Must Watch: Curtis Keene Chased by a Helicopter, plus more from Cedric, Peaty, Smith and Jeep
In a film with cinematography worthy of Hollywood, it’s fitting that Curtis is flying down a mountain in LA aboard his Specialized Enduro 29er. The RedBull film captures him from the helicopter, the ground, and from his bike as he rips just 5 minutes from downtown LA. Want to see the footage from his bike? Sure you do. Find it after the break…
During RedBull’s Bike Check for Curtis, they asked if 26″ wheels could win an elite Enduro race in 2014. His answer? No. Curtis certainly doesn’t have a problem when it comes to wide open throttle on his 29er, but not one 26″ bike will win? Big claims.
Some say a great day is just a state of mind. For Smith Optics, great days are what reinvigorate personal passion for life outside walls. To celebrate Smith’s impending 50th anniversary of outdoor adventure in 2015, the brand announced today the launch of its yearlong, multi-sport webisode series, “Great Days”.
With new “Great Days” webisodes dropping every Wednesdays through April and every other Wednesday May through the end of 2014, viewers get a behind the scenes look into what makes a Great Day for the elite of the elite and the challenges they face to get there. Each webisode will highlight Smith’s athletes and ambassadors across all disciplines of outdoor activity as they document what keeps them pushing the limits.
