They say Kamloops is the birthplace of freeride mountain biking. It’s a bold claim, but considering it was the starting point for a handful of legendary riders like Wade Simmons and Graham Agassiz, the city might be onto something. Last summer mountain bikers Micayla Gatto and Hailey Elise dropped by for a visit, and kept themselves busy with the abundant trail networks and freeride style of riding. Watch as they sample what the region has to offer: biking, breweries, and more. Sounds like paradise to us!
Well, this one’s a video from Specialized, so unsurprisingly it’s pretty frickin’ weird.

Are we supposed to interpret this as “trailbuilding through the eyes of the tools themselves,” or what kind of art-house cinema experiment is this? I mean 2:08 is Oscar-worthy.

Welp. They’ve done it again. Physics and gravity decided to take the day off when Danny MacAskill and Kriss Kyle came by. We’re not sure what they do in their spare time, but we sure know what Danny and Kriss got up to, and it blew our minds.

Sounds sketchy. However, ski lift aficionado Doppelmayr just debuted what could become the standard for bike parks.
