It’s hump day, which means we’re all jonesin’ to get out on the bike more, especially if school’s still out for summer. Here’s three of the latest edits that came in, each providing a different type of motivation to get those early morning and after work rides in. Above, Pivot-Reynolds Enduro teammates Antoine Caron and Brice Shirbach spent a good portion of the summer of 2017 bouncing back and forth between East Burke, Vermont and Lac Beauport, Quebec.
FROM PIVOT: Many of the trails found at Sentiers Du Moulin in Lac Beauport are feature heavy, raw, rough, and have helped shape Antoine into the rider he is today. East Burke has proven to be a home away from home for Brice, as he has found himself in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont for upwards of a month per year over the past several years.
FROM CANFIELD BROS: Canfield Brothers team rider Lorin Whitaker has been riding the red ridges of his backyard in Virgin, UT, nearly as long as he’s been riding bikes. But his talents extend beyond freeride, and his riding—and larger than life personality—made him a staple on his high-school cross-country team, the Flying Monkeys.
Filmmaker Seti Gershberg visited the Utah desert to follow along with Lorin for his final cross-country race of the season as well as a lap down the infamous King Kong freeride line.
And to polish it off and really make you wanna get out there and train, Radon’s XC to DH “crossover” video shows both sides of their World Cup teams in a rapid edit of race action.
