Must Watch: Martyn Ashton – Down Not Out, Mountain Bike Party

Martyn Ashton

Down but not out. That phrase is important to remember for any of us after suffering an injury. Fortunately, most injuries are less serious and require less time off the bike, but every once in a while there are those that aren’t so quick and easy to come back from. Martyn Ashton knows that better than most. After establishing himself as a world trials champion, a crash left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Fortunately for Ashton, his friends made sure he was only down, but not out. While he still doesn’t have full use of his legs, the ability to ride a lap down the Fort William Downhill World Cup course was made possible thanks so some special equipment…

Must Watch: Pure Darkness 3 – Going Big Will Never Die

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 8.58.32 AM

Ever wondered just how big you can go? For most of us that isn’t a question of physics, but rather one of our own abilities and courage. But for a handful of riders on this earth, that question can only be answered by building bigger and bigger jumps. Insanely large jumps. When your roll in requires a high degree of fitness just to get to the top, you know you’re in for a wild ride.

This of course, is the latest installment from Pure Darkness which features Sam Reynolds, Matt MacDuff, Danny Pace, Andreu Lacondeguy and Dylan Stone. These madmen built one of the most mind boggling slopestyle courses (dirt jumps?) around and then show us how to absolutely send it – with a few crashes of course…

The Win Tunnel: Where to carry your spare tube

The Win Tunnel spares

Specialized is at it again. Between use of their new-ish wind tunnel for bike development, the aero team continues the aerodynamic equivalent of “will it blend?” with the Win Tunnel. Putting the tunnel to use for educational purposes, Specialized is looking at your spare tube (not your spare tire, for those who aren’t in race shape). Is it faster in your jersey? On your saddle? In a bottle? The results may come as a surprise…
