Added a new video Steps to the Top - Brandon Semenuk at Joyride 9/1/2015 8:53 AM
C138x104

For all three rounds of the Crankworx Slopestyle Championships, SRAM followed the athletes onstage and backstage, documenting their struggles and triumphs. It started back in March, when Crankworx made its debut in Rotorua, New Zealand. In one of the most picturesque slopestyle settings imaginable, the Brandon Semenuk - Brett Rheeder rivalry resurfaced, and the two were thrown back into the spotlight. In Rotorua and Les 2 Alpes, pressure got the better of Brandon Semenuk. But in Whistler for Red Bull Joyride, he fed on it, basked in it, stomping a run top to bottom, and once again it was his turn to to be on top of the podium.

Added a new video Nino with Tom Ritchey in Search of the Beginning 8/18/2015 11:42 AM
C138x104

N1NO`s 5th chapter of his #huntforglory webisode is all about a journey to the roots of mountain biking. The 3x MTB World Champion meets one of the Godfathers of mountain biking, Tom Ritchey, at his home place in Skyline, Northern California. Tom Ritchey is the guy who was racing bicycles, which we call "mountain bikes" today, back in the 1970's on his backyard trails in the hills of Skyline and Santa Cruz. He built the first mountain bike frame, and since those early days, every new invention has been chased by another.



Over the years Tom's focus has shifted from frame building too component design, but his obsession with functional, lightweight and reliable equipment has not waivered. Many Ritchey designs and manufacturing methods have become industry standards.


Mountain bike racing has always been something Tom Ritchey was passionate about. 3x World Champion Thomas Frischknecht was part of Ritchey`s Racing team in the 1990's. Still today, Tom creates World Championship winning parts for the top guys - like N1NO. As a Co-Sponsor of SCOTT-Odlo MTB Racing, Tom contributes to the Team's success with innovative products and his experience.


N1NO and Frischi not only went out riding on the single tracks where mountain biking was born, but Tom Ritchey also showed them where the first frames where welded and where all the inspiration came from. N1NO got to know more about the early days, and Tom Ritchey explained how mountain biking came into existence.
