News: Mammoth Mountain Seeks a Spark in Kamikaze Reboot

10.07.2013

To most mountain bikers, Mammoth Mountain needs no introduction. This is, afterall, the ski resort that pioneered lift-accessed riding and, in turn, transformed a non-descript, dusty access road into one of the most famous race courses in the world. Now, as Mammoth Mountain emerges from a difficult past few years, it wants to revive its reputation as a world-class cycling destination in order to attract more visitors and drum up business in the financially-strapped mountain community.

Long-Term Test: Five Ten Impact High

10.04.2013

The world may have gravitated towards lighter, sleeker, sexier shoes (and Five Ten, itself, will soon offer that flavor of Impact), but I’m stuck on these clunky, sticky moon boots. They’ll rot off of my feet before I give them up. Here's why...

Video: The Making of NotBad

10.04.2013

We've covered Anthill Films' NotBad several times on this site. There's a reason for that--it's a hell of a movie. What did it take to actually produce NotBad? This video is the answer to that question.

Video: Surviving a Force of Nature

10.03.2013

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. Which means that the window on easy-riding-days is rapidly closing. Hello, mud, crippled drivetrains and daily bouts with mild hypothermia. Goodbye, hero dirt.

Video: Van Life 2

10.02.2013

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.
