Big Bikes and Even Bigger Jumps: Black Sage Fest is On

When Ryan ‘R-Dog’ Howard tells you “just flip it,” you know there is trouble brewing. That trouble comes in the form of an epic session at the upcoming Black Sage Fest.

After putting the finishing touches on this year’s course, they spent a few sessions getting a feel for the jumps with their friends. It’s got everything from moto-style ramps to a jump over the 10 Barrel Brewing truck. Check out the highlight reel from the first few days of practice.

Oh yeah, and R-Dog? He casually drops a shoulder and flips the jump.

Black Sage Fest is going down today. Here's to seeing the rest of the video that comes from it.

Remy Metailler Shreds Squamish’s Newest Trail

It’s always a treat watching Rémy Métailler pop on POV cam and go shred the living daylights out of his local trail network. We’re not sure if it’s the accent, the riding, or the commentary along the way – we suspect it’s a combo of the three – but these always get us pumped to go out and scare ourselves on our mountain bikes. His latest creation takes us down a brand-new trail in Squamish, BC named after our favorite La Croix flavor , chasing local mtb guide and builder James Ivory. RELATED:
