Kelly McGarry’s Legacy Lives On With This Young Kiwi Rider

Freeride mountain biker Kelly McGarry was the kind of person whose influence reached far past just the mountain bike world, thanks to his infectious stoke, down-to-earth personality and outright generosity, not to mention his legendary riding. Contests like Red Bull Rampage would not be the same without his pioneering riding style and absolute massive hucks, like his backflip over the infamous canyon gap in 2015.

McGarry tragically passed away in 2016, near his home around Wakefield, NZ. His legacy has lived on through the Kelly McGarry Foundation, set up by friends and family to support mountain biking in his home country.

Sam Gale, a 16-year-old rider from McGarry’s hometown, embodies the legend’s spirit in his riding. Shred Optics teamed up with the McGarry Foundation to support the young rider. His riding, even at such a young age, already speaks for itself.

With absolutely enormous jumps and gaps, as well as rock gardens that seem to be cut straight out of hell, the track is among the gnarliest in the world. After a bit of a bummer of a season, Gee Atherton showed up strong and blew away the field on race day in his backyard. Halfway down his race run, and right before the biggest road gap on the track, Atherton clipped a rock at speed, losing both pedals,

Richie Rude Blows Up A Brand-New Trail for Red Bull’s Raw 100

Richie Rude is pretty f***ing fast on a bike. That speed comes with some benefits, like the fat that the two-time EWS champion just got a fresh piece of singletrack built for him: Rude Awakening at Vermont’s Burke Mountain. This isn’t just a flowy bike park trail, but real raw singletrack that Rude makes absolute mincemeat of. Watch as he effortlessly floats over endless East Coast gnar.
