Video: The Top Three Runs from Red Bull Rampage 2018

This past Friday, we witnessed a new level of gnar at Red Bull Rampage. Sure, the event has been pushing the limits of what’s possible on a bike for 13 or so years now, but with a new venue and some creative new lines, that bar got pushed higher yet. Let’s just say that while Brett Rheeder, Andreu Lacondeguy, and Ethan Nell rightfully stood atop the podium, everyone out there pushed mountain biking into another dimension. Let's give a shoutout to people's choice winner Adolf Silva, best trick winner Tom Van Steenbergen, and Kyle Strait for the fact that he has finished a run in every single Rampage event ever.

Second-place winner Andreu Lacondeguy put together one of the most hectic runs the event has ever seen, tricking just about every major feature, even linking a 450 to a backflip:

Brendan Fairclough rode where nobody else wanted to ride, linking together a bunch of SKETCHY looking gaps and his massive drop off a massive rock feature he called “Dwayne Johnson,” we reckon his run would have scored much higher had he dropped later in the pack.

Smith’s Finally Drops a Full-Face Helmet, and the Video Is Hilarious

Time and again, the bike industry proves that it has one of the greatest senses of humor. Whether it's Specialized with their bike release videos, or now Smith releasing their brand-new Mainline full-face helmet, they certainly get our attention. The helmet looks promising, with ultra-light construction and all the DH-level protection for rowdy riding you could ever need, but it’s Smith’s athlete roster that steals the show, featuring everyone from Jesse Melamed to Remi Gauvin to ALN

Must Watch: Nico Vink Rides Through Fire

A decade ago, Ryan Gibb released , a masterpiece of a mountain biking film. A sequel never materialized, and he spent the next few years working on commercial projects. Then, in late 2018 Gibb made a return to the MTB world, traveling to New Mexico's Philmont Scout Ranch for an ambitious shoot featuring Nico Vink. The final film  was directed by Gibb and produced by Teton Gravity Research. The shoot was almost ruined by an unseasonable snowstorm, but Gibb and the team persevered,

Cam McCaul Turns Mt. Bachelor’s Baddest Trail Into A Music Video

Every bike park has that one trail – the one everyone talks about, whether out of excitement or straight up fear. At Whistler, it’s the trails like Dirt Merchant. At Mt. Bachelor, it’s the Rattlesnake trail, a rooty, rocky, and super techy downhill. For local (and international) legend Cam McCaul, it counts as one of his favorite tracks to test his skills. RELATED: Catch More Cam McCaul in TGR's Accomplice In all honesty, the trail looks sick, but we have to give Cam some serious props for
