With some on edge sections, great drone footage and breathtaking scenery, this edit is making us crave adventure. Enjoy the video, Tom Oehler’s riding, and some behind the scenes with the making of.
Setting off from the mountain’s infamous pyramid peak, at 3,152m Piz Boé is the highest mountain in the Sella Range of the Dolomites. Tom Oehler threads his way down singletrack that would make a mountain goat uncomfortable, hopping rocks with fathomless drops on either side. On the way he meets friendly hikers who give him a push and finally ends his descent in an Italian cloud forest where he meets his crew.
It really is a two-wheeled adventure that bikes a fine line between earth and sky. Thankfully Tom is no stranger to white-knuckle rides, having started his two-wheeled adventures before he could walk. Tom began competing in trials in 1997. Since then he’s racked up a host of titles and world firsts, including World Records for the fastest 400m hurdles on a bike and the highest wall climb.Red Bull Bike
