Back in the Day: Ft. Devens Supercup

First the men

Like Meyerson said, “Can you believe this flyover?! Oh wait, that’s just a hill, you say? ‘Cross is sometimes hard, you say?” Huh and this was way before the “hard flow” favored by today’s course designers by race promoters, like McClung from MFG.

And the women

While racers lost lots of time on that muddy run up topped with a barrier, at the time the course was the anti-jungle ‘cross. Look how wide those lanes are for passing. Not too long ago, here in Seattle at North Seatac we had a drop off into a fire pit (not lit, of course, just the burned out logs), followed by a singletrack through brick and bramble. Part of the skill required was not crashing out.

Lots of racers riding by themselves in this event

Sliver Lake in 11

This weekend, racers are lining up at Silver Lake, arguably the hardest course in the area. It’s situated next to a lake and each lap a beach is stormed, before an ascent up the banks, into the trees, and back down…

Moments of Rampage

Of all the in-house content being produced, the brand storytelling in the bike biz, Scott stands out for the presentation and photography. Like this piece from the Red Bull Rampage. And as Jakob said, Arcteryx too

Snapchatting Bikes, Sure


Last time I hung out with my daughter before she headed off to college, she was snapchatting her foot to her friends while her brother played soccer. She got a snapchat from her roomie of their dorm room and we talked about that for a while; specifically, where the fridge was gonna go. Then she snapchatted something else and I lost track of all the snaps, but yup that’s what they do. These teens today and Casey Neistat explains the trend in the video.

Between snaps

While we’re posting photos of our ride/race weekend to Facebook, and worrying about Ebola, or the damn Secret Service!, they’re snapchatting everything.

Of course, the geniuses that run Snapchat, ride bikes…

KCE Cross

KCE

KCE on the Stairs

As seen on Instagram and according to Robert Higdon, the best KCE mystery mailing yet, maybe ever. KCE is like the Banksy of bikes in your mailbox. We haven’t gotten one yet, perhaps not sexy enough or haven’t spent a night out drinking with the artist, whoever it is. Search for #KCE on social networks, skipping over the selfies and butts, and you’ll find more art….

Danny Macaskill: The Ridge


Macaskill mountain bikes the Isle of Sky in this beautiful video, while we’re writing Issue 17 of our magazine that’s dedicated to fun this fall. We’ll set aside the competition, tech, and kit for pure enjoyment of riding, and tell you all about it in about a week.
