The Caldwell Riot – Yep You Suck at Bikes

Ok, right, so before you get into this you should now that what you’re about to watch is the essence of the puerile, testosterone fueled, grossly immature, hell for leather, snotty nose, blokes just having lark part of contemporary mountain biking. This video does not pass the Bechdel Test.

It’s not trying to, what its doing is blistering your eyes with a rapid-fire onslaught of graphic pictorials, what it is doing is exposing the bleeding edge art of mountain bike shredding. My guess is that it’s probably illegal to watch this in some countries such is the explicitness of the corner slapping and a loam-drifting. So check your local by-laws, ping your constable, do your f*cking research and enjoy. Just remember there’s no un-seeing this, there’s no coming back.

If you dig this then give Tommy a follow on Instagram.

More from CX Nats

Between the snow and the temperatures falling on this year’s CX Nats course, it looked like one hell of a good time.

Paul Component Engineering: the Plastic Bastard

I love these videos of Paul Price, the owner of Paul Component Engineering. There’s something entertaining about listening to people talk about their bikes. Even if it’s a “plastic bastard.” Also, I can attest to how much the Jones bars rule with this Paul setup!

Enjoy the Weekend!
WTB_Chilao-1

This time of year, it seems like every other day someone’s in town, wanting to venture out into the mountains for some shredding. We’ve had a lot of rain in Los Angeles over the past few weeks, making the backcountry trails particularly tacky and chilly. This, as you’re well aware, makes for pristine riding conditions. Clayton had never ridden deep in the San Gabriels before, so I took him to Chilao, my personal favorite, for a bit of Friday morning shredding.

Enjoy the weekend and I hope you can get in some riding. Check out a few more photos below. (more…)

Taylor Phinney Had a Training Day
Dirty with Taylor-13

… and we did our best to keep up.

Like many professional cyclists, Taylor Phinney heads to warmer climates in the off-season to train. It just so happens that his locale of choice is Los Angeles. Last year, he rode from LA to Joshua Tree “just cuz” and this year, he’s staying in the neighborhood, exploring the climbs throughout Los Angeles County. Yesterday, Kyle from GSC texted me a cryptic message “Cross Town Ride 11am – meet at Intelli.” Around 10 minutes prior to the meet-up, he included an additional note “I’m running late, but Taylor will be there at 11.” Meaning, Taylor Phinney.
