Who knew tree hugging could be this gnarly?
Goodwood Festival of Speed is always, well, good for vintage car enthusiasts and supercar voyeurism, but is always lacking in the excitement department...that is, until Mad Mike Whiddett and his "BadBul" Mazda SP3 RX8 take to the infamous hillclimb...
If you're still sleeping on snowbiking, it's time to wake up. One of the wildest new adventure sports on the planet, snowbiking—an epic collision of backcountry and motocross freeriding disciplines—blew up this winter, with pioneering riders Brock Hoyer and Reagan Sieg leading the charge. Red Bull caught up with Hoyer and Sieg—as well as FMX legend Ronnie Renner—to discuss how this young sport got here and where its going. Loam or powder. It makes no difference to them.
I don't know about you, but when we think of carving lines in the Alaskan backcountry, with think of helis, summit-to-ocean steeps, and plenty of pristine powder. Freeride Vincent Tupin and Martin Söderström had a different idea, however, taking to America's final frontier in the middle of summer for one of the raddest mountain bike edits we've seen in awhile. If you're ready to trade the groomers for some fresh loam, then this one is for you.
I'll freely admit, one of the most terrifying moments of my life was getting caught in a Mt. Washington thunderstorm in the dead of July. The wind was whipping over 40 miles per hour, the temperature dropped 30 degrees in five minutes, and increasingly large chunks of hail began falling out what had been, the last time I checked, a bluebird sky. I've told this story a number of times over the years—reinforcing Mt. Washington's claim to the "world's worst weather"—but today is the last time, because today is the day I watched Tim Johnson climb the damn thing on a bike...in January. Kudos my friend, you are a f'ing beast.
Remember that video of trials riding on a road bike that went viral a few months back? Well Yoan Birelli just took that concept to the next level, putting his Cyclocross bike through the paces on a jump filled mountain bike course. Needless to say, this one will rattle all your fillings out.
Tim Knoll has one of the most unique perspectives in today's BMX industry, and his latest part—which finds the flatland wizard hitting the streets of Berlin for some mind-boggling hi-jinx—is proof of that and more. Check it out. Go pop some Excedrin. Check it out again.
Here's something you don't see every day: An F1 car with chains on its tires tearing apart a snowy ski course in the heart of the Alps. Kudos to Max Verstappen and Red Bull for making this happen, because this is, without a doubt, one of the craziest videos we've seen this year.
Until then, however, check out Snowmusement, which finds Toby Miller, Red Gerard, and his brother Brendan Gerard hopping fences for a winter shred session unlike any we've ever seen.
We aren't sure how or why—probably some blip in the cosmic space-time continuum—but Jesper Tjäder's new Red Bull jib masterclass, Unrailistic, didn't smash the internet into a billion little pieces upon its release last week. Everyone deserves a second chance, though, so check it out and see what we mean when we say this is some of the craziest rail work (yep, that was a DOUBLE CORK out) we have ever seen.
