This POV footage is from his qualifying run in 2014, which he went on to win outright. Would you ride this course full out?
By Jared Graves Mentally, Round 6 was one of the toughest weekends of my life. Since racing the Val d’Isere World Cup downhill here last year, I have been looking forward to coming back. The town of Val d’Isere is so cool and the surrounding mountains provide beautiful views; the kind that make you stop […]
Ed. Note: We were recently reminded of the Faraday Portuer’s upcoming in-the-flesh shipping-to-customers December debut, and fell in love with it all over again—hence our re-posting of this video.

The Bus: A Journey Up North, is a story of some good friends doing what they do best; having fun, adventuring, and sending it on mountain bikes and kayaks. With the idea to run the bus to be more economical as well as environmentally friendly, the friends converted the school bus to run off waste vegetable oil.

Theater Thursday | The Best Teams Ride Campagnolo* Sure, the title of this video reeks of Italian machismo and condifidence, but that’s not why we’re here. While obviously produced as a marketing tool, that doesn’t change the fact that there’s plenty of drool-worthy frames to be seen. So, c’est la vie. Here goes nothing…Campagn-YOLO. *This […]
