Matt Dennison and Kyle Norbraten Win Dirt Diaries with The Sickest Edit Ever

Crankworx is in full swing, which means it’s time for the return of favorite events like the Dirt Diaries video competition. In front of a huge crowd at center stage in Whistler, Matt Dennison managed to defend his title from 2014 with the help of Kyle Norbraten and friends to create the “sickest edit ever.” Blending the incredible cinematography we’ve come to expect from IFHT with amazing riding and a solid dose of comedy, their Dirt Diaries entry prevailed against some stiff competition.

Full credits after the break, plus make sure to check out the clip from runners-up Mike Gamble and Yoann Barelli…

Wait for the slo-mo recaps at the end that show him ripping through the tech sections faster than any human should be able to.

In the clip below (starting at 4:38), Greg Minnaar’s mechanic, Jason Marsh, explains some of the tricks he uses to help lubricate the cranks and BB. READ MORE ->

Must Watch: The Making of Brandon Semenuk’s “One-Shot” unReal Segment

By this point, you’ve probably seen Brandon Semenuk’s unReal as it blew up over the Internet last week. If you haven’t, go ahead, we’ll wait. Perhaps more impressive than the incredible riding, is the fact that the entire run was shot in just one take. That’s right, no splicing together multiple clips to make it look like the perfect run. Just one continual clip that was filmed by Teton Gravity Research and Anthill Films from a pickup truck with some heavy duty machinery.

If that wasn’t enough, the crew had to build the entire trail along with a road that ran parallel to make the filming possible. Check out the behind the scenes video next to peek behind the video curtain…


Must Watch: Bike Parks on Road Bikes – Vittorio Brumotti is at it Again

Livigno vittorio brumotti

It looks like Peter Sagan may have some competition in the bike handling department after Vittorio Brumotti joined the Tinkoff Saxo training camp in Livigno. We’re not so sure Brumotti could keep up on the road, but he definitely has nearly everyone beat when it comes to trials on a road bike (though Sagan can sure hold his own – remember the car and the MTB video?). The latest video featuring the ridiculous roadie is almost more like an OK GO music video than a bike video…


Must Watch: Chris Akrigg and The Water Cycle

Must Watch: Quadruple Back Flip – Jed Mildon Lands it First

Nitro Circus Jed Mildon screenshot quad back flip

It seems every time we see the latest video to come out of the Nitro Circus camp, we say to ourselves – They’ve done it. That is the craziest thing we will see on a bike. That lasts anywhere from a few days to a few years, but inevitably, the crew comes back with another even more impressive feat that seems to defy the laws of gravity and/or physics.

Most recently, the quest for the next big trick involved not one, but two riders with Jed Mildon and James Foster going head to head for the glory that comes with being the first. The first to land a quadruple (!) backflip on a BMX bike. Yes, the trick required a custom built ramp but it also required unbelievable commitment and a willingness for some gnarly crashes. Check out the video next…
