RockShox Releases the Full-Length HD Game of B.I.K.E. (Language Warning)

On September 16th, RockShox pros Ryan Howard and Red Bull Rampage winner Kurt Sorge played a best of three game of B.I.K.E. up in Kamloops, B.C. RockShox put up $5,000 for the winner, as long as the game was played over Facebook on the RockShox wall so everyone could watch and participate.

What they didn’t tell you was in addition to the low-res webcams they shot the live game with — RockShox also hauled a full film crew and a mini-helicopter up to the 'Loops to catch the action in full cinematic quality. (You didn’t really think they’d let Howard and Sorge throw down and only take a few camera phones, did you?)

And now RockShox has released the full game, along with extended footage, the Vegas segment of the loser's henna chest tattoo, and they threw out a little teaser for what they have planned next year.



Here are a few stills from the film, starring Howard (Trek) and Sorge (Giant), judge Graham Agassiz (Kona), and “Mulligan” stand-ins Justin Wyper (Blk Mrkt), Sam Dueck (Norco), and Adam Hauck (Blk Mrkt).

May the Worst Speller Win.

Sorge and Howard play Rock Paper Scissors to decide who starts game two.

Sorge fires a huge Indian air on the big set.

Howard throws a massive 360 invert on the big set.

Aggy Shows Sorge some love after stomping a tailwhip.

Justin gets a little sideways on the flip-nac stepping in as Howard s mulligan.

 Stupid me, I thought it was a video game they were releasing. Why isn't there an xbox mtb game out there anyway? That's the only way I could ever throw down those moves - nah, whom I kidding, my ten yr old would kick my butt at that too.

 downhill domination for ps2, not quite realistic, but pretty fun, you can whip other riders in mid air to take them down

 dh domination is the best! tony hawk american wasteland is alot of fun on the bmx if u find the right spots

 Same here. was kinda bummed, but then again a video with Howard and Sorge isn't something to frown about.ha

 DH domination had some legit tracks, and the Karpiel was the best bike you could buy!

 there was Mountain Bike Adrenaline, that was is a little outdated as far as tracks go... controls kindof annoying too

 Dave Mirra Pro BMX on PS1 is the business. Legit dirt jumping physics.

 Semenuk vs Soderstrom would so amazing!

 yea! im almost more curious to see a rheeder vs semenuk, cuz they throw alot of the same tricks in contest, so it would be a real close battle (not saying soderstrom vs semenuk would be any lower caliber)

 I don`t know the exact rules to the game,but i think that when a trick is done once and it is clear the other dude can`t do it they should stop setting it.I mean Sorge could`ve just nac-flipped every single line and won or Howard could`ve barspined with the same result.Best video i`ve seen recently though.I was glued to the screen! Massive tricks!

 -yo dude, wanna play BIKE?.... u know, just throw some flips, tailwhips, and 360 for fun. The hard part though is to pick just 3 of our 3 million sick lines to ride it.

-naah, sounds boring...

 Why can Sorge do tailwhips but not barspins?
  • - 19
 Cause it's a lame, outdated bmx trick that isn't worth learning.

I hope silly contests like these don't become a trend. And a helicopter? Not necessary, waste of natural resources, unnecessary contribution to global warming.
  • + 16
 It's an RC helicopter you tool... as if they would spend hundreds of dollars an hour on a friendly game of BIKE, steezy as it is... and barspins are hella legitimate. And "silly contests" like these are what keeps biking fun, its one of the funnest ways to progress with a group of friends!

PS. How many of Protour's friends does it take to change a lightbulb?


Answer: Both of them.
