Must Watch: First Triple Backflip(s) on Mountain Bike

Given the recent progression of mountain bike tricks and the insane level of talent out there, it was just a matter of time before triple flips became a thing. Sure, the first triple back flips on mountain bikes landed to dirt (as we know) required a massive purpose built jump with a mulch landing, but that’s how many tricks are first learned.

As the first episode in Travis Pastrana’s Action Figures, Gavin Godfrey and Ethen Roberts kick off the Nitro Circus series by both landing triple back flips. New episodes of Action Figures will air every other Friday. Check out the series preview with Travis himself after the break…

Shimano Race TV Provides a Quick Bike Check with Gee Atherton

Catching up with Gee Atherton in the pits, Shimano Race TV talks Shimano Saint and PRO components with Gee Atherton. His GT Fury World Cup is outfitted with a full Shimano Saint group along with Gee’s pro model Atherton handlebar, stem, and seatpost. The components didn’t keep him from crashing at Mont Sainte Anne for a third year in a row, but Gee was able to come back from the crash, qualify, and finish 10th even with torn tendons in his wrist. Nice work.

Video: Dylan Sherrard Ridiculous Spring Trail Party

Like anything ever with Danny Mackaskill or Chris Akrigg, if it was produced by Silvia Films – I have to post it. This crew of film makers gets me more stoked on riding than just about anything else that crosses my inbox.

Between the music, trail, and Dylan Sherrard’s unreal one handed unturndown, I’d be headed out the door and onto some dirt if it wasn’t already past midnight.

Shredits: Mont Sainte Anne Course Preview w/ Claudio, Troy Brosnan Challenges Fun, Mavic Preps Epic Ride Thru Alps & More!

We are always both amused by Claudio Caluori’s course previews, and amazed that he is able to communicate all of the course’s nuances while pinning it faster than most could hope. The Mont Sainte Anne preview is no different and in spite of crashing in the same exact location as last year, Claudio was clearly having fun on his bike.
