EWS Racer Jared Graves Announces He is Cancer-Free

View this post on Instagram

Results in from yesterday’s MRI. Officially cancer free! Now it’s just fully getting over the side effects of chemo which linger a little bit. But Energy levels get better every day. So glad to be past this chapter in my life. It truly puts things in perspective and makes the little things that sometimes stress you out seem so insignificant. Thanks so much for all the amazing support I’ve had from every one of you all. And especially all my awesome sponsors that have stuck with me through the last 10 months. Got a couple new bikes in the process of being built to start getting back to full fitness, which I’ll be able to show off real soon @iamspecialized_mtb @monsterenergy @htcomponents @rynopower @oakleyaus_nz @zelvyindustries @renthal_cycling @magura_official

Video: Bike Trails are Best Shared with Friends

There’s a cardinal rule in mountain biking: no dig, no ride. But honestly, it doesn’t fully explain why we dig in the first place. The whole point of creating fun bike trails is to share them. Whether it’s with the community, our friends, or other riders, fine trail craftsmanship is best appreciated in the company of others.

Katie Burrell: When Biking Becomes Couples Therapy

Mountain biking with your partner usually results in one of two things. Option A: you have a great time and are stoked that you can go on these kinds of adventures with them. Option B: the bike ride becomes an impromptu counseling session and someone has a mental breakdown. For your relationship's sake, we hope it isn't the latter. Comedian Katie Burrell reminds us of what option B looks like and man did she get it spot on.
