In The Flow – Andrew Neethling is a must watch

Hats off to Andrew Neethling and Shimano for producing a film that showcases so much learning material it’s like a reference text book. This film is one of the best I’ve seen since Vaea Verbeeck’s Horizon for being able to follow an elite level riders posture & technique.  It can sound strange, but one of…

Who’s Marine Cabirou?…..if only they’d given us more

In my opinion, this film is a good watch but came close to being genius. The film follows French downhill pinner Marine Cabirou who rides for Scott Factory Racing.  It offers snippets of information about what Marine gets up to in an average week looking at her riding, gym work and in the voice over she tells…

Brendan Howey in Rain or Shine

Commencal backed Canadian freerider Brendan Howey is back with another edit that offers some great opportunities to excite your mirror neurones.

His latest offering is no exception. In Chris Akrigg Process: The Tree, Chris talks us through lines he’s envisioned he can ride on a fallen tree…

Dunc Shaw, of Drop and Roll tour fame, has released an excellent tutorial on how to manual on his YouTube channel. Within the video he gives a excellent level of description and advice on how to pop then maintain a manual along with ideas for how to progress. I’ve previously featured Duncan’s riding on here and if…

You Are Awesome

Why do elite level sports teams sign children at the age of 5? Because they know it takes around 10 years worth of practice to achieve elite level ability. If you’re young and wanting to be the next Aaron Gwin or Rachel Atherton (or be your best in any career or part of your life)…
