Rocky Mountain's athletes enjoy traveling all over the world to ride their bikes in unique, beautiful locations. Everywhere they go—from the backcountry of Argentina to the Great Wall of China and countless places in between—they hear people share their dreams of one day riding on our home turf in British Columbia. That’s why this year Thomas Vanderham, Brett Tippie, Geoff Gulevich, Wade Simmons, and Andreas Hestler decided to reinvigorate their love for home by exploring Vancouver Island, just a short ferry ride from our North Vancouver headquarters.
The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup 2013 presented by Shimano demands everything from the athletes. Between the Starting Point and the Finish Area, the Riders have to deal with rocks, roots and steep ground, but also with Step downs and Drops to show some massive races and their skilful technical. The Riders have to give everything to have a good start during the new season. Action guaranteed.

Check out the full project on kickstarter: kickstarter.com/projects/jgsconcepts/alaska-downhill-brigade Alaska to date is one of the most uncharted free ride biking zones in North America. High alpine biking with views of the ocean, volcano's, Mt. McKinley and the midnight sun, Alaska is the prime location for filming Alaska Downhill Brigade. Many athletes in extreme sports spend much of their time in Alaska searching out the next big line to ride and film. In the free ride mountain bike world, this has yet to happen in Alaska. As local guides, production crew and riders we have searched out areas over the last 10 years for this project and we are pioneering Alaska for free ride mountain biking.

Based in Wales, we get our fair share of the weather. Which is why Pete and Hazel developed the Road Jean, made from water-repellent Epic Denim, for the average British summer. Here's Josh, putting them through some rather thorough product testing.
