What happens when four like-minded adventurers head into one of the world’s wildest mountain ranges with nothing but their mountain bikes and enough food to survive for 10 days?
The answer? What doesn’t happen? Terrifying lightning storms. Raging-river crossings. Snow-covered glacial pass traverses. Mind-melting descents. Constant fights with vicious dogs. Tense encounters with over-zealous border-patrol guards.
All of the above were just another day following “The Trail to Kazbegi,” a self-supported mountain-bike mission through the highest reaches of the Caucasus Mountains in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. Our four-man team—adventure filmmaker Joey Schusler, Bike magazine editor Brice Minnigh, photographer Ross Measures and mountain man Sam Seward—spent half of June 2015 exploring the crown jewels of the Georgian High Caucasus on a feature assignment for Bike.

The type of magnesium you choose is important, as some forms can cause gastric discomfort or diarrhoea (the last thing you want during your training or race!). MetaMag® is a patented form of magnesium, found in the Endura sports range, which assists cellular energy production, as well as boosting muscle recovery and supporting healthy muscle function. The magnesium contained in MetaMag™ is bound to an amino acid and is absorbed quickly and effectively, without causing any digestive discomfort.

Who said people need a different bike for on and off road?! As a lover of all things dirt I love this video for more than just the technical skills. There's a sense of delicious satisfaction in using a road bike like that especially when that particular bike is a $16k carbon road bike used by Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish to win the Tour de France.

We spent four weeks in the summer of 2012 building two lines in Lofoten, Norway; a dirt line and a big bike line. Our goal was to capture world-class riding in the untouched and unique nature around Lofoten. The fast shifting weather and continuous problems with getting the lines working left us with only a couple of days to complete the film.
This is a highlight clip featuring all the best action from the project.
Epic Mountain Bike tour hunting single track in Canada... in the words of the makers... "Each town in British Columbia seems to offer better singletrack than the last one visited. To prove what’s out there Dave Roth and Seb Kemp cycled, on mountain bikes, from Whistler around the Strait of Georgia, stopping in Squamish, the Sunshine Coast, Powell River, Cumberland, Hornby Island, Parksville, Duncan and Saturna Island.
This trip is about the pleasure of the road and the thrill of the trails. We want to show everyone that, yes, nothing is easy, but the rewards of seeking soothe all hardship.
We want to remind the world that adventure is on your own doorstep, if only you get off the couch to seek it. It is about celebrating the world we ride within. It is also about the communities and individuals that dare imagine, build, and nourish so that mountain biking can flourish."

He described the course as an “endless single track, with technical tight turns and fast rocky descents.”
There's a mammoth effort involved to co-ordinate and record the action of a multisport event. This course in north Queensland involves a 13km paddle, 4.2km run, 13km paddle, 29km mountain bike and an 18.4 km trail and a beach run.

Epic downhill mountain biking at it's best.
It doesn’t matter, how good a descent is. At the end, I always ask the same question: Is there a better one? In order to find a final answer, the riders traveled to the Valais. This is the story of their search.
If you're looking for something that will inspire and blow you away at the same time, then look no further than this truly amazing video with athlete Josh Dueck performing a freeski backflip. It's amazing!
