Some great footage of Cam McCaul sessioning the Hood River gap while filming for NWD 9.
A nice flashback to the 2006 riding scene, NWD7 has held up to the test of time surprisingly well. The riding is great, and the filming shows why the NWD series is still going strong. If you feel guilty about enjoying such a fine piece of bike video for free, then this would be the perfect occasion to grab yourself a Box of Disorder for more classic freeride goodness.
Have you been feeling that your bike is just too comfortable and efficient lately? Do you hate the mobility, simplicity, and ease of modern bikes? Well, Gizmodo has dug up the solution. There’s not much to be said other than watch the video, and then go and hug one of your, ahem, ‘real’ bikes.
This video features some great segments of dirt jumping, urban assault, and of course the ubiquitous BC singletrack with dog in tow. If nothing else, it’s worth watching just to see Carl Buchanan refuse to stop his session after breaking his handlebars in half. Carl’s street and park segment is definitely the standout of the video, and there’s little doubt that we’ll be seeing more from him in the future.
The Transition crew set out to highlight their riders who manage to hold down a full-time job, while at the same time riding at a level high enough to earn a spot on a factory team. The fact that these riders have the same amount of riding time as the rest of us, but are able to throw down with the best riders out there, is a testament to their skill and dedication.
Bang Bang tags along with two big-name freeriders, Aaron Chase and Cam McCaul, as they compete in the Qashqai Urban Challenge. The full video isn’t without its ups and downs, as it includes Chase’s season-ending injury from crashing hard off of a ladder bridge and compressing his vertebrae.
