​VIDEO: Iago Garay Lives The Island Life on Tenerife

Off the coast of Northern Africa lies a small archipelago that’s home to sandy beaches, stunning volcanic peaks and warm weather all year around: the Canary Islands. It's a little bit of Hawaii in the middle of the Atlantic. Turns out it’s not just a dreamy vacation spot for beachgoers – the islands actually have some of the wildest mountain bike trails in the world. As part of his Not Far From Home video series (filmed with the intention of showcasing his local riding spots in Spain – Tenerife technically qualifies despite it being a two-hour flight across the ocean), Iago Garay gathered his friends to go shred said trails to bits and indulge in some of the best the island has to offer.

Woah, I would someday wish to go here. The trails are awesome, not to mention the fabulous nature and volcanoes. Seem like it was carved out of a movie. Thanks for sharing this! Septic Pumping

Awesome trails and a great bike. It’s something that I totally love to do in the future once I get better in off-road biking Emergency Tree Service

What a beautiful island! It has all the stuff and land to be the perfect extreme biking trail. I’d someday love to go out there and explore like this with my bike. Thanks for sharing! Roofing Durham

Tenefire, I’ll remember that name. It seems like the perfect dreamland for extreme biking. I love how it has all of nature’s wonder which you can explore on a bike. Thanks for sharing this! Septic Pumping

Butt Naked Biking Takes Frontal Freedom To a New Level

There are some things I like to do by vicariously living through others, and mountain biking naked is definitely one of them. Call me closed-minded, but my guess is that going mach burrito into a patch of gravel doesn’t feel all that pleasant when you’re in nothing but your birthday suit and a pair of knee pads. Still, there are purists among us that love the liberation of going kit-less, which is why the World Naked Bike Ride exists. No joke, it's an annual event that's been hosted in 120

Shred, Eat Gelato, Repeat: The Gehrig Twin’s Italian Training Program

There are a lot of perks to mountain biking in Italy. The terrain varies from fast flow trails to steep tech, the views are breathtaking all around, and of course, there’s Italy’s greatest gift to the world, gelato. Well, there’s also pizza, pasta, and you can’t forget about the cheese. Lucky for the EWS racers, five of the nine EWS race stops are in Italy this season, meaning that a fresh gelateria will always be nearby. EWS racing twins Anita and Caro Gehrig take us on a tour of their

We’re pretty stoked that UCI World Cup DH racing is back on the calendar, but that’s not the only MTB action that went down over the last few days. Not all too far from Leogang, just across the border in the Czech Republic, the best urban downhill racers got together for a race of their own, through the streets of a tiny town called Dacice. Instead of the grueling 4-minute bike park battle, this urban track was relatively short but super technical, challenging all who entered. Check out Tomas
