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.

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.

As usual, each of his films has their own distinct flair. This time it's back to Huth's backyard we go—Vancouver Island. The enchanting foggy rainforest is quickly overshadowed by Alex Volokhov's grit on a bike. Not only does he float high through the air, but the guy picks himself from a burly fall.  Taking a second to shake off the crash, he

Kilian Bron Continues to Rip Anything But Dirt

Kilian Bron Continues to Rip Anything But Dirt

We’re convinced at this point that Kilian Bron doesn’t actually ever mountain bike on dirt. The other day he dropped a video of him cruising down the world’s tallest sand dune, now he’s bombing through pow at La Clusaz. Watch as the skiers pause in disbelief as Bron cruises by. Bron definitely seems a bit crazy, but we're fine with that so long as he keeps injecting his outlandish ingenuity and creativity into the sport. Now, the real question is: What’s will Kilian ride
