All women's freeride events just seem to keep coming. Between Future Grounds, Formation, and Dark Horse, it's pretty clear that the people like what they see and want more. Well folks, Hannah Bergemann is here to bring it to you. The event takes place on a dreamy Bellingham jumpline, also known as Blue Steel. Now, Bergemann, along with Transition and Red Bull have created Hang Time- an all women's progression session and jump jam. Riders such as Blake Hansen and Harriet Burbidge-Smith will join Bergemann to session the flowy line. We're stoked to see what comes out of a stacked group of riders on a dreamy course.

TGR Optics team member Nick Clark (@rowdyflow) might know the trails of Teton Pass better than just about anybody. If you’ve ever ridden there, you might recognize some of these iconic features – but we bet you haven’t seen style smothered on them like this before. Nick teamed up with Tannus inserts to see how low of tire pressure he could get away with running – but in reality it was just another reason for him to go out and hit his favorite features.
