Vital is killing it. Comparing this article to counterparts on other websites, this is just so much better. Loving the multimedia aspect. Seeing the trails discussed in detail in the review is sick.

Once the lines are etched in, there's nothing left to do but send it. 

With the scouting done, it’s time to build. Darren Berrecloth and Ricky Brabec head out with mountain bikes and shovels in tow and a few jumps in mind. As the sending begins, they each take to the bike they know—and love—best, making for some prime doubles action.

As professional athletes, Darren Berrecloth and Ricky Brabec come from two very different, yet relatable worlds—Darren is a mountain biker and Ricky, a cross-country moto racer. Both live lifestyles that are equal parts passion and hard work. Wide Open is a series that documents a week in the desert with the two as they enjoy the freedom and good times that only two wheels and zero obligations can provide.

Added a new video Gullyver's Travels with Geoff Gulevich | Ep. 1 1/27/2017 12:17 PM
C138x104

I've crisscrossed the globe as a competitor for many years, but I rarely ventured beyond the mountain resorts that contests are held in. As I get older, I've started pushing to escape the industry bubble and get off the beaten path more. The premise behind Gullyver's Travels is to motivate everyone to step outside of their comfort zone and explore new places. 

Episode One takes place in the French Alps and features long time friend and Rocky Mountain teammate, Tito Tomasi. A world traveler who also happens to be a phenomenal mountain biker, Tito has ridden some of the most remote places on earth. His personal motto is vive la vie, and we intended to do just that.

Our mission began in the village of Abriès. We pedaled as long as we could before the grade forced us to dismount and carry our bikes. We reached the Malrif Lakes, which sit at about 8,000 feet, and set up camp for the evening. Just before the sun dropped we got a fire going and filled our stomachs with beer, bread, meat, and cheese—we were in France after all.

The next morning, an early rise followed by four hours of carrying our bikes on our back was all made worth it when we arrived at the snow-covered summit of Grand Glaiza. After enjoying the spectacular views, we pointed our bikes down the 10,800-foot descent that lay in front of us.

Once back in town, Tito and I parted ways. He was off on another adventure and I was off to Bike Park Chatel for some big rig rippin'. It's no wonder why the Bike Park Chatel locals are all shredders, the park is filled with trails that have great flow and a number of sizeable features. 

After two days of racking up vertical, it was time to head home. A big thank you goes out to Tito for being an amazing tour guide, and to Bike Park Chatel. Their hospitality is always second to none.

Until next time, see you on the trail!

— Gully

Added a new video DarkFEST - Week 1 - The Build Begins 1/27/2017 8:31 AM

Nico Vink, Sam Reynolds, and Clemens Kaudela dialing in the massive DarkFEST line for this year's jam!

DarkFEST - Week 1- The Build Begins

The boys from Pure Darkness are back at The Garden Route Trail Park, but this time the plans are a bit different. Sam Reynolds has brought 2 master builders with him, Clemens Kaudela, and Nico Vink to make the massive jumps even more crazy for DarkFEST!

"I brought Clemens and Nico to help me make the jumps bigger and darker than ever!" - Sam

Judging the size of things on video is often very misleading and both the newcomers were very surprised at the size of these jumps, but they dove right into the diggers and got to work. Adding new lines, tweaking a few things to make it more friendly for DH bikes and smoothing the eroded lips and landings was first on the cards. 

"When I first got here and saw the step up and the site my thoughts were, go big or go home...man, maybe I should have stayed at home." - Clemens

The infamous giant step up now has 2 hipped landings on either side and the right line leads into a left hip on the last jump of the line, which looks absolutely insane. They are also busy with a long low jump over the run-in to the step up, which will make for some spectacular shots with guys jumping over each other going mach1!

"When Sam showed me the jumps, I was blown away by the sheer size of these things. Pretty nervous to ride them to be honest" - Nico

Having 2 diggers here now means that the speed of progress has doubled. You can literally watch the jumps grow. Nico is loving it too much and spending all day in them getting things dialed in.

A bit of rain came through on Wednesday, which slowed down the building, but made the dirt tacky and perfect to work with, so it's guns blazing again and can't wait to see the rest of the ideas come to life.

Lots more plans to unfold, keep an eye out for the week 2 update before all the riders come down to shred the goodness!
