MTB photographer Sterling Lorence walks us through his efforts to capture the perfect shot. To get there, he headed to the mountains of Vancouver’s North Shore and followed riders Brett Rheeder and Jackson Goldstone into the misty woods. A great documentary about the creative process from Anthill Films for Ride Shimano.
Following a fast-moving mountain bike rider through a narrow urban downhill course poses some serious challenges. In this video, you’ll see how the Dutch Drone Gods pulled off one of the most epic FPV shots ever, chasing MTB rider Tomas Slavic at the Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo race. (Thanks, Patrick!)
A big part of mountain biking is getting out and enjoying nature. But when the weather turns inclement, an indoor trail doesn’t seem like such a bad idea. Especially if it’s as awesome as Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park in Cleveland, Ohio, which is home to a 1.6km (~1 mile) long trail, loaded with a variety of tricky terrain to test your skills.
Athlete Stacy Kohut broke his back in an accident in 1992. That hasn’t stopped him from continuing his pursuit of outdoor thrills. With the help of a custom 4-wheel bike, he rips through downhill courses like a boss. Enjoy an exciting ride through Whistler Bike Park in this film by Chris Ricci, then learn more about Stacy’s story.
Enduro and Freeride MTB rider Kilian Bron is a quite the badass on a bike. He shared this compilation of POV footage from some of his craziest rides in 2020, including terrifying cliffside trails, steep downhill drops, wheelies on skinny paths, and climbing over crazy rock formations.
Freestyle MTB riders Danny MacAskill and Duncan Shaw met up with their fellow Drop and Roll teammate Rory Semple for a little fun in the sleepy seaside town of Rhyl, North Wales, jumping their bikes and balancing their wheels on just about every surface they can put their tires on.
Back in 2018, the talented drone pilots of Team BlackSheep headed to Germany’s Bikepark Idarkopf for the Audi Nines mountain bike competition. While there, they followed along with riders and captured some truly outstanding footage of their spins and flips. Their ski and snowboard footage is equally amazing.
