Rachel Atherton and Loïc Bruni Are Your 2018 DH World Champs

Sunday marked the final day on the UCI DH race calendar, with the world’s fastest racers representing their own countries on the world stage in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. After a long season of racing, two riders emerged victorious in one of the closest races of the year. The top 4 men’s racers finished within 0.75 seconds of one another, on a 3-minute course. As the old adage goes, a fart could have changed the outcome. Last year’s world champ, Frenchman Loïc Bruni edged out Martin Maes, Danny Hart, and Loris Vergier for the win. American Aaron Gwin came in just a hair slower in 5th place.

On the women’s side, perennial powerhouse Rachel Atherton blew away the field with a nearly 10-second advantage over Tahnee Seagrave and Myriam Nicole. Check out Atherton’s run here:

You might surprised to learn that skibiking is a thing at all. You might be even more surprised to learn that skibikes have been around since the mid 1800’s as a means of practical winter transportation in the Alps, as evidenced by oil paintings from the era. Yet somehow despite it's long and decorated history, skibiking never made it big. A true shame, really. But that all might change soon. Apparently the sport has been steadily gaining popularity in Europe for some years now and it’s

Danny Macaskill vs. Danny Macaskill, Who Wins the Game of BIKE?

A few years ago, Danny Macaskill introduced trials biking to the world, with a series of wildly innovative videos that left people wondering what the heck was possible on two wheels. Fast forward a few years, and Danny picked up an enduro bike and started bringing the same otherworldly moves to a mainstream bike audience.
