Video: Check out the Newest UCI DH Race Course

For most of us US-based downhill racing fans, we’ve been sh*t out of luck for the past few years when it comes to watching racing on our home turf. The last time the UCI held a downhill race in the ol’ US of A was in 2015 at New York’s Windham Moutnain. Thanks to the hard work of the likes of Neko Mulally and friends, that is set to change this weekend with the final stop of the UCI DH World Cup in Snowshoe, West Virginia. A hotbed of local DH racing for years, the track got super-sized and is ready to host the world’s fastest racers this weekend.

As always, Gee Atherton shows us what lies in wait on the all-new track with his POV course preview. While Atherton describes the first gnarly sections as “just a few little rocks, nothing too wild,” that quickly changes in the wet rocks down low to “oh my god, I can’t talk, as I have no idea what I’m doing.” Goes to show what the pros are up against.

It’s a good mix of everything: rock gardens, super floaty jumps, and some flat-out grass sections. We’re excited to see who will take the win and the overall title once the dust settles.

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.

Remy Metailler Continues His Quest of Finding BC’s Gnarliest Rock Rolls

Fact: Rock rolls are gnarly. They’re even gnarlier when you’re talking about the ones hidden away in the woods of coastal British Columbia, where Remy Metailler’s is one a god-given quest to find the craziest possible thing to ride. We love watching the wild Frenchie tackle insanely steep and consequential lines on his mountain bike, but his latest video truly pushed the limit of his riding. Metailler is a very calculated rider, making crazy sh** look easy because he truly knows what he’s

Emil Johansson truly is a master of combining flowy style with some of the most technical tricks in the book – it’s no wonder he’s won Joyride and competed in Rampage, and is only on the way up.
