The Athlete Edits: Kurt Sorge x Esperanto

Freeride mastermind Kurt Sorge is a tough one to track down. When he’s not ripping big-mountain lines near his home in British Columbia, he’s traveling the world to connect with friends in faraway places over bikes. The three-time Rampage winner and Schwalbe athlete spent his spring with Andreu Lacondeguy and Brage Vestavik in Barcelona, Spain.

Thomas Genon is no stranger to the wild world of Utah – but every time he’s brought his bike across the ocean to come to the desert, it’s been in pursuit of a podium at Red Bull Rampage. This time, he decided to come just for fun. Canyon’s latest short ‘No Schedule’ is a video concept that builds off the back of Tommy’s multiple Rampage experiences. The project sets out to answer a question: Away from the structure and time constraints of contest riding, what can a rider like Tommy do with

At first glance, we wouldn't blame you if you thought that making a film was easy. Watching a polished film that has athletes cruising around lush, green hillsides in cloud forests doesn't really look like "work." However, when we say it takes an army to make one of our films, we really mean it. Operating cameras, navigating travel, understanding different languages, building features and directing a film segment is no small feat. Without our small production team, the athletes and help of
