Video: This Isn’t Utah, This is MTB Freeride in China

There aren’t a whole lot of places in the world where big-mountain freeride mountain biking has a home. Southern Utah and British Columbia are the go-to venues, but lately we’ve been seeing a whole new crop of locations spring up. The ArcticNicaragua, and India are a few to name, but freerider Antoni Villoni took his riding to the next level in China.

Villoni found a true freeride paradise somewhere in the Chinese desert, complete with Utah-like red dirt and spines galore. Check out his POV from a few lines (and ridiculous bails) during his time out there.

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
