A Montana man was attacked by a grizzly bear while riding his mountain bike outside Big Sky, Montana on Monday. According to the Billings Gazette, the attack occurred on a trail on private property in the Spanish Peaks community. The man was riding alone and likely surprised the bear while rounding a sharp corner on the trail. A Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks spokesperson stated the attack did not seem predatory in nature. The victim was able to escape the attack, and walk to the nearest road to get help from a passing driver. He was then airlifted to a Billings hospital and is in critical but stable condition.

After weeks of teasing a new bike, Evil finally dropped the all-new Wreckoning, a long-travel 29er do-it-all dirt smasher. Now in its latest iteration, the Wreckoning sports all the refinements we’ve come to expect from a 2020 bike with updated geometry that still stays true to the plush yet poppy nature Evil bikes have been known for.
