What’s Enduro Mountain biking?

I feel like I woke up one day and everybody started calling this thing Mountain biking my friends and I have been enjoying for years “Enduro?” to try to make it sound cooler? I guess maybe?, so I got up with Enduro team Rudeboy from ColoRADo to poke fun at the whole over marking of the Whole thing and to remember have fun riding bikes and don’t get caught too much in the hype.

A big thanks to COMBA for making the trails we filmed on and Team Rudeboy for staring in the film. Kyle lofstedt, Cutis Cole, Reid Bokken and Adam Prosise

[R]EVOLUTION

The first documentary/movie about Downhill scene in Greece is out and its free to watch.

After a year full of races, gathering the footage wasn’t easy. Then I decided that something was missing. Interviews and extra shots filmed in every place where a race took place. I also include some extra places just to get an image of how downhill, as a sport, is standing amongst other activities in Greece. Hope you enjoy!!!

SRAM | The Relentless Pursuit | Then and Now

Incremental enhancements. Perpetual improvements. Revolutionary Innovation. When advancements are continuously made to every attribute of every component, the result is overall performance that is simply second to none. And to real cycling enthusiasts, there is nothing more gratifying then achieving the ultimate ride. The best part is we just keep making it better.

This is what SRAM is all about. Sure, a casual rider will appreciate solid performance, reliability, dependability and all the standard qualities one would expect. But it’s the riders who live and breathe bicycles who love us most because bicycles are what we love, too. In fact, they’re our only love.
