Since we’re on a throwback kick these days, or at least it constantly feels like we’re perpetually embracing kooky old-school MTB bits, I thought you’d enjoy this video by Tannus Tires showcasing Krispy Baughman’s evolution of freeride in Utah…
Deane Parker sent over his latest video, showcasing some epic terrain in the familiar, yet foreign landscape of New Zealand.
The Craigieburn Forest Park has many trails, follow 3 friends over the highest line in the park, and around a circuit in the heart of the Craigieburn Range. This is backcountry bikepacking to the extreme.
The latest video from RedBull isn’t about Rampage, it’s about Formation, the inaugural freeride event built and ridden by all women. I’ve been waiting to see a video from the event and can only hope it gets more coverage next year!
It’s one thing to watch Rampage from a boom or even drone’s point of view but to watch it from the rider’s point of view is something else entirely… GoPro compiled a highlight reel from their athlete’s Rampage runs and it’s mind-bending!
RedBull has pulled together a best-of highlight video from this year’s Rampage and it’s worth the watch!
Everything about this is massive. Cameras can never fully capture the scale of RedBull Rampage and it doesn’t help that superhuman Brandon Semenuk makes it look so smooth…
Oscar Härnström paints lines in a rock quarry in his first-ever freeride video.
This is one MTB video project I’ve been looking forward to seeing! To celebrate the release of Return to Earth on Apple TV, Anthill films, Shimano and Trek released the Moments of Clarity segment – a true top-to-bottom line ridden by FBM world tour champion Brett Rheede – in what appears to be Green River, Utah.
Freeriding is an artform, where the rider finds lines that exist within the landscapes’ natural curvature. Utah is a place with an abundance of geological features, making it a veritable playground for the sport. Check out the latest from Rémy Métailler for some mind-melting line selections.
This self-funded undertaking by Peter Jamison features riding by Reed Boggs, Matt Macduff, Ethan Nell, Nicholi Rogatkin, and David Lieb. Check out more at passionfilmmtb.com and be on the lookout for the full-length on Vimeo on January 20th.
This looks wild!
“Mountain bike legends Hans “No Way” Rey, Danny Macaskill, and Gerhard Czerner attempt the impossible… The first back to back mountain bike ascents and descents of Mt. Kenya and Kilimanjaro Africa’s second tallest and tallest peak. What they experience changes their lives.”
The prefrontal cortex is relatively well-developed in my brain, meaning self-control and personal safety awareness is high. Honed even. Other riders out there might have a more underdeveloped PFC, meaning they’re willing to huck themselves down massive step-downs and over canyons without more than a few moments of hesitation. In the world of mountain biking, I’d rank myself and my friends as capable riders. Obviously, many of the riders I photograph have skill levels that are a few notches higher than mine. Some of them grew up riding BMX or motocross and a mountain bike just feels natural up in the air, oftentimes one wheel or two at a time. Photographing these rad atavists is just one of the reasons why I love my job, yet all it takes is a change of scenery to feel like you’re in over your head. This sea change was found once we left the common trails in Hurricane, Utah for a neighboring outpost called Virgin. Home to RedBull Rampage and other free-riding spots, Virgin is in many ways, the home base for the sport.
