Riding a Downhill Pumptrack with Pro Freeriders: We were invited to come ride Nanaimo's finest trails with pro riders Jackson Goldstone, Jordie Lunn, and Katie Holden. From moss-lined single track at Westwood Lake, a paved pumptrack at the Steve Smith Bike Park, and even a brand new machine built downhill pumptrack at Doumont, Nanaimo has something for everyone.




Mondeo Family Wagon Chronicles - Dusty Sundays: In the second installment of the series no one remembers, Dusty Sundays follows the story of a group of young men attempting to ride their bikes with varying degrees of "food" poisoning. Featuring: a bunch of pests.




Matthias Dandois 2018: Everyone's favourite French flatland movie star is back and this time he's upping his street game​.

Tammy McCarley - The Trip 2018: Tammy McCarley has been killing it for ages and shows no signs of slowing down.




Hunter: Hunter Lawrence shredding.




Wes Kremer, Not Another Transworld Video: Enjoy the smooth ledge-tech wizardry of Shane O'Neill, Theotis Beasley going hard in the paint, the solid stylings of Mike Anderson and Nestor Judkins, and the laid-back Tom Penny-esque nonchalance of Wes Kremer.




Adelante - A Diego Nájera Part: The first full-length part from Diego Nájera.




Running On Empty: The average person walks Corsica’s merciless GR20 trail in two weeks. Ultrarunner Rory Bosio is not average. With guest appearances of duct-taped hiking poles, anti-chafe gloves and local pizza, see what the 118 mile trail looks like in 50 hours.




Liv Along The Way: Since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. She was twice crowned World Champion in sport climbing, and eventually expanded her professional horizons to mixed climbing, ski mountaineering, and base jumping. In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 4000m peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.




A Simple Machine: The La Grave cablecar is an icon of big-mountain freeskiing, a unique lift that accesses some of the most classic unmarked and unpatrolled steep-skiing descents in the Alps. As La Grave faces historic challenges—its main road closed by rockfall and the continued operation of the cablecar in doubt - we take an insider's view of “Le Telepherique” and what’s at stake in the uncertain future of this backcountry mecca.




Max Your Days: The solstice represents that ideal day, ushering in summer and offering the maximum amount of that sweet nectar called daylight. So go forth and get filthy, breathe heavy, and for the love of all that’s holy, squeeze the day 'till it pushes back. Max your days.

 Can you imagine how much better the world would be if ever mom was like Steve Smith's mom? Doing whatever she can to make her son reach his potential? Thank you Mrs Smith for helping Steve reach his potential, the world is a better place because of it. ????

 Not to be a downer nor hate on the comment posted but if every mother was like his then there would be a lot of kids out their feeling entitled. What made his relationship with his mother so special is that they BOTH loved each other unconditionally. She took care of him and I have no doubt in my mind he helped her out in many ways as well.

My point is: it should work both ways Smile

 Is it just me growing out of inspirational titles like "Live along the way"? Hey, you live along your way, don't tell me how to live. You went to the mountains and did action sports. Good for you guys and gals! Now if you let me get back to work so that I earn money I will maybe spend on one of pieces of equipment made by companies you get sponsored by...

That's the new frontier of inspirational quotes for athletes: Hi guys and girls! I'm here, look: it's beatiful! Thank you for supporting my sponsors with your money from working in offices, on building sites, picking garbage, I wish you were here but in a funny way: I'm fortunate that you aren't. Yes... keeping living your life, dream big, find yourself Byeeee!

 A lot of athletes work extremely hard for their achievements and often enough risk their life while they're at it. It's not always fun even for them.

 @colincolin: Oh yea, because studying, working and raising kids, renovating house, keeping relationship then trying to be good at whatever hobby is a walk in the park, please... dentists and lawyers, those lazy basterds!

Work extremely hard and risk their lives... you mean like firemen?

 well said. This is a great study in why I enjoy watching extreme sports movies. The summer solstice video was kinda the opposite of inspiring to me. It didn't portray genuine people with the kind of passion for something that inspires me. The start of the simple machine is a great example of the opposite. I don't give a crap what you actually do, I want a window into someones connection to something. That is where the Steve Smith memorial video just nails it. You know that man loves doing what he does. it's infectious.

 Was in the hospital a couple of weeks ago after breaking my leg. While in the ward I got to talking to one of the nurses and telling her about how I broke my leg. She then started telling me how she shuttles her husband and their son around the hills of Mt Kiera and Mt Kembla (Wollongong, Australia). Straight away I started telling her about Steve Smith and his mum. Wonderful women, both of them.

 Every time I see that tribute it makes me so happy and sad. I wish I knew him, he seemed like the nicest and happiest guy around. You did a great job raising your him Miss Smith! We were al lucky to have been able to watch him growing up through his videos and experience his love of Mountain biking. Thank you, Stevie. RIP

 Alright, let me see if I remember his right. I seem to remember a crankworkx race, when Stevie hoped off his bike, I believe near hecklers rock, and jumped back on and didn’t even seem to lose anytime.

I have been searching for that clip for a long time. Probably in one of these vids, I apologize for not looking. Sneaking some bike addiction in my office.

 “Are you crying again?” Yes! Prayers are with his mother, family and friends he left behind. To Stevie’s mom so heart broken for your loss but find strength knowning you raised a good man who was humble and down to earth and all around good man.

 Think Stevie was one of the riders that inspired me massively to ride. I used to watch his segment from seasons every time before I used to go out and ride
