Caleb Holonko might not be as well-known as other riders out of BC, but his riding is some of the most metal sh*t we’ve ever seen. Freeride is alive and well in this man’s world, and we’re all about it. You might recognize a few of the features in his latest video Lights Out, but we bet that you’ve never seen them ridden the way Holonko does. It’s 90 seconds of gnar, and you should watch it.
There's always talk of pro riders making things look like they're in a video game. As in, too crazy for real life. Austrian freeride mountain biker Fabio Wibmer has always been massively creative with his riding - and his latest project is no different, and it takes that "video game look" to a whole new level. One of his favorite video games is the entire Grand Theft Auto series, so of course he took some inspiration. Recognize some of the spots?
The results are in! After pouring their hearts and souls into riding, filming, and editing their entries for the 2022 MTB Grom Contest presented by TGR Optics, a crop of young freeriders have shown yet again that the sport of freeride mountain biking is progressing at an astronomical rate. This year, we again are awarding two Grand Prize winners and two runners up with titles for the 2022 MTB Grom Contest and sweet prizes from our friends at 1UP Racks, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Teton

It just so happens that the combination usually occurs in stunningly beautiful locations – like Virgin, Utah, or the Peruvian Andes. Freeride sensei Andreu Lacondeguy has been spending a lot of time in South America these last few years
