Join Cam McCaul and friends as they explore the South Island of New Zealand on the ultimate mountain biking road trip. After the Teva Slopestyle bike contest in Queenstown, Cam and pros Sam Pilgrim, Chad Kagy, Kelly McGarry, and Kurt Sorge hit the road in search of epic terrain from burly singletrack and concrete bowls to massive backcountry hips.

Video: Heavy Pedal Tour–Granby Ranch

Granby Ranch, formally known as Sol Vista, was a hidden gem where only bike ninjas would come and practice their big bike tricks. They had huge gap jumps and large wooden (drop) features. While a few of the features have been made more “user friendly” (i.e., tamed down a bit for a wider audience), Natty and Trey still found plenty of thrills at this Colorado bike park.

Day 5 and 6 are both long and relatively flat–but still brutal and long. It’s difficult to portray how vast this landscape is through photographs; I think you have to be here to truly experience the magnitude.

The track conditions on stage four of Genco Mongolia Bike Challenge were dry and fast and a tail wind followed the racers most of the day – welcome conditions from the wet, muddy conditions of the third stage.

Dirty Words: My Bike is a Camera

I feel like a camera on two wheels. That’s not a bad thing to be. I love the woods and I love my bikes. Having a camera allows me to save some of those great memories.

Stage Two of the 2013 Genco Mongolia Bike Challenge took the racers 78.3 miles (126 kilometers) through an increasingly remote area of Mongolia with 8,005 feet (2,440 meters) of climbing. The route followed the Tuul River, traversing the majestic forests of the Zamt Hills and ended at Jalman Camp.

It was an idea that, just like the rest of them, was spawned during an un-eventful evening. And, like most ideas, sat in the back of our mind, waiting for the right time to emerge. Before any of us knew it, April rolled around and we found ourselves hurriedly packing bikes and kit, ready to travel to the most un-likely of biking destinations, El Salvador.

Tested: Maxxis Ardent 2.4 x 29

09.04.2013 //

While the Ardent lacks the absolutely tenacious bite that’s made the Minion a favorite, this tire rolls a whole lot faster, weighs a whole lot less and is pretty outstanding in both wet and dry conditions. This, right here, is one of the best, unsung tires on the market.

Scott Markewitz has more mountain biking covers to his credit than any photographer alive and is always a threat in any kind of contest involving F-stops and action. This is the final entry from the 2013 Deep Summer Challenge and it was one of the most hooted and hollered for slideshows at the contest. Enjoy.
