Added a new video PUMP BATTLE WORLD CHAMPS 12/6/2016 11:22 AM
C138x104

After Pump Battle stops in London, Berlin, Riva del Garda, Willingen and Arnhem it was time for the big finale, the Pump Battle Worlds. Time to crown the first ever Pump Battle World Champions.

Over 80 BMX and MTB riders made their way to the Netherlands for the Pump Battle Worlds, 70 men and 10 girls. During the head 2 head finals, at midnight inside the club, there was only room for 16 men and 4 girls. On the world longest modular pumptrack ever built (over 250meters) riders battled to make the cut for the head to head finals.

QUALIFYING: All riders had 2 chances to set their best time. After all chains were removed, it was time to get behind the Pro BMX Gate and give it their best shot. At the end it was Crankworx Les Gets Pumptrack winner, Chaney Guennet from France who was fastest, in front of Olympic BMX racer Twan van Gendt and Swiss DH rider Noel Niederberger. Laura Brethauer from Germany clocked the fastest time in the women category, in front of Geraldine Fink from CH and Junior BMX World Champion Ruby Huisman.

HEAD 2 HEAD FINALS

At midnight is was time for the big head 2 head battles, who would be crowned as the first ever Pump Battle World Champions. On the worlds smallest possible modular Pumptrack riders went head 2 head. Two riders dropping in at the same time, only one rider getting out... The rider who catches up the other rider qualifies for the next round, or if a rider gets of course he/she is disqualified.

Girls finale Big favorite for the win was Laura Brethauer, but a mistake in Semi finale against Geraldine Fink forced her to take part in the small finale. Here she took the bronze. The big finale was a crazy one, after 20 laps BMX Junior World Champion Ruby Huisman took her 2nd title of the year leaving Geraldine Fink with the Silver. Congrats!

Mens finale Big surprise of the evening was local 15 year old ripper, Tristan Botterham. He took out Crankworx Pumptrack champion Chaney Guest. In the other semi finale Noel Niederberger was up against another local, Mirko Hendriksen, who earlier that night took out BMX champ Twan van Gendt and former 4X World Champion Joost Wichman. But Noel kept it cool and qualified for the big finale, where he was up against Tristan. After the gate dropped it looked like Tristan would take the gold, but Noel re-grouped and started pushing.. at the end it was Noel who looked like to have the better endurance and was crowned as the first ever Pump Battle World Champion.

We would like the thank all riders and our partners: 360Boost, Icycle, Pro Gate, Mobii timing, Magura, Modular Pumptrack and de Radstake for making this amazing event happen.

See you next year and #bepumped

Added a new video Laurie Greenland - Smooth Operator 12/6/2016 5:10 AM
C138x104

Laurie Greenland stepped up to the elite DH ranks this year, dealing with the transition from junior in his usual calm, calculated relaxed style. His riding technique as been described as unique; flat out, loose and at times wild! He is in fact a smooth operator, with a calculated determination to get down the mountains in the most effective and quickest time possible. Finishing 9th overall in the 2016 World Cup rankings and ending his season with a surprise silver medal in the World Championships, Greenland is certainly shaping up to be one of the next DH superstars. Check out his 2016 season recap video to see why!

Added a new video Remi Thirion on the Isla Bonita | Pounding La Palma 12/5/2016 1:47 AM
C138x104

La Palma, often nicknamed ‘Isla Bonita’ or ‘The Beautiful Island,’ was the destination of choice for Rémi THIRION and his Brushed META AM V4.2 to finish off an excellent downhill season, having achieved a 6th place world ranking!

From the first day on location, we were blown away by the beauty of the place. The Latin American influence was obvious and it’s just 3 hours by plane from France. The island is so diverse; we came across all types of terrain from coastal paths and pine forest to jungle and volcanoes, all in just three days!

"This META AM V4.2 is a good progression in evolution. It allows more commitment in downhill and through the technical sections. The bike is also more forgiving thanks to its increased travel. In addition, it's lighter and pedals better than it's predecessor." - Remi THIRION

The new Meta AM V4.2 is available today. More information at: http://www.commencalusa.com/meta-am-v42-c102x3044465.

Added a new video Claw Shreds King Kong by Supermoon Light​ 12/1/2016 12:29 PM
C138x104

On November 14, 2016, the moon traveled closer to the Earth than it has since 1948 — and we'll have to wait until 2034 until it gets this close again. With only a few days' notice, Darren Berrecloth seized the opportunity for an epic attempt to ride one of Utah's most technically demanding trails — located on the edge of all four Red Bull Rampage event sites — in the dark. Using only a headlamp, watch "Bearclaw" throw caution to the moonlit wind in the video below. "Such an unreal experience shredding [King Kong] in the full moon last night," said Berrecloth on Instagram. "[It] brings a whole new meaning to blind takeoffs." 

"Kong is the line that turned my life in a direction I'll never regret," continued Berrecloth — a harken back to 2002 when he first rode the trail alongside Rampage event organizers, who immediately granted him entry into the unique invite-only contest, which successfully catapulted his career transition from BMX to MTB.
