Brett Rheeder used to be just another kid ripping it up on his backyard slopestyle course. Today he’s full-on freeride royalty. We rode along as he traveled to Trek to pick up his new bike, then on to Ray’s Indoor Park to put it down.
This video is a deodorant commercial, and it is awesome. Darren Berrecloth in Cameron, Arizona, doing what he does best–riding gnarly big-mountain lines.

Basagoitia’s accomplishment is one he’s been working on for years. “It felt great when my wheels touch the ground because I don’t think my body could have handled another hit,” says Basagoitia. “It [...]
By Kevin Rouse A week or so after I published my initial thoughts on Bontrager’s new RXL MTB Shoes, a suspicious package showed up on my desk. Unmarked and and unsolicited, I was a bit wary to open it, knowing a few of my old college pals’ proclivities towards obscene practical jokes. Curiosity eventually got [...]
By Sal Ruibal There are a lot of people out there riding bikes, but not like WE ride bikes. For us, bikes are our wings, attached to our bodies but not touching the ground. We float on the air in our tires and hop over logs and rocks with ease. We gyroscope around berms with [...]

Source: Rocky Mountain Bikes Most mountain bikers aren’t lucky enough to have a quiver of bikes to choose from on any given day, nor are they blessed with places to shuttle a freeride or downhill bike. As professional freeriders and North Vancouver residents, Wade Simmons and Thomas Vanderham are lucky enough to have a range [...]

A video recap of the first race in the 2012 PRO Superenduro series held at Golfo Dianese (IM), in the Italian Riviera.
By Seb Kemp It has been another hard week for Gee Atherton. An injury has pushed him onto the couch and deep into the world of British pub culture documentary, Coronation Street. For anyone unfamiliar with the chronicles of the residents of the Rover Return then all you need to know is that yes, the [...]
This video is quite a bit longer than 5 minutes, but we don’t care. Looks like Chris Akrigg’s rehab is coming along nicely. From Akrigg: “A more in depth look at what I’m up to at the moment and a bit about what makes me tick. As you’ll see still not up to full speed [...]
By Ryan LaBar GT Distortion 2.0 gtbicycles.com $3,300 GT’s Distortion defies conventional bike categorization. The bike has a 66.4-degree head angle, 17-inch chainstays, 13.8-inch high bottom bracket, a 150-millimeter fork, bash guard and wide bars with a short stem. None of these numbers seem out of place together, but what’s unusual is that the Distortion [...]
