​The Athlete Edits: Kyle Strait x Esperanto

To kick off our Esperanto Athlete Edits, why not start with one of the most recognized names in mountain biking? Kyle Strait is known for many things – the Ride Concepts athlete is an accomplished multi-disciplinary racer, a legend of the freeride world (who competed in the first-ever Rampage as a 14-year-old grom before competing in every edition of the event since, with two wins), a trailbuilder with an eye for perfection, the co-host of the Strait Acres Invitational, and a father. For more information on Esperanto and to find tickets for the film tour, please go here.

This past fall, Strait popped over to Jackson Hole from his home outside San Diego to join his buddies Darren Berrecloth and Cam Zink for the ultimate dad’s trip. The three have known one another for over two decades, sharing a love for the sport and many adventures over the years. These days, even with divergent career paths and new responsibilities, they still make an effort to get together and ride. With the Tetons as a backdrop, the trio got to work building and riding a massive jump feature at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s bike park. In between jump laps, they sampled the best tech and flow trails Rendezvous Mountain has to offer.

I like the concept of this video Kyle really gave all on this. I like also the trail and obstacles of it. I really can’t help to ask as well if there is construction debris removal near Jackson MS

Interesting video

​VIDEO: Jesse Melamed’s Winning Run POV From EWS Petzen-Jamnica

Well, you know what Jesse Melamed standing on top of another podium means? Listening to the man breathe heavily for 10 minutes while he bombs down a mountain side in some faraway place. Melamed is truly a master of the sport, and watching him rip never gets old. This time, he dominated the second stop of the 2022 Enduro World Series in Petzen Jamnica, Slovenia – a course filled with an unbelievable amount of rocks and gnarly, loose corners. It’s almost like riding at home in the Tetons in

Sometimes we need a reminder that when it feels like the walls are closing in, we can always get on our bikes and ride. Whether it’s through your hometown, down your favorite trail, or off the beaten path, riding provides us with a brief escape from reality in which we can enjoy the beauty of living in the moment. Join Yannis Pelé in a daydream as he styles over rock, snow and dirt, cruises through underground tunnel ways and gets struck by lightning in this crazy edit.
