Trails That Drop Jaws Under Switzerland’s Most Iconic Peak - Singletrack Switzerland Zermatt

In the first episode of Singletrack Switzerland, a new Teton Gravity Research mountain bike project produced in partnership with Swiss International Air Lines, Switzerland Tourism, and BMC Switzerland, two American mountain bikers – pro rider Brice Shirbach, and pro skier Carston Oliver – venture to Zermatt, Switzerland, where they experience alpine singletrack on a level and in a landscape ummatched in North America with the help of Epic Europe tours

With gorgeous singletrack winding down thousands of vertical feet of Swiss Alps mountainsides from gondolas, trams, and trains that climb near every peak in the valley, the pair join German BMC Pro Rider Kerstin Kögler to experience all Zermatt has to offer, including Gornergrat train-assisted descents and the giant Zmutt Glacier, which is steadily being whittled away by climate change but yet still holds an unparalleled beauty.

Well, the Tour de France finally got interesting this year. While it’s certainly not the first time someone’s done this, Alexis Bosson certainly styled his jump this year. Not only did he clear the pack and make it on international TV, he threw a big ol’ suicide no-hander over the road gap. Check out Bosson's POV:

Life certainly comes with its challenges. But for some, those challenges far outweigh anything else, especially when you don’t get to pick your battles. When Tate MacDowell and Brian Mcdonell were diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2016, they came face to face with life’s fragility. Never ones to back down, they vowed to make the absolute most of it, and set their sights high: to beat cancer and resume their lives by climbing the Grand Teton. Stay tuned for the official film release coming

POV From the World’s Craziest MTB Race

For those of you who don’t know about the Megavalanche, it’s likely the rowdiest race you’ll ever see on two wheels. Mass tart. Crashes. Glaciers. Rocks. Crashes. Oh, and did I mention carnage? There’s really not much else to say. Take a few minutes to appreciate the gnar, and please pardon Ben Deakin’s French.  RELATED: 1500 Mountain Bikers Race Down a Glacier P.S. If you really only have 30 seconds, fast forward to 2:18.
