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. The trio got busy digging and riding absurd freeride lines in the Pyrenees before throwing down a session for the ages in Andreu’s infamous backyard.
