Biking to the hill… in ski boots

This morning I woke up and asked myself what would be the most stupid thing I could do today. Can you bike to a ski hill, on your ski boots? Turns out the answer is yes. Although maybe not advisable...

But, I forgot to take my poles. Duh.

Do you ever wake up to your legs tingling from withdrawals because of the lack of stimulation they're used to in the wintertime? Do you sometimes find yourself obsessing over that one line you never did four months ago? Or find yourself incessantly thinking about how you'd rather have a nose on the verge of frostbite than be sweaty as hell in the humid summer air?  Well, you might just be a snow addict.

Yet Again, This Weekend’s World Cup DH Track Looks GNARLY

Yet Again, This Weekend’s World Cup DH Track Looks GNARLY

Now we’re really in the swing of things. With back-to-back race weekends, the world’s best DH riders have their work cut out for them. Last weekend, we saw action at Val di Sole, Italy. This time around, we’re heading to Vallnord, Andorra to watch it all go down. When a mountain hosts both a UCI DH World Cup race and a Freeride World Tour event, it’s got to be legit. With Claudio Caluori still off his bike after a gnarly concussion earlier this season, we’ve been seeing more and more course
