If you’re not  familiar with photographer Dan Milner and the Trail Ninja series, you should be. Outrageous adventures, hilarious commentary, and fun videos. 24 Months of Insanity captures the best of the Trail Ninja for episode 22. If you enjoyed that, check out all 21 other episodes on Epic TV.

The annual White Style freeride competition was originally scheduled to go off on January 30th. However, due to Mother nature’s disobedience with the amount of snow they’ve received, it has been postponed until February 13th. The unique event will still take place in Leogang, Austria with some of the biggest names sending it on even bigger jumps made out of snow. Provided Winter actually arrives…

How’s your winter going? Wet? Muddy? Snow? Whatever the case, we hope you’re making the best of it like the crew from RockGuardZ in Hopton, Shropshire.

Bombtrack has been blowing it up with new bikes and clips to introduce them. So why not keep things going with The Needle.

The Needle is a seriously tough track bike suitable for daily riding but with the performance to compete on the criterium race scene. Designed in partnership with Olaf Wit, the geometry is dialed in to perfection and the Reynolds 725 tubing ensures a rigid yet comfortable and light frame. The welded crmo forks are built for strength but the curved shape helps to soak up the bumps, giving you more control and the confidence to place the bike exactly where you want.
