Would you believe it? What began in 1985 eventually evolved into the sport we call downhill today. Hockey lids, rigid bikes and cantilever brakes... We can't even imagine trying to stop! In case you didn't know, the Kamikaze Games are returning to Mammoth Mountain this September. Bonus points to anyone that shows up on a bike and gear from the same era in which it began.
