After a weekend racing at Fort William and headed into another racing at Leogang, the Pivot Factory Racing Team has a new short with some jazzy music to get in the mood to hit the trail. Currently ranked #6 on the Women’s World Cup Downhill circuit, Swiss National DH champ Emilie Siegenthaler knows how to have fun from the pump track to friendly trail riding, to throwing her Phoenix Carbon DH down race runs.
Check her riding home trails around Bienne, Swizterland or drop in past the break for more of this week’s video highlights…
Josh Gleave is a cow farmer from Cheshire, UK. He’s passionate about his collection of tractors and has built a custom bike rack for his classic blue Ford. He usually shows up to local house parties on a tractor. On dating apps, his opening line is usually about types of lawnmowers and country music, not word of a lie! He REALLY likes country music. He’s even got a belt to tell everyone.
Oh, and he rides bikes. Specifically an alloy Transition Patrol that he likes to roost on fresh back forty trails. Josh didn’t wash the jean shorts he had on throughout the whole of filming, which was about 5-6 days, you’ll see them get progressively dirty throughout the video. In true Transition style, Josh necked a beer at the top of a track on the final day of filming, and then ended up slinging himself around a corner by hanging onto a tree. Classy.
As somewhat of a sideshow from their Rangers Program, Blackburn partnered with Niner and New Belgium Brewing to create Roll With It, a film about camping by bike. “Camping by bike is an adventure everyone can experience without over complicating it.” says, Robin Sansom, Blackburn’s brand manager. “This film, at the core, is about the unexpected rituals strangers have when they embark on a bike and camp adventure together. We look forward to bringing this to communities all over the world in hopes of inspiring more people to get outside.”
The adventure hits the big(gish) screen in Los Angeles and New York City this month, and you can host your own movie night with it, too. Details at rollwithitmovie.com.
Caletti took home the award for Best Finish at NAHBS this year, and now they’ve made a video to show off the bike and the process.
