Some may say mountain biking is an art form, painting lines through beautiful landscapes. Sarah Uhl, a professional mountain biker and artist, draws inspiration from riding her bike all over the world to create her art. Whether it’s ripping high-alpine singletrack, or weaving through Crested Butte’s golden aspen groves in early autumn, Sarah harnesses the flow she finds on the trail and channels it into her creative work.
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.
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, 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.
