Even though they shred harder than most adults, 11-year-old Raoul and 8-year-old Emric still require candy bribes for interviews. These two Swiss groms have been living in a camper with their parents for the last two years travelling around to different bike parks and honing in their skills. The brothers ride bikes of all styles, but it’s clear their talent shines in the freeride realm.

We’re back with more groms on mountain bikes- but this time, it’s a full on girl gang. Based around some of the country’s best biking, the all girls mountain bike clubs the Flying Squirrels and the Radical Rippers call Bellingham, Washington home. Founded by Transition Bike’s Keri Young and Angi Weston, these clubs are based around not only building a solid foundation for mountain biking before expanding into more advanced riding, they’re also looking to foster community.
