PRESS RELEASE: Bike Unchained 2
• Watch the video to find out who wins as the two riders battle it out in their latest Sick Series Episode
• Best of five challenges. Two on the bike. Two playing Bike Unchained 2 on their phones. One final challenge where… they do both at the same time!The countdown until Christmas has officially begun. As the first snow falls mountain bikers across the Northern Hemisphere have to finally face the harsh reality: the season is coming to an end. Generally, that means less time on the bike but the shredding doesn’t have to stop.
Austrian mountain bikers and trials riders Fabio Wibmer and Elias Schwärzler figured they still had just enough time to have a bit of fun before the chocolate eating and gift unwrapping gets out of control.
“Every winter we always try to ride as much as we can before the real bad weather shows up. Once it does, there´s always the next best way to spend your time: bike games. We've been having a lot of fun playing Bike Unchained 2 so we figured: lets up the stakes of our next episode and mix it up a bit.”
“We played both the Downhill and Slopestyle modes so that if we fell behind on one of them we could recover on the other. The hardest part was definitely the last challenge though: playing the game while riding the bike at the same time!”
Bike Unchained 2 is the ultimate MTB mobile game experience, available for both iOS and Android, where players can race in Downhill and Slopestyle mode and be mentored by some of the best athletes in the sport. A new update dropping on the 12th of December includes a brand-new Arctic location as well as Holiday themed outfits and levels for special events, among other new features.
