With all this New Zealand fever happening on the site it is only fitting to feature Bernard Kerr absolutely devastating the trails around Queenstown. Bernard is quick enough to challenge for the podium at any World Cup race and he has the steeze to make this edit utterly enjoyable and with speed and grace that is obviously unattainable by us mortal men and women. While the riding is stunning, Bernard may want to check in with the Masters and Masters school of off-bike hijinks to tune up his delivery, its not that the lad doesn’t have it in him, its just the Wyn and Eddie might be able to help him punch up his gags a bit. No doubt though, Bernard has whimsy and good humor in his soul.
“Inspired by the sport of professional rally car racing, Deux North took a special group of riders to the Rally de Catalunya in Spain for Hunt 5. In Salou, they met one of the world’s best drivers, Kris Meeke, and recorded his story of passion and adventure. Traveling along the route of the World Rally Championship, from Barcelona to Valencia, Deux North ran into some of the most beautiful places on earth as well as some interesting surprises and setbacks. It was Kris’ story that inspired Deux North’s hunters over their four day trip and to this day. This is Hunt 5, as told by World Rally Championship driver, Kris Meeke, and Deux North’s Hunters.”

Com’on, admit it. You’ve got a few pieces of Patagonia in your wardrobe. My favorite is their down sweater. I never leave for a trip without it. That thing has saved me on more than one occasion over the years. Chances are, your clothing has hit a few snags after heavy use. Rather than tossing it in the trash, you choose to send it in for repair.
Patagonia’s repair facilities are in Reno, NV but now, there’s a new mobile repair truck. The Worn Wear truck is currently crossing the US to make on the spot repairs, sell used clothes and even teach you how to repair your own apparel.

This is absolutely insane. Kinda dorky, but insane. Thanks for sharing this video Chris!
I’d say this is one of the few times a bicycle-mounted camera delivers some excitement. Check out team BMC’s inside look at the Tour of Flanders.
