Video: Yannis Pelé Shows off Some of the Alps’ Best Singletrack

Oh man, do I miss riding my bike in the Alps. French rider Yannis Pelé just made that longing even worse with his latest clip of exploring France’s Mercantour National Park on two wheels. Ok, I’ll admit that the video is a little unorthodox – I mean, who rappels with their mountain bike on their back?

When the COVID restrictions were finally lifted, French freeskiing prodigy Ben Buratti went straight to the mountains only to find that his home mountain La Clusaz had become an eerie ghost town.

Norco Brings Back The Long Travel Freeride Bike: the Shore

News flash: Freeride is alive and well. With mountain biking exploding this summer (following a multi-year trend) we are glad to see that our favorite aspect of the sport - shredding for the sake of shredding – is here to stay. Norco, one of the original pioneers of freeride mountain biking, just dropped an all-new bike catering exclusively to that particular faction of riders. Paying homage to freeride's roots, it’s called the Shore, has 180mm of travel front and rear, 27.5-inch wheels, and
