Cam Zink Lands 100-Foot Backflip at Mammoth

While most of the mountain bike world was throwing whips over screaming crowds at Crankworx Whistler, Cam Zink was hiding out at Mammoth, where the ski area that's hosted the legendary Kamikaze Downhill race was looking to play host to another kind of insanity: a Guinness World Record attempt for the biggest backflip on a bike. And last night at 6:30 PM Pacific time, Cam dropped in, tailed by an assistant to make sure he was clocking 45 mph at the bottom of the in-run, and lofted an enormous, unhurried backflip over a giant cheese wedge made out of fine Sierra dirt, touching down over 100 feet later with a new world record under his belt and a seriously relieved wife and kids.

It's been a big season for big flips this summer, as young gun Tom Van Steenbergen landed his own, possibly world record-breaking, front flip while on a film shoot with TGR and Anthill for our upcoming bike film, Unreal.

Matty Miles Laces Up Some Drool-Worthy Lines in This raw Edit

Red Bull’s Raw 100 series is back with Matty Miles shredding some singletrack in Kamloops, BC. He goes fast, he goes big, and he makes it all look stupid easy.  Raw 100 is meant to highlight the talent of filmmakers by showing riding at its rawest: no music, no funky effects, just good, clean riding. This time around, Rupert Walker captures Kamloops local Matty Miles lacing up some drool-worthy lines.

The Sea Otter Classic Dual Slalom Was Too Much Fun

The Sea Otter Classic Dual Slalom Was Too Much Fun

The Sea Otter Classic, held each year in Monterey, California is three days of all things biking. TGR was fortunate enough to attend and enjoyed the days of racing and new gear. What stood out was the Dual Slalom, a race that pitted two riders against each other rather than the clock. The course was a fast, bermed beast, making for some A+ racing.  Share in the excitement with a highlight video from our friends at Pinkbike.
