Jeff Lenosky - Trail Boss - Northern Exposure: Follow me as I race the sun on Northern Exposure, a super fun technical trail in Durham, CT. There are option lines galore and I even try to find a few new ones in my last Trail Boss episode of the season.




A Christmas Story: A young biker rides up a snowy mountain to get dinner at a self-service hut (thats how we roll in Bavaria). He rushes downhill to enjoy a simple meal with his little family - in front of a cozy fire. Doing what you love with who you love is what we consider the perfect Christmas Eve.




Graviti Driven - Intense Canada Christmas Video: Graviti Driven - Intense Race Team Canada funny look at how other than the Grinch can steal Christmas.




Geoff Slattery - 'Still United' Full Part: A DIG Magazine caption once read, 'watching Geoff Slattery makes my eyes watery!', and how right it was. His section in 'This Is United' back in 2010 opened up with a massive bang (quite literally) and he then went on to grace our eyes with fast, creative and often downright scary riding. Well time goes on but nothing much changes when it comes to Geoff's honours degree in bike control as you can now witness for yourself via this online premiere of his new 'Still United' section. Enjoy the next five minutes and have those hankies ready. Incidentally, has anyone else noticed that Slattery is an anagram for the words 'art' and 'style'...




Corey Martinez - 'Still United' Full Part: Corey Martinez has been at the top of the game for ever now. It almost seems like he's been using a cryogenic freezing process to allow him to keep putting out bonkers DVD sections time and time again. For his 'Still United' part he decided to mix things up and go away from the classic rock song format that he's been used to (his intro will remind you of those old tunes and just how many bangers there have been) and straight up party on his bike with some Three 6 Mafia - we think it works a treat. Has anyone else put out this level and number of sections over such a long time? T-Nez is one of the greatest of all time and his 'Still United' section epitomises that longevity of pure savagery. Feast your eyes on the madness! We're not worthy!




NorCal Mission with Kerley, Gray and de Reus!: We set up camp in the Bay Area of Northern California with Chad Kerley, Mike Gray, Josh de Reus and experienced local guide Christian Rigal showing us some of his gem spots.The golden fall weather days were spent clipping up and a couple sessions even flowed into the crisp nights. With a tight crew and no schedule to follow, the trip was one to remember! Video: Christian Rigal.




Bangin! - Best Of 2017: How do you cherry-pick the best tricks from 52 weeks of The Berrics' Bangins series? Very carefully.




The Kiwi Twins in Kenya's Running Capital: The tiny village of Iten, Kenya is home to the fastest runners in the world, more record-holders than anywhere else…and a pair of testy twins from New Zealand.




Pala Raceway with Axell Hodges: Video: James Hughes.




Chris Rubens' 2017 Season Edit: If there’s two things we know to be true in this world, it’s that Chris Rubens skis more powder than most and that Chris Rubens skis pillows better than most. For evidence to support these claims just give his 2016-2017 season edit a watch.




Angel Collinson's Full Segment from TGR's Almost Ablaze: In TGR’s film Almost Ablaze, Angel Collinson impressed with one of the most talked about segments of the year. She was the first woman to ever open a TGR ski film, her exploits earned her a nomination for Best Female Performance at this year’s Powder Awards and finalist at the Banff Mountain Film Festival. In honor of this recognition TGR is proud to release Angel Collinson’s full segment for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!




Song For The Nomad: Kyrgyzstan's capital city, Bishkek, is a modern whirlwind of sight and sound. But in a concert hall in the heart of the city, the keys of a lone piano carry out of the chaos and into the timeless Celestial Mountains beyond. Into a landscape of horsemen and shamans, and young souls brought to life in the heart of nature. A tale of two worlds, together they play a song for the nomad-- a requiem for a time gone by.




Annapurna III – Unclimbed: “Annapurna III – Unclimbed” is an award-winning 12-min documentary featuring the 2016 expedition to the Himalayas of Nepal led by David Lama together with Austrian alpinists Hansjörg Auer and Alex Blümel. Join the team in their feelings of fatigue, anxiety, exposure and ordeal during their 5 weeks attempting one of the world’s greatest, unsolved puzzles of alpinism: The unclimbed south-east ridge of Annapurna III.

 Legitimate question, not trying to rabble-rouse: What's up with a lot of BMX riders and no helmets?
  • + 9
 I dont ride BMX, but im assuming its for maximum sty. Its like downhill pants and T-shirts, it looks cool. Unsafe, but it looks cool.
  • + 8
 Grew up riding / racing BMX. It has always been nigh impossible to get kids to wear a helmet. We only wore them at the racetrack, and only because we had no choice. The person who figures out how to make helmets cool to kids will be my hero.

 @EndlessWheelie: when your friend crashes in front of you and splits his melon open and spends the next 90 days in a coma. Once that's burn in your head you always put your helmet on cool or not.

 Idk either. I can’t let my kids watch these incredible bmx vids because of no helmets. I’m not gonna have my kid’s brains spilling out onto the street simply because it’s “not cool” to wear a helmet. C’mon bmx people this is 2018. We all know about how bad head injuries are. Get over yourselves and put a f*ckin lid on!
  • + 5
 @EndlessWheelie: I mean, the guys in these videos aren't kids anymore. If they start wearing helmets then kids who watch them might be inclined to follow suit. Sounds preachy but I guess they do have a level of responsibility for as long as they're putting videos out. Perhaps that's the way to make helmets at least acceptably cool to kids.
  • + 13
 Just maximum steez points, no further explanation needed. Maybe it's time for BMX companies to step up to the plate and make helmets obligatory for their team riders. No helmet while filming, your part isn't coming online. Not only will they keep their riders safe, but kids might be more persuaded to start wearing a helmet in the first place.

 @NinetySixBikes: maybe its my business side and probably my age, but im surprised the insurance companies dont make it mandatory. Who would want to insure a company knowing their sponsored riders are doing bonkers shit with no bucket on?
  • + 1
 @pargolf8: Good point, asked myself the same question. But seeing the fundraisers and charity events pop up everytime a rider gets seriously hurt, I'm guessing they are not very well covered in any sense of the word.
  • + 2
 @properp: True story. You don't have to be a cyclist of any variety for very long before you hear/see/know someone who ate shit and nearly died. Watched a guy lose the front at 20+ and hit the deck so hard he didn't even slide. It's pretty unsettling when your buddy just... isn't there for a little bit. It's more unsettling when he starts bleeding out of his ear. Fortunately his helmet took the brunt of it and broke in several places along with his face and collarbone. He lived but assuredly wouldn't have without a helmet.

On a lighter note and to answer the original question: an old school BMX guy told me it's so you have to land your tricks. You don't get to not land it if you're not wearing a helmet.
  • + 2
 Its pretty much all the street riders that dont wear helmets, all of the park guys wear them but 98% of street riders dont wear helmets, and its pretty much just because it doesnt look cool or they dont like how they feel.
  • + 2
 @pargolf8: as for the ins part of this, you bring up a good conversation starter.

To my knowledge, almost all sponsored riders (BMX) are paid as Contractors - e.g. no 1099/w2.

Aside from the obvious income tax implications for those sponsored, it (contractor status) limits the liability felt on behalf of the company. The ins that a company carries covers the product they sell/market not the folks getting busy...

In all seriousness, I tend to make light of the helmet stuff in the comments. It's def a major issue. It's difficult to know the rationale for not wearing one. Hardcore image, maybe... I've been guilty of it so many times I've lost count.

 yes they should definately wear helmets, but youll also enjoy the videos more if you accept that its their choice and not your problem and focus on how sick the riding is, this happens every week when theres a bmx edit on here. (and by the way i will always wear a helmet my self unless playing around on my driveway pretty much)

 Still trying to wrap my head around that look back whip that Axell did. And the transfer beforehand. Style for miles.

 Dylan Stark Vid was mesmerizing ..wow....hopefully he does get a sponsor, preferably from a helmet company....

 Brandon Semenuk gave dylan his old dh bike, and yes he has sponsors. He said he is pretty keen to get out to some fmb comps this year if he can make it out to them. And im pretty sure he is hooked up by S1 helmets, such a sick rider
