Tom and Bas van Steenbergen have made waves this year both in downhill racing and slope style events. As the 2013 riding season wraps up and the snow starts to fall, the Dutch brothers from Kelowna, BC are still out riding and doing what they do best: throwing some style into riding technical terrain.


The 2013 riding season was challenging as they traveled far and wide, participating in World Cup and BC Cup downhill races, participated in the first ever mountain biking event at X-Games, and getting a last-minute surprise invitation to the Red Bull Rampage. As they head into the off-season, the preparation they’ll put into training and riding will mean that you can expect to see them on podiums and in even more video edits in 2014. Here they are railing berms and sending it off jumps on their local trails.

 Holy damn... that was one of the most flowy things I ever seen. They look so fast yet at the same like they are not even trying, just playing - it's almost annoying Smile Great edit, great riding!

 Def. one of the more stylish riders out there. I liked the shot where he gapped the snow-covered wood on that drop. "oh hey this might be a bit slippery... might as well gap the whole thing"

 yea I noticed it as well. Now that you say it, and I watched it again, there are many spots, when they seem to spontaneously react in the air - "oh! I'll tyre tap that", "high or low, high or low? mnah I'll send it!". I know I'm talking crazy, but that's like acting.

I'm guilty of supporting short travel bike argument and talking plenty of other arguable bollocks, but when a video like that comes, there can be no doubts about it: such flow, such majesty of movement can be achieved ONLY on a DH bike. Hands down to the big bikes.

 that part made me cringe. I can't believe TBS Bike Parts (whoever they are) would put their name and logo on a video that starts off like that. very offensive.
