Mega freeride lines, crashes, breathtaking landscapes and meeting the locals.
Red Bull Monserrate Cerro Abajo is the longest stair downhill race in the world. The race takes place on the famous Monserrate mountain that overlooks the city of Bogotá, Colombia and runs down more than 1,000 steps on the path down. Some of the world’s best DH riders step up to the plate to take on the arm-pump race of the year!
Incredibly smooth on the roughest and loosest tracks.
Back flips, jumps, flowy corners, and more back flips.( Comments: 3 )
Have you ever wondered what it’s like at a training camp? Follow along with video from Chain Reaction Cycles as they unveil their new team bikes and website. Details inside from CRC. Photos:CRC Team Chain Reaction Cycles unveil new bikes and website for 2020 After a barnstorming 2019 season in which Sam Hill claimed a record-breaking third Enduro World Series Championship, we’re pleased to bring you the new Team Chain Reaction Cycles bikes and website for the upcoming season. As well as maintaining a number of long-term component sponsors including RockShox and SRAM, the team will also be riding on board Nukeproof bikes and wearing the brand’s clothing. Pre-season training camp The world-famous Peille downhill track was the base for the team’s pre-season testing with SRAM, one of the team’s major sponsors, working to dial-in the new bikes and suspension settings. As ever, Team Manager Nigel Page was there to bring us the latest from our championship-winning team: What a great week in the South of France with SRAM! The downhill track was super rough and a real challenge for the bikes and riders, but it’s a great track to test wheels and suspension with a quick turn around on the shuttle. SRAM had technicians working on each rider’s bike, with food and drink laid on, social media staff covering the camp, and a physio to keep our bodies in check. All the support we had was a huge help for the riders getting their bikes dialled and ready for the upcoming races. Sam, Elliott and Kelan were all riding great and put in some quick laps on the rough track. Winning Strava KOMs in Dolceacqua After the two days of testing with SRAM, one of our other long term major sponsors, Mavic, came out to meet us for wheel testing and to film some video. The Mavic guys are an awesome bunch and fun to be around – look out for some cool video footage from them in the not too distant future. It was great to have Rob, Michael and Dale to help with bike setup and testing too. After four days of riding in Peille, we headed over to near San Romolo in Italy to ride the Antigravity track. Ben from Michelin met us there with some amazing tyres. This is a great track with a bit of everything on it with rocks, corners and fast sections. It’s a really good track for bike testing and set-up as well as being super fun to ride. For the last day of riding we headed down to see our friends at Supernatural in Dolceacqua and they shuttled us on an amazing track called Apocalypse Now, which is such a fun track. We had a great time riding this track and the lads put in some fast Strava times especially on Gnarly Charlie and Pie Man We also got some great footage and photos during the week from TJ and Laurence, while Lyn from CRC was looking after the social media as well as cooking us some great meals in the evening. All in all it was a great week of riding, testing and set-up, getting ready for the race season ahead. A huge thanks to everyone involved: Sam, Elliott, Kelan and Jacy. Everyone at SRAM The Mavic crew Ben from Michelin Supernatural, Dolceacqua Lyn from CRC Rob, Dale and Michael from Nukeproof We are all set and ready to take on the world again in 2020, so stay tuned to see how the team gets on.

“YO!!!! Ok, here’s the start of a new series we’re gonna do while I’m on trips. We’re calling it “Candid Cameron” and this is Volume 1. Wherever I go, whatever I’m doing, I’ll be bringing the DadCam, the iPhone, and the GoPro along for the ride and hitting the record button at sporadic intervals. The nonsense that those cameras capture will make up this series. Here in Vol. 1 we head to Hollywood with Kyle Strait and Cam Zink to be stunt doubles for a mountain bike scene in the TNT action drama “Animal Kingdom.” Then we head to Aspen Colorado to do the on-site announcing for Winter Xgames. Enjoy!! and let me know if you’d like us to keep Candid Cameron rolling. We’ll still be doing the usual riding Video Logs but these will keep the vids flowing while the schedule gets hectic. Thanks for watching!! Ok bye. -Cam”
A fresh backdrop and timeless style that never gets old.

Owen Marks was a skinny grom during the last years of the fabled scene that centered around the Post Office jumps in Aptos, California. After the destruction of that trail mecca, Owen put his head down and kept riding, quietly doing his thing and flying the flag for the culture that had now almost gone Read More The post Video: TillTheVeryEnd – Owen Marks appeared first on BIKE Magazine.
