Mountain Bike Pack Rafting Mongolia, Anyone?

I gotta say, Joey Schusler has really cornered the market on miserable-looking adventures that involve a mountain bike. His personal brand of adventure seems to revolve around trips that require strapping a ton of extra shit to your bike, getting sick, being freezing and soaking wet, not knowing the language, having a hard crash days away from anything resembling a hospital, and occasionally also riding a bike on cool-looking singletrack.

So when the trip is Mongolia and pack rafts so small they fit in a backpack are a significant part of the transportation plan, you know you are in for some fun. Joey and his childhood friends Mason Lacy and Sam Seward spent 12 days traversing the Mongolian Altai, a remote range of glaciated peaks with silty blue water flowing from their flanks. Oh yeah, and there's a giant eagle who's the pet of a nomadic tribesman. Click play!

Its all about the adventure and expanding your comfort zone.
Almost a mad dogs and Englishmen type of adventure.
Reminds me of a combination of epic mountain biking and kayaking trips gone wrong….but not horribly wrong.
I loved it! I can’t wait for the next one.

Well, we’re glad he’s finally decided to throw a leg back over the saddle and join his friends on the Rocky Mountain enduro squad for some off-season riding in the woods around home. It never gets old watching him chase Andreane Lanthier

Magical Mountain Biking in Turkey

If the Disney movie and our film had a love child, it would be this edit. Seriously, though. Kilian Bron and Commencal Bikes abseloutely killed it on this one. Not only do they capture some pretty unbelievable riding, but they've also managed to highlight the beauty of this Middle Eastern haven. Between the excellent terrain and the stunning visuals Turkey has to offer, we're not even sure how a place like this is even allowed to exist. Oh, and did we mention how cool the hot air balloons

Remy Metailler Talks About Fear and Biking

Just as it does in many sports, fear plays a fairly large role in mountain biking. We see athletes riding trails or doing tricks and think to ourselves "that's so scary, I could never do that." But fear, like many obstacles, is a mental game. Pro mountain biker Remy Metailler walks us through how he manages fear. Metailler doesn't pretend to be superhuman, but rather provides some tips on how he manages fear when sending those crazy rock slabs. Some of his tips include walking the line and
