It’s easy to overlook our home trails and local haunts when there are so many exciting and exotic places to travel with our bikes. Take it from Casey Brown who typically spends her bike season trotting around the globe for competitions and film projects. She’s lucky if she gets a few weeks at home to explore.

EWS racing twins Anita and Caro Gehrig take us on a tour of their
Ripping around on downhill bikes doesn’t always need to happen between the race tape while the clock is running – in fact, it’s usually way more fun when you’re just out there tearing up loamy singletrack in the woods. Vancouver Island’s Kendall McLean knows that feeling all too well – turns out he’s a bit of a loam connoisseur himself.
