“Because life would be boring without it. Because it’s a good time. Because I don’t want to work. Because I like the progression. Because the vibes are always high.” Riding just gives us what we need – whatever that may be, and we love it for that. Everyone is drawn to the slopes for different reasons but regardless of the reason, mountain biking brings us all together. Check out Esperanto riders Carson Storch, Darren Berrecloth, Emil Johansson and Kurt Sorge join their pals and ride through some trails and dirt jumps as they share the love of biking with everyone around. You can also check out those homies on the Esperanto tour where they send it through some of their favorite trails. Why do we ride? Because it’s f*cking dope!
We’ve seen lots of MTB spins and lots of flips off drops before, but one thing we’ve never seen is a combination of the two – a trick called the cashroll. Made famous by Nicholi Rogatkin, it’s essentially a 180 to backflip to 180 done off massive booters. The name? Well…let’s just say the trick can pay the bills. Australian slopestyle rider Mike Ross just landed what’s likely the first one ever off a flat drop in the Crankworx Summer Series at Canada’s SilverStar Mountain Resort.
When Carson Storch and Johny Salido stopped by the Esperanto World Premiere back in June, they mentioned that they had just come one of the mostly wildly fun few days of their lives. That’s what the Cam Zink Invitational is all about – getting together with a whole crew of your buddies to shred bikes, motos, and have a plain old good time. Just outside Reno, Nevada, Zink has built a 169-acre compound to act as homebase for the madness, and the crew of 30 got together to compete for a winner,
Style is one of those things that transcends mediums, and master of style himself Ryan ‘R-Dog’ Howard certainly knows to pull his inspiration from. In this case, it’s one of his new favorite songs, “Run Horse Run” by American country and blues singer Charley Crockett. On a riding roadtrip north into the loamy woods of the West Coast, R-Dog was listening to the album on repeat – and the cowboy vibes surely show off in his riding.
