Robin Goomes Becomes First Woman to Land a Backflip in Speed and Style

Crankworx “herstory” has been made. Last Friday during the Speed and Style competition, Robin Goomes was duking it out against Kialani Hines and caught everyone’s attention by throwing a backflip on the final trick jump.

Goomes finished just shy of the podium but had plenty to celebrate that night. It’s worth noting that the Speed and Style event was recently added to the women’s lineup in 2019, and the progression we’ve seen over the last two years is remarkable. One can only imagine what these athletes will be doing next year.

When you’re at an enduro race in Italy, and it sounds like the fans are literally screaming “die, die, die!” they’re actually cheering you on. Turns out they’re actually screaming “dai dai dai!” which translates to “go go go.” But given the massive amounts of carnage at this particular race, the “die” might be a little more appropriate. Either way, watching some cringe-worthy bails with a soundtrack of very emotive Italian spectators makes for a good time in our book. Maybe next time you’re

When it comes to finding the gnarliest mountain bike race in the world, you’re thoughts might go to World Cup DH racing, or maybe something like Red Bull Hardline. Sure, those are technical and scary, but how about combining the steepest, scariest parts of those races with a full-on high mountain adventure that includes starting on a glacier and descending nearly 8000 vertical feet through ancient hiking paths in the French Alps. Oh yeah, and it’s a mass start race, meaning you’re racing
