Kilian Bron - Cross Countries: In his new edit "Cross Countries,” Kilian goes on another tour, this time on some of the most beautiful North American trails. From the roots of mountain biking in the USA, to the dense Canadian forests and rock slabs of British Columbia, the best spots are all on display. The steep chutes of Sedona, Squamish Jurassic Five, bike-life in NYC, the Pemberton train gap, slick rock in Moab or a Honolulu ridge line… Kilian boarder hops (Cross Countries) in the most beautiful way, as he moves towards a new chapter in his riding life with redesigned video format ideas, so that you are evermore immersed in his extraordinary adventures in the future. “I don't define myself as an endurist, nor as a downhiller, or a freerider. I'm just a mountain biker who expresses himself with his favourite bike. The one on which I can venture into all areas and places unknown. In this case, crossing the USA and part of Canada with my very personal vision of trail riding… Which turned into Cross Countries!“ - Kilian Bron. Rider: Kilian Bron. Directed by: Kilian Bron & Pierre Henni.

Chasing Kasper: A bicycle, in its essence, is a way from one place to another. But sometimes it’s also a way through something. For Tessa Treadway and her nine-year-old son Kasper, who lost husband and father Dave Treadway to a backcountry skiing accident in 2019, mountain biking has helped move them through grief. For Kasper, it’s a hyper-focused outlet for his errant energy. For Tessa, it’s a break from the chaos of single motherhood, as she discovers the surprise gift of joy that flows from chasing her oldest son. Video: Nick Waggoner.

Mahshid Hadi - The Refuge: Meet Mahshid Hadi. Where she grew up in Iran, it’s illegal for women to ride bikes. But she always was rebellious. “On my bike I feel powerful in a way that I had been told I wasn’t allowed to be my entire life,” Mahshid says. “I want to share those feelings of empowerment I feel on my bike with other women.”

Vinny T & Candice - Two Pinned Siblings: Vincent Tupin, aka Vinny T, aka Vinny Too Pinned. This "too pinned" nickname has stuck to Vinny's skin since a shoot at Châtel back in the days when he kept shooting himself off the tracks in front of Andreu & Luis Lacondeguy because he was way too hot. Tupin, Toupine with Andreu's accent, Too Pinned with Vinny's unique riding style. Is it that unique though? Not sure after seeing little sister Candice coming up to speed now. ''I met Candice a decade ago when picking up Vinny at home to go filming and nothing would have made me think that one day I would be out in the bike park filming with both of them.'' Time flies, the Tupins too. Video: Gaëtan Rey.

Andrew Pearson - Out For Recess: [Recess is arguably every kid’s favourite part of school. It means going outside, stretching the legs, and getting pelted by a stray dodgeball. What does Recess mean when you’re getting your Master’s Degree to become a Physician's Assistant (PA)? For Andrew Pearson, it’s getting in a few laps between classes. Born in Tucson, Arizona, but living through most of the western states, Andrew started riding in Sun Valley, Idaho at 16. He started with long backcountry rides on moto trails, but as his riding improved he branched out into many more styles of riding. He’s never felt like he falls into a specific discipline, but rather enjoys, “a good ol’ fashion mountain bike ride.” He’s now on his way to becoming a PA at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. Future plans include bridging his love for medicine with his passion for bikes. He’s not sure how yet, or where life will take him after graduation. But, he’s excited for the time he’s spending in sunny California. Video: JP Purdom.
