As Sage Cattabriga-Alosa gets older and deeper into his career as a pro athlete, he just seems to get better and better at what he does. Sure, he’s a world-class skier who can hang with the best in the gnarliest terrain around, but he’s also proven that he can hang with the best mountain bikers in the world. Just a few months ago, we saw him at Black Sage Fest a few miles from his Bend, Oregon home, hitting massive jumps with the likes of Cam McCaul and Carson Storch. This past weekend, Sage made it down to Oaxaca, Mexico for the Trans Sierra Norte enduro race.
This race has evolved over the past few years into a pro-level party in the woods that draws riders from all over the world keen to explore Mexico’s vibrant food and culture, as well as ride their bikes on some unique trails. Sage joined the likes of pros like Richie Rude, Alex Pavon, Branham Snyder and Jerome Clementz, and posted some pretty respectable times himself. Feast your eyes on a recap of the race from years past, as well as some of Sage’s POV from this year’s event.
The time is finally here to watch the world's greatest freeride mountain bikers go head to head in Red Bull Rampage. Now in its 14th year running, the event is considered to be the pinnacle of the sport. 21 riders will descend upon the course, navigating sheer cliffs, unforgiving drops, and massive jumps. Tune in to see who will be crowned this year's winner. RELATED: The Practice Runs at Red Bull Rampage are Looking Dialed
Not all kids are obsessed with Fornite and Tik Tok. Nine-year-old Pearl Johnson likes to climb, particularly El Capitan, and this September she became the youngest person to scale the granite monolith. The climb up the Triple Direct route took her four days and three nights, and she was joined by her mother and a family friend. She’s joins the ranks of young gals who have set their sights on the Yosemite’s pinnacle climb—for example, 10-year-old Selah Schneiter, who climbed the Nose in June.
It’s Red Bull Rampage week down in the Utah desert, and the world’s best riders have been hard at work moving literal mountains of dirt to shape their lines. It might be the same venue as last year, but that does not mean the history-making lines you’ll see Friday morning will be the same. Here are a few of the most eye-catching features on course this year. Take a peek. Rough and raw freeride at its finest. Peter Morning photo. Brendan Fairclough’s Chute
