Video: Great Days 3 – Chile Part 2 – Questioning Your Limits

This (somewhat graphic) video is the second of a three-part series by Smith Optics that brings you through the last few days of the Andes Pacifico Enduro stage race with an unexpected hospital visit to keep things exciting. A blind course makes it an even playing field, but also a game of question on how hard racers should and can push themselves around every turn. Viewer discretion is advised…if you go lightheaded at the sight of blood you SHOULD NOT WATCH the video. If not, take a look for a raw and real view into the highs and lows of enduro racing…

Video: Heavy Pedal Tour–Granby Ranch

09.09.2013

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.
