Vincent Tupin really does not want to hang up his bike this year. After an epic year including a spot at Rampage and some insane video parts, he decided to get even more creative on his DH bike. A ton of early season snow in the Alps made some of his favorite trails a little tough to ride, but that did not stop him from absolutely sending it on the big bike. Coming from the snow and bike world, this is exactly what we like to see!
Specialized’s marketing department deserves an Oscar for this one. Do you follow anything about mountain biking on the internet? Then you’ll love this, and yes, it’s all in the details. Not really sure what my favorite part of this guy is, but there’s everything from “looks like a session,” “never go full enduro,” to a questionable new EDM soundtrack courtesy of the world’s best-looking mountain bike DJ. We also get to take a peek into Specialized’s design process. No, really, we do. Oh
We’re convinced at this point that Kilian Bron doesn’t actually ever mountain bike on dirt. The other day he dropped a video of him cruising down the world’s tallest sand dune, now he’s bombing through pow at La Clusaz. Watch as the skiers pause in disbelief as Bron cruises by. Bron definitely seems a bit crazy, but we're fine with that so long as he keeps injecting his outlandish ingenuity and creativity into the sport. Now, the real question is: What’s will Kilian ride
Ladies and gentlemen, we are back. This weekend marked the start of the UCI World Cup downhill season, with an all-new venue in Losinj, Croatia. Touted as both “too short and too easy” as well as “so full of sharp rocks and edges that nobody would make it down in one piece,” the track laid in wait to devour anyone who dared to enter the start gate. USA’s Aaron Gwin took home his 20th world cup win with a blisteringly fast run, beating out fellow American Luca Shaw and the kiwi Dean Lucas.
