Video: Tour De Vegas

09.19.2013 //

Interbike is more than bikes and gear. It’s an experience: a mutant, sleep-deprived, mind-bending experience. Sorta like Las Vegas itself. We could slaughter a lot of nouns and verbs here in an attempt to summarize that experience, but we’d never do it justice…here’s a tour through some of the classic Vegas experiences–machine guns, porn super stores and all.

Exclusive: 2013 Bible Review–Yeti SB66c

09.16.2013 //

The Yeti SB66c has been called a “quiver-killer”. Of course, that’s been said of a lot of bikes, but is there another ultra-light, six pound all mountain bike that has been raced to a World Cup DH podium? Nope. The Yeti SB66c is a rare bike, no doubt about it–light and efficient enough to tackle all-day climbs, yet capable of smoothing the ugliest lines on technical descents.

09.14.2013 //

Just when you thought trials riding was impressive, but not terribly relevant to actually getting out and riding trails, Chris Akrigg comes out with this video that shows just how much better your daily ride could be if you had half of the man’s skills. A very cool video.

The Bakery: Season of Change

09.12.2013 //

The pits at races are full of campers and RV’s, kids and family pets, general chaos and parents who look around and exclaim “I wouldn’t change this for the world.” The scene is more National Lampoon than Norman Rockwell, but the opportunity to travel as a family and be inspired by their children’s commitment to a sport is all the reward needed to balance a parent’s devotion.

09.12.2013 //

Rocky Mountain’s athletes enjoy traveling all over the world to ride their bikes in unique, beautiful locations, but sometimes there’s something to be said for staying home–or at least staying on your home trails. This is a “stay cation” that most of us would kill to do.
