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.

Nate Hills Shreds TGR’s Local Trails

Mountain biker and POV legend Nate Hills has been on a tour of the western US lately, hitting just about every sick spot there is, and filming it for our enjoyment. His latest sesh brought him to Teton Pass, just a stone’s throw from the TGR offices, to rip a local freeride trail Lithium. It starts off at the top of the pass with a short pedal to the goods, then follows a ridgeline all the way down to town through some of the finest jump features the area has to offer.

This Rider Puts the Freeride Back Into Mountain Biking

Vincent Tupin wants to go to Red Bull Rampage. The young European rider from the ShapeRideShoot crew shows off his insane bike skills in his new edit at Bikepark Châtel, where he mixes some new-school style with some serious old-school hucking. I certainly hope to see Vinny sending it at Rampage sometime soon! "Taking part in Redbull Rampage has always been my ultimate goal. Since I started mountain biking I have dreamed about completing in Utah, riding the most amazing and challenging
