Utah’s Canyons Resort Bike Park crew spent the summer building a new DH race course.

Rocky Mountain's Thomas Vanderham & Geoff Gulevich traveled down to Utah to compete in this year's Red Bull Rampage, the largest and most dangerous competition in freeride mountain biking. Both of them killed it down there, coming away (mostly) unscathed and placing well (8th for Thomas, 11th for Gully).

Got a case of the Mondays? Watch this rad video by Quentin Chaumy of Nicolas Luque riding Belledonne Massive in the Alps.
By Vernon Felton When SRAM debuted their XX1 single-ring drivetrain, they made it clear from day one that XX1 wasn’t being targeted at any single group of riders.
