Great news! Remember that youtube channel Miranda Miller, Remi Gauvin, and Jesse Melamed launched on April Fools day?

When it comes to progressing on a mountain bike, your comfort zone and perception of fear can often be the hardest obstacles to overcome. Even though most shredits show professional athletes sending huge features without a hitch, behind the scenes they’re still battling with
I’m pretty sure gravity works a little differently for Bas Van Steenbergen. When he rides Utah spines he just seems to float from feature to feature, unlike us mere mortals. If you're wondering what that's like, check out his latest POV edit from Canvaswhich lets you follow along as he dances down the desert landscape. Sit back and enjoy.
