The event that changed MTB forever is live this evening at 6:30pm SAST. Red Bull Rampage is considered the pinnacle of Freeride Mountain Biking and the world’s best will be there pushing the limits. Our very own Ryan Franklin (Monster Energy SA) is there working on the build team for UK rider, Sam Reynolds, so look out for him on Sam’s runs.
Prepare yourself for some Friday Awesomeness! This week on the Friday Mix we start with the new snowboarding film from Burton, Backcountry. Burton’s four-part web series [SNOWBOARDING] kicks off on 9/13 with the release of the first episode, BACKCOUNTRY. This episode takes you deep into the mountains of British Columbia, the Pacific Northwest, Switzerland, and beyond. Featuring the riding of Jussi Oksanen, Terje Haakonsen, Jeremy Jones, Nicolas Müller, Mikey Rencz, and Mark Sollors, BACKCOUNTRY highlights heavy riding on massive cheesewedges, natural big mountain lines, hairy cliff drops, and soft landings.
After that I present a short web doccy on the Bearclaw Invitational. Hosted by the legendary Darren Berrecloth, the Bearclaw Invitational in Mount Washington, Canada, is the final mountain bike slopestyle contest of the 2013 season. See how the athletes thrive and survive at this contest with the final showdown on the horizon.
Lastly take a trip into the heaving waters at Mavericks with South African big wave surfer, Grant Twig Baker showing why he is one of the best in the business! The guy takes such different lines to the other surfers and really shows what the paddle potential is at one of the world’s gnarliest waves…
