Founded in 1955 by Jean Rédélé, French auto artisans, Alpine, became one of the most revered names in racing, achieving massive WRC, Formula 2, and Le Mans success before being purchased by Renault in 1973. Eventually Alpine faded into obscurity and was shelved by Renault in 1995, but Jürgen Clauss's passion for the dimunitive driving machines never died, and the latest episode of Petrolicious—which features Clauss jumping behind the wheel of his iconic A110—makes that fact abundantly clear. Check it out and then keep your eyes peeled for the return of Alpine in 2016.
The whole younger-dude-in-a-grandpa-outfit schtick might seem a bit played by now, but that doesn't make this footage of 20-year-old ripper Danny Lion rolling up to the park in full geezer mode with a crew of AARP-reppin' accomplices any less hilarious. The looks on the local skaters faces as Lion starts tearing apart the bowl are absolutely priceless. Check it out, you'll see what we mean.

Catch an edge popping off that rail (even on a basic warmup) and you're going to the lodge on a ski patrol sled.

Last week we showed you Brandon Semenuk's amazing unReal segment, a single tracking-shot video part that had the mountain bike community scraping its collective jaw off the proverbial floor. If you were wondering what sort of "movie magic" went into the creation of this part, however, you were not alone, but thanks to this behind-the-scenes look, we now have our answer: No wires. No drones. Just a 4K camera in the bed of a pickup truck. Needless to say, sometimes old-school goes a long way.
We already gave you a glimpse into Vittorio Brumotti's wild world of road-bike trials riding, but now the Italian stallion is back with another crazy edit in the beautiful hills Livigno. Lets this serve as a reminder that nothing—least of all equipment—should stop you from pursuing what you love.
