Lean, low and keen to let loose, the sleeper bike from Santa Cruz in 2013.

Exclusive: 2013 Heavy Pedal Tour–Crested Butte, Colorado


Our third day in Crested Butte was beautiful, and the trails were perfectly tacky. Only the threatening thunder had us on our toes. We rode for the whole day. Breaking only to enjoy the wild raspberries and strawberries growing all over the mountain.

The Heavy Pedal Tour rolls into Crested Butte, Colorado only to find the kind of rain and cold that they'd hoped they'd left behind in the Pacific Northwest. Sticking out the storm, however, proved the right choice because on the third day, the sun came out, the trails were perfectly tacky and the trails were great. Check out the video.

What did Crested Butte have in store for the Heavy Pedal Tour? Some rain, some thunder...and (eventually) enough sunshine to make for some perfect Colorado riding. Here's a photo gallery to prove it.

Who's going to win the Red Bull Rampage on October 13th? How the hell would we know? Rampage is big, scary and unpredictable all rolled up into one crazy event, so you're guess is as good as ours. Red Bull, however, has put together a new series that gives you something to chew on between now and Rampage. In this episode of the new "Road to the Rampage" we take a look at Tyler McCaul, Kurt Sorge and Darren Berrecloth as they plot their approach to the big event.

Video: 12 Months, 12 Stories–Episode 9


Summer was hot, dry and sunny... well not anymore! Heading to Austria for the Overmountain challenge, the team faces a hell of a week. But even if we haven't see the sun, Ischgl's area is so amazing that we still rode all week and loved spending time in the mountain there.

Video: This Is Peaty–Season 2, Episode 6


World Champs in Pietermaritzburg was always going to be a special race... With a fast and extremely dry track, both speed and nerves were at maximum for the whole Syndicate.

A Marathon Day in the Saddle


Seven Spectacular Mountain Passes at the Maratona dles Dolomites Words by Colin O’Brien Video Courtesy of Maratona dles Dolomites The first kilometres of the Maratona dles Dolomites are as electric as any you’ll have on a bike. Helicopters hover overhead, bands line the roadside, crowds cheer and ring cowbells.

Video: 2013 Heavy Pedal Tour–Keystone


Keystone aims to please. No matter what your style of bike-park riding, there's something for everyone. For us, it was hard to decide which trail we wanted to hit up after our warm up lap. The choices are gnar, or jumps with gnar, or drops with jumps and gnar. It's hard to decide right? So, we committed ourselves to ride it all!

Dear UCI Delegates, Sincerely Greg LeMond


As you may have heard, British Cycling Federation president Brian Cookson has ousted sitting UCI President Pat McQuaid—a result that surely has a resurgent Greg LeMond in good spirits. Fresh off of the successful launch of his new bike line at Interbike last week, LeMond showed his support for Mr. Cookson in an open letter, […]

News: Red Bull Reboots Rampage Coverage


This year Red Bull is pulling out the stops in an attempt to make the average person watching Rampage from home (or work) feel like they’re closer to it all. “Enhanced” is the adjective being used to describe the viewing experience for 2013 and that’s actually pretty accurate. Here are some of the new features that'll make watching Rampage from your couch a considerably cooler affair.

The Bakery: Chasing Waterfalls with Team Gong-Show


Everyone has a friend like Jessica; whenever you are together chaos and adventure ensue. One minute you are meeting up for a drink and the next thing you know you are passed out on an inflatable dolphin in Mexico. There is a reason why Jessica and I do not hang out all that often--self-preservation.

Video | Machine for Riding


The near comatose state of confusion that inevitably follows Eurobike and Interbike was almost instantly made better as we watched Machine for Riding.
