NWD 8 - Jeff Lenosky: A truly classic segment.





Tyler Fernengel in The Michigan Video: Fernengel has been blowing minds for a couple years now. This section rules.





Ender Ender - Van Homan in ''Holy Fit'' The 2015 Nora Cup winner for 'Best Segment of the Year' ended with one badass rail setup.





Holy Stokes! A Real Life Happening - Official Trailer: Nearly two years in the making and featuring an international cast of skaters ranging from street legends to transition destroyers to hyper-talented up-and-comers rolling and rallying across the planet, Volcom’s forthcoming feature film Holy Stokes! is shaping up to be the feel good hit of the summer.





Ali Boulala Opens Up About Life After Skateboarding - Epicly Later'd (Part 4/4): When Epicly Later'd first started, one of the first things I wanted to do was an Ali Boulala episode. I imagined doing a whole season just on him. He was the perfect subject of the show - hilarious, amazing at skateboarding, infectious to be around, yet also a bit of a mystery. Where and how did he become how he is? There couldn’t be anyone else on Earth quite like him.





My War - Jamie Thomas: Even though Jamie already had an untouchable skate legacy and was closing in on 40 years old, he still waged an epic battle for his Cold War ender—a trick that is gnarly by any standard.





Balance - The Kamchatka Section: Terje, DCP, and JP Solberg hook up with Max Baloo and head to his lodge at Snow Valley in Kamchatka, Russia for an amazing couple weeks.

Levi LaVallee - Urban Snowmobiling: Throwing down!




Our Changing Climate: Over the last couple of months we embarked on making a short documentary about climate change. We had the opportunity to witness the effects of our changing climate firsthand and to meet the people on the front lines of campaigning for action. The film wouldn't have been possible without the support of WWF.

 As someone who rides mostly alone, that San Juan video made me very jealous that bike crew runs deep!

 fun stuff & great riding! but, @scottsecco i'm questioning your judgement posting this vid in the movies for your monday. looks like a lot of people & a lot of filming in a zone that needs less of both. all of a sudden the epic adventure and solitude involved in such a pristine area looks like a bro edit at a bike park. not cool. especially the meadow riding footage.

 As a two-stroke moto rider who accepts that science is real, I appreciate the irony! However, driving or flying all over to ride a bicycle/ski/hike/go to work/volunteer for the Peace Corps isn't carbon emission-free either... I think, in the modern world, one has to accept a certain amount of environmental hypocrisy in one's actions in order to maintain any hope of staying sane or having fun.

 don't let them blame you, the little guy. giant industry eats up 95% of the water and shoots out 95% the pollution. one branch of the US military eats more oil in a month than all of our cars combined in a year. yeah we can do our part to reduce our personal consumption, and should, but the real problem makers aren't being shackled with regulations, you and i are. lies and twisted info are being used to justify more laws and more taxes on the wrong people

 Hands off my beef...moooooo, pffffpuuuuh, whaaack, season, sizzlllcrackkll, guuulp, yuum, buuurp, another taco please.

 @reallybigmantis , I hoped that bit about the military was true so I made the mistake of checking. From some brief googleage, the US transportation sector released 1.5 billion tons of CO2 in 2014 (www.eia.gov/tools/faqs/faq.cfm?id=307&t=10). 60% of that comes from personal vehicles (needtoknow.nas.edu/energy/energy-use/transportation), so that's 900 million tons. And the whole DoD released 70 million tons of CO2 in 2012 (www.dailyenergyreport.com/how-much-energy-does-the-u-s-military-consume-an-update, latest year I could find). The big guy is voted for and funded by little guys, so let us be careful with our dollar and our vote.

 Their were once millions of buffalo/bison roaming the great plains and parts of the southwest. Vastly out numbering the current beef cattle in the same areas. The specific beef 'flatulence' argument I keep hearing doesn't hold much credibility. Not a 'denier' or what ever. Just stating facts.

 f*ck your beef. Watch Cowspiracy if you haven't already

 Very mature @PLMedia. I bet you win many debates with that approach. I said zero about all other facets of factory farming. My point was specific to the flatulence point. I am going out for a steak. Have a good night guys.

 if it wasn’t for global warming we should be in a mini ice age . so well done every one . enjoy before it all f*cks up

 Dumbest vid yet.

 bman- Not much science in "there were once..." opinions. Deforestation, waste and indeed cow farts are huge contributing factors in greenhouse gases.
  • + 2
 So, did our factories and cars cause the ice age that happened thousand of thousands of years ago? Hmm. I love the way that the left has changed the rules of their argument from "global warming" to "climate change", as for the past 20 years the global average temperature has actually dropped and been on the decline. Funny.
  • + 0
 @scott-townes I am sure I could pull up some more accurate figures regarding the bison/buffalo populations prior to Europeans arriving in North America. The "Deforestation, waste" was covered in by me saying my "The specific beef 'flatulence' argument". Therefore my point is still valid.

As for the deforestation, that happens mainly in South America (not condoning it), and not in the US beef production. Most of it, not all, is done in the great plains areas of the US. In the end, I come to Pinkbike to escape politics, global warming/climate change, Kardashians, etc. etc. I come for bicycle related article to escape the other wordly issues as I suspect most of us do who visit Pinkbike. We should work to keep most of that out of this site. Plenty other places to debate those things if one desires to.

 ^ We're talking about global impact. If you have any facts to back up your claims, go for it. As for now you're just spewing an opinion.
  • + 0
 I am truly sorry your comprehension level is below par @scott-townes, my apologies. To clarify once again, I was NOT talking about a)global impact, b) deforestation, c) manure run off d) chemical pollution, etc. etc. Again my quote was SPECIFIC to the topic of flatulence. The point is the there existed the same or more buffalo/bison that there now exists beef cattle. Therefore the flatulence level was about the same.

I will dig up some numbers if you really need specifics and don't beleive there used to be millions of them roaming the plains. However, the number I have seen tossed around in documentaries about their slaughter are between 30-80 million.

Again, sorry you are so upset about the topic of flatulence on a bicycle blog. I am going out to ride. You might benefit from the same. Think I might have another steak tonight afterwards

 I'm still not seeing any facts.
  • + 0
 Scott, "...I will dig up some numbers if you really need specifics.." Which means I will get to it. Sorry you don't believe buffalo/bison never existed in very large numbers. Keep you posted.

Since you are so d-bag and keyboard warrior about it let me clarify I am NOT denying climate change, I am NOT approving of all corp farming techniques, I am NOT approving and/or advocating for deforestation.
  • + 1
 yawn.... yup I'm sure you will.
  • + 2
 Ok. Well, I apologies for not being as all knowing and eco warrior type as you. If your goal is to be an advocate for vegitarianism or vegans, well done. I am sure being an a*shole /keyboard d-bag wins you many converts and friends. Waiting for insults to my mother for your next post. Now again, my orginal point was not denial of environmental impacts, ONLY about a specific point of flatulence (bovine farts) and the numbers since the est net gain/loss of animals is historically about the same. So for a quick internet search (Google), I came up with some numbers: (keep in mind I had to condense some of the results here)

According to buffalofieldcampaign.org : "Wild buffalo in America once numbered 30 to 60 million, ranging from Virginia to Alaska and all points in between. Today the only buffalo to have continuously occupied their native range number approximately 4,000 and are being forced to live inside the inadequate confines of Yellowstone National Park."

"Plains Bison Mysteries That Remain Part I: The Buffalo Population and Why It Crashed " Estimates of bison numbers vary from 30 to 75 million. 50,000,000 to 60,000,000 are the most common numbers cited as total buffalo population in the early 1800’s. .... They fluctuate up and down in response to many factors, including the availability of food, water, other habitat attributes, predation, disease, reproductive performance, climate and so on........There are some records of the number of buffalo hides and bones the three main railroads transported during the great post-Civil War slaughter. These inventories are incomplete and extrapolation from them is imperfect, however the numbers are staggering. Estimates are that 31,000,000 buffalo were killed and transported by rail for bone and hide between 1868 and 1881"

"Estimates of numbers range widely. …….estimated (far more reasonably) numbers at from 30 to 1000 million in A.D. 1500. Ernest Thompson Seton, the naturalist, was the first to estimate population on the basis of what was called "range allowance"

 Have a good evening. I am thru discussing cow farts on a bike blog. Look me up if you are ever in Denver, private message me. We can have a beer and discuss the finer points of bovine activism.

 nick1957, exactly my point and thanks for further clarifying the fact. It's very egocentric to think that man causes such phenomena.
  • + 2
 Look, even if there is no anthropomorphic climate change, which scientists agree there is, we should cut down on pollution as much as possible. Businesses need to be regulated, and we should watch what we eat, for health and kindness' sake. I thought all of the climate change deniers were moto guys, but I suppose there is some crossover, hence the stupidity.
  • + 1
 Egocentric. Wait, do you seriously believe that we "lack the power" to influence the climate or something? We could bomb the whole planet into a radioactive wasteland if we felt like it. Most people on this earth are not lucky enough to have stood in a wild place that is completely unaltered by humanity. I never have. Arguably such a place no longer exists with the role we have played in extinctions and pollution of air and water. What part of "I am become death, destroyer of worlds" don't you understand?

 Hey @bman33 that's great that there were once 60M Bison in the USA. There are currently 90M cattle in the USA, and the global cattle population (supply and demand of beef is truly global) is 1.4Bn. 1.4Bn > 60M.

So yeah, modern industrial farming has created a just a few more quad-stomached fart machines than previously existed.

 I hate to be a stickler, but they actually belch, not fart the methane.
  • + 2
 no matter the end of the cow that the methane comes from, there has to be something wrong with clear cutting rainforest in Brazil for cattle grazing so that obese americans can eat 8 mcdoubles everyday.
  • + 2
 The mcdouble thing really does bother me. Honestly, everything we do as humans hastens the end of the world, but we should at least enjoy it. Mcdonalds tastes like garbage anyway, so they might as well make it vegan.

 @tttyler, have you actually held a photoionization detector to each end or something? Whatever comes out the back end, it CAN'T be good. But seriously folks, how about this: everybody get spayed, then party like it's 1999. Problem solved in ~70 years!
