Six tires to help you stay pinned from Schwalbe, Maxxis, WTB, Specialized, Michelin, and Onza.
Theater Thursday | Challenge Les Alpes Michael Cotty is an ambitious individual. Well, ambitious may be a bit of an understatement. The goal? Cycle from Evian les Bains to Nice—nonstop—across the heart of the Alps. The metrics? A devilish 666-kilometer ride boasting no less than 17 mountain passes—including the Col de la Colombière, Madeleine, Glandon, […]

Dutch phenom Marianne Vos […]
While the Ardent lacks the absolutely tenacious bite that’s made the Minion a favorite, this tire rolls a whole lot faster, weighs a whole lot less and is pretty outstanding in both wet and dry conditions. This, right here, is one of the best, unsung tires on the market.
Scott Markewitz has more mountain biking covers to his credit than any photographer alive and is always a threat in any kind of contest involving F-stops and action. This is the final entry from the 2013 Deep Summer Challenge and it was one of the most hooted and hollered for slideshows at the contest. Enjoy.

Stage One of the GENCO Mongolia Bike Challenge presented by Orbea was a 120-kilometer (74.5-mile) loop from the Genghis Khan Statue in Tuv Province with a groan-inducing 3,000 meters (9.842 feet) of climbing. The heat of the Mongolian sun combined with the seemingly endless short steep climbing sections made for a hell of a first day. Here's a race report and photo gallery from the steppes of Mongolia.

Greg Minnaar recently said that he only had one chance in his life to win the World Championships on his home turf and yesterday, Minnaar did just that. Check out his expression on the podium--it's the kind of thing that makes grown men weepy.

The Camber has flown a bit under the radar since its debut a few years back, but that should change. For starters, it's a damn good bike. For 2014, the Camber line finally gets Specialized's full-zoot treatment: a pimped out, carbon S-Works version as well as a more aggressive "EVO" model. This video tells the story.
Exposure Flare Taillight $70 / exposurelights.com A favorite of mine for close to a year now, the Flare offers a whopping 75 lumens of in-your-face brightness, much to the chagrin of the driver sitting behind you at that annoyingly long stoplight on your commute.
Brandon Semenuk and the crew head to Whistler for opening weekend, putting in fun sessions on the trails and in the Air Dome. Watch as Intern loses a bet and is forced to don the bear suit and wander into line-drive golf shots on the driving range.
Who is Greg Minnaar? What are his roots? Why is Pietermaritzburg so pivotal in his success? And what is OneLife? The filmmakers attempt to answer these and other questions about the two-time Downhill World Champion and three-time World Cup Champion with this OneLife short.
Words by Jen See On Thursday, Tony Martin rode a solo breakaway for nearly 175 kilometers at the Vuelta a España. That’s pretty much the entire stage. The field caught him in the final meters, in sight of the finish line. That’s the way it is sometimes with cycling. You might win, but more often […]
