Lost the rear coming into turn 10 and went full Ricky Bobby today. I’m still a little confused on how this happened but I definitely jacked somethin up. Lol It’s been a rough week, just gotta laugh at this point and move on. A for effort, stoked I’m ok and lookin forward to next weekend. Thanks to my team for all the hard work, we’ll get there! @intensefactoryracing #brokemyback #spinal #docsaysineedabackiotomi
There were a lot of savage crashes at Fort William this weekend, but Aaron Gwin’s cartwheel over the handlebars was by far the gnarliest. It’s one of those tumbles that you'd want to look away but just can’t. The thing is, no one understands what caused the massive yard sale—even Gwin himself is perplexed.

Two tenths of a second. That’s all that separated Kate Weatherly and Marine Cabirou this past Sunday in the Women’s World Cup race in Leogang. Their results are indicative of a loose and dusty course that was racing fast, which kept things neck and neck between many of the top female racers. Despite Cabirou’s best effort to salvage her run after crashing on the last corner, Weatherly ultimately snagged 3rd by mere pedal strokes. At the award ceremony she stood on a UCI downhill World
The Crankworx World Tour returns to Innsbruck this week, and the festivities got off to a wet and wild start with the fan favorite Euro Whip-Off Championships. A crop of our favorite freeride mountain bikers sent it big off the whip-off booter, making shapes above a cheering crowd of rowdy Austrians (are Austrians never not rowdy at sporting events?). When all the dust settled, Casey Brown and Kaos Seagrave took the top step of the podium. RELATED: William Robert Hits Big Jumps in the
