Morocco B Side Morocco B Side

Barel dropped in on a sick line that had non-believers crying "photoshopped" when it made POD. Well here's a little more proof but you will still have to wait till September to see if he nails it.

Check in to nwdfilms.com in the coming weeks to see some more b-rolls of the Morocco trip.

Mad March Racing releases the once-secret "Helmet Trainer" to the general public. Privately used by current and past Champions, The Helmet Trainer trains the athlete for proper body position in all types of mountain biking. Designed by World Master's Champion Shaums March, The Helmet Trainer has proven to be the most important aspect to an athletes training. "I came up with the concept back in 1996 while racing in the Norba Circuit," explains March. "When riding those early courses I could tell that there were specific body positions that made me more stable on the bike, and thus faster down the course. I just needed a way to train and make sure I was always using the right positions. After a bit of trial and error, I created The Helmet Trainer."
