Velosolutions Builds New Bike Trail with 100% Renewable Energy

Even though Claudio Caluori’s famed trail building company Velosolutions constructs incredible trails all over the world, their latest creation in Switzerland is perhaps their most exciting build yet. Unlike their other trails, Nagens was completely constructed by electric machinery. Literally everything that touched the dirt was powered by clean energy: excavators, compactors, electric dumpers, and chainsaws. Even the crew, photographers, and site officials were transported to and from the trail by the use of e-cars or e-bikes.

Swedish freeride biker Emil Johansson got the call for Red Bull Rampage a mere three days before shovels hit dirt in Virgin, Utah, leaving him very little time to pack up his gear and fly around the world. Upon arriving, he had a frantic few days of digging and riding old Rampage zones in order to acclimate himself to the unique style of riding demanded by MTB's gnarliest event.

Full Send: Big Tricks on Red Dirt

Cam Zink, Ethan Nell, and Jaxson Riddle have each spent their fair share of time biking in Southern Utah. Both Nell and Riddle grew up in the region, and Zink has spent plenty of time there while competing at Red Bull Rampage, filming for various projects, and riding with friends. However, no matter how much time one may have spent exploring Southern Utah, all it takes is a shovel and a vision to create something brand new.
