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.

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.
We don’t know how he did it, but Reeves Macdonald managed to get Yeti’s new Switch Infinity linkage to open up for an interview.
Thanks to Corbin for the tip!

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.

Judging by the number of Stealth Black carbon Nomads we’ve seen with a murdered out parts kit, all black is still in. To help make your next build even more sinister, Fox has introduced a Limited Edition color option for three of their most popular Float forks complete with stealth graphics and black anodized adjusters. While the Kashima Coat stands out with its stark gold contrast, everything else on the Stealth Series is black on black.
See which forks are included after the jump…
We debated posting this for obvious reasons. There is some incredible riding involved, and we have no doubt that Danny enjoyed himself during the filming, but the gratuitous use of Playboy Bunnies poolside may turn a number of viewers off. However, if you want to see one of the most ridiculous reverse nose wheelies ever, fast forward to the 1:08 mark and you’ll get straight to the good stuff.
Catch the video after the break…
Last night we spilled some rumors about the new Specialized Carbon Demo, but today Red Bull Media has released a video showing the beautiful bike off from every angle. In it, they document some of the design and testing that when into the development, share Troy Brosnan, Aaron Gwin, and Mitch Ropeleto’s, and share some clips of the boys shredding.
Once you’re done watching the video, head to Redbull Media to learn more.
For those with sharp eyes, you’ll also notice in a few blurry clips that Brad Benedict was testing a prototype fork which is rumored to be a new unit from Ohlins. Head past the break for some screen shots. READ MORE ->
