Bromotti Wows Tour de San Luis Crowd with Insane Rooftop climb

Brumotti Tour De San Luis

At this point you should be familiar with the antics insane skills of Vittorio Brumotti. The Italian does things on a road bike that most people should never even attempt on any bike, let alone one with 25mm tires. As part of the pre and post race show at this year’s Tour de San Luis, Brumotti is showing fans a good time which apparently means climbing the steep roof of Terrazas del Portezuelo. I’m not even sure how his tires are sticking as he side hops up to the top…

Ever want to be a bike ranger? Blackburn says now’s your chance!

No, not the high round house kicking Texas Ranger, but an ambassador for all things adventurous on bikes. Blackburn, one of the earlier pioneers in adventures on bikes, (known as panniering and randonneuring back in the day), is still one of the largest producers for adventure specific equipment for the bike. There has been a pretty strong movement for various types of bike adventures including road touring, bikepacking, randonneuring, trans-epics, and even gravel and off the beaten path rides where getting lost is the goal, and Blackburn is taking full advantage.

To celebrate and grow the culture they’ve always been a part of, Blackburn launched the Ranger Program a few years ago where a hand full of adventure loving souls get chosen to enjoy some rock star treatment in exchange for… well, talking about and doing what they love. Wander past the break to see all the glorious loot and route options involved and how you can apply…

Holy Vertigo! GoPro takes us beyond Danny MacAskill’s view in this insane Cascadia edit

Holy Vertigo! GoPro takes us beyond Danny MacAskill’s view in this insane Cascadia edit

Danny MacAskill - Cascadia in Virtual Reality

We’ve seen some crazy views from some 360° cameras like the 360Fly and Nikon’s Keymission 360, and last week GoPro started spreading rumors at CES about coming out with a 360° cam of their own…. then we saw this! Although this new wave of video footage may seem bit hard to watch, they give the viewer a unique view that can be astonishing in the right setting. GoPro’s Cascadia, we featured not too long ago was beautifully hard to watch, and this one is no better.

Even if you don’t have an Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard, you can still flick the image around on your touch screen device and see all of Danny’s horrifically scary beautiful surroundings.

Team Sky scraps wind tunnel for in-depth “real world” tech to get aero

Team Sky - GCN

If you’re not first you’re last, and shaving every single sliver of time off your effort is critical in racin’. Especially when the riders at the top of their game sometimes have less than 1 or 2% separating their abilities. Though good equipment is crucial, nothing is more varying than the athlete’s position on their equipment and they need to get that dialed so that their output produces the best possible performance.

Check out the insightful video past the break that takes you behind the scenes of Team Sky’s “outside of the box wind tunnel” approach…..
