There’s A New XL Jump Line In Bellingham Courtesy of Transition Bikes

Nico Vink might be best known for his riding – but the man knows how to build a proper trail too. When he’s not busy throwing down all manner of shapes on his bike, he’s usually busy sculpting masterpieces in the dirt, and one of his latest projects is now open to the public. Bellingham’s Galbraith Mountain (already home to nearly 100 miles of the best riding you can find just about anywhere) now features a massive new jump line built with help from Nico himself.

Another Tour de France, Another Road Gap

This year’s Tour de France certainly looked a little bit different, with less crowds on the sidelines, riders wearing masks when off the bike, and all manner of other COVID-19 protocols in place. One thing, thankfully, still remained the same: we had another mountain biker launch a massive road gap jump over the peloton. This year’s honors went to Dan Leclercq for sending a 60-footer over the racers – un très gros saut! RELATED: Video - Floating Iceberg Flips With Ice Climbers on

Watch The New Wheelie World Record: Nearly 20 Miles in 1 Hour

Riding 20 miles in one hour on your bike is already quite impressive, so now try doing it only on your back wheel. That’s exactly what Swiss ride Manuel Scheidegger did, wheeling 31 kilometers in under an hour, setting a new world record along the way. Scheidegger also held the record previously.  Scheidegger completed the record on a 400-meter running track, riding 77 laps on his rear wheel. In order for the record to count, he would have to start over if his front wheel touched the ground.
