In honor of the start of the 2016 Tour de France, we’ll start the week’s video wrap up with this gem from Specialized. From a feature on Eddy Merckx’s mechanic, to epic photography of France, the video has a bit of it all…

For many of us, it’s summer time. The perfect time to get out there with your friends and make the most of beautiful weather. Pure Cycle highlights a growing concern with their latest spot. It’s time to shut down your devices, go on Airplane Mode, and get together for some fun!

Did you miss this earlier in the week? It’s worth repeating if so, and definitely worth watching if you haven’t. DH rider Phil Kmetz tests a $179 Huffy Carnage purchased from Wal-mart…and survived.

With serial number 60, this is one of the original Ritchey Mountain Bikes…the kind that all the pros were racing back when racing mountain bikes wasn’t divided into XC, marathon, enduro, short track, DH and more. It was just mountain biking. It’s part of River City Bicycles’ Bike Collection video series and it does a great job showing off the roots of the sport.
