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.

Ever Wonder How Dane Tudor Shreds Pow So Hard?

It’s no secret that to sustain a career as professional skier, you have to put in the off-season training hours. That doesn't just mean going to South America for a few weeks or riding your bike once the trails dry up, but it means hitting the gym and using every chance you can get to gain strength for the winter. Scott multisport athlete Dane Tudor spends much of his winter on huge backcountry ski missions with the TGR crew, but his off-season is anything but “off”. He is busy putting in

After Sitting out Rampage, Rémy Métailler Wins Taxco Urban DH

After being forced to skip Red Bull Rampage due to visa trouble a few weeks ago, speed demon Rémy Métailler took the win at the 2017 Taxco Urban DH. For those not familiar with these races, riders hurl themselves down narrow streets and stairsets through cities all over the world, dodging buildings, the crowd, and sometimes even stray dogs. Rémy's Taxco run is nothing short of incredible.
