Paragliding and Mountain Biking: Our New Favorite Combination

From first glance, Kilian Bron’s video feels like your usual bike edit: until his bike suddenly lifts off the ground and starts soaring above the trees.

If jumping from mid-flight wasn’t sketchy enough, Bron’s landing zone is an icy field of snow in the French Alps. Which, judging from his speed, is perfect if you're not a huge fan of using brakes. Bron’s latest antics on his bike are not surprising, considering the Frenchman has already biked down the glaciers of Mont Blanc in the Alps and the exposed cliffs of Madeira. Watch as he and his (literal) wingman for his shenanigans, chase each other like the strangest game of cat and mouse you've ever seen.

Watching the best downhill racers in the world face off on the international stage never gets old, but last season’s UCI DH World Cup was certainly one of the most entertaining to watch. Whether it was the rise of young guns like Amaury Pierron and Vali Holl, or the insane performances of perennial favorites like Aaron Gwin, every single stop was packed full of edge-of-your-seat action, and we’re counting down the days until the racing starts again in 2019.

If you've ever been a bit hesitant to try mountain biking you'll be inspired by 82-year-old Alf. He was motivated to learn after recovering from cancer, when he needed an outlet to get fit again.
