Michigan Meandering // Exploring the UP’s Best Singletrack

Venturing into the unknown is often a gamble, but when it pays off, it’s incredibly rewarding. Our plans to explore Michigan’s Upper Peninsula felt a bit like rolling the dice, as we’d heard whispers of surreal singletrack in the area, but without much of a plan or many contacts, we were operating off local advice—most often from people we met at bike shops or dive bars. It didn’t take us long to figure out that beta was better than anything we could find on the internet.

Watch Cam McCaul Laugh Through Crash After Riding Corbet’s in TGR’s ‘Rogue Elements’

By now, you've probably seen that in Teton Gravity Research's latest film–, presented by REI–we got our friends Cam McCaul to drop into Corbet's Couloir on their bikes, making history as the first riders to ever do so. What you didn't see was that after cameras stopped rolling, both McCaul and Brown ate it pretty damn hard. Still, judging by McCaul's reaction in our latest behind-the-scenes video, it doesn't seem like he was too worried about a little spill after such a crazy feat. To see

Watch: Mountain Biking Down The Steepest World Cup Course In The World

It's no Corbet's Couloir , but Austria's Hahnenkamm downhill, with a 27 percent average gradient is the steepest World Cup ski course in the world. Mountain bike legend Max Stöckl is no stranger to speed, as the Austrian native hit a whopping top speed of 167.6km/h in 2016 at Chile’s Atacama desert to break the world speed record on a standard mountain bike at the time.
