It’s the first week back of the new year, so round about time for a bit of distraction, yeah?
Brew up, tune in and slack off with this week’s mini movies…
MIA Santa Cruz – Colorado Trip
Dangerous Momo and Kilian went to Colorado in September to discover the local trails around Fruita, Palisade and Grand Junction. They brought back some great scenic footage and some extra kilos due to all the great food and beer they had during their stay!!
Many thanks to all the MIA Santa Cruz sponsors as well as all the hosts in Colorado who made this trip possible.
It’s January. Winter vibes have descended upon us. The nonsensical daylight savings time has drastically limited the amount of sessions for those on the full time workweek grind. Night riding is an option but it just doesn’t provide the same sense of satisfaction. But we are lucky in North Carolina. The mild temps and lack of substantial snow keep us riding throughout the winter. The rides are shorter, yet essential for maintaining skills from the previous season. Quietly mastering that new cornering technique until the birds start chirping and the flowers start blooming. The short rides build for the coming of Spring, Summer, and Fall.The time when the real sessions go down. With seven months of optimal temperatures in NC, enduring a few cold months chilling is nothing to fret.
The Aptos Post Office has been a legendary spot for the world of mountain biking for the past decade. It has been the training and proving grounds for some of the top professionals in this industry. In less then a month, this icon will be torn down. Tonight showed a mix of the last generation to ride this spot and a few local pro’s who still call it home.
IAN MORRISON | SPARTAN SAVVY
Whistler ripper/raconteur Ian Morrison investigates all sides of the multi-skilled Devinci Spartan in a whip-heavy edit that’ll send your head snapping. Not quite XC or exclusively DH, the enduro-equipped ride is difficult to pigeonhole, Morrison says. But after sessioning it for less than three days before Crankworx 2014, awesomeness ignited, visiting Euros delighted, and the Spartan became Morrison’s weapon of choice for the infamous A-Line Race. Join Ian and the Devinci/Alltrick’s.com squad and see how it all went down.
