This Is Peaty, Season 2 – Episode 7
It was a slow start to Peaty’s 2013 campaign… Building through the year and gaining speed whilst others faded, Norway was set to be his World Cup highlight, smashing his way back into the top 10 and just missing out on a potential podium place, behind his team mate Greg Minnaar!
Carrying this form and confidence into the final round in Leogang was key and Peaty didn’t look set to slow down at all… After a huge off in practice, some thought he might take it easy, but once again he powered through to a solid 9th place finish in Finals and also got to cheer the pet Rat on the podium!
Thailand is a place of many things… If you have the money, i’m pretty sure you could do ANYTHING you wanted. We only touched the surface last year, so another trip to Chiang Mai to see the Loose Riders, with Ratboy and Sambo in tow seemed like a plan.
Another hectic week, with bikes, beer, ladyboys and bars, we were all ruined and ready for home.
Check out the full story inside Episode 7 and be sure to catch the season Finale next month…
Kirk McDowall Raw Mountain Biking | Over the Edge, Ep. 1
For the first installment of Over the Edge, we wanted to strip away the distractions and start things off on a simple note. We took the fast, loose and dusty forest of Harper Mountain and let Kirk McDowall do the talking. As it turns out he’s a pretty quiet guy himself, so he just let the riding, mountain bike and environment do the talking instead.

Enduro World Series 2013 // A season`s recap
The Enduro World Series was created with the aim of uniting the world’s mountain bike enduro racing community. To cover the needs of our athletes in this new format of racing, we developed a revolutionary tire construction that unite a low rolling resistance with high puncture protection and reliable TL-ready properties, the patented SUPER GRAVITY technology.
The 2013 EWS series was the perfect place to test the new SUPER GRAVITY range and to prove that a SUPER GRAVITY tire is the perfect tire for this kind of riding.
We`re proud to work with outstanding athletes, such as Nico Lau, Adam Craig, Tobias Woggon, Max Schumann, Kelli Emmett or Julia Hofmann, who raced the 2013 EWS and helped us making the best tires!
Some shots of great 013 enduro season…showing training on DH, roadbike etc. For 014 we will beat more filming!
Kamil Tatarkovic / Autumn Riding in Czech
Autumn in the Czech Republic is always a good time for riding bikes. Racing season is over, free weekends ahead of you and there are still a few days with nice weather. Another thing is that the colors in nature are coming out and everything is more attractive and colorful.

Sven Martin Shoots Crankworx // A How To
This feature takes us behind the scenes with Sven Martin, one of the most recognized downhill dirt shooters at the world’s premiere mountain bike festival, Crankworx. This week-long biking event in Whistler BC, attracts the world’s top riders from every event, including downhill, cross country and slopestyle, just to name a few. With over 25 thousand spectators, it’s become the largest mountain bike festival ever.
The high speed action makes it extremely challenging to capture through photography and video. Those who are aren’t prepped and ready will miss the shot. The combination of the event’s high-paced action, and difficult to access locations only adds to the intensity. Needless to say, Sven has mastered this process, making it look easy. Press play to catch the chaos and see him in action, doing what he does best.
