Jesse Melamed Vs. Whistler Closing Day

Jesse Melamed certainly had one of the most action-packed race seasons of any mountain bike athlete this year. With two EWS wins and a claim to the #1 number plate, he returned home to Canada on a total high. Of course, traveling internationally meant two full weeks of quarantine with his housemates (also EWS racers), which must have felt like forever. But lucky for them, that quarantine lined up with closing day at the Whistler Bike Park, where it was all about party laps with the friends to close out the season.

2 weeks off the bike and we were all feeling a bit sketchy! Nothing like some primo dirt and the best jumps in the world to get back to though!

Even though Douglas is a pro skier, he

Funny: Loris Vergier Narrates Santa Cruz’s Latest Release Video

We’re always fans of Loris Vergier’s outrageous French accent, but it gets even better when he’s simply making noises to “narrate” a mountain bike video. That’s exactly what he does with Santa Cruz’s latest release vid (for the brand-new Bullit e-mtb), and it’s pretty damn funny. Ever heard of a foley artist? It’s how Hollywood creates sound effects for the movies in post-production. For example, in Star Wars, sound designer and foley artist Ben Burtt says he created the famous TIE fighter

Founded by Transition Bike’s Keri Young and Angi Weston, these clubs are based around not only building a solid foundation for mountain biking before expanding into more advanced riding, they’re also looking to foster community.
