Invergarry Freeride trail construction
it takes lots of raking and rolling until the trail is smooth and firm

Progress in Invergarry is all weather dependent at this time of year. Another great day of progress was had yesterday on the Freeride trail. We had a lot of Volunteers out in force shaping and packing the newly formed jumps and rollers.


604 pumptrack

I dropped by the 604 pump track last night to snap a photo. The track is running smooth and looks gorgeous with the springtime transformation taking place. That is all.

Mitch Delfs

This edit of Mitch Delfs aboard his Kona Operator felt more like a car ad than mountain bike video... in a good way. Filmed somewheres in the dusty Australian outback.

Brian Mullen riding really fast with low bars in a muddy and rainy Cascadia, Washington.

Chris Akrigg

An in depth look at what Chris Akrigg is up to at the moment and a bit about what makes him tick. As you'll see, he's still not up to full speed since falling off a cliff but he's getting there. Shot and edited by Alex Rankin.

Shlohmo - Remixed

This is the brand new video for a really excellent new track. Our friends at Video Marsh dropped this gem late last night.

The video seems to delve into a massively deranged psychology. The first and last shots of this video add an extremely dark overtone to an otherwise hypnotically pleasant hallucination. The high contrast between the wonderfully colourful abstract moving shapes continually merging and dissolving into one another offset by vague images of remembered faces floating to the surface increased the impact of the already undeniably dark and macabre finale.

There is definitely a lot of hidden stuff in this one, you might want to watch it again.

Invergarry update

The start of the freeride trail

new lines
The contractor has been hard at work on the features we designed for the new freeride trail in Invergarry Park. Here are a few photos we took this morning in Invergarry Park.

While the bike park is under construction, we ask that you give the machine operators room to do their work. Please Stay out of the work area. It won't be long until its complete!

Valmont bike park

This is QuadCopter aerial video of Valmont bike park located in Boulder, Colorado. This City park has everything, gravity fed lines, all levels jumps, and features normally reserved for resort-type bike parks like Whistler. What the folks at Alpine bike parks have created looks epic.

La Poma bike park

Roy Groenewegen going big on the dirt jumps at the La Poma bike park. This is a City bike park located in Barcelona, Spain. In my opinion this is the future of City bike parks, rider-designed and executed.


We are pretty pumped that the bike park in Invergarry park is under construction. The contractors have been busy building some really great Whistler-style features on the new freeride trail. They will also be building a pump track and some other really cool features. I'm not going to give too much away, so just enjoy this time-lapse of a some building/packing work being completed.

Remember: While the bike park is under construction, we ask that you give the machine operators room to do their work. Please Stay out of the work area. It won't be long until its complete!

We will still need lots of help after the machines are done. There will still be some packing and finishing of the new trails, jumps and the pump track. We also hope to have some tree planting days closer to fall.

Anthony Messere

We've known for a while Anthony Messere is on the Red Bull program. It was his birthday yesterday so it is now up for official release, which means the rest of the world gets to find out too! Go Anthony!

Hear about the start of his career and his excitement about joining the team. Expect big things from this kid, including his first feature length film segment in Anthill's "Strength In Numbers" coming out this May. Credit: Red Bull

Stop Motion

This Transition TR250 build would have taken more than one hundred years to film. Well done.
