Let Us Entertain You

This week we start completely off-topic as we venture to the desert to scale some rocks, although not the way you would expect; take a look inside the studio and the minds of some truly creative folks; travel to Norway for the fifth stop of the 2013 UCI downhill tour; watch the proper way give our bikes a bath; and listen in to Vuelta winner Chris Horner’s thoughts on the race and his career.

2013 Vuelta a Espana Champ and American Hero Chris Horner lets us in.

Here are three takes on the DH World Cup stop in Hafjell, Norway.

Evil Bikes—best soundtrack, most riding footage.

Lapierre Bikes—Second best soundtrack, hard crash.

Specialized Bikes—Most insight

So you couldn’t cut it as a World Cup DH racer? There’s something else out there for you, but it’s probably not a job as a toy sculptor either.

Not sure whether to laugh, cry, or be inspired by this one. Anyway you look at it, these are some impressive machines and skilled pilots.

Finally, if your bike is getting a little dusty, just take it for a swim!
