weekend. Martin Soderstrom from Sweden took the event with a solid final run and went home with an extra $8,000 in his pocket. Another super fun event held by Winter Park! #CFFEST
After a stressfull week on the GXC circuit, the guys needed some down time out in St Tropez. Sun, sand and Bryceland's backside was the perfect cure, before heading home for National Champs... Which turned out to be a belter of a course, fast and dusty in the height of the British Summer... An epic race, but some bad luck for Peaty once again, check the full story inside...
It's an advertisement--but a pretty kick ass advertisement all the same. Okay, the shot of some dude's butt--that I could live without--but the line "Maybe you think it's all Red Bulls and high-fives, but it's not." got my attention. Nice writing. Good footage. If only more adverts were made like this, I might actually watch them. Nice work from the people at Backcountry.com
Here’s a review, a terribly subjective and opinionated judgement of Anthill’s "NotBad" movie.
One man is on a mission to stop you from riding like a baby...surprisingly, his solution involves bar ends.

Here are some answers.
A DH race weekend is a magical world, the kind of place you find if you stumble through the back of a wardrobe or fall down a rabbit hole. Only the Cheshire cat would be wearing a pajama suit and Alice would be manically adjusting her tire pressure. Men run around in women’s clothing, scale buildings naked and drop their pants on course like baboons in heat.
The first thing you notice about the EVO flat pedal is that it is freakishly thin. At a mere 11 millimeters at their thickest point, these things give you a hell of a lot more clearance than you average flat pedal—a huge plus if you live and ride amongst the roots and rocks or if you (like me) favor bikes with low bottom brackets.
It's a big time of the year for Enduro racing: July is the month where you have to score the big results and do your best at the most important race of the season.

Seb Kemp contemplates the meaning of love, life and the universe all through the Vaseline smeared lens that is News Of The Tweet.
You remember the long, lame vacations you took with your family as a kid--the trip to see the world's biggest cow pie or the visit to the Ear Wax Hall of Fame? Well, this isn't one of those vacations. Apparently, it pays to have a dad who rips.

Last weekend we packed our bags and headed to Telluride for a weekend of turquoise-shaded mayhem. It was the 2013 Yeti Cycles Tribe Gathering--this time, set within the beautiful Uncompahgre National Forest. Lots of riding. Lots of good food and great people and, of course, beer and mini bikes. The gallery tells the story.
