A moustached Darren Berrecloth shows us that finding the perfect zone in Utah takes almost as much commitment as riding its lines.
Take a quick peek at what the wrecking crew has been up to to ring in the new year, and preview the January issue.
This video could be titled “Acrophobia,” or “Vertigo.” Not for those afraid of heights, this trail had to have been next to impossible to construct on the edge of such a steep cliff. Kudos to the riders who can brave the trail that will give most of us sweaty palms just watching.
Pro downhiller Lars Sternburg and his buddies are proving that you can still get crazy on a Klunker. One gear, coaster brake, and big jumps. Shot up in Bellingham Washington. Enjoy.
This video has been around for awhile, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to watch again. Anyone up for a trip to New Zealand? Remember, it is summer there right now.
This video is way too unique not to share. The 36-inch wheels obviously can plow obstacles in a straight line, but would they be able to handle a real trail? Could 36-inch wheels be the new 29er? No way.

Catch up with the World Cup Champion Aaron Gwin. Superhuman riding ability isn’t something that happens by accident. He’s already hard at work training for next year’s race season.
Matt Hunter is always up for big mountain riding. Climbing or descending. Downhill or XC. Whistler or Moab. No matter the location or terrain, the Specialized Enduro is also up for the challenge. It’s happy climbing winding singletrack as long as it leads it to where it can fly?often literally?down a deep forest trail.

They don’t need 4 different bikes to do it, proving there’s no need to limit yourself to one discipline when you go ride. Just go ride. Nicolai All Mountain Trial 3 from […]
