Earlier this week, man-bike hybrid Danny MacAskill released The Slabs. Per usual, we were super impressed watching him descend slopes that normal people rock climb on his mountain bike. But all that steeze can't just be good editing, so we wonder, what really goes into making a video like that? Now MacAskill takes us behind the scenes of his film. He talks about choosing his lines from the endless canvas of slab rock and how hard it can be to actually get his bike up there. Getting the shot on terrain like this is no easy task either and his film crew dives into their process. Oh, and they're offering a reward for whoever finds the drone they crashed out there.
When most people are looking for a challenge or bored at home, they take on projects like learning to knit or baking sourdough. But when Brendan Fairclough and Sam Pilgrim need a challenge, they decide it's time to jump over Brendan's house on their bikes.

This meant building a platform across the top of Sam's sprinter van and a death defying skinny to take them from the van
In the words of Jesse Melamed: “The season doesn’t start til June!” Maybe that’s why we’ve been seeing more of him in British Columbia’s bottomless pow than out on his bike – after all the man needed some rest after his domination of the 2020 EWS season. 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
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
