Video: DJ Brandt’s Rise to Rampage Episode 2

As a bit of an unsung hero of the sport, DJ Brandt is opening up about his rise into the top rungs of freeride mountain biking in his new series Rise to Rampage. Starting off with roots in Grand Junction, CO, the young ripper worked his way up through the ranks of slopestyle and freeride mountain biking, slowly making a name for himself in an industry already saturated with big names. After breaking his leg (see Episode 1) in a nasty fall riding in Virgin, Brandt took it upon himself to make his dream of riding in Red Bull Rampage a reality.

In Episode 2, we learn more about what it took to get ready for and built a Rampage line, and the pressures of being a newcomer to such an insular world, and get a look at one of the nastiest flat landings we've ever seen.

We have to hand it to the bike industry, when it comes to taking part in eye-catching commercials, they’re pretty darn good at it. That’s especially true for random non-bike-related products, like in Danny Macaskill’s latest video. When he’s not busy spinning and jumping around on his bike, the trials legend is plugging some hi-tech AC system.

Kids these days seem to be sending it big before their eighth birthday. Granted bike technology has progressed leaps and bounds, but it still takes a level of fearlessness to approach a technical rock garden or wooden wallride. It's case and point are six-year-old Crosby and seven-year-old Tya, who both love testing their limits on their bikes. Who knows, maybe they’ll be the next Brett Rheeder or Tahnee Seagrave?

Video: Commencal’s New Edit is a Must-Watch

We're used to seeing great edits from DJ Brandt, Hugo "Frixfrix" Frixtalon, and William Robert, but this one has raised the bar higher still. Shot in Colorado, Utah, BC, and the French Alps, this video is ten minutes of beautiful cinematography and rowdy tricks. From DJ Brandt ripping big-mountain lines in Utah to William Robert hitting a massive jump line in the Alps, it's all sick.  RELATED: Here Are Our Favorite Moments From Formation Well paired with a soundtrack featuring the likes of
