It may be raining but the sun’s still shining in our hearts, man.

Vallnord World Cup Finals
I’m Salva Moreno, from Malaga, (Spain)
Went to Andorra for the UCI Downhill World Cup to make a video and try to find sponsor to keep doing what I like. To ride bikes and edit videos.
This is what I did during this weekend. I hope you like it!
HD MacAvlanche 2013 – Full Race Run to 8th place.
Video of the 10min downhill track used for the 2013 MavAvalanche on 27th July 2013 at Glencoe. Starts high up accessed by the cliff hanger chairlift. No real path for the majority of it, just taped across the bare terrain and find a path some how; the last 4 mins is down the Red downhill tracks thats really rough of rocky.
Bike is a 2011 Santa Cruz Heckler with Fox forks.
The MacAlavanche is a no fuss event nofussevents.co.uk/

Experiments in Speed
Experiments in speed. Inspired by those great men of the salt flats, those men that in the 60s pushed the Land Speed Record from the 300s up towards the 600mph mark in jet-propelled cars built in their sheds. We decided to do what we do: build a bicycle, but this time, in the spirit of those pioneers of speed, build it to see how fast we could go…
The Train Shredit
The train rips down Woods trail in Evolution Bike Park. Riders charging at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
Bike Kill 2005
“We don’t like airplanes. Airplanes are no fun because you can’t ride a bicycle in an airplane and riding bicycles is what it’s all about at the Black Label Bicycle Kill.” Filmed in Super 8 film in 2005, the Bike Kill is an all day block party in Brooklyn, NY with bike jousting, music, and mutant bikes.
