It’s spring in the desert, and you know what that means? After a long, snowy winter, it’s time to put two wheels on dirt again. Well, actually if you are anything like Ethan Nell or Tom Van Steenbergen, you probably never stopped doing that. Born from the fruits of their labor of love in the Utah desert, the two freeriders and Accomplice athletes just launched one of the wildest video parts we’ve seen in a while: Mesa 2. Two years ago, the duo teamed up for the first version, which was chock full of airtime, unbelievably technical drops, and loads of style. Round two is no different, albeit maybe a little more refined, and we can’t stop watching it. Want more from these two? Check out TGR's Accomplice, also on Netflix.
We’re just a few short weeks away from the second-ever Red Bull Formation taking place outside Virgin, Utah. Are the riders ready? Yes, but there’s always room for more. In the case of Samantha Soriano, she’s still pushing her progression with a little help from her best friend/worst enemy, her own brother Ross. Learn more about her process getting ready for the biggest event in women’s freeride mountain biking in Episode 1 of her new web series
Mountain biking doesn’t always have to take place in actual mountains, and DJ Brandt of all people knows that. It was edits like this one that put him on the map in the first place. Sure, we’re used to watching him throw down on his big bike in places like Virgin, but if his X Games Real MTB video proves anything, he’s still an absolute weapon when it comes to street riding. For his latest edit with Commencal, he put on some Mos Def, hopped aboard his dirt jumper and took it back to his roots
Raw bike parts edits like this one get us excited for the upcoming summer riding season. Kaos Seagrave takes that raw riding style to heart in his latest banger from Wales’ Revolution Bike Park – a mini-Whistler located in the Welsh hills that’s frequented by some of the UK’s best riders. Check out some corner-smashing, manny-holding, euro-tabling goodness from one of the fastest (and most colorful) riders in the game.
