The Issue Is - Representation & Inclusivity: Justin Williams gives his perspective on representation and inclusivity in cycling.




Mike Aitken - Fitlife: Mike brought a well rounded onslaught to the streets, dirt, and ramps of SLC, Utah and delivered a certified legendary section.




Mike Aitken - That's It: Such a well rounded rider.




Mike Aitken - Electronical: A classic segment.




Mike Aitken - Anthem II: His final legendary part.




Ross Capicchioni And His Amazing Story: When Ross Capicchioni was 17, he was lured into a bad neighbourhood in Detroit's notorious east side, shot three times and left for dead. If Capicchioni had perished, his murder likely wouldn't have filtered all the way up to us, it would have read, just another kid gunned down in a bad part of a big city.




Classics - Andrew Reynolds - The End: The board control of Reynolds involves one of the best snap-flick-catch styles of all time. Theotis introduces Drew's part from Birdhouse's 1998 epic vid.




Meet The Michael Jordan Of Dogs: There are certain icons of sport that are so transcendent, they change their respective sports forever—Jordan, Tiger, Serena. But there is one athlete you’ve probably never heard of who also belongs in that rarified air, one who can run faster and jump higher than all of them: His name is Spitfire, and he’s a 7-year-old Whippet. But what makes Spitfire so special is more than the fact that he has four legs, it’s the powerful bond he has with his trainer, a 15-year-old girl named Sydney. Together, they are rewriting the record books of the canine sports world. Mina Kimes brings you their unforgettable story.




The Floating Mountain: For several years, BD Athlete Mary McIntyre has been researching a mythical mountain rising out of the Sea of Japan known as Rishiri. Rumored to have 5,000-foot runs from its alpine summit down to the ocean, yet revered for its fierce wind guarding its flanks, Rishiri had remained an elusive objective until just recently. Last winter, Mary teamed up with fellow BD Athlete Parkin Costain, filmmaker Eliel Hindert, and photographer Garrett Grove, and traveled to the floating mountain of Rishiri.




DCP - Deeply Rooted: This short film reflects on DCP's 20 year career as a pro snowboarder, from his Quebec roots to his home in BC with family moments in Colorado in between. DCP grew up in Quebec and was part of the 418 Crew, a crew that influenced many more Quebec riders to either migrate west to Whistler or pursue a career in the streets of Quebec. DCP's goal with this film is to express gratitude to the snowboarding community and the snowboarding lifestyle itself.




Iran - A Skier's Journey: “Should we go?” Chad Sayers and Forrest Coots decide, indeed, they should. Upon arriving in Iran, they are welcomed with profound warmth, stunned by the immense beauty of the landscape and culture. Threaded through Tehran’s bustling bazaars to Isfahan’s dazzling mosques, the two skiers get a glimpse at the complex dichotomy that divides public and private lives in Iran. As journalist Elaine Sciolino writes, “Iran can be dazzling, and light-filled, a reflection of its complexities; but it can also be cold, confusing, and impenetrable.” To travel to Iran is a reminder of the virtues of travel itself. Nothing is as it first appears. At private ski chalets atop slopes of the Alborz and Zagros mountains, rules and customs relent.

 I remembered that story from the Joiner Lucas song/music video. What an unfathomable event to have as part of your Rolodex of life experiences.

 Figures like Mike Aitken are the antidote to all the father figures here telling everyone to pad up, be safe and not be stupid kids anymore who are trying to look cool. We need videos with him and other BMXers to debeige the Pinkbike. I am tired of this "educational harm reduction" movement on what used to be gravity riding oriented community. All the endurance "athletes" who sudenly want to learn to play and instead of figuring out how to practice and how to have fun while practicing, they start with putting protection on for 1 hour, then stretch and warm up with use of functional movement strategies to achieve balance and mobility. Too bad they have no balance and no mobility when on their bike

 @WAKIdesigns: wtf are you talking about? aitken has paid the price of crashing without a helmet!
everyone is free to ride however they want and feel comfortable but you wont see aitken rolling without a helmet these days

anyway, he's always been uber stylish and one of my favourite riders to watch

 @valanidi: it's the idea that you can stay safe and progress, have a free, clear mind if you just turn yourself into a Power Rangers version of Sir Lancelot. I always wear a helmet and knee guards and then pad up more according to occasion, but what I read all over the place is people condescending anyone who isn't padded all the way up. And I can imagine them taking great umbrage when watching folks like Mike Aitken. Guess what man, he focused on learning to ride, not laerning to fly under condition of not falling and being in pain. Risk vs Reward. If you think half of jumps on Friday fails are so risky you need to wear you plastic lancelot outfit, you're in the wrong business Papa.

 @WAKIdesigns: Wow. What a careless assh*le of a statement considering what happened to Mike Aitken.

Padding up has never taken even taken 20 min, let alone 1hr, in my entire life, not even when using a full compression suit, this is just ignorant & redundant hyperbole. Sticking a helmet on takes less than 1 minute and deconstructing the stigma of helmets/safety gear is far more productive than blaming helmets for the slowing of skills development, which just ain't a thing.

 @valanidi: and olease don’t turn into Waki tells people to ride without a helmet. If helmet was the only issue safety first kind of guys condescend others about... office job, responsible father of a family. Who can barely bunnyhop, puts 3kg of armor on his kid telling it jumping is cool. All the gain and no pain. Cuz armor.

 @WAKIdesigns: are you talking about the people in full body protection and full face helmets riding xc trails?? Yeah I'm sick of them too

 @rockyj: I don’t care what they do where, as long as they don’t fk around telling people to smarten up and pad up. As we see there are some all or nothing folks out there...

 @WAKIdesigns: sounds like you need to do a little "ride-along" in the trauma ICU where I work. That ought to help you recollect your thoughts on reality, seatbelts and helmets are the result of watching many people unnecessarily die or get seriously injured from something that is preventable. I rode my BMX bike without a helmet for 5 years and suffered several concussions as a result. And now I ride my mountain bike with a helmet because I care about my life and my kids having a functional dad. Come alongside as you do a 12 hour shift with a 19 year old kid who is now an organ donor from wacking their head too hard. Watch the family lose their son and bear witness to the life long emotional damage that causes. Just a damn ignorant comment from you when you don't actually see the reality of making good decisions regarding wearing a little protection.

 @AirBud: I have never told anyone not to wear a helmet and that is not what I meant here. I like it how it is interpreted this way... proves my point

 These "whippets jumping into a pool having been trained to perfection by a 15-year old" videos are getting old PB, try thinking outside the box a little.

 I may be in the minority here but I had enough after the “finest proteins, supplements, massages, and acupuncture” segment.

 yeah, part from the gaps at the top its really great to watch a more natural line. Personally I find it way more exiting to see a rider send a natural feature than trick a manmade one.
