent and fat. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth. Clementz is still out there riding, roosting trails, defying exercise guru maxims about recovery periods… It looks like a very good life indeed.

Tested: 2014 Marin Attack Trail XT8

12.02.2013 //

Marin’s new Attack Trail XT8 would be a strong bike for someone who rides tight, technical terrain. The new Attack Trail is not as efficient and speedy a pedaler as some of the best all-mountain bikes, but it holds its own on climbs and makes for a competent all rounder.
