The progression of freeride
Red Bull Rampage went back to its roots this year, and while some questioned if progression was possible with a return to dirt jumps, the doubts vanished very fast. The removal of wooden features was not a problem for Antoine Bizet who landed a double backflip – the first one in Rampage history. Graham Agassiz hit one of the steepest drops we have ever seen, and Brandon Semenuk, the overall winner, did a run worthy of the all-time greats. You can check out the highlights in the video below.
Gotta know ‘em all
We made an infographic for every bike novice, from which maybe even some experienced riders could learn something. Can you tell what’s missing, though?
Peter strikes again
Celebrating in style seems to be something that runs in Sagan’s blood. We all remember his New Year’s Grease tribute, and now he comes to the UCI Gala dressed like this. He really is the rock star of cycling.

A ride to remember
“No cars, vineyards as far as you can see in every direction, roads that wind and twist and reward at every turn – what else can I want? I realized at some point today that there’s little that makes me happier than the perfect road. There aren’t all too many of the perfect roads out there, but they exist, and they sit there quietly, waiting on the lucky rider,” says our favourite photographer Jered, and we couldn’t agree more.
