When it’s not dumping rain in the pacific northwest, snow flurries are settling, leaves are dumping off the trees and Old Man Winter seems to have shed his walker, colostomy bag and oxygen tanks–he’s pissed this time around and he’s coming early.

A man and his van, roaming the countryside… Unless you are a 1970s crime-solving superhero (they all seemed to roam America in vans, meting out justice while aided by chimpanzee sidekicks) that premise generally doesn’t lead to a happy ending. The man-and-his-van storyline has become the domain of serial killers, broken marriages and poor life choices. Unless, of course, you are Ryan Gardner. Check out the video to see what we mean.

Event: 2013 Brown County Breakdown Recap

10.02.2013 //

Text and photos by Richard Ries “New & Improved!” Yeah, yeah. Heard it before. But the organizers of the Brown County Breakdown, which went down this past weekend, have been making that claim ever since the inception of the event in 2005.

Kali was one of the first companies to offer a soft knee-guard that could truly be pedaled in all day without feeling like you’d strapped some kind of semi-fashionable torture device to your knee. How do they fare against the latest crop of pads? Here’s the review.

Exclusive: 2013 Heavy Pedal Tour–Crested Butte, Colorado

09.30.2013 //

Our third day in Crested Butte was beautiful, and the trails were perfectly tacky. Only the threatening thunder had us on our toes. We rode for the whole day. Breaking only to enjoy the wild raspberries and strawberries growing all over the mountain.

The Heavy Pedal Tour rolls into Crested Butte, Colorado only to find the kind of rain and cold that they’d hoped they’d left behind in the Pacific Northwest. Sticking out the storm, however, proved the right choice because on the third day, the sun came out, the trails were perfectly tacky and the trails were great. Check out the video.

Who’s going to win the Red Bull Rampage on October 13th? How the hell would we know? Rampage is big, scary and unpredictable all rolled up into one crazy event, so you’re guess is as good as ours. Red Bull, however, has put together a new series that gives you something to chew on between now and Rampage. In this episode of the new “Road to the Rampage” we take a look at Tyler McCaul, Kurt Sorge and Darren Berrecloth as they plot their approach to the big event.
