Let's go long, This 12 minute descent used to be known as the Canaries but recently had a name change to Armageddon. There is a brand new level that has been added close the the saddle where we first dropped into the trail. From there it's go, go, go. You have a few options of where to go as the trail splits and forks off into various deviations which were unfortunately closed when we rode there this time.

Whistler is the home of mountain biking. The world’s best trails, the sickest jumps and the biggest MTB competition of them all: Crankworx. Pro riders and spectators alike flock to the British Columbian mountains to compete and watch the world’s best mountain bikers ride and race, and our very own Blake Samson was amongst them. Blake was lucky enough to take four (yes that’s right, four) bikes with him out to Whistler, and had entered the prestigious Air DH, Pump Track and the Whip Off events. Here he gets up close and personal with A Line, Garbanzo, and maybe a little too close for comfort with some jurassic cheese. Keep an eye out for the upcoming collaborations!

Two mountain bikes. Different designs. Aluminium and carbon fibre. Different wheel sizes. One origin. Neil and Blake compare Nukeproof’s flagship Mega, the Enduro World Series winning bike, and the original 2012 model where the Nukeproof Mega story began. How far has mountain bike technology developed in six years? Named after the world’s premier downhill race, the Mega Avalanche course which challenges riders to race down glaciers and rocky mountainside, Nukeproof know how to build a bike. Sam Hill has piloted a Nukeproof Mega to multiple EWS victories in the past few years, proving that it’s not just marketing hype.

Shared trail is often a topic of hot debate but should it really be so? Imagine a world where all trail users were aware of their surroundings, respectful to fellow users whilst at the same time, having all of the fun and enjoying the stellar scenery! In this week's episode of #ALLRIDEZA, we simplify things in order to unpack a few key elements needed for all types of trail users to really get along!

Has there ever been such a busy weekend of mountain bike racing action? Downhill and Cross Country spills and thrills in the UCI World Cup from Mont Sainte Anne. A dramatic battle for victory in the Whistler round of the Enduro World Series. High octane racing at altitude in the Leadville 100 and the Brek epic. We don’t know where to start…. Rider and fan favourite is the rocky course of Mont Sainte Anne, and all eyes were on Amaury Pierron and Greg Minnaar, but the treacherous rocks of Canada crowned another French victor. This time it was World Champion Loic Bruni who took the win over Danny Hart and Troy Brosnan, only his second World Cup victory since Cairns in 2016. In the Women’s race the return of Myriam Nicole did little to upset the top two steps of the podium, but this year it was experience over youth as Rachel Atherton edged Tahnee Seagrave to victory, throwing down a race run 20 seconds faster than her qualifying ride. In the XC it was a day of frustration for World Champion Nino Schurter who was still recovering from illness, but also suffered a broken chain and a puncture to remove him from contention. Instead fellow swiss rider Mathias Fluckiger stole his first World Cup victory from a storming Cooper and Kershbaumer. Jolanda Neff rode delivered yet another masterclass in mountain bike racing, escaping in the first lap from the rest of the field to ride in to a comfortable victory in the elite women’s race, whilst Langvad and Batty chased to complete the top three. In the Whistler round of the EWS, local riders failed to cause an upset, although for once it was not a complete domination by Sam Hill. Belgian maestro Martin Maes took his first ever EWS win. Although in the women's race it was no surprise to see Cecile Ravanel win all five stages on her Commencal. The annual Leadville 100 trail race saw last years winner Howard Grotts repeat his victory over a resurgent Hynek and young star Payson Mcelveen. Elsewhere in Colorado Jeremiah Bishop won the men's Brek Epic, whilst Carla Williams won the elite women’s race on her first attempt!
