It was a wild weekend for the Santa Cruz Syndicate in Mont Sainte-Anne. The Rat is back!
Here's the second-place slideshow from Deep Summer 2013. We sat down with its creator, Garrett Grove, and got his take on the competition itself, his competitors and what it takes to put together some of the best mountain bike images of the year.
Here are the highlights for the Teva Best Trick Showdown that took place today. No one was prepared when California’s Mike Montgomery threw down the first backflip bar-hop to tailwhip ever landed on a bike; a trick that netted Montgomery the win and a $4,000 paycheck.
Kona rider Dylan Sherrard is known as not only an incredibly poised rider, but also a genuinely nice guy and, keeping with our anti-bro-brah mission here at Crankworx, we thought we'd profile the rider who is poised to enter tomorrow's Whip Off Worlds competition and raise some eyebrows.
Round 5 of the Enduro World Series went off in Whistler and the Whistler Mountain Bike Park as the ultimate test of bike handlnig skils, fitness and mental toughness. Australia's Jared Graves won his first round of the EWS while French legend Anne Caroline Chausson had her own maiden victory of the series.
Just like your family vacations...wait, no, probably not like your family vacations at all, unless your family had a habit of packing James McSkimming, Mark Matthews, Bas van Steenbergen, Dustin Gilding, Harrison Mendel, Spencer Graf, Kirk McDowall and Anthony Evans into a car and roosting around the country. Check it out.
Would it be a Cedric Gracia video without the guy putting a cucumber in his pants? Probably not. The cucumber is in here, as well as a ton of good riding sequences. Enjoy.
The Dual Speed & Style saw Sweden’s Martin Soderstrom take his momentum from a win at the GT Dual Speed & Style at Crankworx Les 2 Alpes last month and put it to good use today to take gold in Whistler as well.
"The Alien" gives his take on enduro, the season so far and his approach to the Enduro World Series
We loved the 2013 Kona Process DL. They scrapped the bike for 2014 and replaced it with a new line of both 29er and 650b bikes. Why? We went looking for answers in our latest Blueprint Series video. We've also put more than 600 miles and 150,000 feet of descending on the new bikes and have in-depth reviews of all three 2014 Kona Process models. Here's the most in-depth coverage you'll find of a bike line that should turn heads this coming season.
Afghanistan isn't a place for the faint of heart. But that didn't stop Matt Hunter and the crew from Anthill Films from making the trip while creating their latest film "Forgotten Dirt".

weekend. Martin Soderstrom from Sweden took the event with a solid final run and went home with an extra $8,000 in his pocket. Another super fun event held by Winter Park! #CFFEST
After a stressfull week on the GXC circuit, the guys needed some down time out in St Tropez. Sun, sand and Bryceland's backside was the perfect cure, before heading home for National Champs... Which turned out to be a belter of a course, fast and dusty in the height of the British Summer... An epic race, but some bad luck for Peaty once again, check the full story inside...
It's an advertisement--but a pretty kick ass advertisement all the same. Okay, the shot of some dude's butt--that I could live without--but the line "Maybe you think it's all Red Bulls and high-fives, but it's not." got my attention. Nice writing. Good footage. If only more adverts were made like this, I might actually watch them. Nice work from the people at Backcountry.com
