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.

All-Female Bike Crew Perfectly Parodies Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE”

All-Female Bike Crew Perfectly Parodies Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE”

This might be one of my favorite videos that I have seen in the past year. This all female bike crew from Whistler perfectly parodies Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE". The flow and concepts are flawless, from calling out the bros on the trail to the shitty pink outerwear companies insist on making. The video is almost a shot for shot recreation of Kendrick's original. I have to admit, I'm bumping this track all afternoon.  Check out the original here.

Brendan Howey Turns on the Cheat Codes in his Raw 100 Edit

The recent uptick in delicious Raw 100 edits is exactly what the mountain bike world needs. More style, more speed, better cinematography, and just a more authentic look at the sport itself. Canadian freeride Brendan Howey teamed up cine magician Rupert Walker to produce his own take in the format, tearing up a trail deep in the lush forests of Canada.

Squamish Biking Has Never Looked so Good

Squamish, BC is home to some of the best singletrack in the world, with trails like the infamous Half Nelson rivaling the quality of those just up the road at the Whistler Bike Park. Remi Gauvin stopped through to tear down the primordial woods of Half Nelson at warp speed, lathering on the style, with his front wheel barely touching the ground.
