Video: Chilled-Out Urban MTB Riding

Urban mountain biking often seems to be a full-on adrenaline rush complete with intense music, high speeds, and violent crashes. This video shifts that paradigm, focusing on the creative process, the locations, and the solitary moments of riding features most of would never dream of. It's even more amazing that rider Erik Hölperl filmed and edited this all himself. 

From rider Erik Hölperl:

It seems like everything has been discovered by now, all continents, the oceans, and even space. As a young person, you could get the impression that we came a generation too late to discover something truly new. A feeling that must be overcome somehow. For me, looking for places that have been forgotten by time and give them a new purpose did just that. See something different in them, that others overlooked, something new. Capture their unique beauty for generations to come before some of those places decay and disappear forever. Find Beauty in things others believe to be ugly.

I like what the content of this short video. With everything showing off their extreme skills I think what Erik showed here is time to go back to the roots chill riding in the urban place. I really like what the laid back ride of this video. Thank you for sharing this to us. With all the videos I have watched even the places the trails and such, I still love riding on the road and doing long rides especially here in my place there is no trail that is near me to ride on so I content in riding on the road where I can see the beauty of nature and trees that covered the road because they are so tall.

Paul Basagoitia on Overcoming a Spinal Cord Injury with E-Bikes

Paul Basagoitia thought he’d never ride a bike again following his devastating crash in the finals of the 2015 Red Bull Rampage. The accident left him with a spinal cord injury which rendered him unable to use the lower half of his body. Just as he was losing hope that he’d ever pedal two wheels again, the mountain bike industry introduced the pedal-assist electric bicycle. With the help of this new technology, Paul could suddenly pedal uphill, ride some of his favorite trails again, and

VIDEO: BMXer Kriss Kyle Throws Down On Otherworldly Features

Man, I wish I rode BMX as a kid. The bike handling skills and ability to flow through terrain on a bike with no suspension clearly translates pretty damn well to mountain biking. Kriss Kyle isn’t really known as a mountain bike athlete, usually opting to express himself on 20-inch wheels instead. But when he does pick up a big bike, it’s sure impressive, and those BMX skills shine through like nobody else’s. His latest edit showcases just that, with a custom-built track somewhere in the

They say Kamloops is the birthplace of freeride mountain biking. It’s a bold claim, but considering it was the starting point for a handful of legendary riders like Wade Simmons and Graham Agassiz, the city might be onto something. Last summer mountain bikers Micayla Gatto and Hailey Elise dropped by for a visit, and kept themselves busy with the abundant trail networks and freeride style of riding. Watch as they sample what the region has to offer: biking, breweries, and more. Sounds like
